Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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 scalability is quite good.""I haven't had any trouble, and practically forget that I'm using it."

More Cato Networks Pros »

"DHCP is a basic service, and they've been doing it for years, so it's mature and stable.""Infoblox offers granularity and advanced DNS protection to mitigate DNS attacks. It's a very secure solution.""The security of the solution is perfect. It's very good at protecting us from attacks."

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.""Cato Networks security could be better."

More Cato Networks Cons »

"The solution is expensive.""There needs to be more capabilities in order to configure the console itself instead of the user interface dashboard. Configuring the DNS or DHCP through the console instead of the GUI dashboard would be better.""There should be better alerts for when attacks are happening."

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."
