We use it for all next-gen firewall features such as ACLS, application monitoring, security, virtual networking, etc.

What is most valuable?

The feature that I have found the most useful is that it meets all our requirements technically.

It is scalable. It has handled the network very well with our growth in the last five years. 

How are customer service and technical support?

I haven't directly contacted them, but based on what I have heard from our network team, they are pretty quick at getting back to us. 

How was the initial setup?

It was complex. We used a lot of professional service hours. 

What about the implementation team?

We had an in-house team as well as a consultant. 

What other advice do I have?

I would definitely recommend this solution. It comes under the top industry leaders and is comparable to other top products in this category.
