ForeScout CounterACT is well suited for a company looking to strengthen their network security. It has allowed us to be confident that there is not a rogue device connecting directly into our network to gain access to company information. It may not be suitable to a company with a small IT department as it does require time up front to initially configure and on an on-going basis to manage.

Palo Alto Networks Prisma SD-WAN (CloudGenix)

The Palo Alto Networks CloudGenix devices work especially well in a hub and spoke environment, especially if you are looking at adding point-to-point VPN tunnel functionality. They allow us to combine various ISP connections and provide analytics to automatically determine the best path for any given application to take based on priority levels you can manage.

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.

The support was super fast in the beginning. Sometimes it seems now that the support does not get back to you as quickly. When we do get in contact with the support, they are usually knowledgeable and can help find the problem. The support has also been easy to work with.

CounterACT was the product that was able to do exactly what we were looking to accomplish and that was to block non-company owned devices from connecting to our network based on our criteria. It will allow us to decide if a blocked device should be allowed on our network temporarily

Palo Alto Networks Prisma SD-WAN (CloudGenix)

We used Peplink routers prior to CloudGenix. The dashboard wasn’t as clean and they were difficult to license, provision and manage. We evaluated Meraki and VeloCloud. The pricing model of Meraki was fine but VeloCloud pricing just didn’t work for us. The Meraki device lacked some of the functionality we needed.
