We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution is very scalable. It just depends on the number of licenses an organization has. The enterprise management console is related to the number of clients, and the client interface itself is free to download."
"I think the solution is highly scalable."
"The most valuable feature is that it's easy to deploy. Deployment, configuration, and troubleshooting are very easy."
"The configuration is the most valuable feature."
"It is very easy and useful. A normal user with basic information can easily connect to any environment."
"From an application perspective, this solution is stable."
"The solution's most valuable feature is its integration capabilities. The processing is fast and the reporting is also very good."
"The initial setup of this solution is easy."
"It allows us to work remotely."
"NetExtender works very well. I never had an issue with it, and it has been working well for me. In terms of management, you have good control over the destination. You can use NetExtender to set the policy and the static route for a client. You can modify it based on what your client needs or can access. You have good control over routing."
"The initial setup is pretty easy."
"Initially, the support was very poor. It is getting better, but they should continue to improve this."
"I would like to see an improvement in the web filter, because I think it can be more user-friendly."
"The price could also use improvement."
"The pricing could use improvement."
"Technical support is awful. Their online response time is not prompt. They should not respond after four or five days. Their support guys are not competent enough. Small issues are taking time."
"The memory check needs to be improved, giving better visibility into the run-time memory."
"The pricing of the solution should be less expensive."
"FortiClient is not communicating with the new version of the firewall."
"SonicWall can be difficult for some people, but I don't find it difficult. Some companies provide a VPN client for free, but you have to pay for NetExtender."
"There must be a multi-factor authentication enabled or integrated by default with it in order to be integrated with NetExtender."
"An annual license costs about 1.5 to 3,000 US dollars. There are no additional costs."
"The price is okay and competitive."
"Fortinet requires you to buy a lot of product in order for you to have proper protection."
"FortiClient is quite reasonably priced."
"The pricing is reasonable."
"The pricing is good because you get and end-to-end security solution in one package price."
"The cost per port is very less as compared to the other technologies."
"We are using the free version of this product."
"After a certain number of users, you require extra licensing."
"You have to pay for its license. There are some other companies that provide a VPN client for free. When you buy NetExtender, its license is available for one, three, or five years."
