Room for Improvement

I'm no expert on this subject, and the OS performs all that is required.

Use of Solution

I've used it for over one year.

Deployment Issues

No issues encountered.

Stability Issues

We've only had to do one reboot in six months.

Scalability Issues

None as yet, because the solution hasn't reached capacity yet.

Customer Service and Technical Support

I'm yet to use the official tech support as the community provides all that I have required.

Previous Solutions

  • Sonicwall
  • Cisco ASA

We switched due to licensing costs and scalability.

Initial Setup

It's relatively simple and straightforward, with enough documentation avalable online for the average user to install and setup.
