SonicWall TZ Review

Its easier to deploy and configure than other options, but the GUI configurations and menus are not intuitive.

What is most valuable?

The affordability.

How has it helped my organization?

It's provided security and a VPN connection.

What needs improvement?

GUI configurations and menus are not intuitive, thus making it difficult to identify dependent configurations completion.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used it for two years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

In most cases no issues, except a few times when the External Interface would not take a public dynamic IP address.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

There were some issues, when the firewall would work for six months straight, and then cause VPN slowness, which was resolved right after a reboot. Not many companies allow themselves to have such downtime.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues encountered.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Service is great.

Technical Support:

Service is great.

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

We previously used a mix of WatchGuard and Cisco firewalls. We switched because Dell offered an affordable, stable, flexible option that is easier to deploy and configure.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
