Useful remote worker VPN, centralized management, and simple on-boarding process
We are using Cato Networks primarily to secure our connectivity between branch offices and remote workers Prior to using Cato Networks we had to buy individual licenses for our remote users for VPN, and the VPN was not always-on, they had to remember to turn it on and remember to turn it off.…

Efficiently monitoring and detecting suspicious activities
One valuable feature of ConnectWise Fortify is the ability to add other teams and receive notifications when customers make changes or remove multi-factor authentication in Microsoft or SAP environments. For instance, once we were connecting different parts in China, and we had to reserve resources for the blue source of the login of task no v. ConnectWise Fortify successfully mitigated the issue and monitored any suspicious activity in the Microsoft environment. Despite the inconvenience, the Microsoft environment is still active and susceptible to cyber threats. We do a lot of research and utilize ConnectWise Fortify to restart and restore the system. It's essential to have a solution like ConnectWise Fortify to protect against cyber threats.

Quotes from Members

Pros

"The product is very simple, and everything can be done very quickly."

"The most valuable feature of Cato Networks is the CASB and the documentation is useful."
"The tool's advantage is that it provides a hassle-free solution that is easy to manage across all customers. For instance, we have a few customers with as few as 50 users, including one with a branch in Vietnam and others with thousands of users."
"The WAN aggregation feature is the most valuable."
"We appreciate the optimization and acceleration of the performance of SDP users."
"I haven't had any trouble, and practically forget that I'm using it."
"The product is efficient and easy to use."
"We have found the solution has great functionality and it is easy to use."
"One valuable feature of ConnectWise Fortify is the ability to add other teams and receive notifications when customers make changes or remove multi-factor authentication in Microsoft or SAP environments."
 

Cons

"There's no principal in Malaysia, only a distributor."
"The solution could be made more user friendly for the administrator to use the portal. It is difficult to use it for people who are not experienced with Cato Networks."
"Cato Networks could improve their intrusion detection. There is not a lot in place."
"The product must evolve into the endpoint domain."
"We would like the product to continue to improve its security."
"Web application firewalling (WAF) is a feature we would like to have in this solution and does not exist yet."
"The solution is not cheap."
"They should include a web application firewall feature in the solution."
"The manage portion of the solution is complicated and should be simplified by having different versions to meet the needs of different size companies."
"ConnectWise Fortify could work on covering more areas, like phishing messages, which have become more complicated to detect."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"Cato Networks seems more expensive than Cisco Meraki."
"The pricing is on the higher side, almost an eight out of ten."
"The pricing of this solution depends on what you need. It is based on bandwidth."
"The solution has reasonable pricing. It has a yearly subscription. The pricing depends on the permit to code. Sometimes, we need to increase the permit, and the cost will automatically change. There's no fixed cost. Unless we request additional modules such as DNS security, ELP, and decent features, there will be no additional cost."
"The price is not an issue for us, as it is priced more competitively than some other vendors."
"The solution is reasonably priced since Cato Networks provides features like SASE and monitoring, which I am very happy with currently."
"If you compare with VeloCloud, the price is the same or even cheaper."
"I rate the price of Cato Networks a four out of five."
"The solution is expensive."
