CloudGenix

CloudGenix would be suited for any company that has an internet connection if you have multiple sites you could use this to help with network traffic and what should take precedence over other applications. If you didn't have various sites, you could go with another type of internet connection.CloudGenix may not be suited for that scenario.

WatchGuard XTM - Discontinued Product

WatchGuard XTM comes in different models, so you can choose the model best suited for your company size. I think it works well in small as well as very large networks. I have not used this feature, but you can create a "FireCluster" to connect member devices of the same model if you need to put multiple WatchGuard XTMs in your environment. Coming from command line, it took a little adjusting to learn which screen to use to set up the different rules. Once you understand how to set up policies, it is simple to create more. New firewall administrators would appreciate the ease of creating policies, and expert administrators should find everything they need plus extra features.

WatchGuard XTM - Discontinued Product

  • The UTM package has caused me some issues in the past, specifically IPS and AV at the edge. In my experience when AV at the edge is unable to sync with its third party database the rule fails and will block all traffic by default.
  • Some of the default global settings can cause issues. One common one is SYN packet not returning ACK. Turning off this setting will allow packets that don't complete the 3-way handshake to pass. Not the most ideal solution.
  • An area that I think could be improved is in application awareness. The only firewall that can do true layer 7 policying is PaloAlto firewalls, that I'm aware of. I think firewalls need to start moving to that and this is an area WatchGuard could add and improve.

The support was super fast in the beginning. Sometimes it seems now that the support does not get back to you as quickly. When we do get in contact with the support, they are usually knowledgeable and can help find the problem. The support has also been easy to work with.

Alternatives Considered

CloudGenix

We evaluated Silverpeaks and Cisco. We found that CloudGenics' had a pricing model that met our needs. The sales team we worked with went over our existing environment thoroughly to provide the right size solution without compromising or limiting our technology needs. While the overall solutions form each vendor would have worked, we simply believed CloudGenic was the right fit for our company based on price, sales, support, and functionality.
