CloudGenix would be suited for any company that has an internet connection if you have multiple sites you could use this to help with network traffic and what should take precedence over other applications. If you didn't have various sites, you could go with another type of internet connection.CloudGenix may not be suited for that scenario.

Based on my experience, this is a solid platform for a small to mid sized company, especially when there is someone who has IT experience, or can get outsourced IT help. I would not recommend for someone who is a technology novice. Also, this is a competent device for someone who is looking to add VPN services for remote workers.

SonicWall TZ

  • Great security services package under Comprehensive Gateway Security Suite (GW AV, anti-spyware, intrusion prevention, app control, etc.).
  • Flexible customization of access rules, NAT policies, objects, etc.
  • Geo-location filtering cut a lot of bad and just suspicious traffic.
  • Ease of management and administration.
  • Good hardware and firmware performance (after an upgrade to the most recent version).
  • Low or competitive cost compared to other vendors.

Cons

CloudGenix

  • Some warning messages are hard to pinpoint the actual issue.
  • Support was faster at first, seems to not be as quick as in the beginning.

  • management is confusing has many items that could be improved to facilitate the work to the network administrator
  • in the diagnostic tool I would improve the response times, that is, if a ping test is required, it should be quick, since in cases of failures it is sought to minimize the impact as much as possible.
  • each function has a different license item, I would place a single license package for all team functions

The support was super fast in the beginning. Sometimes it seems now that the support does not get back to you as quickly. When we do get in contact with the support, they are usually knowledgeable and can help find the problem. The support has also been easy to work with.

I have used the SonicWall TZ 350 for years and I can say that it is an excellent and complete firewall. It is easy to configure and administer because it has a friendly interface. It is safe, it offers several types of security features, VPN, and also protection against malware. Support and warranty also recommended. It's fast and the problem was solved in less than 1 day.

Alternatives Considered

CloudGenix

We evaluated Silverpeaks and Cisco. We found that CloudGenics' had a pricing model that met our needs. The sales team we worked with went over our existing environment thoroughly to provide the right size solution without compromising or limiting our technology needs. While the overall solutions form each vendor would have worked, we simply believed CloudGenic was the right fit for our company based on price, sales, support, and functionality.

SonicWall and WatchGuard are both fine appliances, but I am accustomed to the Barracuda NG. The Barracuda Control Center is so powerful and useful that it beats out the other two. SonicWall does a great job of dividing up firewall rules and NAT policies, but this is a preference among engineers.

Return on Investment

CloudGenix

  • Reduced Down time
  • Improved throughput due to their intelligent data analytics
  • Full utilization of all data circuits

SonicWall TZ

  • Adding the VPN to the network, through SonicWall TZ, has allowed remote users to access the files they need remotely, without additional fees or convoluted methods, thus saving quite a bit of time.
  • This device is less expensive than the previous device in terms of licensing.
  • Due to the reputation of the company, this device is less likely to require hardware updates as quickly as competitors, thus saving my client from purchasing new equipment unnecessarily.
