Environments where web security is a necessity. It doesn't matter how big or small your business is, securing all assets is very important.

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

cWatch

  • Blocking malware
  • Monitoring for suspicious traffic and activity
Rob Morton | TrustRadius Reviewer

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

  • How updates are managed
  • Support - timing and back and forth with question/answers
Rob Morton | TrustRadius Reviewer

Untangle NG Firewall

  • 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.

Alternatives Considered

All are quality products, but each have their downsides. Seems to be similar across the product line, how they manage updating the software. There always seems to be issues after updates.

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

Return on Investment

cWatch

  • Application uptime is key. Managing risk of downtime saves much more than the cost of this platform.
Rob Morton | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.
