Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The features I have found the most useful are the web filter, the captive portal, the SSL inspector, and the ad-blocker. They're awesome.""Web filtering is very reliable.""The interface is very good.""The Untangle firewall is a software firewall, so it runs on generic hardware. We found that was probably the best feature, and it's why we chose it when we started using it three years ago.""The most valuable features are IPS, MAPI, NAT, and VPN.""Easy to set up and easy to integrate."
