Overall Satisfaction with Untangle NG Firewall

Untangle NG firewall is being used as a firewall, as a web filter, as a VPN and most importantly as a way to achieve PCI compliance and as a way to keep the internal network as safe as possible by limiting access in any direction to just what is needed and by checking all traffic.
  • The firewall is easy to set up and manage.
  • The open VPN while not as feature rich as some other options is rock solid and consistently needs nothing
  • The web filter app is great, it's easy to block broad categories or specific things as well as white list whatever is needed.
  • Support is responsive and accurate.
  • The dashboard could be a little more customizable.
  • I've run into situations where custom reports do not save correctly.
  • It's not always clear where certain configurations are located, but it's still easy to find them quickly.
  • 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.
NG Firewall was much more friendly in terms of layout and ease of use, the apps section is familiar to anyone and the config while in a sort of odd order is very clearly laid out. I also appreciate Untangle's endless educational videos and the support can't be beat. Overall it was more of a complete package.
I think for anyone that is concerned about security or connectivity Untangle has you covered from a home user protecting the family with a free product to a large organization using the full paid service NG Firewall is a very capable tool in the toolbox for anyone looking to keep the bad stuff out while still maintaining full functionality.
