Pros
"It gives you the ability to upgrade switches remotely, schedule the upgrade time, perform backups, and monitor the health of all networks.""The interfaces are a valuable feature.""Enables oversight in order to tweak and tune.""Cisco Prime is helpful as it provides us with real-time monitoring.

More Cisco Prime Pros »

"Its configuration and deployment are the most valuable.""The support organization behind this product is extremely professional.""What our customers like the most is that this device is so rugged. It has very good performance and throughput. Its console is very easy to use and has many features, which makes it different from its competitors. Cloud IQ has all the features built into the console, whereas other solutions require you to integrate multiple solutions with their consoles. You don't need to add anything extra with Cloud IQ. With this single solution, you can do almost everything."

Cons
"If you think about a centralized monitoring system, Cisco Prime is not good because it does not support third-party vendors like Palo Alto or FortiGate.""Lacking in integration with a SIEM tool.""The solution can be slow at times.""The overall management capabilities of Prime need to be improved.""The solution is not easy to configure."

More Cisco Prime Cons »

"They can improve just the onboarding process. More user information about the introduction to the product would be helpful. It would be good if they have a better user introduction to the new product because it is different than the prior version.""Having a wizard for customers who are just starting might be helpful.""Its price could be lower. It is a simplified solution, but it has price challenges. It is costly as compared to other solutions. It has almost everything. The only thing is that MAC is not possible on the cloud, and it has to be on-premises."
