Pros
I mostly like the ease of use and the pro features like having company gateways with dedicated IPs in different locations worldwide.
NordLayer makes it easy to implement a company VPN and secure company communications and traffic at a reasonable price. Great customer support makes it even easier.
The UI is very nice and easy to use. Easy to setup and remove access.
Cons
We had a unique situation where we wanted to connect some of our multimedia devices to this service (Firestick, Apple TV), but we were unable to because no app was available to connect these.
The seperation of nord and teams is a little confusing. You can't tell at a glance on the device which "service" is being used.
Sometimes, the network fails to establish connection and we need to reboot the computer to get network back - mainly after application updates.

Remote workstation is great with NordLayer

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

iPhone, Android, Linux, and Macintosh are all supported devices for this VPN, which allowed me to run the same VPN across all of my gadgets and get an excellent connection. Even during a trial version, NordLayer offers the most reliable IP address selection from various countries.

Cons

Currently, the only details accessible are a detailed description of the remote device's CPU and RAM and its connection time. Counting the time spent on a machine or in a group over a given period is problematic. Last week, it was impossible to identify whose computers had been accessed.

Fantastically easy to use but support not always helpful with backend issues

Reviewed 2 years ago

With all staff suddenly working remotely, we needed a secure option that allowed a dedicated gateway for remote staff to use. NordLayer allowed us to configure 50 staff easily and without any major disruption to business thanks to useful team admin interface and ease of setup/installation via the Windows and Linux client.

Pros

The online user interface and the software interface itself are easy enough for all staff to navigate, in particular admin can restrict settings within the app to ensure correct use and reduce tickets from staff having issues connecting.

Cons

Downtime on our dedicated UK Gateway has been frequent enough that we had to provision a backup server located in France which we end up using several times a month. Support not always helpful and tend to refer to basic troubleshooting when clearly a server issue.

Good VPN but lacking features and customisation

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

User interface is very simple and straightforward. Easy to install and deploy. Team management is also easy.

Cons

Having used NordVPN, it seems it has less features. Customer support is very unhelpful. When trying to use other protocols, they don't always work.

Doesn't get in the way of your day today work

Reviewed 2 years ago

Excellent. Easy to setup. Easily forgotten once connected. I never think; will I be able to do my work today? Will I be able to complete my work before the VPN provider kicks me off my dedicated IP? I haven't needed to contact support. As far as I know, we've only had a handful of issues connecting which were solved by a local (home) router reboot.

Pros

We as a team love that NordLayer doesn't get in the way of our work. Previous VPN providers we used were constantly causing issues. Once connected to NordLayer's VPN, you forget that you are connected. This is, in our opinion exactly what a VPN should do.

Cons

The software delivers on everything we need. There's nothing to complain about.

Great solution for site to site connections

Reviewed 8 months ago

It's mostly great. The channel account manager has been helpful, was able to connect me to the right people in support to get me up and running.

Pros

The ability to connect the VPN in a router in order to connect a device to their VPN that otherwise wouldn't support VPN on its own. Their desktop clients are easy enough to use, even on Linux (which is entirely done in the terminal using the command line interface).

Cons

Hard to use without a static IP. I intend on getting a static IP later, but for now I have been holding off. Every time my public IP changes, I need to get level 2 support to update the VPN server to connect to the new IP. They say they'll have a feature in the portal some time next year allowing me as the admin to update it myself, but I'll probably have a static IP by then.
