Very simple, yet lacks granularity still

  • November 12, 2021
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Anyone can figure out the simplistic interface and accomplish what they need
What do you dislike?
lacks granularity that real pros thirst for. I want a feature set that allows me multiple methods to accomplish a task, meraki cant do so.
Feature set is no different than a mid 2000s ngfw has.
no independent security reviews either and in my pro opinion its because it doesnt have ssl inspection which if it did would bolster the IPS/AV services, and without is so terrible its not worth reviewing.

Bottom line if your a smaller SMB this is a solid option just be sure to do ssl inspection through another service even as simple as cisco umbrella DNS has ssl inspection.

beta beta beta everything runs beta that gets annoying, you cant be deploying products that require a feature but is in beta.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
simplifying networks so much that it decreases labor costs and thus saves smaller customers money they can invest elsewhere.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
make sure you dont soley rely on meraki's UTM services and augment it with other products. Umbrella has nice integrations and also does SSL inspection for instance.

Cloud controlled, centrally managed network solution including Wi-Fi, security and routing

  • November 08, 2021
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Easy management as we can access the dashboard anywhere anytime. Single Dashboard provides control over the products of Wireless APs, Firewalls, Security Cameras & Switches. Meraki dispatches new features and regular updates to fix the various bugs/vulnerabilities.
What do you dislike?
Troubleshooting an issue is not so easy as debug commands are not visible for the client. Meraki TAC needs to improve the service as they are not helpful in troubleshooting some issues.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We manage more than 300 access points placed across the country from a single dashboard. 802.1x authentication and Guest Wifi solution have been implemented. Managing Firewalls and applying rules can be done easily.

Cisco Meraki is one of the greatest WLAN products on the market!

  • November 07, 2021
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Cisco Meraki has a very intuitive interface. It's broken in down into sections and every section has 'Monitoring' and 'Configure' settings. Meraki is alerting whenever there's a problem in the network and is often suggesting very useful resolution methods. It's getting insight from millions of Cisco TAC cases and utilizes AI to analyze issues.
What do you dislike?
One thing that I'm missing in Meraki is the ability to download a specific device configuration and back it up. You can't create a snapshot of the network and just roll back the state from some time in the past.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We are currently migrating to Cisco Meraki and replacing the hardware equipment in 7 offices across the world. Cisco Meraki offers a highly available network and very reliable Site-to-site VPN with our AWS infrastructure. The option to configure the network via a simple cloud dashboard and API makes it very easy for administration.

Hardware you never realy own

  • August 18, 2021
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
It's easy to deploy and fits the low-end niche.
What do you dislike?
While you purchase the gear, it's effectively a lease. The gear itself is low end, perfectly fine for a small office, but not suited for enterprise or DC space.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We pretty much find it, and clients network and schedule it to be replaced. It gives you a nice single pane of glass interface.

Centralized Dashboard

  • August 17, 2021
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
centralized management dashboard for all cisco Meraki devices such as wireless access points, Security cameras, Switches, and SD-WAN devices. easy deploy cisco Meraki devices, we deployed Cisco Meraki access points, the time taken for deploying access points are very less as there is no need to do any configuration in access points. Once we plugin cable which has internet access then everything can be managed from the Meraki cloud dashboard. Which saves time.
What do you dislike?
when coming to dislikes, I can say the price for the subscription of Meraki, which is somewhat expensive.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Managing remote branch and head office Meraki devices is now very easy by using the Meraki dashboard. No need to visit onsite to configure the devices which save time and cost.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Highly recommended for those who have multiple branch offices.
