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

Pros
The simplicity of the solution is its most valuable asset. It's very user-friendly.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 central security management center and the content management center are very good.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.One of the most valuable features is having the ability to cluster multiple firewalls even if they are different versions.

Cons
The solution's support could use improvement.The optimization is not really ready. If you want very good optimization, you have to add it to the network.This solution would be improved with the inclusion of custom reporting.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.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.

The reports need to be improved. We need to have them customized but they don't have that right now. I would like for them to have better system predictions. We don't have that right now. My system may be working fine right now but after making some changes, that can change.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.The big advantage of this solution is that we can select the right model for our requirements, which is not too expensive.

It's a little bit on the high side compared to the other products.
