I honestly believe that it is well suited for companies, whose sole requirement is robust accessibility. Since the training part for admin takes a lot of time, I feel that it might not be suitable for small companies who are still looking to grow. Also, the product sometimes faces scaling issues and I feel like it might not be appropriate for smaller companies as they might look to expand in the future.

SonicWall Secure Mobile Access (SMA) is well suited as a solution for VPN on your phone. It allows our agency's employees to access our data and system from almost any device at any time. SonicWall Secure Mobile Access (SMA) is less appropriate if you need to implement the product in a very short time frame, as it took longer than expected for rollout to staff.

  • SMA is limited to only SSL VPN , it should have support for hybrid VPN (SSL + IPSEC)
  • There are different specs and features for Enterprise and SMB. Features should be same for all devices.
  • It does not have URL filtering, content filtering, AV/IPS and Threat Prevention features. For achieving the same, we need to deploy another product like firewall or proxy.

I'd like to point out that Huawei Cloud Network Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) is very simple to use and operate, and we can easily perform operations on it using the documents that are available on its support site. We can easily download the documents from the site, which are very useful for doing any configuration on the cloud and for operations.The security level is very good; enabling traffic and defining security rules is extremely simple utilizing their cloud portal in GUI form, which makes it simple to use, and the performance is also good; they provide a variety of solutions to meet customer needs.

Both Citrix Gateway and Sonic Secure Mobile Access are great for providing your workers with the ability to work remotely during the pandemic to access their office network. Both have secure networks and are stable systems to use. They both perform well for employees and provide helpful customer tech support when needed.
