SonicWall TZ Review

Offers good security and monitoring features


What is most valuable?

I find the security we are able to do with the policies to be valuable. The monitoring is valuable as well.

What needs improvement?

Full monitoring obviously needs to be improved. We need full monitoring covered under the security licensing. The license should include reporting and monitoring. It shouldn't be an add-on, it should just go along with it. They should also make the monitoring easy to manage. Sometimes we need reports. We need some live monitoring decisions on how it's going down. We should take the live report from the SonicWall itself. I want to display the report under our monitor so I can monitor firewalls outside our area.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for six years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's very stable and working fine.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is very scalable. We don't plan to increase the usage right now. We have sufficient coverage. We don't plan future deployment.

How are customer service and technical support?

I've had a good experience with technical support.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We haven't been using a different solution previously. We were using some antivirus software and some firewall software. We decided to implement SonicWall because it has good support and a good reputation in our area.

How was the initial setup?

Initially, the setup is not so straightforward but we managed to make it work. Deployment was not so fast. It has initially taken two days, then after that, an hour or so. You only need one person for deployment.

What about the implementation team?

Initially, we could only implement with the support from the reseller but then afterwards we handled it by ourselves.

What was our ROI?

I've seen great ROI since implementing it.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We considered many products, and afterwards, we found SonicWall to be the best solution.

What other advice do I have?

We're using a variety of different models. The solution is very simple and works great and is working fine in the regions that are here.

I would rate the solution a nine out of 10. If it had better reporting functionality, I would give it a 10.
