Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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 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."

"The issue right now is probably that Zscaler is not providing web browser isolation. Another solution, Menlo, offers this. For one customer, we had to send traffic to Menlo to do the isolation for us. It was requested by the customer so that they could integrate any iframe. Zscaler needs to add this type of feature in their next release.""Because it's on cloud, it doesn't allow application of extra settings.""Data Leak Prevention is only for web filtering and there is no protection for email.""The product could improve its integration with some legacy systems."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."
