We chose this solution in the first place because it has access to Layer 7. I can control the requests and the content, which I can access on my network if I want to even if it's forbidden access to other external resources. If I want to monitor, for example, traffic, and apply this rule on Layer 7, I can do so. This was our main goal when implementing this application. We wanted to take advantage of the Gateway capabilities.

Cons
The usability of the interface could be improved.I would like to see an improved capacity to store logs so that they will be available for a longer time.The solution could use more reports.I would like to see better controlling of the traffic.I would suggest that someone implementing this product is knowledgeable in the IT field, and with the network needs. It is complex.If you know nothing about networks, then you can't set it up.It is not stable nor mature.This product could easily progress to be among the industry leaders. I think they need to improve enterprise level automation. It integrates with a small number of vulnerability scanners, so report results should be imported manually; same for SIEM integration.
