    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."

    What is our primary use case?

    It is a network access control solution. It is used for local access as well as remote access.

    I have been using the most recent version of it.

    How has it helped my organization?

    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.

    656,474 professionals have used our research since 2012.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I have been using this solution for a couple of years.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    It has good stability.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    It is good in terms of scalability.

    It is still kind of in the demo mode, so it is not very widely deployed. We currently have maybe a dozen folks.

    How are customer service and support?

    They're pretty good. I would rate them a four out of five.

    Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

    This is really the first solution for this particular task. So, it is new.

    How was the initial setup?

    It is moderately complex. There is a learning curve there.

    I didn't really set it all up in one shot. It probably took days or maybe about a week or so.

    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.

    What other advice do I have?

    It comes down to just your doing your typical homework and evaluating other competing products and making sure it is the best fit.

    I would rate it a nine out of 10. It is a very capable tool.

    Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

    On-premises

    Easy to implement, quick to deploy, and offers helpful support
    Pros and Cons
    • "It is pretty stable."
    • "On the cloud, when you make some changes, it may be difficult."

    What is our primary use case?

    If you want to change your VPN solutions, for example, on Cisco ASA, you can deploy a multifactor authentication inside Appgate SDP. Afterward, you can make a micro-segmentation with these connections.

    How has it helped my organization?

    The core use is as a VPN connection. It is very useful to our company.

    What is most valuable?

    It's easy to deploy and implement the product. 

    You can hide the servers, and you can avoid lateral movement if you pick up any ransomware, for example.

    The solution offers good support.

    It is pretty stable.

    We can scale the solution. 

    What needs improvement?

    On the cloud, when you make some changes, it may be difficult. However, on-premises is very good, and I like it.

    We'd like to be able to change the VPN connection for different areas. For example, if finance wants to connect to SAP, you could grant access to certain people for that, on a specific server.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I've been using the solution for three or four years. 

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    This is a stable solution. If you have a broken connection, with Appgate SDP, you can enjoy 12 hours in the cache to repair or fix the issue. 

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    You do have enough control in order to be able to scale if needed. 

    We have 100 users on the solution currently.

    It's possible that we might increase usage in the future. I'd need to contract more first. 

    How are customer service and support?

    Technical support is really good. If any issues are related to networking, they are quite helpful. 

    Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

    We did previously use Ivanti. 

    How was the initial setup?

    The solution is very easy to deploy. You can deploy it in ten minutes, so it is very fast. 

    We have three people on staff that can handle maintenance tasks. 

    What about the implementation team?

    We used a consultant, and they assisted us in the implementation process. 

    What was our ROI?

    I'm not sure if I witnessed any ROI just yet.

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

    We pay $100 per user per month. One license for the site is around $17.

    Which other solutions did I evaluate?

    We did look into Check Point, among other potential solutions, before choosing this product.

    What other advice do I have?

    Appgate SDP is the best solution for micro-segmentation and supplying VPN solutions. I'd rate it ten out of ten.

    Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

    Hybrid Cloud
