"It's a stable solution."
"It is very simple to use, and it allows me to get into the university's network from my home, which is very useful for me."
"It is a product that is very robust and durable."
"I can safely say this is one of the best solutions I have seen for VPN access. It can achieve what other vendors may not be able to. This product will train you about exactly what an SSL should be. You can leverage it to do whatever you wish, the way you wish to do it. This is the solution if you want a perfectly scalable product for your enterprise that can help your mobile users and integrate with the latest technologies."
"The most valuable feature is being able to securely connect and use virtual desktops."
"It is customer-friendly. It is quite easy for our users to connect. There is also the flexibility of the features."
"The administration should be improved."
"The pricing is a stumbling block to scaling our utilization of Cisco products and we would prefer to use more of them."
"The system needs to be upgraded to replace the Token Authentication software, which will no longer be supported."
"When many people are using the internet at home, which is usually right after dinner, this type of service is a little bit hard to use. The internet becomes quite slow, and sometimes, I have to stop using this application. I am not sure if this issue is because of the application or my internet provider."
"It would be nice if we could use this not just on mobile, but on laptops and desktops as well."
"Zero test FDP (Fraud Protection and Prevention) should be improved."
"This solution normally works but at times, we have had trouble with connectivity."
"We want to switch to another solution because there are some challenges with the support from Pulse. The quality of documentation is also not good. It is sometimes very hard to find documentation that provides a solution and describes how all this works."
"There are no pricing programs for non-profit organizations and the product is otherwise expensive by comparison."
"The cost of the product is high, but worth it because of the utility and great product support."
