A review of Spectre DPI and its correspondence to the company’s objectives

No problems occurred during the installation and configuration of the product. Physical switching was carried out by our engineers, and software configuration was provided by ITGrad specialists servicing Spectre DPI. Previously, we used Cisco SCE to ensure compliance with the Federal Law and experienced frequent problems with blocking (incorrect URL, unable to block https, etc.). With Spectre DPI, we no longer have to worry about compliance with the Federal Law.
In general, we have no comments regarding the work of technical support, all issues were resolved fairly quickly.
