Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"Their technical support responds quickly and are knowledgable.""The most valuable features are its ingestion of logs and raising of alerts based on those logs.""The most valuable feature is the ability to write rules and triggers for network communication, and then being able to investigate based on that.""It's fully scalable. There is no limit. Of course, the license limits per day the number of terabytes. In my opinion, it's very flexible.""The most valuable features are the packet decoder, log decoder, and concentrator.""The most valuable feature is that we can create our own connectors for any application, and NetWitness provides the training and tools to do it.""The most valuable features are the integration and ease of use.""Performance and reporting are very good."

"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.""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 stability of the solution is good. We haven't had any breaches or crashes. It's been very stable for us.""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 ATP (Advanced Threat Protection) on scanning is the most valuable feature.""Provides good protection and security.""It also has an easy configuration. The feedback that we get from our customers is that it's a good product."

Cons
"The initial setup was complex because it takes a lot of time to complete the implementation.""I'd like to see improvement in its ease of use. It's basically unusable. It's overly complex.""The system looks like it is a mix of a bunch of different systems, and nothing looked like it was quite together.""They should implement algorithms to digest that data and produce additional, more advanced reporting, alerting and support of internal security teams.""Log aggregation is an issue with this solution because there are a huge number of alerts in a single instance.""The initial setup is very complex and should be simplified.""The documentation is not as structured as I would like, personally, and I think that it can be improved and made much more user-friendly.""The user interface is a little bit difficult for new users and it needs to be improved."

"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.""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.""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.""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.""The setup needs improvement. It needs to be made more user-friendly.""Could provide online training to allow customers to learn more about the product.""I would like to have better documentation before starting with deployment because the deployment is a bit complex."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The licenses are good but the cost is very expensive.""This is a pricey solution; it's not cheap.""We have a perpetual license, so the total cost of ownership is not very expensive. It's a good investment.""Many clients are not able to purchase the packet capability because there is a huge amount of data, and the cost depends on the number of EPS (Events per second), as well as the number of gigabytes of data per day.""Our license is for one year."

"When you compare it with other solutions, they are cheaper and more economical.""We get our value for our money.""It's thirty dollars per user and we have 30 users."
