Untangle NG Firewall Review

Power IPS and other features, simple to set up and maintain


What is our primary use case?

We are using this product internally, for intrusion prevention.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are IPS, MAPI, NAT, and VPN. These features are simply awesome.

This product has some unique features that are very good.

What needs improvement?

The pricing should be reduced because it is expensive.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Untangle for about one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Untangle is quite a stable product.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We use the software-based version, which is scalable. I am not sure about the hardware-based version so I cannot comment on it.

We have about 100 users.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have not had a problem for the past couple of years so we have not been in contact with technical support.

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

We are also using FortiGate and Check Point.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is very simple. Any layperson can set it up within an hour.

You can configure it and forget it.

What about the implementation team?

One person part-time is more than enough for maintenance.

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

This is an expensive product.

What other advice do I have?

This is a product that I can recommend and if anybody implements it and wants support, we would be open to providing technical support for it. This is something that we would be happy to do.

In summary, this is a good product and my only real complaint is about the pricing.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
