    This is effective for businesses who need a network solution that works more or less out of the box, without having to coordinate multiple additional devices in the configuration process. Correspondingly, users with needs for more advanced functionality or configurability, or modification may benefit from a different model or different product line.

    Untangle NG Firewall

    Untangle is very strong in the "traditional" sense of security. That means an edge appliance that either works with an existing router or is the router itself (recommended). This approach has also been adapted well to cloud environments in order to protect virtual servers and VDI workstations.As mentioned earlier, many schools are using cloud-based filtering for their 1:1 solutions for their students. This is an area where Untangle is unable to serve. Some have used an instance of Untangle in the cloud with VPN to serve their remote needs, but it is not the same as solutions that are designed for cloud-based filtering of devices without VPN.

    Pros

    Cisco 1000 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 1000)

    • Seem to be well made and quality hardware and software
    • Setup is simple and has a great wizard for initial config
    • Well priced for a product in its category

    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

    Cisco 1000 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 1000)

    • Possibly higher port count on built in switch.
    • External WiFi antenna connection to allow bigger WiFi coverage.
    • More robust wall mount setup using screw slots, currently only 2.

    Untangle NG Firewall

    • The full suite can be expensive for business but will be powerful enough.
    • The full suite for home or small office isn't that bad of a price but may be out of reach for most home users but remember the basics are FREE so anyone can get started with it.
    • I would like to see it promoted for mid to large businesses as I think it can handle it.

    I would rate these routers useability as 9/10 - I've designed and deployed Cisco solutions for the last 20 or so years, so, therefore, know what I am buying and try to get an understanding of the capabilities before deploying. The Cisco 1000 series Integrated Service Router is a rock-solid investment with great throughput "out of the box".

    With any Cisco product, you are very well supported by the Technical Assistance Centre (TAC). This is one of the major plus points when selecting Cisco networking products - working in IT for the last 20years you soon appreciate that it is impossible to know everything and that there are people within Cisco you can lean-on when you need assistance.

    Alternatives Considered

    Cisco 1000 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 1000)

    We have used DLink and Fortinet Routers. I find Cisco superior in management, reliability and overall network performance over the two. I will say Fortinet has not experienced any failures and does provide very similar functionality, I simply find Cisco to be my preferred Router hardware. I further base this on support. When things go wrong and they often can in networking, they Support team is excellent in helping identify and resolve the issue quickly

    Untangle NG Firewall

    NG Firewall was much more friendly in terms of layout and ease of use, the apps section is familiar to anyone and the config while in a sort of odd order is very clearly laid out. I also appreciate Untangle's endless educational videos and the support can't be beat. Overall it was more of a complete package

    Return on Investment

    Cisco 1000 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 1000)

    • Once they are installed they just work. Even when a device enters EOL/EOS they keep chugging along.
    • Good lifetime - they don't retire models so often that you can't keep up.
    • Good extended support, this allows us to keep them in place as long as possible (or practical) and increases our ROI.

    Untangle NG Firewall

    • The positive is the savings in time the IT department has recouped by not having to continuously clean and maintain end point computers. Not to mention helping end user use their time more wisely by not wasting time on non-work related web activities.
    • The only negative is complaints from end users about the restrictions.
