"First and foremost, it enables the customer to deploy high availability connections. This kind of solution enables them to deploy these HA connections for policies mostly automatically. It's a more automated approach than with other vendors."
"The most valuable feature is the support for asymmetric lines."
"We had several clients that were paying $7,500 a month for an MPLS line for one single 10 megabit circuit and we were able to take that from $7,500 a month down to $500 a month for two 10 megabits circuits that added redundancy where before they did not have redundancy and it gave them a much better throughput."
"It is very easy to deploy. The GUI interface is really good, and the security features are also very good. It is also stable and scalable, and their support is also good."
"The most valuable aspects of the solution are the next-generation firewall features and geo-blocking capabilities."
"The division of Control Plane and Data Plane is most valuable. It can be deployed anywhere, and you can control it and configure it from anywhere. This is one of the good features of this solution."
"The flexibility is a great feature."
"There are great security and ops features without the need for having a different box for security."
"Overall, it's nice and very user friendly. That's what makes it so successful. They give you complicated features but with a very simple user interface, and that's been a big success for them."
"The solution is stable and suitable."
"Their dashboard is also a good point for us and the customer. The solution is very clean and easy."
"They have to implement more security with it. The security, mainly their firewall functions, have to be included in the firewall features."
"The security can be improved, with the firewall for example, because they supply a basic one but not a UTM."
"Their WAN optimization in terms of wireless connectivity doesn't have a very good cellular capability."
"The security should be improved."
"We are thinking about how to make customers consolidate the loads to an SD-WAN network so that the customers can have bigger chunk from the SD-WAN side so that customers can have critical data be transferred with NPS VPN and non-critical data or some labeled traffic can be transferred by the SD-WAN network. I think it's a very important direction for digital transformation."
"I heard about them for the first time just before I started working on Versa. They do have blogs for information, but they could publicize more about the documentation and architecture. It doesn't seem to have that much exposure, and they should work on their customer base more."
"Future releases should contain AI for the voice feature."
"The smaller units lack a lot of functionality."
"With the pandemic and changing work models, it would be ideal if the product more accessibility options or more diversity within the solution itself."
"Another thing that should be improved in Versa are their firewall features."
"The support needs to be improved."
