Enables us to select the file if it's malicious and see what triggered it

Pros and Cons

  • "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."
  • "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."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution. Whether it's the SonicWall solution or a competitive product, firewall product solution that has a similar sandboxing type of thing has become quite an essential part of a security footprint. I would recommend clients utilize technology as part of their assisted solution, whether it's SonicWall or it's Sophos or another competing product. They're strong for the small and medium business. They can scale up into the medium enterprise market. They have a strong suite of products. We use the firewall product across all our line of people, and we've had pretty good…

Protects against zero-day threats and has good automation options

What is our primary use case?

We primarily implement the solution for our clients.

Pros and Cons

  • "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."
  • "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."

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 trying to implement it into. I would rate the solution eight out of ten.

Has prevented any security breaches or crashes and has good stability

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case of this solution is for a firewall and to build VPN services.

Pros and Cons

  • "The stability of the solution is good. We haven't had any breaches or crashes. It's been very stable for us."
  • "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 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.

When compared to other solutions, it is cheaper and more economical

What is our primary use case?

We are migrating our firewall to the latest version: NSA 4650. We use this solution on cloud.

Pros and Cons

  • "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."
  • "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."

Has a good configuration but the price should be more competitive

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case of this solution is for security. 

What is most valuable?

It's a good solution but the price is high. It also has an easy configuration. The feedback that we get from our customers is that it's a good product. Our customers are mostly smaller enterprises. 

What needs improvement?

The price should be more competitive.  I would like to have better documentation before starting with deployment because the deployment is a bit complex.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using SonicWall for the last three to four months. 

How are customer service and technical support?

We haven't needed to contact customer support. 

How was the initial setup?

The setup is complex. It takes around one day and two people to…
