Our organization would pay for a license every two to three years.

While I don't know the exact amount off the top of my head, I would estimate the licensing package was about $15,000 to $20,000 a year. Your original purchase includes the purchase of the hardware, licensing, and support. It's not a cheap device.

It would be better if it has a better price, but its price is okay considering the benefits that you receive.

Normally, when we buy any product, we buy it with a five-year service built into it. Later on, depending on the growth of the organization, we go for a new one or an upgrade.

Licensing fees are paid on a yearly basis, and we are happy with the pricing. This is one of the reasons that we choose this product.

When implemented properly, the total cost of operation is very low.

The pricing of SonicWall is still in line with Fortinet and Checkpoint. Personally, if I were presented with a decision between SonicWall, Checkpoint, or Fortinet, it would be a no-brainer.

SonicWall is a one-time purchase and there is no renewal license.

Our licensing fees are paid annually. It's on par with whatever is on the market. They are all the same, so it's not high or low. It's on the same level as any other hardware in the same category.

If you want to connect more than five concurrent users by VPN then you have to pay an additional fee.

I'm not sure what the pricing of the product is. It falls within a middle range in terms of pricing. It' not the cheapest or more expensive. The SSL VPN feature, which is what we needed to purchase, is a separate license.

In our evaluation, we found that the costs of deploying the solution, and also purchasing the hardware and licenses, were very attractive. The ratio of costs vs efficiency of SonicWall products is very good.

The pricing and licensing are the best part. SonicWall is great compared to competitors, such as Palo Alto, and it has the same features. Considering the market, I believe that the price of this solution is great.

All advanced features are licensed capabilities, such as Advanced Gateway Security Suite or Comprehensive Gateway Security Suite. VPN clients are licensed, and you have to choose a type of license you want (how ridiculous is that).

Hi security and IT pros, I work as the Business Excellence Manager at a Manufacturing company (size: 500+ employees). At the moment we're researching two firewalls products: Sophos XGS 2100 or SonicWall 2700.  Which one is better (and why?) for a medium-sized company with 150 users, and ~120 concurrent connections? I appreciate your help.

Hi community, I'd like to know what is your professional opinion about the following two SonicWall products: SonicWall TZ and SonicWall NSa? What are their advantages and disadvantages?

Basically, the main difference is that the TZ series is intended for a Branch office since it has fewer ports and the speed is around 1 GB.  The NSA series has more processor power and more port where you can create subnets and zones (like DMZ). Also, it has ports with 10 Gb and a processor to support the demand.  I have read that an approximate number of users in the highest TZ series (TZ 670) is around 150 to 200 but that is just an estimate.  Hope this helps. You can get more details in SonicWall datasheets where you will find the speed, throughput and more technical specifications to select the one that fits your requirements.

In simple words, TZ is for small businesses (less than 100, maximum 150 users).  TZ has fewer ports. NSA is for medium and large enterprises: > 150 Users,  NSA has many ports to support large networks
