Cons
The manageability of the web-based UI needs to be improved.The solution needs to improve its security firewalls and mirror that of, for example, Sophos, or FortiGate.The solution's website isn't that good. When I go to it, I can't find what I'm looking for. However, if I go to a third party's website, I can easily find the information.The biggest thing that needs improvement is the support.I would like to see a cluster feature added, where multiple devices can be configured and managed as one. One is in a standby state while the other is active, and if one fails then the other takes over.In the Israeli market, we are in need of Hebrew support.The user interface allows you to do a lot of things, but it is not user-friendly.They could improve their product if they set, for instance, a controller for wireless LAN. That would allow them to really have something more than an access point.

The VPN technology in Ubiquiti products is really difficult for beginners who do not have the right skills.It's difficult to manage the WiFi on the edge switches in the same console.Some of the features needed to set up the solution are too complex. There's a lot of technical information that is required.The technical support for this solution could be improved.We've had issues with the power supply. I've had to change the power supply twice. I'm not sure what the issue is. We're still trying to work out why we're having problems with the switches and the cutting of the power supply. The solution should look into this to see if there is something wrong with the product.
