Extreme Networks
Aerohive was ahead of the industry when it came to Wireless network hardware and software. Initially, they were one of the first to offer a solution for a busy office environment with a complicated layout and multiple rooms, open areas, and offices that were spread out. The mesh design of the APS was also one of the first of its kind and has proven to be a great solution within our environment.

It is simple to set up, manage, and incorporate, and its main selling point is that it performs consistently across a broad range of business contexts and infrastructural conditions. It had freed us from the unpleasant ruckus our former had brought about. We chose Forescout since it not only skillfully managed the problem but also entirely fixed our afflicted locations because we were completely helpless because we didn't know where the threat was originating from or which endpoints were polluted.

  • They should have more training for the versions of applications they update.
  • It would be great if the GUI would be more aesthetic in appearance.
  • Nothing else as the application is amazing.

They are prompt in their response with a complete resolution once they have identified the problem. Other OEM's generally give stop-gap arrangements and then later come with new upgrade versions. This gives downtime tasks to customers often, which isn't appreciated. Given the criticality of this software, their support is prompt.

Alternatives Considered
Extreme Networks
Since 2003/04, I've evaluated, used, configured, and set up dozens of Wifi networks and none has had the capabilities and complex abilities that Aerohive offers as a solution. During the evaluation period, it was a clear standout from an office and business environment due to the advanced configuration options and security settings that were required.

Better intergration with patch management tools. Forescount Platfform (CounterAct) is easily compatible with diverse network infrastructure to offer better service and efficiently ensure seamless operations. Its automation capabilities have also enabled us to depend less on the operations teams hence saving time as it's faster and also saving the operational cost of having people around in case of threats.
