We have 10 offices throughout Brazil, and can now they are all connected by using the VPN feature of the firewall.

Room for Improvement

  • Link load balance
  • Application control
  • Smart filter

Stability Issues

No issues encountered.

No issues encountered.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Levels two and three of tech support is very good.

Previous Solutions

The client had a Linux-based firewall, and they switched as it is not a corporate firewall designed for big companies.

Initial Setup

The implementation is not difficult, because all firewalls have the same logic, and if you have experience with firewalls, it is very simple.

Implementation Team

We implemented it in-house.

Other Solutions Considered

Yes we did, and we chose MFE because it is a good tool for securing networks.

Other Advice

Pay attention and write a security policy to ensure you have the correct rules in the new firewall.
