    Cisco SD-WAN

    Cisco SD-WAN is well designed for organizations that want to have full control or make their cloud and digital transformation easily. [Cisco] SD-WAN gives adaptability to use various transport links like 4G, 5G, or internet dedicated line, and WAN links can be used effectively. The troubleshooting is very fast and efficient and saves us lots of time, energy, and costs.

    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 SD-WAN

    • Cisco SD-WAN provides ultra-modern analytics, monitoring, and automation for any associate networking.
    • Cisco SD-WAN helps our organization fulfill optimal speeds and the best staging speed boost-up.
    • One of the major reasons to buy this application is that it empowers major augmentation in cybersecurity while also reducing overhead costs and simplifying operations, etc.
    • SD-WAN provides elucidation to our organization that cuts out high-priced routing and drags back on hardware costs while contributing to our business the elasticity to access multi-cloud services.

    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

    • The minimum subscription time is three years, which makes the initial investment of the projects more expensive.
    • The types of subscriptions that determine the accumulated bandwidth of the transport links generate a limitation to the additional solution that the hardware supports.
    • Access to the Vmanage administration console must be from a previously established IP address, which removes flexibility of access to the cloud.
    Oswaldo Tirado Diaz | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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.

    Alternatives Considered

    Cisco SD-WAN

    Cisco SD-WAN is the simplest to implement with graphical user interface full configuration. There [are] also many automated parts of [the] configuration, like tunnels configurations and routes propagation. Cisco also brings its SD-WAN solution as a complementary solution to users already using Cisco equipment like Meraki and Firepower firewalls. This could be an advantage also.

    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 SD-WAN

    • Managing to use business applications efficiently causes us to get more value from our cloud subscriptions
    • Able to use streaming services improved employees' morale and increased their performance
    • Able to combine multiple connections, helped reduce costs, and prevented us from investing in only the most expensive WAN supplier
    • Instead of relying on one supplier when one connection was down, we managed to carry on with another broadband solution

    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.
