We use SonicWall VPN Clients to allow secure remote access to the servers in our organization; only a few users are granted this access. While most of our digital resources are stored in the cloud, there are a few legacy systems that are still located in our physical office, and a secure VPN was the only option for remote access.
- Exceptional security
- Relatively easy configuration
- Connections could be more stable
- Difficult to use for tech-challenged end-users
If your organization has a full-time IT department or support staff, SonicWall VPN Clients might be a good fit. Configuration can be challenging if you're a small business office manager who HAPPENS to take care of IT (as in my case). Still, once the SonicWall VPN Clients is configured, it works pretty well and at minimal ongoing cost. We opted for extended support from the manufacturer just in case we run into issues that we can't address internally.
Phone support has been very reliable and useful, but there have been times when better support documentation would have made that call unnecessary. I like to tackle problems internally if I can, as it tends to save time and usually money. The SonicWall VPN Clients system seems to be pretty locked down as far as being accessible to self-manage.
