It's an easy, straightforward management platform to use. Their support needs improvement, as they could not help us and everything stopped working.

What is our primary use case?

We have a couple of data centers, mainly in the Netherlands, plus some offices, which are different sizes across the world, along with warehouses. We are an eCommerce firm globally. For our data centers, we use clustered Stormshields, the SN910 Series. For our small locations and warehouses, we use the clustered SN510 Series. All the branch offices mainly use this as their firewall. On the data centers, it is more like an application or firewall with more functionality.

Pros and Cons

  • "It's an easy, straightforward management platform to use."
  • "The biggest issue was their support department was not able to help us, then everything stops. This is a no-go area for me."

What other advice do I have?

I don't have many positive things to say about this firewall because we keep bumping into issues. Now, we are looking to leave Stormshield. Search for a vendor based on a checklist. The checklist should consist of all functional features and benefits you're looking for. Talk to colleagues in the field who have knowledge in that specific specialty. Ask for references regarding their experiences. Go to websites to gain more knowledge on specific vendors and the performance and functionalities that they offer. See about the how the support and licensing are setup. Start rating the guidelines and…

Deploying the router mode is fine, but when deploying the bridge mode we had problems.

What other advice do I have?

I don’t recommend this product at all. Go with Fortinet, Juniper or Check Point unless you don’t have the required budget then Netasq or any other low grade UTM might be enough for you.

An application firewall would be useful but groups can be created with IP services, subnets and network masks in one.

What is most valuable?

The firewalling as we can create object groups and apply a rule to this group. You can have IP services, subnets, and network masks in the same group.

How has it helped my organization?

Filters and URL filtering helped us to optimize our bandwidth.

What needs improvement?

An application firewall like other next generation firewalls have. We still haven't implemented Stormshield. I hope it'll be better for this part.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using it for eight years, and we're currently migrating onto StormShield.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

No issues encountered.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues encountered.

What do I think about the scalability of the
