Sangfor NGAF Review

Priced well with good end-user security features, but the web interface should be more user-friendly


What is our primary use case?

We primarily use this product as an intrusion prevention system.

How has it helped my organization?

Sangfor has the best capabilities for securing connections, securing web browsers, securing servers, and general threat protection.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable part of this product is the set of end-user security features.

What needs improvement?

The web interface needs to be improved, making it more user-friendly.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working Sangfor for the last 20 years. I have only recently installed the NGAF, so I am still learning about it.

How was the initial setup?

The initial set was easy.

What about the implementation team?

I installed it myself.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Sangfor is cheaper than competing vendors.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I evaluated several other options and found that Palo Alto and Sangfor were the best two. Ultimately, I chose Sangfor.

Price-wise, Sangfor was cheaper than the others and Palo Alto was more expensive than Fortinet.

What other advice do I have?

My advice is that if you have a large enough budget then implement Palo Alto. Alternatively, with a lesser budget, I recommend using Sangfor.

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
