Meraki MX Firewalls are a game-changer

We use Cisco Meraki MX Firewalls to create VPN connectivity between sites. We also use this at locations with minimal IT support since configuration is done remotely. We generally use this across the organization.
  • VPN Connectivity between sites is basically automatic.
  • Configuration is extremely simple.
  • We have run into more complex situations that the Cisco Meraki MX Firewalls can not support.
  • I think the firmware upgrade can be a bit confusing.
  • We find Cisco Meraki MX Firewalls best at smaller remote sites where the requirements are relatively primary remote offices, retail locations, ETC. It can be managed remotely as long as there's Internet connectivity, and the VPN configuration back to the central office is excellent.
  • Complex firewall operations can be tricky. Some times we have had to resort to using an ASA device.

The Cisco Meraki MX Firewalls were used in regional offices across multiple locations. They support the backend offices. Everything around our specific use-case can also be found on a case study of Cisco's, search for "Cisco Meraki MyRepublic".
  • Easy administration through cloud dashboards.
  • Unified view across multiple locations and multiple product lines (firewalls, access points, switches, cameras).
  • Functionality is being abstracted and hidden in the dashboard, what's not in the dashboard can't be used.
  • Didn't cater well for complex use cases.
It's very well useable for small to medium office structures. Cisco Meraki MX Firewalls shines with the unified dashboard and the ability to manage hardware across multiple locations. The downside are more complex setups, where it just doesn't fit with the limited functionality and hidden features.
