We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
It's a great solution for management. We can manage a lot at the same time with one security management system. Also, each gateway depends on the other, which is helpful.The firewall's blades are the solution's most valuable feature.Key features include the ability to include logs for everything that you do for admin. Also, it has web filtering built in and VPN.URL filtering is a very important feature.

The root cause analysis feature is very valuable.What I like is that you can have different storage locations for different applications.The most valuable feature is server virtualization. It's been very useful.We use the on-premises version of this solution for log analysis and to find details about certain issues.The trace log is the solution's most valuable feature. It's very helpful in troubleshooting problems.We are using it because we have a VMware product. It has its own built in dashboards for VMware products, and that's a good thing.

Cons
In the last version from 80.20, there are some issues around SSNA Diction. I would like this to be improved.We sometimes have trouble with the performance of the solution. Maybe some performance tuning options could be added in a future release. There should be more visibility about which blade in your firewall is causing the latency.I would like the ability to have an overview, cross-site: One portal that does all firewalls. Also, the user interface is overly complicated.The usability of the solution could be improved.

I don't use the solution on a day to day basis, so I'm not sure what specifically can be improved.I think that it should be able to integrate with other third-party backup and recovery solutions, more that it does now.The solution isn't user-friendly for admins.Documentation is lacking, including some guide as to how to use the expressions. It is not clear how to look for a log, for example. Some examples in the documentation might be helpful. I think that VMware had good documentation, but it's no longer hosted. The documentation is not as easy to understand as it was before.They should improve their web interface to make it more user-friendly.The solution is a very good tool, but it has a lot of limitations. One of the main issues is around how you define your retention policy, for instance, in Log Insight. It doesn't have it. You can't define a log retention policy. You also can't define the destination or location for your logs. All of the logs are in one index or one bucket.

Pricing could always be lower. If it were free, I would be more satisfied.
