Untangle NG Firewall

Places where it's well suited:
  • Churches/schools/small to medium businesses
  • SD-WAN
  • Web filtering appliance
  • Captive portal for guest wifi

  • 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.

  • The UI could be a little flashier.
  • Getting your license file moved from one firewall to another can be tough at times... but support is great if you need it.
  • Ability to upload reports to a portal versus getting them emailed would be best (some reports can get 100+ Mb depending on all the bells and whistles).

Alternatives Considered

We selected untangle NG due to the flexibility, and the rack based architecture. Period

Return on Investment

  • 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.
