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.

Cons
As a firewall and 360 degrees of security, there needs to be more maturity.The initial setup was complex.I think it would be nice for Palo Alto to work without the connection to the cloud. It is 100% powerful when connected to the cloud. But, if you disconnect from the cloud, you only get 40-50% power.I would give this product a rating of 9 out of 10 due to some slight issues of performance.They should make their user interface a little more user-friendly.​The VPN and decryption need improvement.​They provide a medium level of technical support.The data analytical system for deployment needs to improve.

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
It is a reasonable price compared to other solutions on the market.The pricing is OK, it is not too expensive.​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.
