Based on my experience, this is a solid platform for a small to mid sized company, especially when there is someone who has IT experience, or can get outsourced IT help. I would not recommend for someone who is a technology novice. Also, this is a competent device for someone who is looking to ad...

    We use pfSense as our primary firewalls on two fiber connections into our organization. We also utilize pfSense for load balancing and fail over of incoming requests for our software and service hosting...We needed something easy to setup and manage on a day to day basis that didn't come with exp...

      Places where this product is well suited - … * VPN Functionality - Client to Site/Site to Site … * Internet Edge Gateway - NAT/PAT providing internet access to staff/production networks … * Interior firewall - Network segmentation

        It is well suited to companies that don't have a large network department and security office. Large enterprises may have too many layers of personnel to make the transition as seamless as it could be.

          Fortigate works pretty well if you choose the correct device based on the number of your users. If you need to apply policies by application this solution can help you. Their other features like web filter, VPN connections, traffic reports, etc work well too. In general terms, the solution is ver...

            When discussing NGFW characteristics, I believe that it goes beyond just features and capabilities...I feel that a true NGFW brings an aspect of collaborating and verification of data/information available within the environment. The WatchGuard NGFW products do just that.

                  Whenever anything goes wrong on my PC, my first instinct is to immediately fire up Malwarebytes in order to launch a full system scan. I usually am hopeful that Malwarebytes finds at least one piece of unfriendly malware because it usually means that it can be removed by Malwarebytes and then all...

                    pfSense is perfectly suited for small businesses as a firewall/router. Their hardware product line can scale with business size while the downloadable ISO can be installed directly on low-power devices.

                          Palo Alto ranks as one of the best nex-gen firewalls. Their OS, real-time analytics and their wildfire product is pretty top-notch. They are even branching out in the AV side, just don't have the GUIs integrated well, so it more sites to go to. Instead, one global GUI would be nice.

                                  Implementing an ASA is not advisable for a small business with a tight budget for IT. To get the juice you must be willing to invest in licenses and maintain the support contract to continue receiving updates. In the medium term you will be satisfied, but in the meantime I am sure that the financ...

It has solved the problem of needing a firewall for cyber security. It has also solved the problem of employees needing remote access into the corporate network.
