The solution doesn't seem to be very mature. Our networking team says they are experiencing a lot of issues in the firewalls and some routers. There are fewer use cases available on the net. Examples are available on the net for configuring some of their features. Our team has found that they have to refer to the documents and they need to do a lot of tweaking and experimenting with features. There have been some difficulties in getting some features enabled on the firewalls and routers. View full review »

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 interactive dashboard. That would make it easier than playing with configurations the way we have to now. It would be better if upgrading the solution was easier. The solution needs four-way deployments and dashboard confirmation. The product should be able to integrate with products like Ansible. View full review »

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

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 by the device itself. Adding Intrusion Detection (IDS) and Intrusion Prevention (IPS) systems would improve the product. This may exist in the enterprise-grade firewall, but on the mid-level firewall, the functionality is lacking. I would like to see anti-phishing features included. Better reporting generation would be useful. View full review »
