What is a Targeted Response Time?
Targeted response times are not observed in the same way as a Service Level Agreement. It is always the goal of WatchGuard to resolve your issue quickly and efficiently. The WatchGuard Support teams are not always able to contact each customer within the Targeted Response Time, and this will vary based on our current case volume.
Can a WatchGuard Support representative make changes to my Panda product configuration?
WatchGuard Support is not permitted to make changes to a customer's product configuration. For troubleshooting purposes, a Support representative might ask your permission to make a specific change on your behalf.
Can a WatchGuard technician assist with a 3rd party or non-WatchGuard product?
WatchGuard Support representatives might make recommendations related to your network or third-party software. However, WatchGuard Support does not provide technical support assistance for non-WatchGuard products or network environment issues unrelated to the WatchGuard product.
Will WatchGuard Support walk me through setup?
WatchGuard Support provides troubleshooting support to all customers. If you have tried to set up your WatchGuard product using the available online documentation and it is not working as expected, then a technician will help to review your configuration to determine the root cause and resolve the issue.
When will WatchGuard escalate my case?
Cases will be escalated to a higher level support representative if necessary to solve the problem.
You can request escalation through the support case, or during a phone conversation with a representative. The decision to escalate is based on the technical issue and the best path to resolution. If you are not satisfied with the handling of your case, you can request a review by our management team to determine whether your needs would be met best by an escalation or transfer to a different representative.
What happens when a case is idle, or I am not getting a response?
Our WatchGuard Support on Panda products representatives will notify you when the status of your case changes. You can follow your case and ask questions online or by phone.
