Cradlepoint NetCloud (formerly Pertino)

The platform and product selection as a whole covers a lot of range. The pricing is low enough and the levels granular enough that even customers that only need the use of a few features of the product can buy into the ecosystem with reasonable investment and grow with confidence without having paid too much. One thing that this enterprise company gets is this: Many small companies need enterprise-class features but don't have the user count to justify purchasing enterprise-class solutions. It is not that they don't need advanced features, it's just that enterprise vendors assume that small companies only have basic needs. It is not true, but you can't buy a solution that is only sold in hundreds of seats if you have 25 users in your company.Cradlepoint NetCloud does a good job of getting this right. You can buy a single seat or hundreds of seats, and the price is truly commensurate with your seat count. Everyone gets the enterprise features, you only pay for the seats you need.

IBM Cloud Internet Services

IBM Cloud Internet Services is the best solution to provide security for your applications if you plan to integrate your applications with IBM Watson Services such as the Natural Language Classifier, Text-to-Speech, Speech-to-Text, Watson Assistant etc. These services are very easy to integrate and manage through IBM Cloud, and in turn, have out-of-the-box configurations for security provided by IBM Cloud Internet Services. It is not the best security solution to use if your applications are running on other cloud infrastructure providers' platforms

Cons

Cradlepoint NetCloud (formerly Pertino)

  • Cradlepoint NetCloud virtual backplane bandwidth is improving but could limit some very large enterprise customers without creative network segmentation.
  • Further improvements to simplify NetCloud Manager use would be appreciated.
  • User license management and compliance tools need to be clarified and simplified.

IBM Cloud Internet Services

  • Request proxying is done by way of DNS name resolution, which is inflexible.
  • Proxy services do not work on wildcard DNS entries.

Based on 1 answer
Every time I have engaged support, it has been a satisfying experience. Because they cover such a wide range of applications, I do have to spend more time explaining our intended results and rationale than I would have to do with a more focused vendor, but it's a minor tradeoff for the value of saved time in every other aspect of the solution.

I am not aware of another "always on" VPN product. I know 5 years ago the product was an innovation to the market space and I helped beta test it before it was fully released

IBM Cloud Internet Services

IBM Cloud Internet Services edged out Cisco solutions in terms of quality of user experience and need to have flexibility in parameterizing the solution in global organization. Amazon cloud solutions are comparable to IBM solutions.
