    Any organization with a robust IT support network and with 100+ users, all the way up to international conglomerates with millions of workers. The only situation I can see where it might be harder is if you have a very small business with limited technical know-how. Otherwise, it's honestly the no-brainer choice.

    Untangle

    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

    Citrix

    • Excellent integration with the Citrix Cloud Connector makes it a breeze to use.
    • Access control is locked down with biometric security and easy password creation.
    • License usage is always 100% secure.

    Untangle

    • 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

    Citrix

    • Sometimes the interface is a bit slow to load. That's honestly about it!

    Untangle

    • 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

      Citrix

      After a lengthy vendor selection process we determined that CloudBridge was the best solution—although as always with demos it was difficult to tell if we'd really made the right decision. Since selecting CloudBridge—hough I have had lots of input from colleagues who use other systems—I feel very happy with our choice. The feature set alone is just far superior.

      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

      Citrix

      • Tremendous savings from high uptime percent.
      • Keeping our remote users engaged and stable at work means we can hire anywhere on earth.
      • Access control keeps our IT team from constantly being tied up with password resets.

      Untangle

      • 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.
