Pros
"The two-factor login is great. I receive a message and just have to press okay.""It is a good solution for hybrid environments and VPN.""It meets our security needs very well. It is easy to use, and documentation is also available. It is also very stable and scalable, and its support is also very good. We are satisfied with this solution.""The multi-factor authentication process and the geo-locking features are great.""The push notifications and the integrations they offer are valuable. Their mobile app is very useful. It is very easy to use."

"It helps to quickly get access to the pages I need.""Their split tunneling feature has been very valuable to our company since implementing the Perimeter 81 solution.""The solution provides us with an easy way to configure and join the VPN with Perimeter 81.""It connects quickly and stays connected.

Cons
"The dashboard needs to be improved.""We had some trouble with the password reset function.""Certain customers can not use this product because it is cloud-based.""Its documentation must be in French because we are a French-speaking country. They should also provide more training documentation. Its management interface should also be improved. They should also improve its update period. If I compare its update period with other products such as Palo Alto firewalls, this solution is really slow in updates.""The only time I really had some negative feedback for them was about the UI of their mobile app, but they improved it in the last version. It is good on the functionality side, but their pricing model is a little bit weird. Currently, there is no price advantage in signing up for yearly contracts. If you are on a monthly term or a yearly contract, you basically pay the same price, and that is very unusual. Normally, there is a discount when someone signs up for the 12-month system."

"I would suggest adding more networking and security features that allow more customization within their platform.""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.""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."
