Great for a large range of businesses

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall we are pleased with our Meraki purchase and installation. We used a system integrator to obtain it but looking back we could have saved some money doing it ourselves but the quick onboarding and initial setup by the integrator ensured we got running quickly

Vorteile:

Meraki is a cloud based product that controls on premises and remote hardware. The hardware is top of the line and includes all the functions you would expect from an exterprise offering. Given the broad number of options and the cloud based always updating nature of this product if fill many needs and be adopted by most organizations.

Nachteile:

Some of the navigation takes some getting used to and I wish it would flow more but there are so many features that building a fluid navigation gets tough, even for Cisco. The graphing could also be better and offer additional options when you need more details but generally it will fill most needs.

In Betracht gezogene Alternativen:

Robust MDM platform used for management of iOS devices

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: We started using Meraki SM when it was still being made available for free to small organizations. At the time, the system was simple, but provided us with what we needed. As the system grew and was improved upon, primarily as Apple released new management options for iOS devices, it became necessary for us to upgrade from the free platform to a paid subscription. The per-user pricing was very competitive, and the available management options were well worth the cost.

Vorteile:

Setup of an enterprise MDM was made easy with Meraki SM. The web administration portal was easy to use, and offered us all of the functionality we needed initially, as well as has provided us the opportunity to increase our use over time. The platform is well designed, simple to use, and responsive. The app management solutions provided through SM are excellent, as well as the user/device options for license assignment and updating.

Nachteile:

We have found the location mapping to be unreliable in Meraki SM, despite having our mobile devices all GPS enabled and configured to make location information available to the SM app. The location tracking tends to use cellular location based on IP addressing and tower locations rather than GPS coordinates provided by the device. Policy pushing over the air is hit or miss, and it can take multiple attempts to get a client device to receive the revised policies. The greatest restrictions of the Meraki MDM seem to lie with Apple not making as many centralized management options available as they should, since enterprise use of iOS doesn't seem to be on their list of priorities.

Great solution for our business

5,0 vor 4 Wochen Neu

Vorteile:

Cloud config is obviously huge. Being able to have a site set up and ready to go in the cloud before anything is plugged in make acquisitions and new stores so easy to stand up. Most new features are software based so it's only getting better.

Nachteile:

Pricing could be easier to understand. There are some features that a more advanced network might need but it works great for us. It definitely should have better monitoring built in.

Lots of promise but not enough focus on the core

3,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: This software has great promise as an MDM solution but it lags behind other solutions. If you’re looking for free and iOS/Android this is for you. If you want to manage computers you may want to consider looking elsewhere. Systems Manager doesn’t scale well and provide advanced features.

Vorteile:

This is a beautiful MDM solution that supports all platforms which is great. There are some features not found elsewhere that make it easy to integrate security functionality with Meraki’s networking stack. Want WPA2 enterprise with TLS? Systems manager makes this seamless.

Nachteile:

Feature set prioritizes integration with Meraki stack. Features introduced by Apple or Microsoft at the OS level can take months if not years to finally be implemented. This can cause quite a lag as your user base upgrades. No real features to manage the patch level of devices aside from manually pushing updates each time. Licensing cost fluctuates frequently (it’s free, it’s paid, it’s mostly free but sometimes paid).

A good solution for SMB

4,0 vor 2 Monaten

Kommentare: It's been good for the most part. It takes a while to find things as I came from a Cisco only shop but it is usable by people who have no network experience if you need someone like that to be able to vlan a port or something like that.

Vorteile:

It is easier to install and maintain than most similar products. You can easily establish vpn's between owned devices with dynamic ip addresses.

Nachteile:

Ran into an issue recently where you can not define access for Software VPN clients to networks that are vpn connected that are not Meraki.

Easy to use and comprehensive tools for managing mobile devices and other assets

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

A single one-stop location for remote management of iOS and other mobile devices and other assets. In particular, monitoring and administrating iOS devices is challenging and this tool has saved countless hours in configuring and deploying and maintaining iPhones in our business.

Nachteile:

The features for updating Apps from the App Store needs improvement.

Meraki a reliable, stable and centrally managed network

4,0 vor 9 Monaten

Kommentare: Benefits of using a Meraki network are many, centralization of all devices, switches, firewall and in our case wifi access points, these have a stable radio signal emission power and ensuring the connection in the different wifi standart allowing to connect any kind of mobile devices from low to high range; in addition to having centralized management from the cloud that allows us to make adjustments to the settings from anywhere in the world with internet connection being reflected instantly on the monitored equipment, in conclusion a reliable network although a little expensive to implement but which is worth the investment.

Vorteile:

Meraki has left a positive mark in our company due to its benefits and the experience that supports it, we have a large number of access points MR distributed in different areas of the city in parks, educational institutions, hospitals and each of them is monitored easily and remotely from the web; thanks to this we can analyze the capacity of connections, radio frequency channel in use, current wifi standard 802. 11 b/g/n/ac, also thanks to the power and stability in the signal emission of each MR we guarantee to the users a clean connection without interruptions that for some of the cases a stable connection is vital.

Nachteile:

With the continuous expansion of our network also demands the inclusion of more MR devices, these are notoriously more expensive although comparing the cost/benefit ratio is worth the investment, however, one of the limitations for this type of network is its close dependence on the internet connection to perform advanced technical configurations on the devices, everything related to ACS configuration, MAC filtering (black or white list) as it does not allow such configurations locally limiting it to communication with the central administration.

A Must Have For Any Company

5,0 letzten Monat Neu

Vorteile:

I can't say enough that I love at Meraki. The ease of use of the dashboard or being able to make multiple changes on multiple switches across any of the sites within an organization. It cuts down on management tasks immensely.

Nachteile:

I wish they had a blended consumer product that allowed tech savvy home users to be able to setup or protect their home networks without the annual licensing cost.

Meraki Firewalls

Vorteile:

It is very easy and intuitive to manage and support is always responsive and helpful

Nachteile:

A lot of the needed log information is missing from the customer portal - you need to contact support for it. Does not play very nice with third-party firewalls for site-to-site VPNs

Cisco Meraki is Intelligent Simplicity

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: It has been one of the best experience ever. Switching from Blue (Cisco Traditional) or any other vendor to Green (Cisco Meraki) has been seamless. But then again, it will depend on your context.

Vorteile:

The ease of deployment. You can be up and running (with policies defined) withing minutes!

Nachteile:

Once configured, the policies takes about a minute or too to be take effect. I believe this depends on your own internet connectivity as well. Also, the native windows vpn client is buggy but it has announced that Cisco Anyconnect Client will soon be compatible with Cisco Meraki VPN Services!

Meraki is easier than regular Cisco Wireless.

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

1) Consolidated management of all of our Meraki devices at different location. 2) You can use same configuration template for all or multiple locations. 3) Cisco meraki's keeping up with new vulnerability game is really good. 4) You can use MX devices for SD-WAN which is much more simpler than regular Cisco CLI devices.

Nachteile:

1) If you are using template based deployment then your guest ambassador account can't delete user accounts for wireless. 2) Like many other cloud solution, there is a lack of granularity & fear of compromise.

Meraki - easy to use for the Network administrator

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall, I would choose Meraki again. The costs are evened out by not needing to have a network engineer on staff if you have a good understanding of your network. Not for the enterprise, but small to medium business with a Network Administrator would benefit greatly with all the features you get with their products.

Vorteile:

I didn't have to use CLI to make any configurations. The GUI is very intuitive and easy to navigate. The built-in net flow allowed me to catch a ransomware attack by providing me the data usage and source/destination information. Quickly isolated the offending device and got it unplugged.

Nachteile:

Price. You purchase the hardware, then also have to license each device. This makes for a pretty expensive network appliance over time.

Best Network Management Software

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: It has drastically helped us manage our network and assign privileges to students who need to be further restricted.

Vorteile:

Meraki is easily the best way to manage Access Points and switches. My favorite feature is the tagging system so I can tag a whole group of clients or AP's and assign SSID's, privileges and anything else I want to anybody who falls into that category.

Nachteile:

It is on a licensing deal. I would rather buy the application and devices and be done with it rather than worrying about figuring out licenses for everything as well.

Free tier is great

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: It makes it much safer and simpler to deploy mailboxes.

Vorteile:

The software can be used for up to 100 devices without charge making it very good value for money. It monitors our devices very well and can even deploy policies to individual devices that have certain tags, such as mailboxes.

Nachteile:

As soon as you go 1 license over the 100 free, you have to pay for all 101.

Such a great interface

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

The depth of security and surveillance power meraki offers is incredible. So many layers and levels of applications and details you can configure to your network to make it exactly how you want or need it.

Nachteile:

The home page to each location always goes to the last page you had open on it which can be annoying but also niche.

Meraki Systems Manager for MDM needs

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: This was the perfect solution to help us manage company issued iPads, iPhones and Apple TV's. We can now track, secure, wipe or unlock any of these devices from the console. Best of all, pushing apps and settings to those devices is simple and can be done remotely.

Vorteile:

We liked that it was a breeze to setup and managing devices can occur the same day you have a license to use it. We had a free trial and got to test all features of the tool before committing.

Nachteile:

It could use a customizable dashboard. The reporting side needs to be a bit more robust as well.

Meraki Network Management

Vorteile:

The meraki portal allows aggregation of networking devices on a single software platform. That is, if you're networking hardware is made by Cisco. The dashboards are great at displaying compact/relevant flows of network information.
