SonicWall NSA Review

Valuable features include the web filter, DHCP, and monitoring capabilities

What is our primary use case?

Our network has 150 users. We have two internet connections, an IPsec VPN, a DHCP server, a DMZ, WiFi, access controls and a load balancer, and two appliances with HA.

How has it helped my organization?

It is a good product, but very modular and with native resources which are much lower than its competitors. 

What is most valuable?

  • Web filter
  • DHCP
  • Monitoring capabilities
  • IPsec VPN and other security controls
  • Integration with the active directory and other security controls (IPS and IDS).

What needs improvement?

  • Load balance algorithms
  • Resource usage graphs (throughput, connections, external accesses, and the possibility to export the content of the address object).

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Additional resources are too expensive.
