More Cradlepoint NetCloud Pros »

"Our organization finds the application routing features extremely useful.""Overall, it's nice and very user friendly. That's what makes it so successful. They give you complicated features but with a very simple user interface, and that's been a big success for them.""The most valuable aspects of the solution are the next-generation firewall features and geo-blocking capabilities.""Their dashboard is also a good point for us and the customer. The solution is very clean and easy.""There are great security and ops features without the need for having a different box for security.""It is very easy to deploy. The GUI interface is really good, and the security features are also very good. It is also stable and scalable, and their support is also good.""The division of Control Plane and Data Plane is most valuable. It can be deployed anywhere, and you can control it and configure it from anywhere. This is one of the good features of this solution."

Cons
"In our situation, the initial setup was complex."

More Cradlepoint NetCloud Cons »

"The UTM features can be improved. It should offer better functionality.""We are thinking about how to make customers consolidate the loads to an SD-WAN network so that the customers can have bigger chunk from the SD-WAN side so that customers can have critical data be transferred with NPS VPN and non-critical data or some labeled traffic can be transferred by the SD-WAN network. I think it's a very important direction for digital transformation.""The support needs to be improved.""The smaller units lack a lot of functionality.""Another thing that should be improved in Versa are their firewall features.""With the pandemic and changing work models, it would be ideal if the product more accessibility options or more diversity within the solution itself.""SASE is the next big thing that is coming up, and it needs to be developed in Versa. This is the only thing that needs to be adapted very quickly by Versa. With the pandemic going on, I would like to see more features for working from home. They have launched Versa Secure Access (VSA), but it is currently immature. They need to tighten it up for work from home and SD-WAN concept.""I heard about them for the first time just before I started working on Versa. They do have blogs for information, but they could publicize more about the documentation and architecture. It doesn't seem to have that much exposure, and they should work on their customer base more."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Cradlepoint's prices are on par with similar solutions."

More Cradlepoint NetCloud Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The price is expensive but it makes sense for the market.""It is not very expensive because of the white box support. Its hardware is much cheaper than other products. With the support for x86 and white box, it is one of the most cost-effective platforms that are currently available."
