A rugged solution capable of defeating advanced threats

What is our primary use case?

I am a consultant. I work with a software dealer in the IT security business. I deployed SonicWall for a customer just last month.

Pros and Cons

  • "It's very simple to use and the support is great."
  • "They should consider upgrading the capabilities within the GUI."

What other advice do I have?

I would definitely recommend SonicWall for their simplicity of use, but if you can configure SonicWall, have a look at Sophos also. Sophos has put a lot of hard work into their connections and the GUI. SonicWall's GUI is slightly lacking compared to Sophos' GUI; however, capabilities-wise, Sophos doesn't have a lead over SonicWall.

Good stability, routing and firewall features

Pros and Cons

What is our primary use case?

We use it for monitoring our web access, providing authentication and for security purposes.

What is most valuable?

We get good usage out of the VPN features and its capability; it is a great feature.

What needs improvement?

In terms of improvement, one of the features we are having a hard time getting a hang of is MAC addressing, like when we assign IP addresses to a specific MAC address. That is something that can be improved. For the next release, I think, it should have better feature integration.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Sophos XG for seven years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is a stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is…
