What is most valuable?

* Very good Web user interface * Reports about internal machines needing security fixes * Simple clustering

How has it helped my organization?

Tells me which internal machines could have security issues by passively monitoring traffic and spotting un-patched systems.

What needs improvement?

Being more cost effective. I went with a pair of Watchguard M300 recently when buying a new firewall cluster for our own use because it was way cheaper than NetASQ/Stormshield N700 while being faster, and it offers true multi-master… more»

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

Lower prices for the entry level boxes. Competition is not bad at lower prices.

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

What is most valuable?

Netasq Seismo is valuable.

What needs improvement?

* Management interface (GUI) * IPS engine * Log management

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

Fortinet, Dell SonicWall and Check Point because these products offer a wide range of features that are not available with Netasq.

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.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No, which was a big mistake but the management decided at that time to go with Netasq since there was no existing distributor in Middle East region.

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.

No issues encountered.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues encountered.
