Many valuable features with user friendly interface; updates should be released more frequently
Pros and Cons
  • "There are no wasted extras and the interface is really simple."
  • "Updates could be released more frequently."

What is our primary use case?

My primary use case of Email Security is for email scanning. The solution checks for spam or phishing activities, as well as viruses of any sort. I'm the managing director of the company and we have a partnership with Sonicwall. 

What is most valuable?

I think all the features are valuable. There are no wasted extras and the interface is really simple, so even if you don't have an IT background you can understand the working procedure, and how systems are monitored. 

What needs improvement?

I'd like to see updates released more frequently and it would be helpful if the solution could catch ransomware more quickly than other OEMs. Those are the two main things that could be improved. Previously, we had an issue with a faulty appliance and had to wait over two weeks for a replacement. It really shouldn't take that long. For some reason, SonicWall hasn't developed a marketing strategy here in Bangladesh and they should work on that. People here know about Cisco and Barracuda and Dell, but SonicWall is far behind and I have to convince clients to try it. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution for a year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is reliable and stable. It may be a little behind Barracuda but we haven't had any problems. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability is okay overall. We've just completed implementation on a project and the scalability was fine. 

How are customer service and support?

We're satisfied with the customer support and so are our clients. 

How was the initial setup?

The process of implementation was complex because our engineers are not sufficiently trained in SonicWall and we were reliant on support from Switzerland. It was complicated. I wouldn't say that the solution requires maintenance but there are rule changes that occur and need to be applied to email security.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Licensing costs are middle of the road; not the cheapest, but not the most expensive. I think it would be helpful if they would lower their prices for a couple of years until the product becomes more well known here. Barracuda is expensive but everyone knows the name and they're willing to pay the price. 

What other advice do I have?

SonicWall has various kinds of email security appliances for small, mid-level enterprise, and large-level enterprise organizations. If the email security engine is up to the mark, there is no issue. It's very flexible - the project I'm working on now has 300 users, but they're planning to increase to 1,000 users and possibly eventually 2,000 users. If costs are prohibitive for the on-prem version, then I'd recommend the virtual platform. For now, I rate this solution seven out of 10. I'm sure it will improve.
