McAfee StoneGate Review

It's not so complicated to set up but the hard drive has some issues.

Valuable Features

  • High availability is very consistent
  • Good firewalling
  • Stability

Improvements to My Organization

Before the installation of the firewall, the network was divided into less zones and the administration was more difficult to manage.

Room for Improvement

The hardware needs improving as we had a lot of problems with the hard drive reliability, both with the firewall and the intrusion protection system.

Use of Solution

I've used it for three years.

Deployment Issues

None in particular.

Stability Issues

Nothing except for a few hard drive fails.

Scalability Issues

We did need to scale.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

8/10 when they needed to help us.

Technical Support:


Previous Solutions

Previously the solution was Netasq. The new architecture and the product was chosen by the customer.

Initial Setup

Not so complicated. You just need to understand the solution with an external management console instead of an HTTP one.

Implementation Team

We implemented it in-house with the support of the internal IT team.

Other Solutions Considered

Palo Alto but it was more expensive.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: We are a reseller.
