Cisco Meraki MX100
The Meraki MX100 firewall shares the Meraki family DNA for being super easy to use!
The MX100 is one of Meraki’s mid-tier firewalls. This friendly, easy-to-setup appliance puts non-IT types at ease with it’s ‘snap’ deployment. The MX100 is easy to configure even for people who have never done so before. Additionally, their tech support gets high marks. Plus, the MX100 is completely cloud-managed. Therefore, it gets all of its firmware upgrades through an SSL connection. The VPN can be set up in about 5 minutes.
Okay, it’s easy to use. But what can the Meraki MX100 do?
The MX100 has Stateful Firewall Throughput of up to 750 Mbps and VPN Throughput of 500 Mbps. It also has Advanced Security Throughput of 650 Mbps. Additionally, it can support up to 500 users and 250 VPN tunnels.
What about features?
For one thing, the Meraki MX100 sports internally integrated SD-WAN technology. That adds networking ability to the mix that not all firewalls have. That’s not only a convenience, but a potential savings, as well. It definitely simplifies life for the non-IT professionals this appliance was designed for.
You also get all the great features common to Meraki security appliances. Besides the stateful inspection firewall, it also boasts auto-configuring site-to-site VPN services, and IPSec client VPN. Meraki has one of the easiest VPNs to deploy on the market. Identity based policies can also be easily configured, which is critical for BYOD environments.
