It just works.""The ability to add multiple two-factor authentication options for the user to choose from when they log in has helped increase the security of our network, especially with so many people working remotely.""Some of the main features of the solution are it has the ability to integrate with our Active Directory to allow each user to have one less password to have to remember and it has great functionality."

Cons
"I think that the addition of single sign-on functionality would be helpful.""The support could be more proactive in their recommendations. I noticed that the Cisco support agents tend to leave customers to do what they need to do in many ways, and you can choose how you want to do it. However, it would be great if they could proactively be involved in best practices and let other customers know how most people are doing it.""The setup could be simplified for solutions engineers with a wizard.""Even when your internet speed is good, once you connect to the VPN the speed gets automatically reduced, which is worrisome.""Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client could improve by optimizing the use of the system resources, it is heavy on the resources. Additionally, there could be more transparency.""Sometimes when you are on the VPN, it can be a little bit slow.""The setup is a bit difficult to handle on the server-side.""The configuration from the client-side would be useful. Right now, it's not centralized. There should be a lock so that it can only be configured from one place."

"If I were to be nitpicky, I would ask that Perimeter 81 offer the option for us to change the color of the graphical user interface, like maybe pink or green or so on.""Currently, I am not able to define a different country or location, which can result in negative experiences as the tool is being recognized by websites and this can make it difficult to access them or force me to disable the program temporarily.""I would suggest adding more networking and security features that allow more customization within their platform.""In order to have to bypass the login using the website, a good feature for Perimeter 81 to have is a login instance in the Perimeter 81 application. I'm using a Mac and we don't have that functionality."
