"Sonicwall is a firewall provider who has built an entire ecosystem around security"
What do you like best about SonicWall VPN Clients?

Sonicwall's #1 strength is the interface. A tech can quickly accomplish what they need without running command lines and knowing another language. That being said, they focus on security just as much.

What do you dislike about SonicWall VPN Clients?

I have not been a fan of the GUI changes that have been pretty stark and consistent over the last few years. It does not seem that Sonicwall knows what i wants to stick with in terms of the presentation.

What problems is SonicWall VPN Clients solving and how is that benefiting you?

Sonicwall allows IT personnel to straddle that line between convenience and security. What takes me 5 minutes in a Sonicwall device has taken me 1-2 hours in a competitor firewall.

"Firewalls that work"
What do you like best about SonicWall VPN Clients?

Sonicwall has pretty decent support that if they can't solve it over the phone will do a webex session and collect data to replicate the issue in their lab environment and be able to work a solution up.

What do you dislike about SonicWall VPN Clients?

Sometimes with the new GUI for our firewall, changes do not save, which requires us to re-enter the data again.

What problems is SonicWall VPN Clients solving and how is that benefiting you?

Our setup is 2 SonicWall NSA 5600s setup for HA failover in case of a failure on one. This minimizes downtime as the failover is seamless. This keeps the business operational with little to no downtime.

"SonicWall Customer Review"
What do you like best about SonicWall VPN Clients?

SonicWall allows me to connect to my home office's network via a VPN and thus, allows me to work remotely. I've even use it internationally to seamlessly establish a remote connection.

What do you dislike about SonicWall VPN Clients?

It does require a basic knowledge of how VPN's work, which I had to learn prior to using this product. Once you have your network's IP address and other mandatory technical information that SonicWall requires, a remote connection can be seamlessly established.

What problems is SonicWall VPN Clients solving and how is that benefiting you?

Prior to using SonicWall, my office used Microsoft Remote Desktop. However, we have since found that SonicWall works well with, and even in lieu of, Remote Desktop to establish a remote connection. My office uses PC computers, and my home machine is a Mac, so I find that SonicWall is better at working around the technical difference in operating systems.

"Great All-in-one product"
What do you like best about SonicWall VPN Clients?

SonicWall products are a great all-in-one solution for small and mid sized companies. It is your firewall, VPN, router, gateway, dmz, content filter (web filter), virus detection and on and on. The other great thing about SW is that it is consistent throughout the device. Once you get the idea of their "object based" setup, you get it and it applies to all sections of the device. SonicWall Global VPN Client is a great piece of software. It works well on Windows and now they have great apps for Android and iOS. I would recommend a SW if your only need was a good VPN solution. Finally, there is a ton of support for SonicWall. From online forums, 3rd party it support, and official SW support, you will find an answer to your question.

What do you dislike about SonicWall VPN Clients?

SonicWall devices can be a bit more cumbersome to setup than other devices. The "object based" setup is great, but also leads to you having to create 3 objects to setup a simple port forwarding. Sometimes a more traditional setup option would be nice. Also the content filtering is not the best, but workable. Honestly with 4g, blocking the main business internet connection isn't as important as it once was.

What problems is SonicWall VPN Clients solving and how is that benefiting you?

Firewall, VPN, content filtering, and gateway. For these items, SonicWall is my first choice.
