    There are reasons to use them separately. For example, I use Failover alone to get reports on Internet downtime to renegotiate ISP rates at clients' locations.

    They can still be unified to make it easier to understand the interactions between them. Use only the parts you need. I can't remember how many questions like these come up.

    What you're describing is the edge case... We shouldn't build based on edge cases.

    But the UI is nice being split, having WAN Failover separate means more screen space for a more complex setup, which is how we get the ability to define our own tests so easily. So it's not like I don't like them separate, I just feel like they shouldn't be sold separately.

    They could still be sold separately and have as many screens. It would just help reduce confusion.

    Thank you all for the replies. To sum it up, WAN Balancer is needed when you have more than one WAN and there is no other way to distribute traffic to those multiple WANs (are we sure we can't distribute outgoing traffic with any SSH command?). I will contact sales to find out whether a user can buy only this only.

    NGFW can distribute to multiple WAN using NAT rules. The advantage of WAN Balancer with Failover is down WAN traffic can be rerouted dynamically.
