Pros
"It's very easy to just keep adding devices as needed.""I have found the location analytics feature that is built into the APs to be the most valuable. It allows you to compare data and to single out individuals who are repeatedly coming into your store. We can observe different trends. This is what separates it from a lot of the other solutions.""The cloud manager is user-friendly, and I can manage everything from one dashboard.""Initial setup was easy.""The most significant benefit is that the deployment is quick and painless. You don't need a specialized IT department to implement and scale the network. It's easy to maintain, too. It only requires one or two network administrators.""The solution is simple.""The solution is straightforward to set up.""Meraki Systems Manager's most valuable features are password management, device tracking, remote resetting and wiping, device management, inventory management, and easy policy deployment."

"They always add more features to this product.""The security features work well.""One of the most valuable features of Sophos Mobile is the Wifi password.""In terms of valuable features, we liked the lock feature, the roll-out white feature, and the find feature.

You can easily manage all of your mobile devices."

Cons
"There are problems with the connection on the client side, and the app that was deployed could be better.""The cost of installing this solution can be more expensive depending on who is doing the installation. Cisco is very expensive, and I'd like to see a reduction in cost.""They need to allocate more energy in terms of their offering to devices that are not Apple devices.""Linux compatibility needs improvement.""The price of the solution could be reduced.""The solution can be expensive.""System's compatibility with Google Chrome could be improved.""Cisco's authorized scripting can be complicated. For example, we sometimes enter the wrong code using this script, and then we had to dictate to find the problem."

"In terms of what could be improved, the initial configuration and setup of the environment could probably be made a little bit easier. There are so many pieces that go into it. Intune is absolutely insane and Sophos is better, but it still is a bit complex to get it all set up correctly.""It could be more secure.""They continue to work on integration with mobile device management and mobile security. They are improving the protection but I think that the capabilities still need to be enhanced.""To manage the Apple devices is not that straightforward there are a lot of features the other third parties solutions are offering which Sophos Mobile is not.""The features of Sophos Mobile could improve. The way the system works together could be better. Additionally, the integration with other Sophos products could improve."
