"It offers good visibility for the Administrator. The administrator has full visibility of what is blocked or has the knowledge of where users go when they are surfing the internet."
"Cisco Umbrella is absolutely stable."
"I think recently with many people working from home, Cisco Umbrella has been very useful. For example, we can manage the device and the network when the employee is not working on the local host. Cisco Umbrella is very valuable for this kind of infrastructure."
"I like that it integrates with the infrastructure. I also like the kind of data and intelligence that's built-in. It helps create innovative reports for security."
"The solution is extremely stable. It has excellent performance."
"What we like most is security and how easy it is to integrate with other appliances."
"I have found the malware protection feature valuable. It is helpful and deliverable and is able to protect my entire organization from getting compromised. It also prevents us from visiting any malicious sites which are not visible to the users."
"We've found it to be stable and good for our customers."
"The flexibility is a great feature."
"Their dashboard is also a good point for us and the customer. The solution is very clean and easy."
"The division of Control Plane and Data Plane is most valuable. It can be deployed anywhere, and you can control it and configure it from anywhere. This is one of the good features of this solution."
"The solution is stable and suitable."
"The most valuable aspects of the solution are the next-generation firewall features and geo-blocking capabilities."
"It is very easy to deploy. The GUI interface is really good, and the security features are also very good. It is also stable and scalable, and their support is also good."
"Overall, it's nice and very user friendly. That's what makes it so successful. They give you complicated features but with a very simple user interface, and that's been a big success for them."
"There are great security and ops features without the need for having a different box for security."
"The service they provide is very stable and is the main influencer of why customers purchase this solution."
"Some of the best features are the SD-WAN platform for VMware and the NSX network virtualization."
"Proactively detects where problems might arise."
"The most valuable features are the orchestration layer, plug and play capabilities, and also the fact that you can either configure it as a full mesh or hard install."
"In my experience, the setup process has been fairly straightforward."
"It is very simple to configure. When you use the cloud to configure the equipment, it has zero-touch provisioning."
"There are 400 functionalities of the system."
"The biggest feature is called D.M.P.O., or Dynamic Multipath Optimization, which is one of the technologies that they use to deliver or ensure data integrity."
"There are cheaper solutions in the market"
"Missing a real data leakage prevention solution."
"It could be more secure. It would be better if they provided a transferring proxy as an add-on and more integration."
"The pricing could always be a little bit better."
"The pricing is a bit high. Being outside of the USA, we have issues with the exchange rate."
"It should have a real-time malware classification engine. It should check the malware on the website. It would be good if it had a real-time malware check for the websites because currently, it just compares the DNS queries of the blacklist. It should also have malware control over file execution and the types of files that the users are allowed to download."
"They need to improve analytics so they report on more of the specifics of user activity."
"I would like to see integration with SecurNX in the future."
"We are thinking about how to make customers consolidate the loads to an SD-WAN network so that the customers can have bigger chunk from the SD-WAN side so that customers can have critical data be transferred with NPS VPN and non-critical data or some labeled traffic can be transferred by the SD-WAN network. I think it's a very important direction for digital transformation."
"The support needs to be improved."
"The security should be improved."
"Another thing that should be improved in Versa are their firewall features."
"I heard about them for the first time just before I started working on Versa. They do have blogs for information, but they could publicize more about the documentation and architecture. It doesn't seem to have that much exposure, and they should work on their customer base more."
"Future releases should contain AI for the voice feature."
"The smaller units lack a lot of functionality."
"SASE is the next big thing that is coming up, and it needs to be developed in Versa. This is the only thing that needs to be adapted very quickly by Versa. With the pandemic going on, I would like to see more features for working from home. They have launched Versa Secure Access (VSA), but it is currently immature. They need to tighten it up for work from home and SD-WAN concept."
"Some of the service providers that use VeloCloud as their SD-WAN should be enabled to have better global visibility."
"It needs better security."
"They need more gateways"
"In an upcoming release, the solution can be more functional and have additional features."
"VeloCloud needs improvement in terms of its security features."
"The solution doesn't offer failover between their own devices. If I want to, I should be able to put the two devices at the side, so there can be a failover."
"The initial setup could be simplified for beginners."
"They should provide us with the flexibility to scale up."

Versa FlexVNF is a multi-service, multi-tenant software platform built from ground up on cloud principles to deliver scale, segmentation, programmability and automation. It provides both networking and security functions in a single software along with service chaining capabilities.
Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is the application of softwarebased network technologies that virtualize WAN connections to provide agility,
performance and reliability for network traffic between remote and branch offices to
data centers and the cloud.
SD-WAN leverages cloud-hosting to simplify deployment and management of
network devices and employs traffic steering to applications in the data center and
the cloud. It combines the bandwidth of broadband with existing WAN connections to
more efficiently and cost-effectively connect users to data center and cloud-based
applications from any location in the network.
SD-WAN optimizes traffic over multiple available connections (MPLS, broadband,
LTE) to deliver traffic across the network, delivering a better user experience to any
location. SD-WAN will dynamically steer traffic to the best available link, and if the
available links show any transmission issues, it will immediately apply remediation for
jitter and packet loss based on policies to ensure performance of the high-priority
