"The overall menu is not very user-friendly and it could be easier.""This is an expensive solution and I think that the price could be improved.""The product itself is very good, but Dell needs to work on product visibility in their advertising.""The solution could integrate better with other platforms.""The timed synchronization between the network appliance needs improvement.""User interface could be improved.""The problem is that when combined with what the client already has, there are two different logins and two different management systems, and these should be consolidated into a single interface.""It's difficult to upgrade, you have to get it serviced at the OEM directly."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"The cost of the licensing is based on the maximum number of concurrent users, and it costs a lot to add them.""I don't know about the pricing of the SSL-VPN box. I know the SSL-VPN software is free. Global VPN client, by comparison, is licensed for around $150 or something like that. But the SSL-VPN software is free. It is already built-in with the box.""Our licenses are stackable and can be anywhere from five users to a million users."
