Bigleaf is great for getting good performance out of two mediocre ISPs. Bigleaf is great for getting the combined bandwidth of two or more ISPs without having to subscribe to higher tiers with the ISP. I can't imagine Bigleaf would do much good for a business with only one ISP. Reporting with Bigleaf is helpful in documenting any issues with an ISP - I can show an ISP performance history if we experience a problem.

Any organization with a robust IT support network and with 100+ users, all the way up to international conglomerates with millions of workers. The only situation I can see where it might be harder is if you have a very small business with limited technical know-how. Otherwise, it's honestly the no-brainer choice.

Pros
Bigleaf Networks
  • Does not add a security layer - We have our own security layer and did not want an additional one.
  • Combines bandwidth from multiple ISPs to provide a bigger pipe.

Any time we've had a problem, Bigleaf support has been readily available in English. Support seems competent, and when one hardware device failed we were quickly provided with a replacement

Bigleaf doesn't add a security layer. Competitors we looked at all bundled in security from Cisco or Fortinet, and we didn't want to learn another product and have a competing security layer. With Bigleaf we are able to leverage our existing security solution.

After a lengthy vendor selection process we determined that CloudBridge was the best solution—although as always with demos it was difficult to tell if we'd really made the right decision. Since selecting CloudBridge—hough I have had lots of input from colleagues who use other systems—I feel very happy with our choice. The feature set alone is just far superior.

  • Tremendous savings from high uptime percent.
  • Keeping our remote users engaged and stable at work means we can hire anywhere on earth.
  • Access control keeps our IT team from constantly being tied up with password resets.
