Enables us to know which end users are using which features and the kind of traffic coming through

What is our primary use case?

I'm a pre-sales engineer, working at Egypt's largest university. I have experience with firewalls such as FortiManager from Fortinet, Sophos XG and NG, Cisco ASA and Palo Alto Firewall.

Pros and Cons

  • "I can know which end users are using which features."
  • "I'd like to have access to more information on the traffic passing through."

What other advice do I have?

We have 1,000 end users who are using Extreme. We have a license for up to 100 devices. There are licenses for higher numbers but that's what we have. The product is in regular use and it's not expensive. It has good compatibility features, it's cheaper than Cisco Manager but comparable in price to other software solutions. I can use it with other vendors whereas Cisco doesn't allow that. I would rate this product an eight out of 10. No software can get a ten out of ten, there's always room for improvement.
