Untangle is by far the best firewall you can get!

We love it and recommend all the time. We have moved clients from Sophos and Fortigate to Untangle, and they love it.

Pros

We love the fact that Untangle has products from a home user to enterprise companies. The flexibility is amazing, from getting an appliance, to being able to deploy it on a VM allows a lot of different companies to get the benefits.

Cons

The interface is not intuitive for a user that has never used a piece of software like this before.

Reasons for Switching to NG Firewall

Price and simplicity.

Untangle NG Firewall a multi functional system for web interface

With many students on our campus I have been able to put my trust in the web filter that NG Firewall provides. Being able to control web searching, access, and the amount of time users spend on the internet i has proven to be highly valuable in my daily responsibilities. Your management will be completely amazed at the results that the system provides. The features are endless and the developers are constantly working to expand functionality as well as stay relevant to a ever changing technology industry.

Pros

The system has many features for example the ability to track web use within any organization from large, medium, to small. Imagine being able to see a extensive report on bandwidth usage. The report will allow you to see where your bandwidth is being chewed up as well as creating a policy to allocate how its parsed out to end users. System Administrators often battle latency on their networks this feature allows you to zero in and control the issue. The entire Untangle NG Firewall is very easy to deploy as well as manage, it has a very slick robust web portal called command center. Command center is exactly what its named. From the portal you have the ability to perform tasks like being able to remote into the NG Firwewall as well as check the system status and keep up to date on licensing. Its all there at your finger tips.

Cons

Integration into a large school campus was flawless. You have the ability to bridge your firewall or let it handle any router functions with existing equipment. Untangle can be function as your main filter on in coming and outgoing network traffic, or it can sit behind your firewall and share in multiple networking tasks.

Reasons for Choosing NG Firewall

There are other choices in the industry however the competitive price and techical support that you will experience with Untangle NG Firewall can not be beat.

A possible options with some advantages, but the costs add up for the modules.

I was evaluating this as a pfSense alternative, and it has some ease of use pros. Easier to install that is wizard based and with a graphical GUI. Easy to get going, and there is a 30 day evaluation for the paid modules. I can see this being a good fit for some uses.

Pros

Very easy to install, with a decent web interface that allows for direct mouse/keyboard graphical browser use, as opposed to text-only console interfaces on other options.

Cons

Cost. The modules that you'd need for any real deployment are not exactly cheap. Alternatives give you much more core, out-of-the-box functionality.

Great for small business

I have implemented it at my office as the primary UTM, testing it for installation at customer sites. The performance is very good, it will email you a detailed report every day. The protection is on par with competitors, but it is simpler to set up than many of them.

Pros

Untangle is available in both free and paid versions. If you want an extra feature beyond basic firewalling, you can pay an annual fee for that feature. They offer a package of all the add-ons for much less than what it would cost to buy them separately, so if you are thinking about using the paid features, they have structured it so it just makes sense to get them all. Even so, the comprehensive bundle price is less than most other UTMs with actively managed security features. The free version does include some lite versions of things like the virus scanner and app control, and includes ad blocking, phishing detection and web monitoring for free. The interface is very easy compared to most UTMs, but you can still dig into the details to accomplish more sophisticated configurations. Even then the system is clearly laid out and easy to navigate.

Cons

Like all web-based UIs, it takes a few clicks to get things done.

Reasons for Choosing NG Firewall

Untangle bundles more real features in its free package that the others only offer as paid upgrades. I want to be able to offer a freely licensed version to my smaller customers.

Reasons for Switching to NG Firewall

Needed UTM features which the Edgerouter lacks, it is just a firewall.

Feature Pack Solution For Non Profits

We purchased an appliance with Untangle included and it has been working for us without a hitch for the last 2 years, it gave our network better management and Untangle just keeps adding new features.

Pros

Untangle provides a very easy robust solution to manage your network, setting up VLANs, Site To Site VPNs, Internal DNS, and web/application filtering.

Cons

Sometimes LT2P VPNs fail to connect but it might bedo to Windows 10, on Android there was no issues.

Reasons for Switching to NG Firewall

Non profit pricing, ease of use, plug and play.
