Pros
We now know a lot more detail about what our users are doing on the network.It is very stable. It is fairly easy to use.I have not actually called their support line, because we have a direct contact to a senior engineer in the company for any issues that we handle with them. I will say they are very responsive, and they do give you the information you need when you need it.​​Installing this product as a datacenter firewall for segregation and segmentation, and also configuring policies between zones has improved my organization.With this product, we receive the best monitoring and reports.​Detailed reporting on analysis of content. The inspections are easily applied to security policy profiles and profile groups, and may be assigned on a per-rule basis.

The cost of the product weighed against the potential impact of even one successful crypto malware-type exploit may justify the expense.
