I rate the solution a nine out of ten. The product may be complex for users with few years of experience, but overall, it is a simple product to use.

We have six environments and we integrate them with the directory services of Microsoft Azure. Authentication of credentials is done automatically, including for new employees. Maintenance is also done automatically. This solution is very easy to implement and is very intuitive. When we do demos with our clients, they say, "Wow, is it that easy?" Cato offer a full package that can cover online, offline and whatever the customer needs. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

We are a reseller of the product. I would recommend this product to others. I'd rate the solution, overall, at a seven out of ten. If the security on offer was better, I would rate it higher.

It is worth looking at for a small to medium size environment, but it has got to fit your situation. We don't use it for what it was really made to do. It just has one feature that affects us, so we use it for that. In all honesty, it is not something that we are really using to its full potential. I would rate Cato Networks an eight out of ten. It is fairly new, so there are some things that it should do, and they're working on it.

My advice for anybody who is looking into Cato is to consider their environment. If they have a scenario where it is 80% cloud-based and 20% internal traffic, then Cato is a good choice. If on the other hand, they have internal applications with a data center then other solutions may make more sense. For us, since we are fully cloud-based, it is a better choice. In summary, it is easy to implement and easy to manage. That said, there are always ways to improve. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.

It's a cloud solution. It has local hardware, but it's a could solution. If it's a good use case for you, then it's a good solution. Cato Networks seems to do everything we wanted it to do. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

If you really want to have a solution that has an easy deployment and provides SD-WAN and firewall abilities, go with Cato Networks. I would rate it an eight out of ten. Not a ten because they don't offer a VPN for the firewall. They should add more sophisticated security features. It should also be integrated into the cloud.

The price is not an issue for us, as it is priced more competitively than some other vendors.

If you compare with VeloCloud, the price is the same or even cheaper. Also, they include all of the security features, unlike VeloCloud.
