Point-to-point VPNs can dynamically follow IP changes with no need for static IPs.Dual WAN connections are greatly simplified and point-to-point VPNs automatically connect regardless of what WAN connection is active.It prevents us from being hacked and delivers information about who and where the attack came from.Managed centrally over the web: You can manages all your Meraki devices in a single account.Site to Site VPN: The device can establish a VPN connection to multiple sites in a mesh environment in seconds, and without complex VPN knowledge.Traffic Shaping: The device lets you decide how you want to use your internet services. Due to the fact that Meraki can accept dual WAN, you can decide the way you balance the data traffic.Intrusion detection and prevention (IDS/IPS): The best feature. It can detect malware, even a virus, and warn you by email about the device that has it. When the Meraki detects that something is wrong, it automatically blocks the connection or the intrusion, delivering a graphic report with all the necessary content.We switched to Meraki because it lets you see what's happening in your LAN and WAN in a graphic and web environment.

Cons
It would be good if Junos had "unique commands" between all hierarchical levels, discarding the use of the "Run" command.

Meraki tech support staff have a lot more visibility into your network than you do, which is frustrating at times. I understand the approach is to keep the dashboard easier to understand. This will frustrate more advanced users at times.​It would be great if the Meraki devices let us see, in real time, the internet demand on a single device.The only stability issue is in Content Filtering. Sometimes we need to report these types of issues to Cisco support.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Pricing is very good, not expensive.

​Other content filtering solutions that I have used had more bells and whistles, but given the cost, complexity, and management overhead, I am very pleased with Meraki’s solution.It is more expensive than other solutions, but it is a cloud-managed network solution and support is given at the moment you call. That give a very big plus.The Meraki UTM is excellent when you buy the Advanced Security license. If you buy a different license you lost all the valuable functions.It can always improve pricewise regarding throughput.
