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

Pros
"We also like the Change Control. We can control how things get executed. It has signatures for different kinds of protocols.""This is a basic solution; the policy screen is okay, and it's easy to configure."

"Content filtering is really easy to use. We have rules for content filtering. One of the rules that we have is that if it is not an SSL site, it should block the site. It scans, and if it finds a bad site, it is not going to allow it. We can also block based on what the company wants us to block. If the company wants us to block porn, we'll block porn. If the company wants to block social media, we're going to block social media."

Cons
"The intrusion detection features should also be improved. It is a very good feature but it should be maximized.""I would like to see better reporting and alerting features in the future."

"The only thing that they need to improve is that they drop sessions. Currently, if you see a session come in, such as a DHCP session or a VPN session, you don't have the ability to click on that session, hit drop, and have them re-negotiate. It would be a really nice feature, and they are working on it. This is the only feature that is missing."
