What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is the Stormshield Analyzer, which allows us to collect and analyze data, then generate reports.

Our organization's main concern is stability, and this is a stable solution. It's more stable than the other firewall that was deployed.

What is most valuable?

The features I find most valuable is the backup inspection, the filtering, and the load balancing. I am also impressed by the antivirus feature that gives us two controls over the viruses - one is from the parameter and one on the endpoint.

What needs improvement?

Since I have only been using this solution for a month, I haven't noticed anything yet that needs to improve. So far I can only say that the pricing could be better. But it is a trusted company belonging to Airbus, so it has a good… more»

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

We used Gateprotect and FortiGate Fortinet but we switched to Stormshield when we decided to upgrade.

What other advice do I have?

I will definitely recommend this solution to others. It is a good firewall and it has a good reputation. We do not have many choices but for the time-being this is one of the most successful deployed firewalls in Sudan. My rating for this… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at other options too, but we found that Stormshield was booming so we got it instead. We decided to get Stormshield instead of upgrading the solution we were using at the time.

What is most valuable?

I like that the solution can be managed in a variety of environments, and that it provides us with a shield.

What needs improvement?

Many products are in front of the firewall and anybody can pick them up and the firewall will crash. It requires protection of the software and the SD card to avoid that kind of damage. I don't feel the SD card is particularly secure.

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

Licensing cost depends on the features that you need. VPN is included in the license, for example, but if you want to buy antivirus or anti spam, there is an additional cost.

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

There are numerous differences in the various solutions. I feel we have more options with the Stormshield firewall and new features that we haven't previously had. Cisco, for example, doesn't have the features that Stormshield has.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution an eight out of 10.

What is most valuable?

All of the features are valuable.

How has it helped my organization?

The solution has improved my organization because I can see what traffic is happening and I can use it to block and prevent attacks.

What needs improvement?

The pricing could be improved. For me, in terms of the solution, what they currently have is enough. A more user-friendly interface would be helpful.

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

We license on a yearly basis. It's expensive. At the moment, there aren't any costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.

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

We did not previously use another solution.

What other advice do I have?

The product is continuously being used every day. I use quite an old interface for this, and I don't know what the current version is like. I would rate this solution a 7… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I'm still evaluating, but I have looked at pfSense and Check Point software.

Everything with Stormshield Network Security is valuable.

This product has improved the way our organization functions. I can see what traffic is going on. I can easily block any programs from attacks.

What needs improvement?

The main area of this product that has room for improvement is pricing. Stormshield Network Security is quite expensive. For me, what they currently have with features is… more»

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

Our license for Stormshield Network Security is on an annual basis. It should be less expensive.

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

Stormshield Network Security was the first firewall that we implemented.

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to ten, I would rate this product a seven because from time to time there are some little issues. You don't know what is going on.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We were choosing between pfSense and Check Point.

What is most valuable?

The performance of this solution is good. This solution is quick and easy to configure. The Web GUI is easy to use. It is clear and I have had no problems with it. Stormshield is easy for administrators to use.

What needs improvement?

The technical support for this solution needs to be improved. This is not a next-generation firewall. The VPN portal needs to be improved, although it functions. This solution does not have support for a sandbox.

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

The price of this solution and the price of support are ok. They are not expensive. Support is paid on a yearly basis. Purchasing additional options is expensive.

What other advice do I have?

This is a solution that is stable and not expensive, but it is not a next-generation firewall. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
