It's best suited for small offices 10-25 users. Any more and its best to move away to a more higher tier. It will be less appropriate for a mid level company with a large staff. It's best for a small business with a limited budget and less strenuous security functionality.

      The features are good. The support is good. The resources to deploy, manage, and operate it are good. Customer's feedback and testimonials are good. The updates in terms of zero day vulnerabilities are good and timely. But, I still give an 8 out of 10 because I think the pricing, licensing, and GUI can be improved more.

      Alternatives Considered

      Cisco

      Cisco's power really stems from its brand reputation and honestly not much else. No one ever got fired for deploying Cisco, and that's why it stands out. The Cisco Small Business RV Series is no exception there; the unit is built well and does the job. However, much more powerful alternatives for routers are out there—the biggest competitor being Ubiquiti. The UniFi routers are significantly more powerful in all regards, including routing speed, IPS/IDS speeds, and VPN functionality. Support for those is admittedly rather lackluster though, so if your network is critical, you are effectively self-insuring your equipment. For some that may be fine, but for others, that risk of extended downtime is just not worth it.

      A huge positive side of using Cisco is that it is easy to understand. Apart from expanding our software application industry, this device made a huge impact through acquisition. Using Cisco, another point that stacks up against all other routers is that it is keeping up with current business trends. Traffic filtration is very simple with an access-list, which works very efficiently. Cisco comes out with the best routing engine among all the other router services. Cisco overcomes all of the issues that we are dealing with [when it comes to] other routing services.
