Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"It has reduced the number of people on the network team along with the system engineer involved in the security process. So, it is valuable."
"From a distributed firewall perspective, it's a solid solution."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to create, develop, and deploy servers in minutes to hours, rather than days."
"The most valuable features for us at this early stage are the interface and the integration with existing VMware solutions."
"The most valuable features are security and dynamic routing."
"This is the most scalable product of its type."
"From a security standpoint, the customer was able to better secure critical workloads while routing L2/L3 worked normally, giving them more confidence that they would be ready for any potential security incident mitigation or outage (DR)."
"The most valuable features are stability and low cost."
"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."
"We would to have a reverse proxy. This would add great value to the solution."
"We would like better integration with the standards on the market. For example, with OSPF, their integration in NSX is very low. It's not a full OSPF integration. It is too thin from a protocol perspective."
"It could be cheaper!"
"Everybody needs a network to connect to, and VMware doesn't readily provide one."
"I would like to see automation capabilities in the deployment process."
"The training costs a minimum of $3,000, which is expensive and should be reduced."
"Traffic flow introspection topology visibility is definitely needed because at the moment, NSX-T lacks in this area."
"There are always issues integrating with Cisco."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"The price is expensive but it makes sense for the market."
"We can't go without NSX, so it's invaluable from this perspective."
"The solution is very expensive."
"The licensing fees are expensive and we pay on a yearly basis."
"It is an expensive product, but cheaper than some competing solutions."
