What needs improvement?

I would say that the whole Web Security Gateway can be better. I feel that it controls the endpoint. But I am not sure if any improvement is necessary on the actual Web Security Gateway installed, which is meant to be beneficial, because maybe the problem lies at our endpoint.

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to 10, I would give it a five. I'm not convinced that it's necessarily the best solution going forward in the future. The technical support could be better, and the initial setup and deployment could be more straightforward.

What is most valuable?

The performance is ok and overall, I'm really pleased. The interface is user-friendly. There are a lot of features in this product.

What needs improvement?

The dashboard is dependent on Java so you need to have it installed. If there are different versions of Java then it can cause problems. It would be an improvement if the management dashboards were not reliant upon Java.

What other advice do I have?

This product is doing what it should and what we are expecting from it. This solution is perfect for what we are using it for. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.
