What is most valuable?

The most valuable part of the product is the whole package. The features included in the Enterprise Immune System are complete and effective. Its detection engine is ridiculously good.

How has it helped my organization?

It helps us to reliably serve our customers with quick deployment of a durable, effective and intelligent product.

What needs improvement?

It is hard to really address what needs to be improved in the respect that it does everything I would expect of a superior solution. It is simple enough to use because the interface is quite simple, the setup is quick and painless — in only… more »

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

I think that the price is quite fair and very good for this type of product and the features that the product provides.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to people and organizations considering this as a solution is: go buy it. They shouldn't waste their time fussing and looking around at other solutions. It works. I've done administrating for several years, and this is the one… more »

What is most valuable?

I really like their general IT. I like how it's possible for me to block other countries immediately if I see the need to do so. The initial setup is a breeze.

What needs improvement?

The support the solution offers needs a lot of improvement. GFI took over the product and since the takeover, the support, the backups, the after-sales support, etc., has basically dropped off quite a bit. When it comes to dealing with updates, there are often bugs on the solution. They should do a… more »

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

I've previously come across Barracuda. I've spoken to the team there. In terms of meeting our needs, I've found that, with a lot of other products, it's very modular. Kerio tends to keep everything in-house. Due to that, there are certain functionalities that I prefer to have with Kerio as opposed… more »

What other advice do I have?

We're using the latest version of the solution. I would recommend the solution. It doesn't take too many people to set it up or maintain it, like, for example, Cisco, which is a bit more complex and difficult. I would rate the solution seven out of ten, and that's mostly due to the fact that their… more »

What is most valuable?

The product is quite mature. Cisco is well known within the industry. The solution's most valuable aspect is that it is extremely integrated. The product basically comes with the firewall features including IPS, URL filtering, malware, et… more »

What needs improvement?

The pricing of the solution can be improved. It's not cheap. It's quite expensive. The company needs to make its solution more affordable to make it more accessible to larger markets. Otherwise, it's seen as an enterprise-level solution… more »

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

The solution's costs are quite high. It's a turn-off in terms of actually using it. It's more of an enterprise-level solution. It's not ideal for smaller organizations as the cost to run it would be out of their budgeting capabilities.

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

I've used a variety of other solutions. I've used Check Point, Palo Alto, and Juniper as well. We primarily like Cisco due to the fact that their technical support is great. By far, it's the best I've ever seen.

What other advice do I have?

We use a few different Cisco solutions. We're a Cisco partner. We have a business relationship with the company. We're dealing with the latest version of this particular solution. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten. The value for money… more »

What is most valuable?

The solution offers a feature to show which traffic is the highest on the network, and which traffic is the lowest. There's also a feature that scans incoming and outgoing traffic, and one feature that is able to flag a suspicious IP… more »

How has it helped my organization?

There have been updates to the solution recently that have ramped up protection. Before this, we had a lot of hacks on the network, specifically in the cloud environment. After the proper implementation of that product, we've not had one… more »

What needs improvement?

The solution needs to improve Reverse DNS functionalities. Right now, when you check the IP address, it tells all. It assumes that that IP address is locally available on the inside. When the request is going back to me it's supposed to do… more »

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

We've previously used Cisco, Salesforce, and Fortinet. We last used Salesforce, and we mainly switched due to the cost of the solution.

What other advice do I have?

We use both the cloud and on-premises deployment models. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The solution's IPS functionality and firewall functionality are the solution's most valuable features.

What needs improvement?

The detection needs improvement. We fear that it doesn't detect everything that we want to see. The solution needs enhanced reporting. The reporting on Cisco Stealthwatch and Darktrace is much bigger. The visibility that they grant for the filtering capabilities over large infrastructures are far… more »

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

We weren't previously using a different product.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model. We're still in the process of evaluating options. We're doing a POC with Cisco and Darktrace and are moving away from Check Point. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten.
