SonicWall NSa firewalls Case Study

Federal Government

Introduction

This case study of a federal government is based on an August 2019 survey of SonicWall NSa firewalls customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service. The profiled organization asked to have their name blinded to protect their confidentiality.

“Our prior firewalls were limited in VPN capacity,” says the network administrator of a U.S. federal agency. “SonicWall firewalls have a much greater capacity. My SonicWall NSa firewall is meeting or exceeding my performance and security expectations.”

Challenges

The agency had tried Juniper Networks prior to selecting their SonicWall NSa firewall.

The networking team deployed SonicWall NSa firewalls because they were challenged with better handling of VPNs relative to their prior firewall.

Use Case

“We use the NSa firewalls to protect our primary sites,” says the network administrator. “We have a number of smaller sites that connect with VPN tunnels.”

Key features and functionalities of NSa firewalls used by the surveyed agency includes:

  • Single-pane-of-glass management and reporting (Capture Security Center)
  • Deep Packet Inspection of Encrypted Traffic (DPI-SSL)
  • An integrated VPN

Results

The agency’s network administrator is satisfied with their NSA firewall. He finds it delivers faster performance and includes the networking features it needs.
