Cato Networks Review

Stable, easy to setup, the support is good, and it gives you higher internet bandwidth

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is to replace the routers we have and to combine the various ISP into one trunk.

How has it helped my organization?

It gives us higher internet bandwidth.

What is most valuable?

The feature that I find to be the most valuable is the bandwidth aggregation.

What needs improvement?

They can't do one-to-one NAT (Network Address Translation) in AP (their access point), and that is something that Palo Alto can do.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for a few months.

We are using the most current version. It's a SAAS solution.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Cato Networks is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It seems to be scalable, but we are a small company. Everyone in the company uses it. We are using their VPN for everyone who is working at home. All of the internet traffic is flowing through it. We have 175 people int total.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is very good. I would rate them a nine or ten out of ten.

They have been quite good for us.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previously, we were using Palo Alto. 

We switched from Palo Alto because the renewal costs were getting expensive.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price is not an issue for us, as it is priced more competitively than some other vendors.

What other advice do I have?

It's a cloud solution. It has local hardware, but it's a could solution.

If it's a good use case for you, then it's a good solution. Cato Networks seems to do everything we wanted it to do.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Private Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?

Amazon Web Services (AWS)
