Excellent integration capabilities, good UI and offers great security features

What is our primary use case?

We mostly implement this product for our clients.

Pros and Cons

  • "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 support needs to be improved."

What other advice do I have?

We have a lifetime implementation. We're using the latest version of the solution. It's a good product for high-end and large enterprises, but smaller enterprises might not be a good fit. I'd just advise that especially surrounding the initial setup, a new company needs to ensure they have the right support in place. Companies need to make sure their SLA's are very clear so they can get the support they need from the outset and into the future. Compare companies and be clear about the requirements and you will have an easier time. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. I'd give it full marks…

Straightforward with excellent next-generation firewall features and geo-blocking capabilities.

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for multi-link aggregated circuits that are co-managed with our provider.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable aspects of the solution are the next-generation firewall features and geo-blocking capabilities."
  • "The smaller units lack a lot of functionality."

What other advice do I have?

We're just a customer. We aren't a consultant or reseller.We have a couple of different models. We have the smaller models and the medium-sized models, however, I'm unsure of the exact model numbers. New users should be aware of sizing. Making sure that the size is correct is important. There are small, medium, and large units, however, the smaller units only support certain functionality. In saying that, they seem to have some issues with some of the functionality on the small units not working. It's best to get a medium-sized unit to get some of the next-generation firewall stuff. I'd rate…

Very user-friendly and nimble software platform solution

What is our primary use case?

We are using this product and also implementing it for our clients. We manage everything for the customer. We use it here on our platform and also manage the solution for our customers for whom we install it. Let's say a customer is on premises and he wants to move to the internet but wants to keep the interconnection between their sites. He doesn't want to remain embedded. We would propose Versa in this case. Also, if a client asks us for more reporting, more analytics and more monitoring and our embedded solution can't do this as a single solution because it would be very heavy and… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "Their dashboard is also a good point for us and the customer. The solution is very clean and easy."
  • "Another thing that should be improved in Versa are their firewall features."

What other advice do I have?

We always propose only Versa solutions in our quotes for our customers when we have a new project. I only recommend Versa. VeloCloud was the first one to market and for customers that is very important. Customers ask me for a comparison between VeloCloud and Versa since VeloCloud was the first one on the market and he wants to be sure that if he goes with Versa it will not be a mistake. For me it's not enough just to be first on the market. I know Versa, but I know it's not enough. VeloCloud solutions are more public for companies and buyers than Versa is. These are the only two products that…
