Anonymous UserSenior Specialist: Concept Development at a computer software company
BrunoSTOFFELGlobal Knowledge Based Engineering Manager at Tenneco Inc.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"We don't need to connect anymore. It is automatically connected when you log on in Windows."
"The ZPA is a unique feature which offers VPN along with all the additional security needed."
"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."
"SCMP support would be one of the biggest improvements in my opinion. More speed improvements are also required."
"It's an expensive solution."
"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."
"We pay for an annual subscription. Additionally to the subscription, we thought in order to connect this solution to the Active Directory we had to purchase a Cisco ACS, Access Control System. It turns out we did not actually need it."
As mobile workers roam to different locations, an always-on intelligent VPN helps AnyConnect client devices to automatically select the optimal network access point and adapt its tunneling protocol to the most efficient method. This may include voice over IP (VoIP) traffic, TCP-based application access, or Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) protocol for latency-sensitive traffic.
Zscaler Private Access delivers policy-based, secure access to private applications and assets without the cost, hassle, or security risks of a VPN. Using the Zscaler App, users can now get all of the benefits of Zscaler’s Cloud Security Platform for Internet traffic, as well as granular, policy-based access to internal resources from a single point.
