Cyberoam
Our organization found that Cyberoam is a cost-effective solution compared to other vendors. Cyberoam was having issues with SSO for Web Filtering. For, web filtering and application blocking, Cyberoam does not contain enough signatures or data so we can not achieve the goal of all of the sites that need to be blocked. Cyberoam is great because of its ease of use feature.

To protect the local network, [FortiGuard] was utilized. To handle communication between networks, FortiWAN was employed. Wi-Fi communication technology, such as FortiAP, was used. As a result of the solution, different business areas now have wireless connectivity. Because it supports simultaneous connections, it can be easily integrated into small and big solutions.

Cons
Cyberoam
  • Without mentioning an alternative brand, there is another leading company who has updated with firewall UI quite a bit. They offer an expanded line-up to meet a wider array of needs including specific appliances for web caching, proxy servers, and other products that have the same and familiar UI across the products. Each of the products does have some overlap so that customers can choose the right appliance for their use case.
  • After being acquired by Sophos, we saw our year-over-year costs escalate significantly since our original maintenance contract. They should consider revisiting the pricing, especially for education.
  • They should consider a current market analysis and see how the market is changing and adapting with other lower cost appliances for their product line up.

Although prices are not always affordable, it is a very complete choice that may integrate well with other technologies and gives good technical assistance. Fortinet solutions are ideal for businesses with a significant number of users. It is suggested that you acquire their annual maintenance plan.
