  • Cisco Meraki was a great upgrade from old networking equipment that delivered a lot more features at a roughly cheaper cost.
  • With the ability to manage network configurations anywhere we are able to remotely diagnose and fix issues with our Cisco appliances without having to physically be at a data center saving time and money on travel.
  • We can carry out disaster recovery protocols much easier as we can upload backed-up configurations for our switches and firewalls allowing us less downtime by not having to configure switches.

  • Meraki MX makes it easier to control firewall policies, which make a positive impact on the overall org and makes Security teams happy.
  • Meraki MX makes it easier to control the enterprise WAN which makes the network more reliable and also gives a lot of confidence in case of failure of one ISP link.
  • Faster implementation helped creating the positive impact.

  • For retail, Cisco Meraki MX helps keep us PCI compliant, so we save a bunch on the compliance fees we don't have to pay
  • Cisco Meraki MX also saves us on endpoint costs - we are able to use the Microsoft 365 Premium subscription which includes Windows Defender - instead of a high-priced solution because the edge is so well protected.
  • The greatest negative impact is the license fees - they are expensive!

  • Meraki has increased availability by quickly replacing failing or failed devices.
  • Meraki has increased security at each site by including the AMP firewall.
  • Meraki has increased availability by load balancing internet circuits and using QoS. These are not unique features but Meraki has simplified the process.

  • Managing the remote workforce was easily configured and expandable, especially in the past year or so when WFH exploded into the new workplace.
  • The web console and mobile administration app have full capabilities and have proved incredibly useful.
  • Threat Protection and Intrusion Detection and Prevention are always working in our best interest.
