Overall Satisfaction with Perimeter 81

Perimeter81 provides us with a secure network to connect our team members to, primarily from remote based locations, allowing us to tunnel securely into other cloud services or lock down access to web services to a specific static IP (provided by Perimeter81). We use the Perimeter81 agent on a mixture of Windows, Mac and Linux endpoints, which then allows us to connect to one of the secure networks we've setup - it's easy to setup for new starters.

Pros

  • Administration of network / tunnels is straight forward
  • Easy to install for new starters
  • Support for a mixture of operating systems

Cons

  • Automatic agent upgrades - sometimes these fail and require a manual update
  • Secure network / VPN
  • Support for linux (many providers only support Windows and OS X)
  • Simple agent deployment
  • Decreased the amount of time spent on VPN maintenance
  • Sped up the onboarding of new starters

Yes

Would you buy Check Point Harmony SASE again?

Yes

I'd suggest that Perimeter81 is recommended when you want something that is easy to administrate, with little maintenance, unlike a VPN/secure network that you host and manage internally. We've had incidents when there has been downtime at Perimeter81, which has effectively locked us out of some of our secure services (anything locked down via IP). They have made improvements to their infrastructure and it seems to have improved in recent months, but this is something to keep in mind for critical connections.
