The application design and easy of use fits 2018 threats much better than a L4 firewall. It also works better than competitors products.

Awesome!! GUI Interface and it's very user friendly.
In GUI interface, there are so many tabs which helps to clear what type of certificate or profile required.

So it helps to clear all networking path for any configuration.


Thank you

Gotta be the awesome admins, right and ?

Got to be their deep packet inspection engine for application recognition. They do a great job recongizing traffic that is encrypted. Right ?

Threat Prevention, its great to have every single signature working 100% of the time and not be too worried about performance.

My favorite feature is the test command functionality. Security policies and routing can be tested and the behavior can be verified before and during production operations. This makes troubleshooting and planning much easier.
