Cisco Meraki Features
Cisco Meraki has built-in analytics and intelligence that enables a Network Manager to have full visibility of Wi-Fi network usage across the business, down to a specific user’s browsing activity. The Network Manager is then able to make restrictions.
Layer 7 visibility technology comes out of the box with Cisco Meraki. Previously, this was only available through overlay appliances which are costly but is included with Meraki products at no additional cost. All traffic to and from the management interface is sent through an encrypted and secure traffic layer. Your business can also be confident that Meraki complies to applicable data laws such as GDPR and ISO 20071.
The Cisco Meraki service has multiple global highly redundant, secure datacentres which ensures that you are never without access to the network environment. Two-factor authentication can also be enabled to add an extra layer of security to an organisations network by requiring access to an administrator’s phone, in addition to their username and password in order to access Cisco Meraki cloud services at no additional cost.
Management traffic is segregated from the regular network communication, which limits any malicious attempts to the management interface. AirMarshal is Meraki’s own intrusion prevention solution which looks for threats over the wireless network and neutralises them. AirMarshal is integrated into every Cisco Meraki Access Point proving flexible, intuitive and state of the art protection from cyber threats.
Cisco Meraki products are automatically updated with the latest features and firmware.
Automatic updates come as standard with any Cisco Meraki Cloud dashboard-enabled devices. Patches, firmware updates and new features are rolled out each quarter for no additional cost, with updates also being able to be triggered manually. This means that your business is never left without the latest software and updates as well as being safe and secure.
As the Meraki is a Cloud-managed platform, its possible to access your network even when you’re not in the office. Not only can the Meraki Cloud Dashboard be accessed by any internet-enabled device, it is also always available which means in the event of a network outage or incident that brings any part of your network down. Another Cisco Meraki benefit is that the dashboard will always be able to serve your business.
