Cisco Meraki Cloud-Powered Solutions
Security with the Meraki product line is unprecedented. All traffic is filtered through a secure cloud maintained by Cisco and is monitored by our network operations center. Meraki firewalls with advanced security offers granular content filtering to prevent unwanted browsing and block known sources of malware and malicious websites. Content filtering can be integrated with Microsoft Active Directory to provide different levels of access to certain groups of personnel.
The MX has a comprehensive suite of network services, eliminating the need for multiple appliances.
Auditing is very important in any corporate network. Meraki products provide auditing capabilities out of the box to ensure compliance audits run smoothly. Also, analytical data can be utilized for marketing and re-marketing purposes in commercial retail environments.
Backups can be complicated for traditional networking gear. Often times, small changes are made to networking components over time and the changes are not saved to a backup configuration file. With Meraki this is not a concern because the configuration is secured in Cisco's encrypted cloud and is easily accessible for review or restore capabilities.
Meraki enables multi-site analysis and reporting of users with WiFi devices through location analytics.
