  • This product has kept hackers, malware, and viruses at bay for large hospitals and small alike. Very valuable data can reside behind this so long as it is set up correctly.
  • The value is great with SnortV3. Very versatile if you need a hybrid scenario with Multi-Cloud support.

  • We have seen improved throughput on our internet.
  • It took several attempts with Cisco engineers to configure the device; it requires a deep set of knowledge to set up in a more complicated environment.
  • This will allow us to move forward with a more stable and configurable environment with security available we didn't have before.

  • It has been positive. The cost of us being down because of an attack or infection far outweighs the price of the unit. It was a good purchase for the peace of mind of knowing we are protected.
