 Use Reputation Enabled Defense

Information
Use Reputation Enabled Defense

You can use the Reputation Enabled Defense (RED) security subscription to increase the performance and enhance the security of your Firebox or XTM device.

Note: Reputation Enabled Defense is not supported on Firebox X e-Series models.

WatchGuard RED uses a cloud-based WatchGuard reputation server that assigns a reputation score between 1 and 100 to every URL. When a user goes to a web site, RED sends the requested web address (or URL) to the WatchGuard reputation server. The WatchGuard server responds with a reputation score for that URL. Based on the reputation score, and on locally configured thresholds, RED determines whether the Firebox should drop the traffic, allow the traffic and scan it locally, or allow the traffic without a local scan. This increases performance, because Gateway AntiVirus does not need to scan URLs with a known good or bad reputation.
