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

Pros
Provides good protection and security.The ATP (Advanced Threat Protection) on scanning is the most valuable feature.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 stability of the solution is good. We haven't had any breaches or crashes. It's been very stable for us.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 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.

The most valuable feature is Click-time URL protection.They manage to solve detection quite nicely. There is some rather elaborate detection compared to other providers.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.It has certainly helped out our audit efforts because we each stay compliant in terms of various security standards.Real-time threat analysis is quick and takes action on threats immediately.The great advantage in using this product is it creates multiple services.Currently we have 800-plus nodes connected with this solution, without any issues.

Cons
Could provide online training to allow customers to learn more about the product.The setup needs improvement. It needs to be made more user-friendly.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.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.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.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.

There are limits with respect to blocking files by hash value or blocking IP addresses, and these limits should be removed.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.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.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
When you compare it with other solutions, they are cheaper and more economical.We get our value for our money.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.
