Is it only antivirus and not contain any firewall?
RAM consumption less than bitdefender

I have not tried this free version, but I think it may be a common practice of antivirus vendors to remove some useful features from their free versions.
Endpoint protection is free too for home UTM users! You are allowed to install it on 10 pcs. :)

Install it in a VM, register the appliance, download installer and remember the admin password then delete the VM = unlimited installations without any UTM. Don't tell anyone! :D
So, this is your trick to get XG firewall? nice move, mate ;)

XG sadly doesn't have the endpoint management, they moved it to their "cloud" based management system. So if you want to try this, you have to install the UTM version. Also the firewall has to be installed on a dedicated system/hyperisor, otherwise it won't be all that useful.;)
