    SonicWall VPN Clients

    If your organization has a full-time IT department or support staff, SonicWall VPN Clients might be a good fit. Configuration can be challenging if you're a small business office manager who HAPPENS to take care of IT (as in my case). Still, once the SonicWall VPN Clients is configured, it works pretty well and at minimal ongoing cost. We opted for extended support from the manufacturer just in case we run into issues that we can't address internally.

    • SSL inspection provides more effective mitigation of threat and data leakage with the ability to inspect and analyze encrypted traffic.
    • Threat emulation and extraction provides protection against zero-day threats without compromising the data of infected files.
    • 'Office mode' VPN provides a seamless connected experience for remotely connected individuals.

    Cons

    Check Point Quantum Security Gateway

    • HTTPS Inspection -- The firewall has troubles re-packaging the packet in a way that some websites are able to interpret correctly
    • Support -- Even getting support directly from Check Point isn't the easiest of experiences. They are more concerned about how fast they can close a ticket out, rather than fixing the problem.
    • Custom reports -- Custom reporting is extremely limited

    SonicWall VPN Clients

    • Connections could be more stable
    • Difficult to use for tech-challenged end-users

    Check Point has a variety of support options that can be used to optimize your investment in the product. Companies with a larger information security and certified checkpoint engineer employee base can benefit from a standard SLA, while companies with a smaller security engineering footprint or more critical implementations can opt for premium, elite or diamond packages that even include the ability to provide on-site engineers for major security incidents. Check Point PRO support also provides the ability to outsource maintenance concerns by automating case creation and follow up when application components fail.

    Phone support has been very reliable and useful, but there have been times when better support documentation would have made that call unnecessary. I like to tackle problems internally if I can, as it tends to save time and usually money. The SonicWall VPN Clients system seems to be pretty locked down as far as being accessible to self-manage.

    Alternatives Considered

    Check Point Quantum Security Gateway

    In a heterogeneous environment, we wanted to keep multiple vendors for multiple purposes. CP was found very good in handling basic Next generation firewalls features along with handling of VPNs.

    SonicWall VPN Clients

    We started the process of vetting Norton VPN, but since it wasn't available from our preferred vendor, we ended up going with SonicWall VPN Clients by default.

    Return on Investment

    Check Point Quantum Security Gateway

    • Although there are better alternatives out there, Check Point delivers results for the price we paid for the system.
    • Since implementation, we have not have any major issues with the product, minor issues were resolved in a timely fashion.
    • Check Point currently fulfills our need for an outside facing firewall, when our organization grows larger, we will be looking at higher level enterprise solutions.

    SonicWall VPN Clients

    • ROI is difficult to determine because of the minimal initial cost; that said, now that we've experienced the benefits of having secure VPN access, we couldn't imagine not having it.
    • Users have much greater flexibility now that specific legacy systems are accessible from places other than the office.
