Secure connectivity and active directory integration simplifies remote working

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case for this solution is general remote working and VPN setup. We're not using the VPN tunnels for any service, so it is just purely and utterly for remote working.

Pros and Cons

  • "Working with the Hillstone E-Series has, from a remote perspective, allowed me to give my clients a secure connectivity."
  • "I am not sure if this solution offers active directory integration. Adding that feature will definitely be an advantage."

What other advice do I have?

Adding better integration to this solution will be beneficial. I will rate this solution a seven or eight out of ten.

A solution with a straightforward implementation, excellent technical support and good scalability

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution as a firewall to protect the local network.

Pros and Cons

  • "The initial setup was straightforward. It only took a few hours to deploy."
  • "The solution doesn't have a web proxy built into the system like Sophos. This is something they should work to change."

What other advice do I have?

We use the E-2000, 3000 and 5000 series versions of the solution. We use the public cloud deployment model. If an organization is not looking for a web proxy, it's a very, very good product. It's stable. It's simple, and the support is great. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.
