I will recommend SonicWall depending of the size of the company and the knowledge of the personal is going to administer the firewall. I deploy those in small office settings where manageability was relative non existence.

StackPath

Well suited to:
  1. Startups - Very competitive pricing, better than AWS for object storage and CDN.
  2. The less technical - for those looking to implement a CDN, it doesn't get any easier than StackPath
  3. The more technical - Well documented API, serverless scripting and container deployments
  4. Fast object delivery - StackPath tends to be faster (sometimes much more ) than AWS S3. See below however...
Not so well suited to:
  1. Multi-tiered web applications
  2. Ultra high bandwidth requirements. Stackpath isn't meant to be a substitute for AWS or Azure when you're looking to push 100s of TBs of traffic.
  3. Object storage works well if you don't need fine-grained bucket lifecycle or permissions management.

      SonicWall

      Technical support is a little expensive but it works. Any technical problem or not, SonicWall support helps in solving the problems. The SLA is fast and the service is also cordial, functional, and straight to the point. Support is essential to keep the tool always up-to-date with lists of malware, URLs, attacks, and others.

      Both products has their pro and cons. However in term of subscription and pricing for a small office, this offered better ROI as the office didn't want to spend too much and have something relative easy to manage.

      StackPath

      Better CDN pricing than Amazon CloudFront and Fastly. We knew Akamai was expensive but it is the best when it comes to content and application delivery. For CDN and Object Storage, it is easier to setup and manage than AWS. Fastly offers different services than StackPath and their CDN bandwidth charges were nearly 60% higher than StackPath when we first signed up - that may have changed since we first signed up however.
