Cons
"In terms of improvement, the pricing and documentation need improvement. We have had problems getting the documents.""I did not go with it because their APM module is a different product altogether. It's a common thing that companies do. They sell something and then they add on top of it as a different product. It is a type of marketing strategy. But when it comes to the overall management, it takes a lot of time to really look into it."

"The initial setup is complex but it is manageable.""It's hard to scale down the solution. You need to buy another product in order to do this.""It's unfortunate that the network firewall isn't really a next generation firewall.""The pricing for this solution should be reduced so that it can be more competitive."
