If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Sangfor NGAF, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
My advice is that if you have a large enough budget then implement Palo Alto. Alternatively, with a lesser budget, I recommend using Sangfor. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
It's important to note that the performance of the solution depends on the initial pre-working and sizing. The sizing is handled by the company and they know their product, so they normally size it very well. They also put in provision for future growth so there's never an issue of performance. There's no such thing as 100% so I would rate this solution a nine out of 10.
I would recommend this solution. I'd rate it an eight out of ten. Not a ten because it's not so user-friendly and needs better integration.
Sangfor NGAF is a good product. People should try it, especially those who are not using the software. These firewalls are great and everything is becoming properly defined, even the network, the computer, the firewalls, storage, and everything is just waiting to be properly defined. It's a unique combination and people should try it. In the future, I would like to see it being controlled by an automatic, virtual orchestrator to control the firewall and all the data. One a scale of one to ten, I rate this solution a nine.
I'm researching firewalls. Which firewall would you recommend betweeen Sangfor and Sophos XG?
