Über Cisco Meraki
Überwache und verwalte mobile und Desktop-Geräte in der Cloud über ein sicheres Dashboard.
There are some features not found elsewhere that make it easy to integrate security functionality with Meraki’s networking stack.
Really haven't come into any major issues, I know at one point the device failed but was quickly RMA'd and replaced.

Easy use, configuration and implementation
Kommentare: Cisco Meraki a powerful solution to obtain a stable and reliable network and adaptable to the characteristics of each company that needs a powerful network, excellent levels of security and with optimal cloud-based centralized management.
It provides ease of configuration, easy cloud management and a high level of security. It allows to obtain a high performance, connection without interruptions and a stable speed of connection. It offers access to the best security portfolio, traffic analysis and reliable solutions.
Its cost is significantly high compared to similar solutions, the benefits offered by its implementation must be considered.
Great for a large range of businesses
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
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.
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.

Meraki for MDM and Wireless
Kommentare: Overall we're very happy. Deployments are easy and not having to support controllers has been helpful, although controller based systems do have their advantages. MDM has helped us maintain better control and tracking over our mobile assets.
the ease of use is great. Deployment is straight forward for Meraki devices. MDM management is not extremely intuitive, but in fairness this is our first MDM product. Consoles are easy to navigate. For the price it is an effective product.
Licensing is a bit confusing, Menu in the management console could use a little improvement, more streamlined, reporting is very lacking.
Lots of promise but not enough focus on the core
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.
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.
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).
Network Configuration with a click of a button
Kommentare: We have managed. To reduce travelling cost where at times we would travel to remote offices for configurations. Now this can be done remotely. The organisation realised a lot of savings
Meraki is easy to deploy and easy to configure. You can configure devices for different offices remotely. You can configure the devices even if the other devices are offline. You do not need to run commands. All configurations are done by click of a button. They can work as hybrid system working with non meraki devices
The Meraki equipment usually takes long to be delivered. Cisco needs to increase production so that customers won't have to wait for ages for the equipment to be delivered.

Robust MDM platform used for management of iOS devices
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.
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.
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.
Easy to use and comprehensive tools for managing mobile devices and other assets
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.
The features for updating Apps from the App Store needs improvement.
Meraki Firewall for all
In general we have done well.
We connect several offices with VPN and integrating more as we require is easy to do.
The management of the network and the use of the internet is good.
It has also remained stable and protected against threats that may come from the Internet.
What we like the most is the ease of administration and the large number of functions that a single device contains. We don't worry about software updates and we are always getting new features or improvements. One of the last major ones was the use of SD-WAN and more recently the ability to support VPN Anyconnect.
I think what we like the least is that sometimes from one computer to another the jumps of products are very drastic to support more users. The support (TAC) has also not been the best compared to what is received with Cisco products, there is still a lot to improve.
Easy to use systems manager
Meraki Systems Manager is designed to be easy to use. From setup time to adding endpoints, everything is easy and quick. It easily helps to track and, if necessary, remotely wipe lost devices. I also like the geofence feature as it sends notifications whenever a device leaves the geofenced region.
Though there has been some improvement in recent years, the system still contains some bugs. The mobile apps really need to be updated, especially the iOS app.
Manage all your devices from one screen!
Kommentare: We can monitor many products from security to wireless range extenders and increase their continuity.
It ends the need to use separate software for each product.
Being dependent on Vendor affects costs.
Comprehensive Network Management Tool
Kommentare: I work for a managed IT provider, and many of our clients utilize Meraki networking hardware. We do not use this software for MDM, but it is a quite robust management solution for managing networking equipment, whether you need to manage multiple clients or just one. I am not in charge of setting Meraki equipment up (only managing it after setup) but it appears to be easy to set up multiple sites within an organization, and there are a plethora of tools in a fairly easy to use interface to make managing your network easier.
For our clients who are using Meraki, I really enjoy being able to see the status of a client's site(s) at a glance to help determine if there are underlying problems on the network. Compared to other firewall options, Meraki makes is simple to carry out admin tasks like URL whitelisting, port forwarding, and creating other general FW rules. Meraki also makes it quite simple to set up VPNs (both site-to-site and client versions). It also has a good range of troubleshooting tools built right into the console (ping, traceroute, DNS lookup), eliminating the need to connect directly to the device to accomplish such tasks.
I feel like there have been moments where I wish there was more in-depth logging capabilities within the management console, but I am having trouble recalling specifics at this time. The console isn't otherwise really lacking in anything that I can think of.

Cisco Meraki is Intelligent Simplicity
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.
The ease of deployment. You can be up and running (with policies defined) withing minutes!
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!
Decent MDM - But Conversion to License structure is irritating
Kommentare: Sales/account reps are purely focused on selling you new stuff so they can improve their numbers. they do not look out for you once you've bought their product.
It has a decent feature set - including remote management of profiles and security features, For both Macs and iOS. The ability to completely lock down and erase the entire device has been nice in a few extreme situations. The UI is intuitive and easy to use with LOTS of information about the devices being managed.
Initially we enjoyed the fact that we were given a relatively high if not unlimited (I cannot recall) now, we are billed per device. Which is fine. But the process to obtain the licenses is absolutely ridiculous, takes way too long and they do not allow for our account for an upgrade process. IE client has 20 computers enrolled, and they replace all of them, well you have to get another 20 licenses (paying for 40 computers) and then remove the old computes when they are phased out. Then decrease the license count. There is zero flexibility here, and the vendor was borderline indignant when it was pointed out how this is a problem in the real world.
Plenty of Features when they work
Kommentare: It gives us what we wanted from a MDM with a good price, functionality and features. Having it share the same management screens as our APs, routers and switches is a huge bonus in managing devices. But blacklisting of software seems to be the only consistently working part with software as deployment and whitelisting is not very reliable.
It is very easy to setup and start using. It has a lot of functions that can you can see in more expensive products but all cloud based and managed. Having no on premise foot print is great and it has the same dashboard as our Meraki devices we manage. We do not need to switch to check or update the status of devices. This does device inventory and deployment of software. Can find where devices are and who is logged in to them.
The MDM for managing the installation and whitelisting of software is poor. We would approve software for users but then when an update to the app happens we would need to approve the app again. We have used the setting to keep the app approved for all updates but it does not work. Force installing the software is not reliable at all.
Meraki all in one dashboard administration
Kommentare: A+ with meraki, i have more than 40 meraki appliances all of them where deployed with no issues at all. I now have full visibility of my network, and can do any config change on the fly with no effort at all.
Recently the company that i work for upgraded from an old 10/100 network to a brand new gigabyte network witch includes every network device meraki offers, MX Routers, MS Switches and wifi6 MR Radios, all of them have the great functionality meraki offers and this is all can be easly managed from one single meraki console, the configurations are seamlessly pushed into the devices almost in real time, no delay at all, meraki offers all the cisco strength and adds a very ease to use console full of options that i need to say, if you wish to have the whole functions package you will need to have and advance license wich will cost a little bit more..
the licensing costs are quite high, but this is just the way it is, if you want to easly manage any device no matter where the device is, no matter where you are, then meraki is the way to go. it will cost yes, but youll get what you pay for.
Kommentare: best solution in my network due to multiple devices i.e laptop, mobiles, hand-haled devices but troubleshoot and management is very fast and effective and its helps us giving up time in production environment .
Management of multiple device on a single network with different OS Simple and scalability and Artificial Intelligence and analytics feature Claude bass services with central dashboard for management .
only few models have Wifi6 and those devices are to expensive. Clean Air Advanced features only available with Cisco APs. license procedure/methods is complicated.
Cloud management of equipment with Cisco Meraki.
Kommentare: When we have a problem with a fall in someone's equipment, we receive an email and SMS alerting them. Everything is easier and safer with cloud management. Cisco Meraki support when we needed it was quick, thoughtful and efficient to solve the problem.
With Cisco Meraki we are able to manage switches and access points in the cloud and from anywhere. The platform has a clean, friendly and easy to use graphic interface. With the white menu everything is nice to make the settings. At Cisco Meraki we have complete management with site plans and the status of all equipment in real time.
We have been using it for a few years and I do not have anything negative to comment on so far because the management and Cisco Meraki equipment have a lot of quality and security and do not give errors and problems.
We use this product mainly for phones and it's amazingly feature-rich in that regard. Every piece of information I could ever want is available on the dashboard once the software is installed. The ability to use Apple DEP is amazing, as our phones automatically install MSM as soon as they are activated, right out the box. Setting up DEP is a hassle at first, but completely worth it as it takes away all other steps of configuration. As soon as a phone is ordered through Apple or a certified reseller, it will have MSM out of the box. You can even use MSM to install other pieces of software such as time trackers, CRM software, etc. It's a fantastic tool. Once installed you can get GPS coord, public IP address, storage stats, WiFi stats, ICCID, IMEI, MAC address, encryption and jailbreak status, and much more. You can send messages to the phone (Why are you at McDonald's and not work?), you can remotly disable password protection (or add it) and, obviously, you can remotely wipe the phone. MSM does everything our old mobile device management software did and MUCH more for aroudn the same cost.
Setting up Apple DEP is a pain. Adding MSM to exsiting phones is a time consuming process and, unless you wipe the phone, you only get some of the features by just installing the app from the app store. The user would also be able to remove the software.
Meraki - Management at your Fingertips
Kommentare: Overall, Cisco Meraki is a great company with some of the best products and services. I currently use their firewalls, switches, access points and system manager. When using all their products the user experience is excellent. The equipment and services are high quality but you will pay a premium to use them.
Meraki Systems Manager is a cloud based management system that grants you the ability to manage devices within your network. You can see a lot of information about device use, manufacturer and connectivity. You can apply user policies and utilize Meraki’s built in Mobile Device Management. You can manage PC, Mac, Chromebook, iOS, Android and more!
System Manager is a great tool and has great customer service, however Meraki licensing is pricey compared to other tools available.
Amazing functionality for the value, gives great visibility on devices
Kommentare: Fantastic! I have used Spiceworks and other inventory tools in the past and Meraki Systems Manager suits our requirements the best. As well as monitoring device performance, storage, etc. it allows me to organise devices by tags and really keep on top of my inventory.
Integration with Meraki Dashboard, free for up to 100 devices which makes it ideal for smaller businesses. Also the ability to remotely end tasks, remote command line, RDP web client, screenshots and useful statistics make this a valuable solution when managing desktops, servers and mobile devices.
Nothing really, sometimes devices take a few minutes to update in the dashboard but I don't have any complaints about the product. It is updated regularly like most Meraki products and gets better the longer you use it.
Great fully-featured cross-platform MDM solution
Kommentare: We needed a basic iOS MDM for about 50 iPads, and Meraki SM fit the bill with their Free 100 device plan. In a space where most iOS MDMs are the same in features and in price, Systems Manager has unique features like Tags, and allows us to expand our management to Android and Windows, which we will most certainly be taking advantage of in the future.
-Aggregation of MDM policies across iOS, macOS, Android, and Windows platforms make it really easy to deploy the same setting, such as screen lock, to multiple platforms without drilling the per-platform settings -Supports all iOS MDM settings and is quick to implement new ones as Apple introduces them -Tagging system is incredibly useful to identify and organize different devices - this is unique to Meraki -Although we don't have Meraki networking products - they can all be managed from the same dashboard -Just like most MDM platforms, it offers easy web-based device registration, and syncs with Apple VPP and School Manager
-Web management dashboard has a steep learning curve and is not very intuitive - a task like deploying a new app to devices involves three or four different management pages -Pricing is comparable, if not a bit more expensive than other iOS MDMs, but its cross-platform support makes up for this
Easy to use and great sync in cloud
I love the synchronization in the cloud and make all things in everywhere in anytime without problems
VPN client not exist and I have to create a manual configuration are complicated
Powerful product in combination with Meraki hardware
Kommentare: Overall a brilliant product and system, there is a reason we have been using the Meraki products for the past 8 years.
The ability to remotely manager and monitor the network remotely has significantly cut down on support call outs and requests among our clients. Everything on the network is visible from the moment traffic hits the WAN to the clients machine. The tools for diagnosing and checking network issues are amazing. As well as the granularity of the information displayed to the ability to 'micro manage' the network.
Not so much an issue with the software , but the cost of licenses and hardware can be pretty steep especially if you replace all the network devices.
Making networks easy (as usual)
Kommentare: Moving to Meraki has solved so many network issues and made the entire infrastructure reliable and easy to manage. A move from one office to the other involved no downtime of the network or the VPN thanks to the intelligent interface.
The ability to maintain and manage your networks from anywhere is a real advantage and the access control and ability to resolve issues fast is a real bonus. I cannot recommend this infrastructure solution enough.
The licensing can be confusing and additions to equipment will move dates about which you should be aware of. Once you understand that dates will move about, it makes it easier, but there should be more warnings.
Meraki is easier than regular Cisco Wireless.
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.
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.
