Hybridge understands that a strong and secure network is imperative to keep your business running. This is why we use the best equipment when designing your network. We work with a number of different vendors and brands, but Cisco Meraki is our go-to solution for demanding and complex environments. In fact, Hybridge is one of the largest Meraki partners in Silicon Valley and San Francisco.

If you are a Hybridge client, you have most likely heard us talk about Meraki Firewall and Access Points. But what exactly is Meraki and why is it our number one choice?

A Little Background

The word Meraki means something done with the soul, creativity, and love. Meraki was founded in 2006 and purchased by Cisco in December 2012. They have many different solutions and equipment including: wireless, switches, network security, systems manager (MDM), communication, and security cameras. These solutions are all managed from the cloud.

Why Cisco Meraki?

Meraki provides a unique combination of security, manageability, analytics, and value for your money. Because of this, Hybridge utilizes Meraki’s wireless and network security solutions for every network infrastructure we design. Both solutions offer exactly what you need for your network.
