More Cradlepoint NetCloud Pros »

"One of the most valuable features is having the ability to cluster multiple firewalls even if they are different versions.""The most valuable feature is controlling the traffic and the logging. They have real-time logins for traffic logs. Troubleshooting was very easy for me.""The central security management center and the content management center are very good.""When our customer needs some optimization, along with performance and security. If they want everything in one package, I recommend Forcepoint because they have everything.""The simplicity of the solution is its most valuable asset. It's very user-friendly.""The support is great. They also have very good categorization. It's very good. It captures a lot of threats.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the support.""The most valuable feature is SD-WAN."

Cons
"In our situation, the initial setup was complex."

More Cradlepoint NetCloud Cons »

"It's a complicated firewall. Until you come to know the firewall inducers, most people don't like the firewall because the components for the firewall are a little bit complex. User-friendliness is a little bit tough. It needs to be user-friendly when creating policies, and pushing policies. Committing takes more time compared to Palo Alto.""They should have a GUI on the product itself, not a separate management tool to be used on the management server or on a server to be used to manage the file. It should be all in one device. The device should be controlled through its own GUI. They also have to improve the learning center and the documents as the documents don't really help.""This solution would be improved with the inclusion of custom reporting.""The optimization is not really ready. If you want very good optimization, you have to add it to the network.""The solution's support could use improvement.""Making this solution easier to use would be an improvement.""Forcepoint would be improved if there were more training available.""They should have a local vendor who can provide support. Most of the support is overseas, so the time zones can be a problem."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Cradlepoint's prices are on par with similar solutions."

More Cradlepoint NetCloud Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The big advantage of this solution is that we can select the right model for our requirements, which is not too expensive.""I believe the licensing fee is for one year, three years, and five years, or something like that. If you wants to increase the support level from a simpler level to platinum, I think that there's a cost. There are differences between every kind of support, but I don't know the numbers.""We would love to take other solution from Forcepoint, but unfortunately the price is too high. That's why we are not considering using Forcepoing for our proxy and DLB. They have a very good DLB, but the matter in the end is the cost.""Forcepoint is very expensive but it's really secure.""It is expensive.""The training that they offer to their end-customers. It's quite expensive, I believe it costs roughly $11,000""Everything in Forcepoint comes with an individual license, which is kind of a problem. In our last meeting, they said that it may change at the beginning of 2021, and they will try to merge some licenses together. Customers will get more features than what they got previously. We will wait and see.""We have found the price could be reduced. It is a little expensive."

Questions from the Community

Top Answer: Cradlepoint has a Trend Micro interface. They run Trend Micro, kind of like firewall — web filtering on top of it. There could be some room for improvement there, but that's kind of reaching.
Top Answer: I like the IPS. IPS is the master feature. I depend on the firewall and sandbox.
Top Answer: We have just a subscription for the cloud, and this license is great. The license is so good.
Top Answer: Management could be better. They can improve the management. I think all our customers can't accept firewalls that have standalone management. So, they prefer Fortinet or Palo Alto. But overall… more »
