Cisco Meraki MX Firewalls

On many, many occasions, we have had to deploy the Meraki firewall on-the-fly to replace a burnt out competitor's firewall. It has absolutely been a lifesaver. We are able to fully program it without even having received the device, and when configuring remote locations, we don't even need it to hit our offices first.

Based on 1 answer
The Cisco Meraki MX series is very easy to use. Setting up user VPN access, site to site VPN to tie multiple locations together and managing all your devices. You can even download the latest firmware and install without ever leaving the dashboard. Meraki is the very definition of easy to use

I've worked for companies that have used other firewalls, however, this is the first company I've been in charge of one. I've previously only been in charge for web proxy servers. The Meraki MX Firewall has a content filter you can use which is better than the ones I've used before.

Return on Investment

  • Filled a critical business need to protect home grown websites.
  • Integrated well with SIEM.

  • It lowered our malware infections first with the basic license but almost non-existent with the Advanced Security. Less time dealing with cleaning up machines and more time to solve other IT issues.
  • Saved us a lot of money from paying outside vendors or specialized staff to manage our firewall.
  • Saves time. Changes take seconds instead of minutes or hours with traditional command line operations. Frees up time to focus on other things.
  • Increased security. Most mid to small range businesses just hope that their firewall is doing what it is supposed too but with the Meraki line you can know in seconds.
