As of now, it is from their cloud.We use different workarounds and find different solutions for it, depending on the client's needs. We shouldn't have to, we should just be able to use the product as it comes with Cyberoam, rather than having to revert to other products.The Traffic Discovery feature should allow administrators to disconnect unnecessary live connections.VPN configuration is not very swift.Maybe network traffic analysis for malware and malicious behavior.Smaller CR15 units don’t have a hard disc or built in IView software. These units could do with that feature.
