Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"We were able to see what devices are talking to each other, giving us more visibility.""It has helped us tighten our security posture. Now, staff can only access things that they should be accessing.""The most valuable feature is the automatic scaling. With its microservices, it scales both up and down, depending on traffic and throughput.""The UI was also one of the huge selling points. My web development manager was blown away with the detail and the granularity that you can get out of the UI. It is a very strong and informative UI, with the amount of data it provides."

"I'm more inclined towards the conventional firewall. So for me, I'm more geared towards the standard firewall type functionalities as well as the web application firewall because that seems to work fine.""The most valuable feature is the IPSec forwarding.""Having a firewall solution with a data quota is very important when the bandwidth is limited, which really distinguishes it from other products.""The product, itself, doesn't seem to have any bugs or glitches.""The interface is user-friendly.""It has been working fine. You just turn it on, and it works.""The user interface is well laid out and understandable.""The initial setup was straightforward."

Cons
"I would like better reports and in-depth reporting.""We are having some issues with their LDAP and integrating it with the Active Directory. We can't seem to set it up.""There should be a bit more customer care, with regular review meetings on it or regular reports. It would be nice to have a quarterly or biannual review of what ShieldX has blocked."

"I would say there's room for improvement in terms of the GUI. Because it is better than some of the other standard firewalls. They have the drag and drop features.""The VPN needs to be improved.""When it comes to web filtering and application filtering, it does not contain enough signatures to determine all of the sites that need to be blocked.""Cyberoam UTM needs to have more certifications with third-parties, such as NSS Labs.""We have had some issues with technical support, which is an area that needs improvement.""It should have a better VPN client. We decided to find something different than Cyberoam because of the VPN client software. It would be nice to have a user interface not only in English but also in different languages.""Sometimes, users are timed out intermittently.""Technical support could be faster."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"For other security professions who are looking for something which is low in cost that does microsegmentation, they should look at ShieldX. It might not be the big name out there, but it does everything that you are looking for in microsegmentation at a very low price.""For a three-year deal we paid £55,000 plus tax... But, and this is a big "but," this was over two years ago. ShieldX had only just hit the market. We were the first company in Europe to buy ShieldX."

"This is a cost-effective solution compared to other vendors, such as Cisco.""There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.""It is not cheap.""We paid for a two-year FullGuard license that includes support.""It's not an expensive product.""I am not happy with the pricing, it could be better.""I had an issue when I was trying to stop a user from using too much bandwidth while I was using Azure, I was not able to stop them.""We pay for licensing the solution. It's my understanding that it is not overly expensive. It may be somewhere around $2,000 for a license."

Top Answer: The performance has been good overall.
Top Answer: The solution wasn't overly expensive. If you are covering your company from security risk, it's often worth the cost. Security solutions aren't something you want to cheap out on.
Top Answer: The product is at its end-of-life. There is nothing to improve as it will be discontinued. With technology such a Sophos, Palo Alto, and Fortinet there has always been a lot of online documentation… more »
