Meraki MX Firewalls Review

Has good automatic firmware updates and the Active Directory authenticates VPN users


What is most valuable?

I like the automatic firmware updates. We use the Active Directory to authenticate VPN users. 

What needs improvement?

Expensive licensing and firewall stops immediately working if the licence is not renewed at the expiration date.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Meraki for four years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's very stable. I haven't had any issues with the stability. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I have not used the scalable features at all. We have around ten users using this solution at the moment. We don't have plans to increase the usage, all business is exhausted. 

It doesn't require staff to maintain it. It's up and running. Tops it requires is one staff checking on it once a month. 

How are customer service and technical support?

Their technical support has been great. 

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We did previously use a different solution. We switched because that solution wasn't stable. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward. The deployment took around four hours. 

What about the implementation team?

I deployed it myself. 

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I did evaluate other solutions but once I found Meraki, I wanted to give it a try. 

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it a ten out of ten. I'm very happy with the solution.
