SonicWall NSA Other Advice

Do your homework. Go to your website, compare firewalls, not only SonicWall, not only Fortigate. Compare them for the task that it needs to run for your company. That's the bottom line. There are small firewalls which will suffice for certain companies. You might need bigger ones, you might need more features. So really, you have to do your homework. I work in an African country, knowledge is something they are still gaining, and SonicWall is too difficult for most people to manage, versus a Fortigate where it's really a step-through and you know what you're doing, you can see what you're doing. You can't really see that on a SonicWall. It's very hard to manage this box. You really need a lot of skills to operate the SonicWall. There is training and the like, but it's just hard to manage. Even if you have the knowledge, there are too many options. The menus are not very clear, where you should find the information. View full review »

Easy to manage and work with. Support has improved dramatically since their separation from Dell (North American-based tech support). Version 6.5 finally brings a fresh, redesigned interface, and some features that other firewalls have had for sometime (i.e., DNS Proxy). View full review »

This product is not as well known as some others because it is not marketed as well as it could be. My advice for others who are implementing the solution is to do the sizing well. If it is done correctly then there will not be any problems. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten. View full review »

It does everything that they say it does. It works. The most important factors when choosing a new solution are * price * functionality * security of the device. I would rate SonicWall a 10 out of 10. It's the only firewall that we predominantly use for our customers. View full review »
