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.

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
​More expensive than other firewalls.​It is expensive, a feature more accessible to enterprise class customers, but provides an enhanced possibility that Zero- or near-Zero-day threats may be identified and mitigated. The cost of the product weighed against the potential impact of even one successful crypto malware-type exploit may justify the expense.The pricing and licensing option should be categorized for various countries such as for Bangladesh.It's not particularly cheap, but it is absolutely worth it.It IS a bit expensive, but I think you get what you pay for. Value is there.

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.
