    Likelihood to Recommend

    Cisco Secure Access by Duo

    Cisco Secure Access by Duo is recommended if you need to enable multifactor authentication with no major effort to implement it, understanding you have to pay a license per user. It's important to mention that what you are paying gives you a lot of possibilities to enable SSO on your applications, even legacy systems., there is no need to pay extra for it. If you are looking for free or cheap software, Cisco Secure Access by Duo is not an option.

    Zoom

    In the new area of pandemic-era meetings online, I really like the opportunity that Zoom provides to have a meeting space. The audio and video quality is typically good, with problems usually being blamed on the bandwidth of the service provider. The recordings are great to be able to use once they have been processed. In fact, if there was one thing I would improve about recordings, it would be the amount of time it takes to render the video ready for output and sharing.

    Pros

    Cisco Secure Access by Duo

    • It integrates very well with multiple products such as M365 and VMware
    • It allows for multiple security options including hardware tokens and a phone app
    • If users are locked out for whatever reason, it's easy to get them up and running again with the Duo admin dashboard
    James Heiney | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Zoom

    • The ease of hosting & joining meetings with a simple URL.
    • The ability to screen-share and share control of screens seamlessly makes collaboration even better.
    • Participants limit in a zoom meeting is way better than other collaboration tools.
    • Ability to restrict unwanted users from joining the meeting even with the meeting password.
    Sameera Srivastava | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Cisco Secure Access by Duo

    • An extra step to configure when setting up with things like O365 products whereas the native client would have been easier.
    • At the time of implementation it did not integrate with the rest of the cisco security suite.
    • Documentation was light or lacking for any lesser known products.
    • Had to configure ManageEngine as a "generic app" when doing SSO. Really need to build out the prebuilt app's base quicker for us lazy IT people.
    Ryan Lee | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Zoom

    • Sharing zoom complete information is not visible on the screen, and also a bit is confusing minimizing and maximizing.
    • Every time someone enters the chat, a chat box appears on my screen, and some features are missing from this version.
    • Automatic conference connection based on a schedule isn't an option, and neither is enhanced security measures.

    We're sticking with Zoom for the foreseeable future--given its compelling feature set, ease of use, and advanced technology, there's just no other competition to be excited about. Plus it's a Gartner-recognized industry leader, so it's a rather easy choice.

    Like all Cisco products, it can be a little difficult to configure and use properly. Once set up, it works like a charm, and we rarely have to reconfigure it or update it. We do wish it integrated better with our SonicWALL firewalls.

    Zoom has been very good in terms of usability as I have rarely had issues joining the meetings on desktop and it has always provided me with a stable audio and video and it makes it very easy for me to get through any meetings without much problem. I have found that it helps create a very friendly environment with my team through the creation of conferences and moderated chat rooms.

    There have been less than a handful of outages during our two years with Zoom, and whenever there was one, an email informing us of the outage went out immediately, and they had the issue resolved shortly thereafter.

    Zoom has among the best performance of any video conference platform, as I've mentioned several times. Besides that, their Chat platform works great, and their back end always runs smooth. It's unfortunate that reporting can now only be done by one month at a time, but nonetheless, it only takes a second to run any kind of Zoom report, whether it's an attendee report, Poll results, a user report, a list of meetings from the past month, etc.

    Most of my support has come from the pre-sales side, as I haven't done much with post-sales support. The engineer was helpful, though it would have been even better if he had more production experience. Hopefully the backing by Cisco will give Duo support the deep bench that one would expect out of Cisco.

    As I've written before, Zoom makes us feel like we matter and that we're a client rather than a customer. They want us to succeed and they put in the time to make sure that we do. I feel like they're more of a business partner rather than simply a vendor or supplier. They spent a lot of time onboarding with us, giving us demos, helping us get set up, and then giving us follow-up to be sure it's going well.

    If you receive any pushback from higher ups, point to any of the various positive reviews like this one. Or show Zoom's excellent Gartner report, or articles describing Zoom's partnership with Sequoia capital. It's not difficult to show how Zoom is a trustworthy industry leader with best-in-class technology.

    Alternatives Considered

    Cisco Secure Access by Duo

    I think that Duo is better than SecureAuth because the interface is better. I like the usability better and I like the design and functionality better. I wasn't involved in the selection process and initially didn't want to make the switch because I had heard some complaints about Duo but now that I have used it for a couple of years I would definitely say it is better than what I was using.
    Randy Palmer | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Zoom

    Zoom cannot be beaten for ubiquity - 100% of my clients and prospective clients are already familiar with Zoom. This is the #1 reason why I use Zoom. Additionally, Zoom integrates with AcuityScheduling, saving me a lot of time in creating meetings and adding them to the calendar. Zoom is disappointing in terms of video quality, interactivity features, and privacy. In cases where I need to use the recording of webinars for digital products, I will always use Crowdcast, and in cases where privacy is essential, I will use JitsiMeet.

    Overall I feel it is a fair price for what you pay for and the time constraints are not an issue at all. Zoom allows users to be on there for hours and hours and also you can launch as many meetings as you want. Overall I am very happy with using Zoom for our business.

    Because the Basic licenses are completely free, and because it's very easy to configure and install Zoom, and because anyone can join Zoom from a link without needing an account, scaling is a Breeze. There are absolutely no roadblocks. My company keeps adding more Zoom Pro license every week since it's so in demand. We were able to convert users from several different platforms onto Zoom with no trouble at all.

    Zoom is an all-around, robust, and equipped tool that serves a huge requirement for communicating and running business processes very effectively. The calendar integration is very helpful in notifying the team members [of] any meeting upcoming and is also apt for mobile use in special cases as well. The phone call feature is also very standout. Minimum bugs and ease of use make it the first choice for any company.

    Return on Investment

    Cisco Secure Access by Duo

    • Duo Security has been a positive ROI in that it has prevented unwarranted access to confidential information.
    • Duo Security has been a positive ROI in that it keeps me informed of what's going on with my devices.
    • Duo Security has been a negative ROI in that it costs money that I'm not sure is well spent all of the time.
    Thomas Young | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Zoom

    • It enables me to send and receive messages from my team members during video calls, handling online presentations.
    • With the ability to quickly stop, mute, and even receive notifications when someone enters or exits the meeting room, I'm never obligated to show up while making a call.
    • It is possible to record online meetings for future reference and more effective customer service. As we dealt with a lockdown, Zoom helped our business run smoothly.
