What advice do you have for others considering Huawei NGFW?


If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Huawei NGFW, what would you say?

How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?

We're just customers. We're using the latest version of the solution. We haven't been too satisfied with the solution and so we have decided to move from it to Sophos. I wouldn't recommend the solution. We've had a lot of issues with licensing and support, among other concerns. Overall, I'd rate the solution four out of ten.

We're using the latest version of the solution currently. I'd recommend the product to other organizations. So far, for us, it's worked pretty well. I'd rate the solution six out of ten. I'm sure as it matures and they add more features according to their client's requirements, it will get better. While they need more online documentation we can see it's already getting better. It just needs more time to develop as a product.

I haven't worked too closely with the solution, so I don't understand its full capacity. We have an entire Huawei architecture center. We do have equipment on the firewall side, run by Huawei, however, we haven't upgraded so far, we're just doing it to run parallel assistance with Cisco. We just need support from Huawei but we have not paid for the support yet, and we're lacking in that space. For that reason, we're trying to run another Cisco solution. Due to the fact we are a government organization, we need to only use an on-premise solution, although we are planning to integrate into the public cloud. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. It's capabilities, at the end of the day, are quite good. However, we prefer Cisco, as it has a very good support system and users can upgrade incrementally more easily.

My recommendation for anybody who is researching this solution is to start with a proof of concept. We no longer use Huawei as our firewall. The number one vendor in the market is Fortinet, then there is Palo Alto, and finally Checkpoint. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.
