What is most valuable?

I think the most important feature is the solution's user-friendliness. It's very easy to manage and its database is amazing. It has all the features you need. When we installed the solution, we had a… more »

How has it helped my organization?

I try to convert the benefit into a dollar value so that I can tell my clients or my management that I'm saving money. So, since we have zero issues, no malware activity, and no viruses, I have peace… more »

What needs improvement?

We're still evaluating the program, so there is no guarantee that we will always get this kind of protection. They need to improve their research team and they need to study their data to analyze it… more »

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

It costs about 8 to 10 thousand dollars per year for 500 users, standard licensing fees included.

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

We used a normal firewall and antivirus solution - a combination of a hybrid system.

What other advice do I have?

Sangfor NGAF is a good product. People should try it, especially those who are not using the software. These firewalls are great and everything is becoming properly defined, even the network, the… more »

What is most valuable?

Almost all vendors in this category have the same features, but the big advantage in Sangfor is that it's very easy to use. The graphical user interface is so easy that a child could configure it. The other nice thing about Sangfor is the price tag. Almost every customer is pleasantly surprised by the low cost. When you compare it with the networking and firewall leaders like Cisco, it's very good… more »

What needs improvement?

These days there are lots of breaches and vulnerabilities which you can see if you do some research. Sangfor has similar issues with one or two products where customers have had problems. The company deaks with these things immediately and quickly brings out new firmware to solve the issue so I'm not aware of any deficiency in the solution. If a customer finds a feature lacking, we open a ticket… more »

What other advice do I have?

It's important to note that the performance of the solution depends on the initial pre-working and sizing. The sizing is handled by the company and they know their product, so they normally size it very well. They also put in provision for future growth so there's never an issue of performance. There's no such thing as 100% so I would rate this solution a nine out of 10.

The firewall is connected to the directory. It offers domain authentication if you want to connect to the internet. It helps our users' website connect to our internet service. 

What is most valuable?

In terms of the most valuable features, the IPS report is quick and updated. Performance is also valuable. 

What needs improvement?

In terms of improvement, it should have integrated consoles. Since we have various products and we need one console that we can use to manage all of the solutions. Sangfor should provide it.  It could also be cheaper. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward. It's easy to use. The user interface isn't user-friendly though. 

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