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

Pros
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.

Cons
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.

An improvement could be made on the reporting because then it would be easier to collect information and submit it for compliance.There are some ‎features that would add value to this product. One of them would be a graphical presentation of threats that the system has encountered.It should be able to collect information if the agent is disabled.It also needs network-based threat protection for shared folders and files.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.
