SonicWall TZ270/370/470 Case Study



This case study of Cosus is based on an October 2020 survey of SonicWall TZ270/370/470 customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“The firewall is very secure and easy to admin. It has a really nice web interface and cool needed features like being able to add and change objects directly from the rules.”
- Alexander Bertol, IT Professional


The business challenges that led the small-business computer services company to evaluate the new SonicWall firewall included:

  • Enforcing a uniform advanced security platform across distributed sites
  • Easing central management of firewalls across distributed sites
  • Consolidating security and networking features in a single solution
  • Optimizing network security performance

Use Case

Bertol first onboarded the SonicWall TZ270/370/470 Series firewall in a beta environment, deployed alongside SonicWall Capture Client.

He reports that the company loves the new user interface and onboarding the firewall with the SonicExpress mobile app.

“They work seamlessly. The new UI is easier to use.”


Cosus reports that the new SonicWall Gen 7 TZ hardware offers the following enhancements compared to previous Gen 6 hardware:

  • Faster performance
  • Greater stability
  • Easier management

Bertol found the most beneficial features of the TZ270/370/470 Series firewall to the company include:

  • TLS 1.3 support
  • 5G/LTE/4G cellular failover support

He agrees that monitoring the firewall or making changes is easier.
