We utilize the SonicWall NSA 4600 as an all-in-one firewall/security/VPN appliance for our organization of 5000 users and gigabit internet. We utilize IPS, DPI, content filtering, VPN, mail filtering, and more. We currently run in an HA configuration for active failover. This is used over our entire organization, and it solves the problem of needing a secure connection to the internet and allowing secure connections from the internet to several locally hosted servers.
  • VPN
  • Content filtering
  • IPS
  • Anti-malware
  • Dynamic content filtering
  • Built-in LetsEncrypt SSL feature
  • Logging
SonicWall NSA is best suited for small to mid-size companies or small to medium K-12 school districts. It's less appropriate for larger businesses and schools. This is due to their ease of use and well-rounded feature set but lacks in advanced configuration, performance, and reliability.

The SonicWall NSA Series provides firewall protection at each of our branch locations. The NSA series specifically has the hardware power to acommodate the number of active connections we have at each branch. Combined with the comprehensive gateway security license, SonicWall NSA provides a solid first line of defense of whatever bad stuff our users may try to download.
  • Relatively inexpensive compared to some of the higher-end products, like Palo Alto Networks.
  • Easy to set up, as the SonicWall NSA interface is consistent across all models.
  • The logging interface is voluminous and difficult to get quick and good information from.
  • SonicWall NSA is trying to mimic Palo Alto Network's investigative features but falls far behind.
SonicWall NSA is an excellent mid-range firewall suitable for branch office locations that expect a lot of network traffic. The higher-end NSA can take the bandwidth requirements of thousands of users while using Deep Packet Inspection and Antivirus features. We currently have SonicWall NSA deployed in a high availability mode configuration, and amazingly can failover to the backup hardware without dropping VPN connections. SonicWall NSA series is not recommended for companies who integrate VPNs with Cisco devices, as I've had difficulties with the VPN staying up.
Most of the time, calling SonicWall NSA Support, you get an expert who can help resolve your issues. RMAs are pretty easy once they determine there is an issue with the hardware. Support is available 24x7, which makes emergency calls easy. The only downside is the support engineers may have thick accents; however, their expertise more than makes up for any language barriers.

It's a solid device series I recommend to various clients. It can be as simple or complex as necessary, reliable, and a cost effective solutions for small to mid sized businesses. The user console is easy, installing certs and licenses is also easy to do. Adding WAPs or other devices is easy. The units are well made and can be rack mounted or stand alone (ideal for some smaller clients).
  • Ease of configuration. Easy to add WAPs, etc.
  • Reliable.
  • Ideal with smaller businesses. Would have to examine for more complex needs of larger businesses.
  • Scalability might be an issue for super large organizations.
I feel it's great for smaller organizations with limited WAP needs and limited technology staff. It is easy to set up, has the settings you need for most configurations, can handle additional complexities as needed. The VPN licenses are a little pricey, but easy to manage and administer. Great product for the right organizations. If you have powerhouse needs, go with Cisco, but if not, this will be great.
Cost, ease of use and reliability after implementation. It's a great and easy product to use to meet the needs of smaller organizations that want a more "legitimate" setup without going overboard or spending Cisco money. Great product. Can be rack mounted or stand alone. VPN easy to setup and update. A great product to start with and grow with in a developing organization.
