Straightforward initial setup and good scalability

Since we do system integration, we have a lot of clients we deploy. There is not really a single case to point to because we have multiple clients. It depends and can vary from customer to customer.

Defending the business processes.

If they could increase the performance a little better because the device sometimes gets slow. If they could increase the performance it would be great.

The solution's stability is quite good. We have about six hundred users.

We have been using this solution for six or seven years; we didn't use another solution before.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was very straightforward. It only took a couple of hours, it doesn't take long.

What other advice do I have?

In terms of advice, I would suggest others should use it. It is quite a good product, it is one of the market leaders. I believe it could be as good as other solutions. There are two things you require: one is support and the other one is credibility. Both are there with this product.

I would rate this solution eight out of ten.
