  • It's allowed us to be PCI compliant which we need to do business.
  • It's allowed us to not only be PCI compliant but follow best practice to be actually as secure as we can be.
  • It's really presented us with a lot of flexibility in terms of how we connect to other services.
  • There is some maintenance, but it's very minimal.

  • Easy setup and implementation made ROI easy to achieve. An Untangle HA solution is 1/2-1/3 the cost of a comparable Cisco/Checkpoint/Palo Alto solution.
  • non-business internet usage has nearly ground to a halt.
  • SD-WAN integration made it easy to connect branch offices quickly without complicated IPSEC configuration.

  • 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.

  • 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.
