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.

We use it for protection against viruses and ransomware attacks

What is our primary use case?

We use it for protection against viruses and ransomware attacks. People click on stuff that they shouldn't be but do anyway, then we are just hoping the tool catches it before it hits us.

Pros and Cons

  • "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."
  • "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."

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.
