Auvik

Auvik is a great tool for discovering the details and eccentricities of your or your customer's networks. It truly is a tool I didn't know I needed and now I can't live without. Immediately after deploying it I was able to proactively identify some network pain points that allowed me to correct multiple network deficiencies and create happier customers without even realizing they were having problems (slow network speeds, congested ports). Onboarding and ongoing support are top notch. They really don't just "throw you to the wolves," though that being said, the complexity of the product does merit taking the onboarding and initial setup seriously and not just going with a "deploy and go" type of scenario, but that's strictly because of the scope and feature set that the product offers.

Untangle NG Firewall

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

Auvik

  • Setup is easy
  • Integrates with Connectwise
  • Integrates with IT Glue

Untangle NG Firewall

  • 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.

Cons

  • SNMP traps (not an advertised feature)
  • Endpoint monitoring (not an advertised feature)

Untangle NG Firewall

  • 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.

Alternatives Considered

Auvik

Actually, we went from Auvik to LogicMonitor, Auvik is like playing with Tinker Toys compared to LogicMonitor. We moved from Auvik to LogicMonitor for a bunch of reasons, pricing was among them. Auvik charges extra for Netflow monitoring where LogicMonitor has is included. If you want anything more than basic ping monitoring in Auvik you have to do an SNMP walk on every device that you are monitoring and then write to create custom OID's to monitor for what should be simple out of the box monitoring, such as Cisco Health or Jitter/Latency.

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

Return on Investment

Auvik

  • Better customer experiences
  • Simplicity addressing network concerns
  • Automated network discovery and documentation
Drew Hackworth | TrustRadius Reviewer

Untangle NG Firewall

  • 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.
