Pros and Cons

  • Great security services package under Comprehensive Gateway Security Suite (GW AV, anti-spyware, intrusion prevention, app control, etc.).
  • Flexible customization of access rules, NAT policies, objects, etc.
  • Geo-location filtering cut a lot of bad and just suspicious traffic.
  • Ease of management and administration.
  • Good hardware and firmware performance (after an upgrade to the most recent version).
  • Low or competitive cost compared to other vendors.
  • Had issues with performance (CPU) until we upgraded the firmware to the most recent.
  • Would like to have more flexibility on logs sending and alerting.
  • Routing is a little bit over-complicated.

Pros and Cons

  • Documentation is clear and to the point.
  • The SonicWall keeps up with all the traffic in and out of the agency.
  • Good licensing options and some free services.
  • Without documentation, the interface and locations of features and settings can be confusing and not intuitive.
  • Would have liked a rack mount option for lower priced devices.
  • Would have liked to have some visualization options included without licensing fees.

Pros and Cons

  • Fault tolerance
  • scalability and growth
  • integration of services
  • Manufacturer's support 24 Hours
  • management is confusing has many items that could be improved to facilitate the work to the network administrator
  • in the diagnostic tool I would improve the response times, that is, if a ping test is required, it should be quick, since in cases of failures it is sought to minimize the impact as much as possible.
  • each function has a different license item, I would place a single license package for all team functions

Pros and Cons

  • Very good security features including hardware-level AntiVirus and Intrusion Prevention.
  • Customizable firewall rules and NAT policies that will match any network's needs.
  • GEO-Locational filtering helps close off unnecessary countries from seeing the company network.
  • Have not had a significant change in code for several years. Features are somewhat stagnant.
  • Global monitoring and management system is not as efficient as competitors.
  • Firmware upgrades can sometimes go awry and brick boxes requiring on-site intervention.
