The scalability is very good.

How are customer service and technical support?

Dealing with the support team in Israel can be a struggle because of the difference in working hours, holidays, and priorities.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I would with firewall solutions from several vendors including Palo Alto, Fortinet, and Meraki.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing this solution is to ensure that they have good support from local experts. The biggest lesson that I have learned from using this product has to do with the capabilities of the smallest models.
