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

Cisco SD-WAN

  • Before Cisco SD-WAN, our users even struggled to send emails with Microsoft 365
  • Cloud applications, such as SharePoint, were not taking a long time to load and made it impossible to collaborate
  • Streaming services--even though video streaming does not work at desired levels, music streaming started to work without interruption

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 SD-WAN

  • Ease of initial configuration - I'm not actually sure how to make it easier without losing granularity and control, but it can be very difficult and confusing when first setting up. Afterwards, it's just point and click.
  • Model upload - It would be nice if a given hardware model could be "uploaded" to provide a basic configuration to start with.
  • Logs - I'd prefer more options for filtering logs and having certain ones not be alarms of any kind.

  • 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 support that we have received during the deployment phase and the guidance that was imparted with were top-notch. We could have configured this without a doubt, but the expert opinion and advice that was provided to us helped accelerate the design and implementation process that we took. I won't go into specifics, as there are too many and they are on the case to case basis, but I am confident that you will be informed on what "fits" your needs best.

I haven't used them much, but they did answer my question quickly.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco SD-WAN

We only compared Silver Peak NX and Cisco SD-WAN. Since we are primarily a Cisco infrastructure shop, it seemed to integrate better than Silver Peak. We liked the confirmed long-term support from Cisco we have grown accustomed to and did not want to take a chance on a new player. Nothing bad to say about Silver Peak, we just chose another route.

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

Return on Investment

Cisco SD-WAN

  • In my previous company, we had several production facilities across the US using Cisco's SD-WAN and it allowed the company to continue to provide for employees and our end customers when problems arose with circuits.
  • As I mentioned previously, vManage allowed the company to track when there are circuit outages in a really simple portal. Before Cisco's SD-WAN, we had to spend money on 3rd party monitoring.
  • Whenever there was an issue with the server, an employee could request assistance from anywhere instead of worrying about whether or not there was an IT employee present.

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.
