Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"A lot of times one of the AppNeta transactions showed that there is an issue, whereas everything seemed to be working properly. Once we dug into it, we realized that it really was highlighting a problem that otherwise we would not have seen."

More AppNeta Pros →

"Versa Director's best feature is the ease of configuration and customer and vendor management.""The most valuable functionality is some of the policy pieces that are quite useful."

More Versa Director Pros →

Cons
"Having to deal with configuring the end devices using a USB stick is a bit cumbersome. It would be nice if there was a better way of handling that."

More AppNeta Cons →

"It requires some simplification.""Versa Director's deployment process is not the best."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "I inherited this from a different version, and I haven't yet gone through a renewal because we had purchased three years upfront. So, to me, that still remains to be seen. Once it comes up for renewal, we'll see what happens. Especially because now it is Broadcom, it is going to change anyway."
  • More AppNeta Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "Having to buy separate licenses for the on-prem SD-WAN hardware and SSL VPN software makes Versa Director very costly compared to other solutions like Fortinet and Cisco."
