Meraki MX Firewalls Review
All devices are accessible from one place with the administrator panel


Primary Use Case

Using it as an endpoint firewall on different locations. We used different MX devices to setup a VPN from off-site locations to our main office. It is a firewall for dummies. Almost sets itself up.

Improvements to My Organization

Minimal fuss. Stable and fast enough. Easy to administer and saves time when you have many smaller locations that you have to manage.

Valuable Features

Auto-setup VPN between locations and the simple "cloud-panel" to administer all devices with an elegant overview, all from one place.

Room for Improvement

It can always improve pricewise regarding throughput.

Use of Solution

Less than one year.

Stability Issues

No.

Scalability Issues

No.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Have not contacted customer service/technical support yet.

Previous Solutions

Smaller devices: SonicWall, ZyXel, etc.

We switched to get the Auto VPN function and the brilliant administrator panel, where all devices are accessible from one place.

Initial Setup

Initial setup was straightforward and extremely easy.

Implementation Team

No need for a vendor team to implement. Used in-house expertise.

ROI

Not measured.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

You get what you pay for.

With this device, "anybody" can set it up.  Should keep IT man hours to a minimum.

Other Solutions Considered

Did not really evaluate other solutions as this was a side project to our "main" firewalls. At the time, we did some research on the Internet and did not really find anything comparable to Meraki.

Other Advice

The solution is simple, fast to set up, and brilliant for its use.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
