This firewall should support more of the network layers. Profiling capability should be improved. Setting policies and parameters through the UI should be more automated because the process is manual, where we can only edit one rule at a time.

The configuration needs to be more flexible because it is difficult to do things that are outside of the ordinary. This solution would benefit from having a support portal that can be opened directly from the dashboard.

The contributions I think sometimes take a toll on you like you're going to spend a lot of time on the right contributions. So as a product it is good, but from the development standpoint but if you think about somebody who's not from development background, this won't work. It's not up to speed if you really realize. So the set up process, it's good from a development standpoint. The development was easy to set up because they know that their understanding of the machine that they are going to set it up and take care of everything else.
