While this solution is capable of managing a smaller environment, I'm weary to install it into a larger customers' environment. This solution does a decent job of basic email security and centrally managed controls. Hardware upgrade options seem limited though if adding a lot more email boxes. Retention options are limited compared to other products.

We switched from Watchguard to SonicWALL because of the ease of use and everything was located in one place. At the time Watchguard was changing to force you to use a server to manage your VPNs, and we didn't see a reason to have to manage another product when it should have been able to do everything itself. SonicWALL met and exceeded our expectations.
