Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"As compared to the other major vendors in the SD-WAN market, such as VeloCloud, Cisco, and others, the tunnel-free and secure vector routing technology is its major USP, which gives plenty of room to discuss with the customer why IPSec from 1998 is a bit outdated."

"The most valuable feature of this solution is the automatic failover."

More Cradlepoint NetCloud Pros →

"Forcepoint's stability is satisfactory, for the most part.""It is a stable solution, and there are no issues so far.""We like the scalability of Forcepoint because with the Forcepoint NGFW solution, we can scale anything. The solution has central management, so we can manage all the branches and devices centrally in one controller.""I have found that Forcepoint Next Generation Firewall is easy to use, highly secure, and the main VPN tunnel is created automatically which is a benefit.""Next Generation Firewall's best feature is that it can be managed on one platform.""The VPN is great.""It is a scalable product. I know a customer who has deployed more than 4,000 firewalls in a single deployment.""Forcepoint is a good, stable solution."

Cons
"The UI of the SSR conductor is the main part where improvements can be done. Today, for every configuration step, you have to do a series of clicks. What we are missing there are wizards. For example, I have two applications, and I want one application to be prioritized against the other. In such a case, a wizard for assigning policies to a service without configuring each step by hand would be very helpful. There should be an overhaul of the GUI of the conductor. The functionality they have got in the Mist portal should be baked into the conductor itself. It would be really great, but as we all know, that won't happen."

"The performance of group-based clouds should be enhanced."

More Cradlepoint NetCloud Cons →

"The initial setup of the Forcepoint Next Generation Firewall has areas that are difficult.""They need to work on stability, it has not been the best in our experience.""I would like to see more sizing in the next release, and the roadmap should be clear.""Management could be better. They can improve the management. I think all our customers can't accept firewalls that have standalone management. So, they prefer Fortinet or Palo Alto. But overall, inspection and other features are working fine.""The ability to dynamically change policies could be improved.""The security features need to be improved.""My team is looking for more throughput and better integration with our security framework.""The solution needs to add an antivirus profile and anti-spyware profile, not just policies and VPN."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "We are currently renegotiating the offer for the licenses and the license bundle model. The license for an ISP has to be different from the license for an end customer. This is something we are currently renegotiating with Juniper, but, of course, the pricing for the licensing is always an issue when you want to get more customers."
  • More Juniper Session Smart Router Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The annual cost is less than $200,000 yet more than $150,000.00."
  • More Cradlepoint NetCloud Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "Everything in Forcepoint comes with an individual license, which is kind of a problem. In our last meeting, they said that it may change at the beginning of 2021, and they will try to merge some licenses together. Customers will get more features than what they got previously. We will wait and see."
  • "We have found the price could be reduced. It is a little expensive."
  • "The pricing of the solution is normally competitive with other products."
  • "The pricing should be more competitive against other vendors in the market."
  • "The cost is fair, but it could be improved."
  • "It could be cheaper like Fortinet."
  • "I consider Forcepoint Next Generation Firewall's price to be good."
  • "We have just a subscription for the cloud, and this license is great. The license is so good."
