SonicWall SMA Review

Stable with good technical support, but the management interfaces need to be consolidated


What is our primary use case?

We are a system integrator and SonicWall SMA is one of the products that we implement for our clients. They use it to protect their data.

What needs improvement?

We need to keep applying updates that are supplied from the OEM.

On the customer's side, we have a centralized system. There is software to manage their security appliance, as well as their network appliance, and they have some kind of endpoint security. The problem is that when combined with what the client already has, there are two different logins and two different management systems, and these should be consolidated into a single interface.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been working with SonicWall SMA for 13 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is a stable product.

How are customer service and technical support?

I am very satisfied with the technical support.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We also work with Fortinet products.

How was the initial setup?

The length of time for deployment depends on the customer and their environment.

What about the implementation team?

I have a team of four people who handle the implementation for our clients.

What other advice do I have?

This is definitely a product that I can recommend to others.

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
