Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"I like the ability to share the connections or simply to be able to pass the credentials for a connection to other colleagues without bothering too much about the connection being tracked or about security, because each and every user will require a secret password, so I don't really care about sending the details. It's very secure.""I like that it is really easy to use, it's a simple product. It can connect remotely with a secure network.""I like how I don't need to see the solution or start it up. I just use my computer and have it working in the background. I start my laptop and it's there and working. That's the most important feature.""It's easy to handle. You can have it on Windows, Linux or Mac, that's quite useful.""It is easy to handle, you can have it on Windows, Mac, and Linux.""This solution is stable. There have been no technical issues.""The most valuable feature is the connection feature.""The solution is very easy to use and set up."

Cons
"If they could simplify connections via other machines, like Linux or Mac OS X, it would be helpful.""The logout should be automized and it should have a reminder that you have logged in into a private network.""The hotspots give me connectivity issues occasionally. It could be easier to use if it allowed me to choose the hotspot.""Every two weeks there was a new version to install which was annoying for the users.""It would be useful to have an automatic install process where if you connect and you don't have the latest version, it should be automatically done.""I have been working with the same interface for the last ten years. I would say that it needs some improvements made.""There are situations where the connection drops, and you may not even be aware of it until you try to do something critical.""Behavior analytics and other newer technologies should be integrated into the solution."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Sometimes there is a problem with the number of licenses for the end-user. The number of concurrent users is limited due to a valid license.""The pricing depends on the requirement, so proper planning and an RF analysis help to properly size the solution and get the best pricing.""The licensing costs are reasonable."
