New QR code generator, multi-site and site-to-site VPN, and why WiFi 6 makes such a difference
Welcome to the November newsletter
This month’s newsletter features some great new products and features for Meraki Go!
First we recently launched a QR code generator for small business owners. It’s free - in contrast to many others - and allows for customization. We’ve included best practices below along with 8 ways to consider using QR codes in your marketing.
And we’re still excited about last month’s launch of our WiFi 6 indoor and outdoor access points. We sold out quickly, but have new inventory back in stock for you. Below you’ll find an article on WiFi 6 and why it makes such a difference to small businesses.
Finally, we’re excited to announce that our Router Firewall Plus now offers multi-site and site-to-site VPN. Cybersecurity is one of the highest priorities for business owners, so we share how VPN gives you additional protection while also allowing your team to access company resources from anywhere.
QR codes have become increasingly important to small businesses, so we launched Meraki Go's new QR code generator! Unlike many others, it's free and never expires. It's also secure - backed by Cisco - and never stores your info.
QR codes have come a long way since they were first developed in 1994. 45% of U.S. shoppers used a marketing QR code in 2021 and that number only continues to grow. We share how to make them a powerful marketing tool for your business.
Why WiFi 6 Makes a Difference for Small Businesses
More than 90% of people currently access the internet through mobile devices. In addition, we must support a growing number of connected devices in our businesses - from employees to customers. WiFi 6 addresses the need for increased capacity along with other benefits.
Virtual Private Networks and Why Your Business Needs One
Since March 2020, VPN use has increased 66% in the United States and surged 165% worldwide. Meraki Go now offers multi-site and site-to-site VPN, and we explore why this is critical for small businesses with multiple locations.
Female founders are a force. There has been a 114% increase in women entrepreneurs in the last 20 years and they now contribute $1.9 trillion to the economy. We celebrate their impact in honor of Women’s Entrepreneur Day on November 19.
For added security, set up multi-factor authentication (MFA) on Meraki Go. MFA protects your network by adding another identifying step on top of your username and password. Once enabled, all administrators in your account will be required to set up MFA, too.
Meet the increasing demands of the hybrid business model with Meraki.
