"The most valuable feature of Pulse Client is integration with Google authenticator for two-factor authentication."
"NetExtender works very well. I never had an issue with it, and it has been working well for me. In terms of management, you have good control over the destination. You can use NetExtender to set the policy and the static route for a client. You can modify it based on what your client needs or can access. You have good control over routing."
"Employees can have access to the network from home."
"The initial setup is pretty straightforward."

"SonicWall can be difficult for some people, but I don't find it difficult. Some companies provide a VPN client for free, but you have to pay for NetExtender."
"The solution takes up a lot of bandwidth."
"The Netextender application itself doesn't really look pretty, however, we can still use it. We don't care what it looks like. That said, if they did a cosmetic update, that would be fine."
"They need to rewrite the software to make it a usable product."
"There must be a multi-factor authentication enabled or integrated by default with it in order to be integrated with NetExtender."
