SonicWall NSA Benefits

For the average SMB, this firewall does the job. Granular user controls, firewall and NAT rules that you would expect. Licensed features provide application control, content filtering, antivirus, and anti-malware all in a single appliance. Be aware that their ATP is poorly implemented (stops downloads, forcing users to wait and click again). Also be aware that the IPS/IDS, and Gateway Antivirus will do very little for modern threats such as ransomware. We have had emotet trojans easily pass the firewall, connect to international foreign (and obviously) some kind of C&C without stopping it. So little to no protection against modern threats, no HTTPS proxy as an option, poorly implemented ATP - it makes the case for a SonicWall very difficult to justify. This vendor is frustratingly slow at adapting, evolving or improving their product. They are unable to keep up with competition. View full review »

Our old firewall was running as HA (High Availability) on two different but identical rack mounted servers. Moving to SonicWall allowed the company to move to one unit, yet accommodate more connections because it had sixteen ports and handled fail-over better than the old firewall solution.
