Midsized business is where I have used it. Have used it to connect to other Untangle boxes across town and in other countries with NO issues and works with MS Domains across these VPN connections. Probably less appropriate for small home networks or large businesses.

Pros

Aruba Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN)

  • An intricate system of connections that make it seem like your outside sites are all on one single LAN
  • Well priced in their category as others are a bit pricier for the same services
  • Aruba is backed by a well staffed support team that can get you through your issues

  • Web Filtering is strong, and can also do application fingerprinting to allow Facebook, but not Facebook games. Secondly, a separate partition called a "rack" can be set up to give one subnet or group of users different web filtering policies than another. For example, teachers would get more freedom to browse the web than students at a school.
  • Built-in SD-WAN connectivity as part of your license. IPSEC tunnel creation is also amazingly easy.
  • Will install on any x86 hardware created in the last 5-10 years. Ram and processor requirements per user are very low.
  • Reporting is phenomenal, however you can get death by details very easily.

  • The dashboard could be a little more customizable.
  • I've run into situations where custom reports do not save correctly.
  • It's not always clear where certain configurations are located, but it's still easy to find them quickly.

The Untangle NG Firewall is way more intuitive but the last barracuda I used was almost 8 years ago.

  • Before my installation, I was getting called 3-4 times a week to clean malware infections. Now I am getting called 3-4 times a year.
  • Employees are far more productive when they can't access their social media from their work computers.
  • Spam has been blocked and quarantined from hitting our users' inboxes, drastically reducing the time it takes to sort through daily email.
