Stormshield Network Security Review

Good performance and an easy-to-use GUI, but it needs a sandbox and the technical support needs improvement

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution for the security of our local network.

What is most valuable?

The performance of this solution is good.

This solution is quick and easy to configure.

The Web GUI is easy to use. It is clear and I have had no problems with it.

Stormshield is easy for administrators to use.

What needs improvement?

The technical support for this solution needs to be improved.

This is not a next-generation firewall.

The VPN portal needs to be improved, although it functions.

This solution does not have support for a sandbox.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for seven years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We used to have more bugs and crashes, and trouble with the Anti-Spam feature, but the solution is now ok.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have between one hundred and one hundred and fifty users.

The users' devices include Wi-Fi, phones, and computers. We also have five servers on the network. All of our users are end-users.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support for this solution in Poland is not good.

I have been in touch with them by phone and by email. Their response time is not quick.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup of this solution is easy. The configuration is quick and easy.

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

The price of this solution and the price of support are ok. They are not expensive. Support is paid on a yearly basis.

Purchasing additional options is expensive.

What other advice do I have?

This is a solution that is stable and not expensive, but it is not a next-generation firewall. 

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
