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

Pros
"We use this solution for MDM.""It's a very easy solution for the most part, it's very easy to implement and very easy to administer.""It's extremely competitive and very good for a product in this sphere.""We experience no downtime, no breakdowns, all the user readings are exact, and it gives us quick analysis so we can apply security measures.""The stability of the solution is very good. It's reliable. We don't have crashes or experience freezing. There aren't bugs or glitches."

"The main control page and the ability to manage all our users from a web-based portal are the most valuable aspects of the solution. That's particularly useful because we're a heterogeneous network.""The Cloud Identity is well advanced in terms of features, applications, and the components that it is offering.""Although we have not looked at the whole product and explored it completely, we find that all the authentication features that we are using now are valuable.""The most valuable feature is the performance.""The most valuable feature is that you can manage users from one central location.""I think the first thing that is great is that it gives you a lot of features, like login, and then vaulted passwords and secure LDAP. It becomes easier for the end customer to leverage all those features without going to a higher SKU of G Suite."

Cons
"It doesn't seem to be able to establish some VPN tunnels with other devices in a particular way that such as an ASA can do for us.""Because Cisco has improved a lot and is competing with other technologies that are innovative and brand new to the market, the only improvements they have to make are to keep up with the current competition and remain competitive with other solutions.""We've really only experimented with their iOS client. This is due to the fact that their Windows client has a lot to be desired. We first tried experimenting with the Windows one but very quickly determined that it wasn't going to cut it for most Windows cases. The Windows portion of this product needs improvement. I'd say that it's not really viable."

"The solution needs to better integrate with Mac's OS.""The interface could be improved by simplifying it further.""To improve the product, the integration with third-party products could always be smoother.""The pricing for this solution is a little bit higher than AWS and others, which is something that should be improved.""In the next release, I would like to see integration with different systems, mainly wireless SIEMS and other analytical systems that we want to introduce.""They are going ahead and adding a few more things to the Google Cloud premium edition. Their stock management and remote computer management can be improved."
