What is most valuable?

We are still really just using the third party NIB and IDS for monitoring. As for the integrated platform, we haven't upgraded the new one. We've just been playing Huawei initially. Only now are we doing the Huawei firewall call integration… more »

What needs improvement?

The support could be improved. As we've gone along, we've realized the support is not effective due to the contracts we have. They need to offer more support upfront, no matter what contract you have. The solution requires a more… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is okay, however, support comes as a separate contract, and, if it expires, it can cause issues like what we are facing right now, where you need support and you don't have a contract in place and therefore can't get the help… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I'm also experienced with pfSense, Barracuda, and more of Cisco enterprise firewalls, as well as ASA. I believe that, although Huawei seems to hold its own against most other products, there are features of Cisco Firepower in particular… more »

What other advice do I have?

I haven't worked too closely with the solution, so I don't understand its full capacity. We have an entire Huawei architecture center. We do have equipment on the firewall side, run by Huawei, however, we haven't upgraded so far, we're just… more »

What is most valuable?

I had no difficulty using the Huawei NGFW. It is easier to use than some similar solutions by other vendors.

What needs improvement?

The firewall needs to be more configurable. I would like to see an antivirus solution included with the product.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Licensing fees are billed on an annual basis.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have also worked with a similar solution from Sophos and the Huawei NGFW is better. One advantage that Sophos has is that there is antivirus functionality included.

What other advice do I have?

Overall, this is a very good firewall. They provide good support and I recommend it. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The dashboard is user-friendly and very easy to use. The mapping features and traffic logging are good.

What needs improvement?

The dashboard is a little bit slow and they can improve performance on things like configuring policies. Wildfire analysis would be useful features to include in the future. This features help Network Administrator to have a detail visibility in the threats coming from the traffic which is analysed… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I also have experience with similar solutions by Cisco.

What other advice do I have?

My recommendation for anybody who is researching this solution is to start with a proof of concept. We no longer use Huawei as our firewall. The number one vendor in the market is Fortinet, then there is Palo Alto, and finally Checkpoint. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

What is Huawei NGFW?

In addition to all the functions of conventional firewalls, Huawei NGFW also provides more advanced security functions, such as IPS and anti-malware functions, to identify applications and prevent application-layer threats. Huawei NGFW provides a global context awareness architecture for granular controls based on application, content, time, user, attack, and location (ACTUAL). The innovative SmartPolicy technology and management interfaces that can be easily integrated simplify the O&M management. The Intelligence Awareness Engine (IAE) uses an integrated architecture to perfectly balance security and performance. Huawei NGFW provides next-generation security featuring comprehensive protection, granular control, and OM simplicity to meet the requirements of enterprise networks on access control, scope of protection, usability, and performance in the new ICT landscape.
