Previous Solutions

I used Checkpoint, Cisco ASA, Palo Altos, Juniper. To configure the devices you need days, to spin up Meraki Firewall you need minutes.

Initial Setup

It's very simple.

Implementation Team

We did it in house, across five offices and the data center.

ROI

It saves time on spinning up new offices, and on managing the firewall.

Other Solutions Considered

Juniper switches.

Other Advice

I will never go back to any other solution. Right now our corporate network, across the five offices and the data center, is 100% Meraki, Meraki Firewalls, Meraki Switches, and Meraki APs.
