System Administrator at ISET
The other option we considered was Kerio. I tried to contact their office in Russia, but it is in the UK. I wanted to communicate with them because we cannot buy things without a warranty. We considered buying Kerio products with the warranty, but they said we needed to send the device to them to repair it. This meant it would take too much time to replace it. In Georgia, we need a local distributor, i.e. a local representative here who we can work with, so that's the problem. View full review »

Nine or ten years ago, there were few options at the time. Currently, we are using Barracuda for our more general Internet access. We use Cisco for our more protected environment. View full review »

Pete Nixon
Senior Network Security Engineer at a university
It's great buying the latest and greatest equipment, but no so great if your engineers don't know how to operate it! From experience, hardware purchasing is normally dependent on the technical expertise of engineers, so if all your engineers are Cisco trained, it makes no sense to buy another vendor firewall.

Sedef Koker
IT Manager at a manufacturing company
I evaluated Sophos UTM, Checkpoint, Cisco and PA. PA is the best fit for my company because Sophos acquired Cyberoam and their software wasn’t successful for domain user restrictions. Checkpoint was very slow for me and too many licences and it was complicated. Cisco acquired Sourcefire and they need to improve next-gen features. So I chose PA. View full review »
