We are looking to move away from Smoothwall as our UTM, and go to perhaps Palo Alto, or perhaps Lightspeed for the filter, and a separate firewall. But how do you do it? What is everyone else using???
Any comments or recommendations welcome!
Using PFsense here for a firewall, using Squid & Dansguardian as a content filter.
Why the move from Smoothwall?
We have had various problems that were never satisfactorily resolved by the support team despite long calls. Authentication issues, a firewall that was not as good as our five + year old Sonicwall, problems with reporting and the time it took to produce any. A few other niggles and issues, and we have had enough.
Just bought a Palo, not cheap in comparison to some others but you get so much control and visibility I'd say it's worth it :)
