371,355 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The Password Upload Utility tool makes it easier when setting up a Safe that contains multiple accounts and has cut down the amount of time that it takes to complete the task.
For a while, there were individual IDs having privileged access. We wanted to restrict that. We implemented the solution so that it can be more of internal control. We can have session recordings happening and reduce our attacks.
There are no issues with scalability. Our clients are very happy to use the product.
We are maintaining compliance in PCI, SOX and HIPPA, which is a big thing. Auditors really like it, and it has made us stay compliant.
We are able to know who is accessing what and when; having accountability.
This solution is quite stable.
The most valuable feature is that it always provides flexibility, password quality and one-time user check-in and check-out.
I really like the PTA (Privileged Threat Analytics). I find this the best feature.
The ATP (Advanced Threat Protection) on scanning is the most valuable feature.
We get alert messages whenever there is a new threat. We are notified at the firewall level that things are blocked, which keeps us in our comfort zone.
The stability of the solution is good. We haven't had any breaches or crashes. It's been very stable for us.
I like this setup for a firewall. You can set things up very easily and you can automate items as well. It's a very robust firewall solution for enterprise as well as small businesses.
The reporting that you get from it is the most valuable feature. You can see it via the appliance itself, and also via the MySonicWall account for the registered device. You are able to select the file if it's malicious, and you can select it in the reporting and see what triggered it, and things like that. I found that to be quite useful.
We use it for protection against viruses and ransomware attacks.
They have a large database of commonly known things that they can catch automatically, then they have anything which is questionable go to the sandbox and be examined there before going into our network.
Currently, in Secure Connect, an end user is required to enter account information manually, and cannot save any of this information for future use.
Integration with the ticketing system should allow any number of fields to be used for validation before allowing a user to be evaluated and able to access a server.
The initial setup of CyberArk is a challenge if you do not have prior experience with it.
Make it easier to deploy.
I think having a distributed architecture would certainly help this solution.
There was a functionality of the solution that was missing. I had noticed it in Beyond Trust, but not in this solution. But, recently they have incorporated something similar.
If we could have some kind of out-of-the box feature that you can simply say "no" so they don't have to go into a development mode, that would a really helpful feature.
Tech support staff can be more proactive.
The setup needs improvement. It needs to be made more user-friendly.
SonicWall should promote their roadmap and improve their marketing to customers.
We would like to get immediate alerts from the alerting system without using third-parties.
If anything at all, it would be some very minor updates that need to be done, but in terms of changes, nothing comes to mind.
I would say the solution needs a much simpler user interface, but the functionality of the firewall is quite extensive. You need the user interface to be that way. However, if there was a way to make the user interface a little easier, that would be great.
Having an on-premise solution as well would be an option for some people, but they'll want to use a cloud solution for their sandboxing. Certain sites would want to keep all the checks done on an on-premise appliance. All the checking, rather than sending that up into a cloud engine.
SonicWall had a recent layoff. This is a concern for us, because now we are missing the local presence from both the engineering and sales side.
It does fare well against enterprise products.
Pricing and Cost Advice
In comparison to other products on the market, CyberArk is a more costly product.
This solution is considered to be more expensive than others out there on the market today.
I do not have any opinions to add about the pricing of the product.
No, I do not have any advice on the price of the product.
Network and security licenses are currently being managed by other outsource vendors, so they are facing some type of problems in the digital aspect.
With reducing the privileged account access, there has been a huge improvement. They are now bringing more accounts on a little at a time.
If you are looking at implementing this solution, buy the training and go to it.
Our risk is definitely significantly lower. Also, our resources are low.
When you compare it with other solutions, they are cheaper and more economical.
We get our value for our money.
The best deal from SonicWall is to buy the HA pair. When you buy the initial one, you receive the second one at a significant discount. If there is an event and something happens to one firewall, then you have the second firewall to roll into. For the price, it's pretty to tough to beat and not a lot of other firewall vendors offer it. You battle for a discount on both. Where with SonicWall, if you buy one, the second one is at half price. It's pretty straightforward.
