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

Pros
The filtering of the solution is very good. You can do URL filtering and, while you need a custom URL to filter under other solutions like Symantec, here the solution covers most categories and the database.All of the filtering features are very nice.The feature I find most valuable is the web, email and DLP integration.

Troubleshooting is very simple because you can see where the email was not delivered and why it would be considered as spam.I think the spamming feature is very valuable.The most valuable feature of this solution is the spam filter.Technical support is great. They are able to look at their patches and offer quick responses. We even have an account manager in the Middle East. They are very good.Technical support is great.

Cons
We've fixed a couple of issues on the solution so far. It doesn't work perfectly all the time.The reporting functionality needs to be improved, as it is not customizable.I would like to see some improvement like cloud application and integration capabilities and the classification part is missing from the DLP.

An additional feature that could be added is a pop-up screen notifying you that an email has been blocked, without having to double click on it to take you there it could provide you with a summary explaining why it was on hold or why was it spam when you hover over it with your cursor.Online support sometimes takes up to a week to get back to you.The only drawback to this solution is that the firmware is frequently updated, and each update results in downtime.There are features that other solutions have that this one is lacking, such as reporting options. I hope in future releases they advance their features list.It would be nice if we could manage the solution from the cloud so I could handle things off-site if necessary.Limited ability to upgrade hardware may lead to some performance issues that might otherwise be improved.The product could incorporate even more artificial intelligence to enhance the functionality, but it is a competetive and intelligent product as it.The biggest room for improvement would be the deployment. It will be hard for someone who doesn't understand the interface to deploy. If you understand it, you can find your way around the problems.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Licensing is a yearly subscription that is based on the number of users.

If you don't need the full bundle that includes everything, you have options for the small or medium enterprise environments.This is a good solution and value for the money.In the future I would like it if there's a possibility to lower the price of the bandwidth and UTM. It is quite expensive.Pricing is based on initial license purchase and use volume.Pricing is straight-forward and renewable without complicated pricing structures.The annual cost is $55,000.It is an expensive product.The licensing model for this solution is better because it is based on the box and not the number of users.
