Meraki MX Firewalls solutions are very customized for our groups. We are a worldwide group. We are currently implementing an IT solution worldwide. We have to replace old firewalls in the next couple of years in many countries. We are working on this project. We used Meraki MX 55005 firewalls previously. In between, we used many different firewalls from other companies. We won't be doing the acquisition of many new parts by these companies now. We have tested different brands of firewalls. We have to consolidate to handle a better solution. We chose Meraki because we are already familiar with the products. Meraki MX firewalls are one point, but also have good availability. We have many people from different countries in which we have Cisco contracts to serve. It's not only a technical aspect but also a commercial reason for our choice of Meraki.

We use Meraki MX firewalls with Cisco. Some features must go through Cisco to implement. What the application needs is not included in Meraki. I use Cisco to access a portal and they provide the features. Then we implement it in Meraki.

We made a big change recently in the company. The company didn't have a firewall. We suggested putting Meraki products in the company.

Our primary use is perhaps a little unusual. Many of our clients like the product, or want to consider the product, and we own it so that we can do valid product comparison and testing.

Security appliance/firewall and SD-WAN. With an advanced security license, the content filtering, IDS, and geographical blocking features are surprisingly good compared to using alternative solutions with no noticeable performance hit. The geographical blocking is a great security feature but you have to use with planning. I’ve managed to block a few vendors websites and mail servers without realizing what country those vendors were located in. When you’re not use to having geographical blocking the first time I had the problem it took a while to troubleshoot why the connectivity was missing. Sorta over secured myself. Not the MX’s fault.
