Very capable, flexible, and robust
Pros and Cons
  • "The flexibility of the tool is valuable. It is very robust. It has a very robust configuration capability."
  • "One thing that kind of sticks out to me is the ability to do a proper non-split tunnel. VPN tunnel-wise, it is not really a true unsplit tunnel, but I think that's just because of the way it's designed. A split VPN basically allows your system to talk to other systems without being forced down the tunnel. A VPN running in a non-split tunnel mode forces all the traffic down the tunnel to wherever you're VPNing to. It forces the traffic down so that the traffic is subject to the firewall and rules that you have in your corporate environment and such. It helps to prevent remote malicious folks that may be talking directly to that box from piggybacking into the corporate environment through it. They do it partially, but it would be nice to see more of an enterprise-level solution there."

The benefit is a more granular access control structure than a traditional VPN.

What is most valuable?

The flexibility of the tool is valuable. It is very robust. It has a very robust configuration capability.

It is pretty well documented. It is also good interface-wise. They've made some improvements over the past few patches.

What needs improvement?

It comes down to cost. It is a pretty expensive tool.

What about the implementation team?

I did it in-house. I also take care of its maintenance.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is a pretty expensive tool. It is maybe about $20,000 per year for a hundred users or so.
