Appgate
It is best suited for larger companies with lots of remote workers that need complex access management. We've barely scratched the surface on what Appgate can do via its API.

Well Suited: - Work from home scenario - While working with confidential data - While working with financial data - Office intranet Less Suited: - Reduces internet speed - If the user gets a password, can exit/close the app.

Cons
Appgate
  • Live logging in the client. Currently you have to "download" the logs into a zip file and then open that zipfile to look at the logs. There's no logfile to tail or watch.
  • Load balancing between controllers could be better. Currently relies on round robin DNS and sometimes a browser will pick a different IP than previous and you'll get a big "LOST CONNECTION TO CONTROLLER" message.

  • Sometimes the interface crashes and I need to kill it and restart
  • It can unintentionally block some services like dropbox
  • I don't get a notification when I need to re-authenticate

The company has been supportive overall of our needs and desired features. I have not personally called the support services, but I've heard no direct complaints either.

The existing system was FortiGate. The management of the system was a hassle. Because IT personnel had to manually create VPN accounts, user passwords were known to who created them and the end user did not have a way to change them. This created a security issue in the event an IT engineer left the company.

Both are good but sometimes relationship and cost is the factor to decide the final vendor.
