What is most valuable?

The user interface makes it easy to configure and use.

The troubleshooting tool is helpful.

Technical support is fast and they have been good at resolving our problems.

What needs improvement?

This solution needs to including machine learning and AI functionality to assist with intrusion prevention. In Indonesia, there are a lot of false positives. For example, many websites from our government and local industries are blocked by the IPS.

More advanced security features could be added.

I would like to be able to fully customize the reports.

I deploy this solution for our clients and one person is enough for the job.
