Cons
"The price is okay. This said, the solution is certainly expensive in comparison with other cloud services.""We could do only one-way NAT-ing, where the traffic comes from outside to internal, to Azure, which is fine. However, when we actually do NAT-ed traffic to hit the firewall, that way is not working.""There should be a simple one-click deployment for a firewall, rather than a set of setup instructions that include steps such as the DNS configuration, et cetera."

"The solution needs to add more automation and orchestration capabilities. Those features would make the solution much stronger.""The solution was quite technical. It would be easier to manage if the solution was more specific about aspects of the solution and provided more advisory around how to use it effectively. It would help users a lot if they were more clear about everything.""The most recent update was not tested with all of the vendors before it was released, so some of the features are misbehaving.""The Network Assurance, which helps to create the network model, is not so rich.""The support could be improved.""The initial setup with Skybox Security is hard. You need one or two strong security engineers on your team.""The price is costly, and I hope they can reduce the cost.""The price could be cheaper."
