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

"The SpeedFusion feature is the most valuable.""The SpeedFusion feature is good. It allowed us to move away from IPsec between the sites. It is also a really easy product to deploy."

More Peplink SpeedFusion Pros »

"The management and the dashboard are the solution's most valuable features.""I am very satisfied with the technical support.""I like the load balancing capability.""Secure Mobile Access (SMA) is easy to configure and the deployment is straightforward. However, this is mostly because of the AWS setup.""I think they ask for a fair price."

More SonicWall SMA Pros »

"Their hardware support isn't the greatest. We've had one unit go down, and it took a while for them to replace it. It was in the Caribbeans, so it might be a location-related issue.""Its pricing is the main issue. The pricing could be improved. I would like to see an outbound policy based on the application. It is a very good feature, and most of the customers are looking for that. They can also include stronger firewall features. This would help the customers in choosing this product as the only device for the SD network."

More Peplink SpeedFusion Cons »

"The solution could integrate better with other platforms.""The timed synchronization between the network appliance needs improvement.""The solution has 2FA, it will generate a token and send it to an email, but multifactor authentication is not available. I would suggest that there should be MFA integration and provided with the appliance.""User interface could be improved.""The problem is that when combined with what the client already has, there are two different logins and two different management systems, and these should be consolidated into a single interface."
