Our operation depends heavily on Internet access and we depend on a solution that can provide us with productivity and security for the continuity of our business. With this need, we implemented a SonicWall NSA firewall to control all access to and from the Internet.
The primary use cases for this solution are protection and for a VPN.
Our primary use case is as a corporate firewall, and to provide security for the network while allowing connectivity between multiple sites. We also use it as a VPN gateway for multiple users via SSL.
It's for firewalls and content filtering. It performs pretty much faultlessly for us.
The NSA 2400 is used as our edge device. We subscribe to two services. * Comprehensive Gateway Security Suite * Anti Spam Service
Primary use is Office 365, all our users have cloud-based email. The rest is business emails, business procurement, etc. And if users are on after hours and they want to see more, we allow it, but still, blocking is difficult on the SonicWall. It's not easy. We have about 300 users who go through the internet.
Our network has 150 users. We have two internet connections, an IPsec VPN, a DHCP server, a DMZ, WiFi, access controls and a load balancer, and two appliances with HA.
I walked into a job where we had an end of life ns2400 that was a mess. Coming from a Meraki environment there was a learning curve on how to navigate the sometimes overly complicated user interface. Tasks I should have been able to complete in 10-15 minutes took longer and I bounced between menus to hash out NAT rules and port forwarding.
Firewall/VPN appliance for SMB clients. Firewall provides advanced threat protection to internal hosts. It also provides a secure mechanism for remote access.
