Hi Bruce, the client involved lost a huge investment when their cloud hosting went belly-up and the data became vulnerable to an external hack. so, they've pulled out from Onedrive and other cloud hosting - except for encrypted backups. The CISO pointed out, correctly, that Meraki depends on Cisco's own hosted web-based password security and protocols, and there's no way to isolate your router from dependency on this if you use a Meraki router. The CISO wanted to be able to say that no individual or company outside their network can manage their routers. Meraki, as you correctly noted, doesn't support that option. So what I told the customer IS accurate and valid. Again, I did not recommend this strategy to them. But I do agree if they are going with a Low/No-Cloud security posture, they will need a new router.
