Huawei NGFW Review

Excellent technical support and reliable, but priced high


What is our primary use case?

We were using the solution for everything in our network, such as content filtering, IDS, and IPS. However, because of license issues, we had to stop using the solution.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for approximately three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is good. We had an issue once but there was a patch available we did not know about that fixed the issue.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable but it is difficult because you need to purchase new systems, it is not just one click.

How are customer service and technical support?

The support for the solution has been excellent. If we ever had an issue they would send an engineer to help us with our problem.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price of the license of this solution is high.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have evaluated pfSense.

What other advice do I have?

I would advise others that want to implement this solution that the cost is high for licenses and if you want to scale the solution you will have additional hardware costs.

We have recently switched to pfSense because of licensing issues.

I rate Huawei NGFW a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
