Quotes From Members

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.""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."

"It has certainly helped out our audit efforts because we each stay compliant in terms of various security standards.""Technical support is very responsive. You just have to open a ticket. They respond in a timely manner. Their response is good. I'm satisfied.""They manage to solve detection quite nicely. There is some rather elaborate detection compared to other providers.""The most valuable feature is Click-time URL protection.""All of the solution's features are quite valuable for us. We especially like the threat protection it provides.""Endpoint to network protects the line.""The incident management on the solution is very good. You get a lot of detailed information about an incident. You also get a lot of documentation in connection with the CVI or integration."

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.""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."

"An improvement could be made on the reporting because then it would be easier to collect information and submit it for compliance.""The administration interface needs a lot of improvement. It should be UI based, and simple. They need to improve it. It's pretty much not that friendly compared to what we were using as Bitdefender before. It's okay but is improving, actually.""It's a strange situation where the infrastructure of the consumer or customer is behind some kind of firewall and they have always used some kind of customized proxy. In this situation, the ATP has a very tough time to pass the information to the cloud and back. To fix, it requires a more elaborate and complex configuration for that particular case.""There are limits with respect to blocking files by hash value or blocking IP addresses, and these limits should be removed.""The cloud platform needs to have improvement in terms of the user interface and the different capabilities it has available. It needs to match the other leading next-gen EDR products that are available in the market. That's the reason why we are stepping away from Symantec. Their cloud environment is just generally lacking in comparison to others.""Not ideal for advanced threat protection.""Symantec appliances need improvement. The whole appliance environment is a robust system and it needs a massive amount of storage space. If you have to increase or speed up the background storage it's a pretty complicated process. The scalability and sizing is critical, and if you do it wrong you run into issues pretty quickly."

Pricing and Cost Advice

Customers benefit from high security effectiveness, fast response times and reduced total cost of ownership.

Symantec Advanced Threat Protection is a single unified solution that uncovers, prioritizes, and remediates advanced attacks. The product fuses intelligence from endpoint, network, and email control points, as well as Symantec’s massive global sensor network, to stop threats that evade individual security products.
