SonicWALL Email Security Series Appliances: "SonicWall Email Security Appliance Review"

SonicWall Email Security Appliances are used to provide security measures beyond what is built into Exchange for our organizations. Using a third-party tool it blocks malicious email BEFORE it reaches our servers, preventing the storage of malicious and junk files. These appliances have greatly reduced junk and threats from our users' mailboxes.
  • Centralized management
  • Reasonably priced
  • Robust reporting capabilities
  • Manufacturer is focused on several solutions (so likely not enough focus in one area)
  • Not the most cost effective solution
While this solution is capable of managing a smaller environment, I'm weary to install it into a larger customers' environment. This solution does a decent job of basic email security and centrally managed controls. Hardware upgrade options seem limited though if adding a lot more email boxes. Retention options are limited compared to other products.

  • Simple GUI interface where everything is in one location and easy to use.
  • Simple setup, but allows you to be flexible with different security zones.
  • Robust, stays up and running.
  • Support lacks quick feedback.
  • Support knowledge of their own product is lacking.
The SonicWALL line of products are priced pretty well and they are pretty powerful, so I think it would work very well for small and medium sized organizations. Larger organizations may want something with more ports or a solution that matches the rest of their network (for example Cisco ASA), so that the complexity of having different product lines is removed. But for the most part we are very happy with the Dell SonicWALL line for our multiple hospital network.
