Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Meraki MX Firewalls

We use Meraki MX Firewalls within our organization and also provide MX firewalls to our end users. Our entire organization is protected behind MX series firewalls, from our corporate HQ to our remote satellite offices.
  • Great status charts and notification alerts.
  • Easy to use UI.
  • Cisco Meraki licensing costs tend to be high compared to competitors.
  • Once your licensing expires the hardware is useless.
  • ROI has been great since our IT staff has been freed up to focus on other tasks.
  • Easy management and deployment are the key business objectives that have been met.
Remote management was difficult to set-up and standardize.
I would have given a 10 but once your licensing runs out the hardware is useless. I wish they had an option to load open-source firmware on the devices.
