Very easy to use, intuitive setup for blocking specific websites, words, phrases, themes, categories, etc.

The categories update periodically so we have to go through and allow specific websites that were blocked because of the updates or mistaken categorization.

This software has been instrumental in blocking social media from our internal network, reducing strain on bandwidth and our antivirus software.

Wouldn't Buy Any Other Router/Security Appliance

  • July 09, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best about the product?
SonicWall combines several appliances in one. Instead of having separate Web Filters, IPS/IDS Units, Gateway Avitvirus/AntiSpyware, Application Filter and Router we are able to use a single Sonicwall Device. Add in central Wireless Access Point Management and on device packet capturing and I don't know why anyone would use anything else.
SonicWall also includes features like Site to Site VPN tunnels, Tunnel Interfaces, User VPN capabilities through a deployable client, or SSLVPN.
What do you dislike about the product?
The additional software require to run reports needs a major overhaul and still requires Java for somethings.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
We are able to provide rock solid routing and security services, along with backup VPN services using SonicWall.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Compare the cost of purchasing a separate appliance for each of the services offered on a single SonicWall. The price comparison make the decision an easy one. Makle sure to get the either the Analyzer or GMS packages for reporting capabilities.

What do you like best about the product?
The sonicwall security product are very good solution for the enterprise security protection. The sonicwall portfolio is composed by a wide range of devices and appliance: firewalls, SSL VPN, etc. The firewalls are very strong solutions and have the rigth ratio cost/quality ratio. The SSL VPN are very usfull to solve the user mobility daily work enabling the secure remote access of users.
What do you dislike about the product?
I think that sonicwall solution are best used for SMB company. The miss some very specialized functionality (like i.e. LACP trunk etc)
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
We use sonicwall to protect company boundaries and datacenter from hackers attacks
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you need a very secure solutions at the correct price, sonicwall solution is a very good choice

Great product if you don't need to a lot of configuration

  • June 14, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best about the product?
I liked that the product is easy to configure for basic setups. It was easy to adjust on the fly and you really didn't have to worry about messing anything up.
What do you dislike about the product?
I didn't like the fact that at a certain point when the configuration became complex, Sonicwall's software was not very intuitive and made it very difficult to work with.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
When we first got the product it was great, but once we got into vlan settings and other things like that is became a burden so we switched away to another vendor.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
My recomendation is that if you are a networking tech then this product is great for you, but if you are not and only have minimal experience like I do. You will want to hire and outside company or go with something even simpler that Sonicwall.

Great firewall - hard to configure

  • May 11, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best about the product?
Sonicwall is an extremely powerful firewall. The level of customization is almost without limit. The feature that I mostly use everyday is setting up static IPs and dynamic IPs. I also use the deep packet inspection because it work beautifully and it allows me to control all the traffic and it also helped me troubleshoot some port issues.
What do you dislike about the product?
The level of customization being without limit makes it also extremely complex for simple tasks. I had to set up port forwarding and opening ports, and it was a real nightmare to find what I was looking for.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
We use it to prevent any unauthorized access to our data and also use the VPN feature that works beautifully. We very rarely encounter issues with our users not being able to access our network remotely.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
When choosing your firewall make sure you research compatibility with all the devices that you'll be using on your network. For instance, on top of all equipment such as computer and printers, we also have sonos, audio and video over network and luckily everything worked out but it's important to keep in mind that aspect. I recommend the SonicWall even though the learning curve is pretty slow, Dell support is amazing and you can count on them to help.
