SonicWall appliances have numerous models for the size and thought of a company and its needs. It is one of the industry leaders and often comes down to what an MSP prefers to use. Barracuda NG and WatchGuard are direct competitors.

Costs, features and ease of use were the determining factors. The UI alone outweighs the CLI from the ASA and SRX, features were easier to understand and licenses were more easily obtained.
