What is most valuable?

Live monitoring of what is happening inside and with the interfaces, either ingress or egress - this is a good feature of the device. Secondly, most people use enterprise applications remotely, and… more»

How has it helped my organization?

I'm a network and cyber security consultant. This is not only for my offices, I have deployed it for many large enterprises where customers are remotely accessing their applications. We can define… more»

What needs improvement?

It's a little bit complex in terms of handling. If you implement a change, there is a specific point where you have to commit it. It's not like you just push a button and it's always committed. If you… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Pricing and licensing are fine. It's worth the value because if I buy any other product, every four years I have to replace my hardware. But with Barracuda I get a free hardware upgrade. Today I'm… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I have used Cisco, Fortinet, Check Point, Palo Alto, Sophos Cyberoam, Dell SonicWall, and Juniper (both SRX and NetScreen). One of the reasons I switched to Barracuda is that I was looking for… more»

What other advice do I have?

When I initially started using it I was just an end-user, a technical consultant. And one of my customers said to me, "I want these and these features." I searched a number of products with respect to… more»

What is most valuable?

The filtering was very good.

What needs improvement?

The licensing could be improved. It restricted us to maybe 55 connections per license, so anything less than 55 VPN connections. But when you grow and have 100 clients coming in, you have to upgrade. I'd prefer to get something which is a… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I started with 46 users, and clients were growing to 59 and heading on to 60. That's when I suffered limitations with their licensing. We had to go back and forth with the supplier in this area. It didn't work out well for me or the… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We were using Cyberoam, and then we changed to Sophos. We had an appliance for Sophos, and then because we were moving to a bigger setup, we moved to Check Point. We've since moved to FortiGate. That's the solution we have now.

What other advice do I have?

We've actually stopped using it. We switched to FortiGate because we had side to side VPNs that were are actually bringing issues with the UTM itself, so we had to swap it over. I would rate the overall solution a six out of 10. There's… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the cloud solution because it is configurable from anywhere. It is very user-friendly and not hard to learn.

How has it helped my organization?

The security level of our organization has changed by using Meraki MX Firewalls. We didn't have the UTM before but now we have sandboxing, tray scanning, attack preventions, and monitorization. Our… more»

What needs improvement?

We feel that Cisco provides smaller features with fewer possibilities versus other solutions out there.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Our users find the entire package quite expensive. The price of the application itself is not expensive but if you take a license, it costs more than the application itself. If you get it for five… more»

What other advice do I have?

It is a good fit for our business needs and our client needs.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at Sophos products and there is something to be said about their ability to build a price out of what your user wants. This is not an option with Meraki.
