Easy to deploy, easy to manage, and helpful for network stability and reliability

What is our primary use case?

It is a primary router for the network. It is a cloud solution with on-prem routers. Basically, we got a router here, and we utilize our network connections to get to Cato Network's cloud. We route our traffic through their cloud for security and everything else.

Pros and Cons

  • "The WAN aggregation feature is the most valuable."
  • "Its functionality is a bit limited in some areas as compared to a Cisco solution. It is not as granular. It doesn't have the manageability, feature set, and capabilities of a larger or an enterprise-level solution. It just needs a more robust feature set and granularity."

What other advice do I have?

It is worth looking at for a small to medium size environment, but it has got to fit your situation. We don't use it for what it was really made to do. It just has one feature that affects us, so we use it for that. In all honesty, it is not something that we are really using to its full potential. I would rate Cato Networks an eight out of ten. It is fairly new, so there are some things that it should do, and they're working on it.

The best solution that meets our security needs and is very stable, scalable, and easy to use

What is our primary use case?

We are using it for perimeter protection.

Pros and Cons

  • "It meets our security needs very well. It is easy to use, and documentation is also available. It is also very stable and scalable, and its support is also very good. We are satisfied with this solution."
  • "Its documentation must be in French because we are a French-speaking country. They should also provide more training documentation. Its management interface should also be improved. They should also improve its update period. If I compare its update period with other products such as Palo Alto firewalls, this solution is really slow in updates."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution. Duo Security is the best solution for the cybersecurity challenges that we are facing nowadays. I would rate Duo Security a ten out of ten.

Has good networking and is faster than other platforms but it needs better troubleshooting features

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the networking. I didn't have a good experience with the networking that Sophos has."
  • "I would like for them to improve the troubleshooting features. We have some problems with traffic and I can't identify where the problem is coming from. I have to open a ticket with support until it gets resolved. Microsoft doesn't offer enough tools to resolve the issue."

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it a seven out of ten. It's simple to deploy, it's faster than other platforms, and it's scalable which is an important advantage. In the next release, I would like to see more troubleshooting tools. I would also like to see the connection to remain consistent.
