Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with SonicWall NSV.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
SonicWall NSV's initial setup is complicated and requires good knowledge.
SonicWall NSV's SSL VPN could increase its number of users to 100-plus users. I have still not checked if SonicWall NSV will support SSL VPN for 100-plus users.
It has been brought to our attention by a few customers that they are dissatisfied with the fact that our virtualized service is only offered as a subscription option on the cloud. However, it is worth noting that many other similar services are also offered through a subscription model on the cloud and not through perpetual licensing. It is unclear why these customers would have an issue with this subscription service when so many others are utilizing similar methods.
With eight branches, we are not a very big customer and find that the pricing is a little bit expensive. We are a large community bank that has been around for 100 years, but we only have eight branches. That said, the pricing is still much better than it was with Cisco. I would like to see the reporting opened up and have several more opportunities for automatic reports. I have experience with building custom reports that I can use, but I don't have that kind of time anymore. Having more canned reports, which is what Firepower gave us, would be very beneficial.
