SonicWall NSa Review

Simple management interface, although the SSL VPN client software needs improvement

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is as a corporate firewall, and to provide security for the network while allowing connectivity between multiple sites. We also use it as a VPN gateway for multiple users via SSL.

How has it helped my organization?

Our old firewall was running as HA (High Availability) on two different but identical rack mounted servers. Moving to SonicWall allowed the company to move to one unit, yet accommodate more connections because it had sixteen ports and handled fail-over better than the old firewall solution.

What is most valuable?

Compact 1u, 1/4 depth size. 16 x 10/100/1000 Mbps ports, fibre ready. Management interface that is relatively simple to figure out.

What needs improvement?

I feel that the SSL VPN client software needs a lot of improvement.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.
