We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature is that it also works as a next-gen firewall because it has security features."
"The feature that I find to be the most valuable is the bandwidth aggregation."
"It's a cloud-based solution that integrates well with everything."
"The WAN aggregation feature is the most valuable."
"It's a pretty straightforward solution."
"The app provides ready-made services that we can talk to without issue."
"There is a lot of flexibility and a lot of control if you use this efficiently."
"There is a certain accessibility feature that I can set using a cloud identity, which is really valuable to us."
"We do not need to maintain the hardware."
"It is totally awesome in terms of scalability. Its scalability was the main reason for moving to Google Cloud. It also comes with a lot of features. We are satisfied with the features it has."
"The solution is very easy to use. It's easy to navigate and to work with."
"They should add more sophisticated security features. It should also be integrated into the cloud."
"They can't do one-to-one NAT (Network Address Translation) in AP (their access point), and that is something that Palo Alto can do."
"I would like to see better integration with identity providers."
"Its functionality is a bit limited in some areas as compared to a Cisco solution. It is not as granular. It doesn't have the manageability, feature set, and capabilities of a larger or an enterprise-level solution. It just needs a more robust feature set and granularity."
"The price could be better."
"The initial setup was quite complex."
"The setup could be more user-friendly."
"the documentation could be a bit better in terms of what is presented on the screen versus what actually happens."
"I think this product needs to shift the focus from our software, our solution, like social media analytics to our customers; not maintenance in the hardware."
"We have some challenges related to purging the data. We get a lot of data on a daily basis that has to be refreshed on the site, but we are seeing some challenges with that. They can also include some third-party integration. We have one Akamai dependency. If they can come up with some API to talk to Akamai, it would be good."
"The solution could be more reasonably priced. We find it to be a bit expensive right now."
"The price is not an issue for us, as it is priced more competitively than some other vendors."
"If you compare with VeloCloud, the price is the same or even cheaper."
"You pay yearly based on the speed of your network. If you increase the speed of your network, you increase the cost for your throughput. It is by bandwidth for the most part and then licenses for VPN. There is some per-seat licensing for VPN access, but the majority of it is minimal. It is like $30 a year per client. The rest is based on how much bandwidth you'll use. You pay for that upfront for the year, and if you have to increase it, you increase it, and then they let you send more data through. There are no additional costs in addition to the standard licensing fees."
"Cato Networks seems more expensive than Cisco Meraki."
"I think that the cost is metered based on the data, but I don't have the details."
"Its price is good. For each server, we are saving $300 a month. We have at least thousands of servers. It is a huge cost reduction for us."
