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