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.

Usability

Cisco Meraki MX Firewalls10.0
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

Alternatives Considered

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

  • consistent performance has helped keep our network up and working so all our employees can stay hard at work.
  • The URL filtering has helped cut out employees slacking by blocking distracting sites.
