The Meraki Z3 is an enterprise security appliance designed for distributed deployments that require remote administration. It is ideal for network administrators who demand both ease of deployment and a state-of-the-art feature set.
The Meraki Z-series of telecommuting gateways has expanded with the Meraki Z3, a low-cost solution to the security issues brought on by telecommuting. This surprisingly functional multi-purpose piece of equipment contains everything a stay-at-home worker would need to securely connect to the main office network via VPN while also supporting their own productivity. Additionally, with its small size and easy portability, the Z3 would be an excellent option for temporary remote deployments for traveling workers, such as in hotels or at trade shows, who don’t want to sacrifice security while working remotely.
