Reliable content filtering but need more traffic control
Pros and Cons
  • "It is very stable."
  • "Malware, scanning, capture, and integration should be included with the content filtering."

What is our primary use case?

To deploy it as a proxy, we use this solution for content filtering, URL filtering, and solution filtering on the user end.

When the user is connecting to the internet and should not access some social media website or malware sites, we can block it through SonicWall CFS. CFS is our content filtering solution.

What needs improvement?

It has to be able to control more than just web traffic.

Malware, scanning, capture, and integration should be included with the content filtering.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using the latest version of SonicWall CFS in the last year. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is very stable. It's reliable.
