As the size of the remote workforce skyrockets due to COVID-19, the ability to provide reliable, secure connections to employees at any location is increasingly crucial. This need for scalability, mobility, and security regardless of location is driving an unprecedented demand for quality, cloud-enabled IT solutions for newly remote teams. Cisco Meraki is rapidly addressing these new demands with recently announced incentives for their partners who are likely fielding more requests than ever for remote work support.
To help partners navigate conversations with customers who are increasingly concerned about the need to work remotely but securely, Meraki is introducing a set of discounts for their entire family of security products (MX and MI).
“Meraki’s firewall solution essentially creates a virtual tunnel between an at-home work station and the office’s network, ensuring that employees experience the same level of security at home that they would in the office,” explained Ezequiel Rios, Comstor Product Business Manager for Cisco Meraki.
Rios further explained that because Meraki has been a fully cloud-enabled solution since its inception, the transition toward a more remote workforce is seamless for end-users. “It’s truly zero-touch provisioning,” said Rios. “Employees can plug in a Meraki appliance straight out-of-the-box and experience the same performance level as they would in an office setting. IT teams also benefit from this level of access and visibility, making their support efforts on par with what they could offer in-person.”
Meraki is also currently conducting their “First Year on Us” promotion through July 25, 2020. This promotion offers any partner who purchases a new Cisco Meraki cloud management license for three years or more an additional year on their license at no extra cost.
