We use it for the protection of our network and for access to our network Wi-Fi. We mainly use two products of Meraki. We use the MX Series router and Access Point MR. MX is a router, and its deployment is installed on-premises, but the management or administration is done on the cloud.

We are a solution provider and Meraki is one of the firewall products that we implement for our customers.

The primary reason we implemented this product is as a gateway router. That is the first functionality that we sought out for. It also has all of these built-in intrusion detection and malware protection firewall features. So, we are also using it for the firewall capability that is built into it.

We deploy this solution for our customers. We do the cloud and on-premises deployments, and we have all the versions.

The primary use case is a zero-touch deployment.

We have migrated all wide area network (WAN) links from the conventional connection to the cloud-managed SD-WAN. We have all ranges. We are using the lowest model MX65 and the highest model MX450. We have deployed on-premises and on the cloud because the hardware requires an on-premises placement and then it works on the cloud. We have more than 1500 users. We have approximately 1500 employees, and we also have guests who are bringing their own devices. Some of the users have got multiple devices, so the number of users increases. When you look at the dashboard, you might find more than 3,000 end-user devices across the group.

Meraki MX Firewalls solutions are very customized for our groups. We are a worldwide group. We are currently implementing an IT solution worldwide. We have to replace old firewalls in the next couple of years in many countries. We are working on this project. We used Meraki MX 55005 firewalls previously. In between, we used many different firewalls from other companies. We won't be doing the acquisition of many new parts by these companies now. We have tested different brands of firewalls. We have to consolidate to handle a better solution. We chose Meraki because we are already familiar with the products. Meraki MX firewalls are one point, but also have good availability. We have many people from different countries in which we have Cisco contracts to serve. It's not only a technical aspect but also a commercial reason for our choice of Meraki.

Our primary use is perhaps a little unusual. Many of our clients like the product, or want to consider the product, and we own it so that we can do valid product comparison and testing.

We made a big change recently in the company. The company didn't have a firewall. We suggested putting Meraki products in the company.

We use Meraki MX firewalls with Cisco. Some features must go through Cisco to implement. What the application needs is not included in Meraki. I use Cisco to access a portal and they provide the features. Then we implement it in Meraki.

Security appliance/firewall and SD-WAN. With an advanced security license, the content filtering, IDS, and geographical blocking features are surprisingly good compared to using alternative solutions with no noticeable performance hit. The geographical blocking is a great security feature but you have to use with planning. I’ve managed to block a few vendors websites and mail servers without realizing what country those vendors were located in. When you’re not use to having geographical blocking the first time I had the problem it took a while to troubleshoot why the connectivity was missing. Sorta over secured myself. Not the MX’s fault.

I used the MX80 as primary FW in a small Office with 50 users. The options provide even non-FW-specialist a way to manage and block certain aspects of internet usage. The main purpose of the Meraki is to use Internet for Users. Not filter traffic for Servers. Together with other network gear you get an overall visibility into each client on the network. Thats is fantastic. Meraki offers free trails and you can get the entry level gear very cheap. The support model allows usage of the cloud management only if you have support. But then you get all features and updates. We now use the small MX as a VPN tunnel in the small offices. The SDWAN feature is great as it connects to any point if one is not available. Setup is easy as bam. Check it out.
