Stormshield Network Security Review

An application firewall would be useful but groups can be created with IP services, subnets and network masks in one.


What is most valuable?

The firewalling as we can create object groups and apply a rule to this group. You can have IP services, subnets, and network masks in the same group.

How has it helped my organization?

Filters and URL filtering helped us to optimize our bandwidth.

What needs improvement?

An application firewall like other next generation firewalls have. We still haven't implemented Stormshield. I hope it'll be better for this part.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using it for eight years, and we're currently migrating onto StormShield.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

No issues encountered.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues encountered.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues encountered.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

9/10.

Technical Support:

9/10.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Eight years ago, we were using an old 3Com firewall.

How was the initial setup?

It was straightforward and it's done though a user-friendly console manager.

What about the implementation team?

We implemented it in-house.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

  • Checkpoint
  • Cisco
