Acalvio shadowplex is a program with the benefit of having a totally innovative new technology for the protection of the network its users, once this program is executed it will manifest an artificial intelligence that will allow it to detect and rule out all threats to my work, I I recommend it for the effectiveness it has given us for a long time.

When it comes to security on the edge of your network (downstream) Cisco's IOS security features provide pretty much everything you need when it comes to securing your network, network devices, and access. I would absolutely recommend Cisco switches due to many reasons, but a big reason is security.

Pros
Acalvio Technologies
  • One of the best things that I like about acalvio shadowplex is the most innovative solutions that it offers to have in our possession, there are few programs of this style that are capable of offering fully automated security.
  • This program increases the credibility of our work, this software protects one hundred percent of our most important information and the assets of my work and is not affected by any kind of virus on the web.

Cons
Acalvio Technologies
  • One of the negative points that we have found in this program is, by far, its cost and payment plans that it offers to each of its new users, the truth is that the rate seems somewhat high to us.
  • It should be mentioned that the weight and size of this program can be very high, this is a problem because it compromises the space on my system and with other equally important programs.

  • Cisco could provide an initial set up script for those are not used to the CLI (Command Line Interface). With that initial script, people could easily deploy the security features instead of having to learn how to use the commands.
  • The web interface that Cisco provides with the routers, although it’s useful to set up the security features, it could also have some sort of tutorials to help people understand the main concepts of iOS security.
  • You have to license iOS security separately from the main OS. For that reason, sometimes it tends to be a little expensive if you have a small business.

Cisco has the best Support team that gives us 24/7 support as we need. Cisco has huge detailed documentation for design, implementation, and troubleshooting all areas of the IOS security. There are many communities discussing all Cisco devices and solutions for studying groups and for customers to share their stories, technical problem and solutions.

I also like HP Procurve. It is my choice when the customer cannot afford Cisco. Cisco is better all round but HP is the only other [product] I will use if I have a choice.

Return on Investment
Acalvio Technologies
  • This program was designed to provide multiple autonomous solutions to each of its users immediately, in our case we are satisfied with the security that this program provides us every time we work.
  • We have the knowledge of working at least with different programs with the same shadowplex acalvio function, but none has been as effective as this one, since the level of technology allows it to be much more effective in ruling out any type of threat.

  • Cisco iOS security helped our business deploy a relatively safe solution for a small amount of money.
  • If you don’t have enough budget to invest in a robust and expensive firewall solution, you can safely use Cisco iOS security to protect your branch or remote office without compromise your network.
  • Because Cisco iOS security uses a simple command-line based interface, you can deploy standardized scripts and keep the operational costs low.
