It is best suited for larger companies with lots of remote workers that need complex access management. We've barely scratched the surface on what Appgate can do via its API.

I've never run into issues using Meraki on customers or sites that are simple or focus on cloud-based apps. Sites that have a lot of on-prem or are more complex appear to max the feature set that Meraki offers. Nothing is more frustrating than working with Cisco Meraki at a bank or customer that has compliance to manage.

Cons
Appgate
  • Live logging in the client. Currently you have to "download" the logs into a zip file and then open that zipfile to look at the logs. There's no logfile to tail or watch.
  • Load balancing between controllers could be better. Currently relies on round robin DNS and sometimes a browser will pick a different IP than previous and you'll get a big "LOST CONNECTION TO CONTROLLER" message.

The company has been supportive overall of our needs and desired features. I have not personally called the support services, but I've heard no direct complaints either.

The existing system was FortiGate. The management of the system was a hassle. Because IT personnel had to manually create VPN accounts, user passwords were known to who created them and the end user did not have a way to change them. This created a security issue in the event an IT engineer left the company.

Scalability

This question is hard. A chain of retail or gas stations hypothetically that have simple networks in nature would flourish and scale quite well with Meraki. A chain of banks or something more complex that has more complex requirements doesn't scale very well or at least presents many caveats. Routing has always been a big setup with Meraki but I've always managed to 'get by'.

  • vMX is cheaper than Azure VPN gateway
  • there is no native support for HA, so you need to deploy second instance
