I would rate it a ten out of ten. I'm very happy with the solution.

On a scale from 1 to 10, I would rate this product a 7. For us, the license is a big issue and we need to get better facilities, i.e. the original problem. From any country, it's not easy to manage a product remotely across the world. We are supporting little companies and compatibilities for three countries with different languages. It's not easy to deal with because the provider we use doesn't deliver to our country, even Israel. It's a problem we encounter more than the physical system. It's complicated. The one question we get about the system in Switzerland is that when we send it to the target countries, it's not good. We need a solution that merges both to be able to access the system and theoretically to target businesses. We don't have this possibility

As advice, I would say that you should look first through the community and see the different issues that people are running up against, so you're aware of what's going on. Meraki is very easy to configure. So if you want an easy to configure firewall, I think Meraki is a good solution for you. I would rate this solution between an eight and nine out of ten. The product still needs work and the features could be better.

In terms of advice, I would say you should really prepare for open source because you have more control. For us here, we are well trained in firewalling as we have access to open source software and we are good at it. Open source gets rid of all the licensing issues. Meraki is a good solution, but it's not the best solution out there. I would rate this solution a five out of ten.

For this solution, Meraki is still more expensive than FortiGate. The FortiGate license is still less than the Meraki license. On a scale from 1 to 10, I would rate Meraki MX firewalls a 7. If they were to add the configuration tools, then it would be much higher.

I recommend anyone look towards the possibilities of firewalls of this caliber with Meraki. Research the top firewalls to compare, depending on how many users and the purpose of the need. It is great to have a firewall like Meraki or FortiGate. On a scale from one to ten, I would rate Meraki an eight or nine.

I would give this solution about an eight out of ten. They can buy the brand directly or from a partner. They need to consider performance. I have to be totally honest about Meraki. Because of the client VPN, the lack of an easy way to implement templates with Meraki, that's really only enough for an eight.

I would rate this solution nine out of 10. As a solution, there is no need for improvement, it's a good solution.

I was very worried when Cisco purchased Meraki, but surprisingly, they have not changed the organization or product lines for the worse.
