What needs improvement?

At the moment it seems to be pretty good. I can't compare it to the competitors' products out there at the moment. I'm aware of Sophos Sandboxing, Sophos Sandstorm product as a similar solution. The advantage of the SonicWall product is… more»

So far, we haven't been hit with anything, which is good.

What needs improvement?

It does fare well against enterprise products.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

SonicWall came out with a new add-on. It was inexpensive to add-on to the existing product that we already owned, so we added it. The best deal from SonicWall is to buy… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We are a SonicWall reseller. We were working with this product before it was bought by Dell, and even after they were purchased by Dell. The capture was just an add-on to… more»

What other advice do I have?

It is for a small to medium sized customer. I think there is a network between the vendors where something that becomes known to one becomes known to all.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I'm seeing a lot of our locations changing out and moving toward Fortinet. I think it's because Fortinet is selling more than just a firewall. They are selling the total… more»

Also, in terms of optimizing network traffic for specific applications that may need it more than… more»

What needs improvement?

I would say the solution needs a much simpler user interface, but the functionality of the firewall is quite extensive. You do need the user interface to be that way, however, if there was a way to figure out how to make the user interface a little easier, that would be great. Right now, you can… more»

What other advice do I have?

We work with the on-premises version of the solution. I would recommend the solution. It works for all sizes of business and they have different versions of the firewall for different sizes of companies. They have TZ400 for larger companies. It goes up depending on the scale of the business you are… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I did try Sophos. I was told to try Fortinet as well but I didn't end up evaluating the solution.

What is most valuable?

So far, the solution has been fine for us. We are using it as a firewall.

How has it helped my organization?

We have not had any breaches or problems since implementing this solution. It has served us well.

What needs improvement?

There isn't any module or feature that I would say is deficient or is lacking. For us, it's just fine. 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.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is manageable. It's not expensive. We're a small business, and for our needs, it's fine.

What other advice do I have?

We only use SonicWall for our protection. We don't use any other solutions. For the past four and a half years, we haven't had any breaches or issues of any kind. I would rate the solution eight out of ten.

The most valuable feature is the alerting system. For a small to medium customer, it is a cost-effective value. It does all the basic requirements. It fulfills all of our requirements. We get alert messages whenever there is a new threat… more»

What needs improvement?

SonicWall should promote their roadmap and improve their marketing to customers. The support is good, but there is room for improvement. We would like to get immediate alerts from the alerting system without using third-parties.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It provides value for money spent.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We are also using Cisco IronPort for Microsoft Office 365 and email.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

When you compare it with other solutions, they are cheaper and more economical. SonicWall covers most of the things.

What is most valuable?

This is a solid solution that fills the requirements. The ATP (Advanced Threat Protection) on scanning is the most valuable feature.

What needs improvement?

The setup needs improvement. It needs to be made more user-friendly. They don’t offer training for this solution. Instead, you have to jump in and figure it out and rely on Google searches for everything you want to learn about.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We have been using SonicWall for six years. I don’t know what they were using prior to that.

What other advice do I have?

We do not have a business relationship with SonicWall, we are customers. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
