We are a managed services provider and have many clients that currently use Sonicwall TZ devices. These devices work very well in small and medium business environments. The Sonicwall VPN is easy to configure and deploy. Sonicwall TZ devices are very feature rich firewalls. The web interface makes it very easy to manage and gives us a detailed window into our network.

SonicWall is a true layer seven security device which mainly focuses on preventing any type of cybersecurity attack. We are working on this firewall for the last two years and this is really very strong firewall. There are lots of very advanced features like web-filtering, application control, and advanced routing option.

This is a type of equipment used at the branch where I work as an edge firewall. TZ Series is recommended for small and medium environments, but rich in security features, web content filter, antimalware and application visibility. Another important function that this equipment provides us is VPN access to work in the home office.

The SonicWall TZ series is being utilized throughout our entire organization. We have been using it for the past 6 years. Initially, we had the TZ 215 and then did a security upgrade to a TZ 400. It protects our environment from cyber threats/zero-day attacks and provides us with visibility into our network.

We make use of SonicWall internally, as well as implementing and supporting SonicWall for our clients. SonicWall is our primary solution for managing network security, and the TZ range offers great performance and management with a good ROI. Security is the primary requirement, and SonicWall has delivered consistently well. Management and reporting on users, along with application control, is crucial in improving network efficiency and productivity with our clients' users.

Sonicwall is a next-generation layer 7 focused application firewall. Our TZ 250 is a great firewall used at a branch office to do network access porting, web content filtering, application viewing, and anti-virus and anti-spam. It filters all content that users of our internal network access. And it does it all very well.

In the word of security, there are many manufacturers to consider when selecting such a critical component such as a firewall. The choice for us was obvious once we looked into SonicWall's offerings. Not only does it address real-world concerns in a user-friendly interface, but the feature set and price compared to competition sets it way apart.

The Sonicwall TZ300 Series is a next-generation firewalls that works very well in my company. We bought it for a branch. This firewall integrates the traditional firewall, IPS, Application Control, Web Filtering, anti-virus, and VPN. I also really like the management of this equipment. It was easy to install and configure all the features mentioned.

I have made the decision to deploy Dell SonicWall TZ 400 firewall as our primary outside firewall. We are using it as the main Internet security solution, content web filtering engine, and a VPN gateway. The device is responsible for managing all WAN and LAN traffic. Sonicwall TZ 400 gives us opportunities to use LT2P and SSL VPN connections for our employees and IPSec VPN connections to our AWS infrastructure and remote IT services.

I installed a SonicWall TZ as the main firewall for my client, a creative agency. This is their main internet security device within their environment and supports users using VPN, VoIP, and web servers. In addition, there are internal devices including a high capacity and speed file server for large image and video work. They currently have the TZ400 installed.

In my organization, the series of Firewalls Sonicwall is used throughout the organization; we have several WAN links that go directly to the Sonicwall devices. It is responsible for filtering the entry and exit traffic, managing the LAN of the corporation and creating the VPN tunnels against other venues. Also through NETEXTENDER we are able to provide support while outside the network. In terms of the problems that have been solved, there are many. Before, employees spent a lot of time in social networks and entertainment and lost focus on the work activities. Now with this team you have shorter response times to requests.

I recently used SonicWALL TZ firewalls for small to medium businesses for UTM (Unified Threat Management) protection and easy to create site to site VPN tunnels. The SonicOS is a very easy to use firewall platform that makes setting up and using the product very efficient and quick. One of the best features of the SonicWALL TZ firewalls is the built in debugging such as running packet captures from the GUI and opening them right up to Wireshark.
