Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros

More Cato Networks Pros »

"The most valuable features for us are NAT, ATS, server capabilities, VPN tunneling, and management.""When we started, the connection was amazing for the 100G between the switches and the co-switch. What the students typically use for school is a maximum is 40 so they now have faster technology.""The configuration syntax makes it easy for us to configure the device and perform troubleshooting when needed.""I have been able to connect the solution to many platforms such as Windows, Apple, and Android.""Overall we have found the solution to be satisfactory."

Cons
"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.""We would like the product to continue to improve its security."

"In the next release of this solution, I would like to see better bandwidth management, more granular web filtering, and portal authentication.""In my country we don't have Huawei technology, we only have Huawei routers for ISP. There is no agent for Huawei in Egypt.""Essentially, they need to open their licensing model such that when a customer buys a device, they have a full view of all of the available licenses for it.""We have found we have to restart the routers or reconfigured them a lot of the time, this issue should improve. The quality of the hardware needs to be more durable."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."
