More SecureLink Pros →

"The management and the dashboard are the solution's most valuable features.""I am very satisfied with the technical support.""Secure Mobile Access (SMA) is easy to configure and the deployment is straightforward. However, this is mostly because of the AWS setup.""I like the load balancing capability.""I think they ask for a fair price."

More SonicWall SMA Pros →

"The security features offered in SecureLink are not enough."

More SecureLink Cons →

"The solution has 2FA, it will generate a token and send it to an email, but multifactor authentication is not available. I would suggest that there should be MFA integration and provided with the appliance.""The problem is that when combined with what the client already has, there are two different logins and two different management systems, and these should be consolidated into a single interface.""The solution could integrate better with other platforms.""User interface could be improved.""The timed synchronization between the network appliance needs improvement."
