Meraki MX Firewalls Review

Be prepared for a new way of managing networks.​


What is most valuable?

The solution was cloud managed, so I could access it from anywhere and deploy it with zero configuration.

How has it helped my organization?

Slowness or security can now be answered instantly.

What needs improvement?

The event logging, alerting, and reporting features could use improvement.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used this solution for 2 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I did not encounter any issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I did not encounter any issues with scalability.

How is customer service and technical support?

I would rate technical support 10/10.

Which solutions did we use previously?

I previously used Cisco and I switched because of missing manageability.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was easy. Some features need more investigation (VPN).

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

Compare total costs (setup and management), taking in mind that cloud features do more than just stop traffic on the edge: they identify both traffic and users.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We used Cisco products, but we did not evaluate other options.

What other advice do I have?

This is not just a firewall, but also an anti-virus, SPAM and proxy service. Be prepared for a new way of managing networks.
