    Astaro does provide web filtering, including https scanning, dual virus scanning (Avira and ClamAV), Anti-Spam (CommTouch), IPS (Snort Inline), etc... Another nice feature that the ops didn't mentioned is the live bandwidth monitoring.
    The free edition for business use doesn't have 95% of the listed features.

    Hi Lannie and anyone else who has tried both Astaro HOME edition and Untangle,

    1) How did the free Astaro home edition compare to Untangle? I am trying to decide which one to install on my home network.

    2) I realize they both have free ClamAV, but is the Avira AV free in Astaro home edition, or do you have to pay a subscription like Kaspersky in Untangle?

    Thanks.

    Astaro much better

    Look at the post above yours. Astaro include both Avira and ClamAV for free.

    Sorry, I havent had time to test yet. Had a surprise bday party this weekend! I will be testing it this week. I know I'm testing the home version at first but I havent received any prices for the Pro version yet. So far, UT has everyone beat in pricing.

    ugh!! I just got the pricing for Astaro in the Corporate environment. For 1000 users, they wants $15,000 a year! They dont break down the options seperately. If I wanted 250 email users and 1000 web filtering, you can pay for just those amounts.

    They dont offer edu pricing as well. UT has them stomped in pricing.

    If I am not wrong we are comparing Astaro Home Edition and Untangle free version, not the pricing. They included some of the features are free in Astaro Home Edition but we have to pay in Untangle. You should reviews the options

    Thats what the original post was about, feature comparison not price. I really dont feel that there is even a reason to compare the "home" edition with untangle. The "home" edition of Astaro cannot be used in a business setting, so there is no value in doing a review. I'm not wasting my time doing a review for home users. I will only do a review for business owners and managers looking to add some value to their networks.
