The scalability is very good. They have a clustering mechanism, so you can start with an appliance and then cluster, adding more bandwidth and nodes into your cluster. If you don't have a big budget you can start with a medium appliance and then cluster appliances. Or if you want to buy it all in one shot, there is a big range. Although it allows scaling by adding multiple firewalls together (clustering), we have never used that, as all new hardware supports high-performance throughput and connections at a reasonable price.

When we implement a firewall we need to be aware of whether it is growing over a short time period or a long time period. I think the scalability, from our implementation, is good because you can use the same configuration for another platform. If you implement on a small platform, it It is easy to implement the same configuration to another, bigger device. View full review »
