Likelihood to Recommend

SonicWall TZ

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.

Alternatives Considered

SonicWall TZ

We like it is a small, portable, and has many features. I have confidence in the brand a long time. Support was also a differential to make the decision.

Return on Investment

SonicWall TZ
