We switched firewall solution due to licensing costs and scalability

Review by: Adam Churchman

Valuable Features:

  • Snort
  • CARP
  • Load balancing
  • VPN

Improvements to My Organization:

  • Reduced the cost of our firewall solution
  • Enhanced throughput compared with similar priced devices
  • Stability
  • Reliability

Room for Improvement:

I'm no expert on this subject, and the OS performs all that is required.

Use of Solution:

I've used it for over one year.

Deployment Issues:

No issues encountered.

Stability Issues:

We've only had to do one reboot in six months.

Scalability Issues:

None as yet, because the solution hasn't reached capacity yet.

Previous Solutions:

  • Sonicwall
  • Cisco ASA

We switched due to licensing costs and scalability.

Initial Setup:

It's relatively simple and straightforward, with enough documentation avalable online for the average user to install and setup.


£2000+ (AUD$3500+)
