Why Cisco Meraki Offers the Best Firewall Option for Businesses

Cisco Meraki firewall

There are many options available to businesses when it comes to network firewalls. Far too often business owners get caught up in the latest and greatest in off-the-shelf networking hardware.

That’s not something we would ever recommend.

Consumer-grade products don’t often provide the reliability a business needs. Many of the latest and greatest pieces of networking security hardware, software and platforms for companies are outlandishly expensive and typically not very user-friendly.

That all changes with Cisco Meraki. This business firewall solution provides a 100% centralized cloud management system. You get greater security, better networking capabilities, and comprehensive application control.

A Comprehensive Security Package

It doesn’t matter the size of your network, how sensitive the information you handle is, or even how much your company is worth. Every network is a potential target for hackers.

The reason Cisco Meraki is the best firewall option for businesses is that it has easy-to-implement security features. They do what they’re supposed to: prevent network intrusions. The Cisco Meraki firewall solution provides:

  • Advanced malware protection
  • Anti-virus and anti-phishing services
  • Automatic intrusion detection and prevention
  • Content filtering tools
  • Firewall rules based on geography

You not only get advanced network security options with this firewall, but the proprietary packet processing engine provides next generation firewall controls. These controls include blocking video streaming websites like Netflix or Amazon Video but still prioritize video conferencing tools and services. Typical firewalls can’t tell the difference between similar websites when filtering for website activities or behaviors. But the Cisco Meraki firewall solution can.

Highly Intuitive Management Dashboard

The largest benefit provided with Cisco Meraki Wireless is the centralized management dashboard. This dashboard acts as your central hub for all things network management. Not only is it easy to use, but you can monitor the overall health of your network 24/7/365.

The dashboard allows your network administrators the ability to view all networked clients, applications and application usage, the amount of bandwidth used by the network user, and then enforce network policies across the board or on a user-by-user basis.

The core benefits of the Cisco Meraki Business Wireless Solution are:

  • Automatic updates
  • A centralized management dashboard
  • Top-of-line unique encryption security
