Solid Next Gen FW

What do you like best?
The SMC management interface is easy to manipulate. Thick client drag and drop is nice. Support/TAC is decent. NGFW product is quite reliable.
What do you dislike?
it took way too long for the SMC WebUI to get added to a LTS release. It is there now and I look forward to upgrading to this version. When using it as a VPN concentrator automatic Renewal of Gateway Certificates doesn't support ECDSA certs.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Provides security and VPN solution at a competative price when compared to competitors in the space.
