I used to think that Sandboxing was only available on ATP Series, but now I see the gold security pack with sandboxing is also available on FLEX Series.

According to specsheets the ATP's are within the same number only slightly more performant, which makes me think that only the ATP800 is relevant for extra performance nowadays cause there ain't no FLEX800?

Or am I missing some services which do work on ATPXXX and not FLEXXXX? Difference between on premise and Nebula?

    Hi @nielsscheldeman,

    With Gold Security Pack, FLEX series have the same feature of security services as ATP series. ATP series don't have Hotspot Management service.

    So can you tell me what good reason there is now left to choose an ATP series instead of FLEX?

    Hi @nielsscheldeman,

    ATP is default bundled with a one-year Gold Security Pack license. If you need all UTM features, you can choose ATP series.

    If you are not quite sure if all UTM features are necessary in your network, you can chooses USG FLEX with bundled UTM Security Pack. After the 1-year UTM Security licenses are expired, you can then choose Gold Security Pack or UTM Security Pack based on your needs.

    So it's only a matter of budget? If you buy a Flex series and immediatly activate gold pack on it, it's all the same, but a little less cheaper then buying an ATP Series?

    Please Zyxel, compare the ATP100 and USGFLEX100 besides the bundled license.

    If hardware the same?

    Seems ATP has a bit better performance.

    ATP100 bundle incl 1Y Gold is cheaper than USGFLEX100 (hw only)+1Y Gold.

    I think ATP is an older model that USGFLEX. Right/wrong?

    So maybe ATP will EOL before USGFLEX?

    Any difference when managed by Nebula?

    seems to be a price strategic, Zyxel guys encourages customers to purchase full bundle license initially.

    Which is why there have lower price than Hardware+license.

    So far there is no information about EOL for ATP/FLEX.

    if you compare USG FLEX 700 to ATP700 the SPI Firewall Throughput is more on the ATP

    I would think both will EOL at the same time 2025 maybe longer
