Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"First and foremost, it enables the customer to deploy high availability connections. This kind of solution enables them to deploy these HA connections for policies mostly automatically. It's a more automated approach than with other vendors.""We had several clients that were paying $7,500 a month for an MPLS line for one single 10 megabit circuit and we were able to take that from $7,500 a month down to $500 a month for two 10 megabits circuits that added redundancy where before they did not have redundancy and it gave them a much better throughput.""The most valuable feature is the support for asymmetric lines."

"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."

Cons
"They have to implement more security with it. The security, mainly their firewall functions, have to be included in the firewall features.""Their WAN optimization in terms of wireless connectivity doesn't have a very good cellular capability.""The security can be improved, with the firewall for example, because they supply a basic one but not a UTM."

"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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"You typically will license the hardware and you license the software to access the hardware capabilities. The price will range anywhere from a hundred to $300 a month. There are no additional costs.""The licensing fees depend on the bandwidth. As an example of what we charge our customers, for 100MB without Boost, the price is approximately $2,000. That includes the licensing and the unit."
