The Sonicwall TZ device is a great entry level firewall for all small and medium businesses.There is a lot of documentation to help get things configured. There are also a lot of videos on the internet. I would not recommend these devices for a novice user however, some prior networking experience is required.

In our scenario, we use it as an edge firewall, in order to filter, identify and block undue traffic and virtual threats. VPN functionality is very required and functional due to the number of employees working in the home office and this allows access to the organization's intranet. Web content filters also help us to block prohibited and inappropriate web pages.

The SonicWall TZ series is well suited for small to mid-size organizations and distributed enterprises. It has fantastic scalability and can easily be upgraded to a higher model depending on the organization's size and room for growth. The NSA series is better suited for the larger-size organizations which require more processing power to process the required amount of traffic.

The SonicWall TZ range is a great solution for SMB businesses. We have had good success creating multiple site to site VPN networks over different connectivity solutions with failover links, all working well with minimal problems and management required.
Student residences and other similar sites, where a secure and safe environment is required, but with the added benefit of application control to reduce abuse, has been an area where SonicWall has excelled.

Sonicwall's Tz 250 is perfect for branch scenarios with up to 150 employees. The appliance is small, portable, lightweight and very efficient. It meets the needs very well. We have been licensing Sonicwall as needed. In addition to the licenses I said earlier, we use a lot of global VPN and site-to-site VPN as well.

SonicWall has offerings that support not only the SMB market but the enterprise market as well. We deploy offerings across small businesses with 1-10 users, and at our larger multi-site officers with several thousand employees; no matter what, SonicWall has stood the test of time for us

SonicWall TZ (400) is a well-suited solution for small and mid-size companies. Very flexible and easy to configure and manage (at least for IT specialists). A lot of documentation on the Internet. A very good solution for quick VPN configuration for employees and VPN tunnels between branches or networks. For large companies, I would recommend having several devices to split roles or get a more suitable solution.

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.

SonicWall appliances have numerous models for the size and thought of a company and its needs. It is one of the industry leaders and often comes down to what an MSP prefers to use. Barracuda NG and WatchGuard are direct competitors.

I believe it is well suited for small to medium companies where they don't have that many users and need basic firewall functionality. That way some of the controls it is missing will not affect security as much and it will be able to handle everything else well.

SonicWall TZ is well suited for the small to medium business market and branch offices where quick setup and easy management are needed. It would not be so well suited for a large office or an office that wanted robust security features.
