Previous Solutions

McAfee came from Sidewinder, and Sidewinder didn't have much issues in terms of cluster.

Initial Setup

It's straightforward, no different than other technology.

Implementation Team

We did it in-house.

Other Solutions Considered

We also looked at an option from CheckPoint.

Other Advice

HA should be more stable, as most customers are concerned with HA failover - how fast and how stable it is.
