Although the reporting capabilities of the management console are functional, the canned reports are pretty basic. The administrator can export the raw data in CSV format for more detailed reporting, but this is an extra hassle; we would like to see the reporting beefed up in the base product.

Given that this is clearly an endpoint security solution, it would be great if DeviceWall integrated directly with solutions like Cisco System's NAC, so that a device could not even connect to the corporate network if it didn't have the DeviceWall agent installed.
