Paul's Quick Tip

So here's my quick tip for selecting a SonicWall TZ Series firewall to meet your needs.  Having sold and managed literally thousands of firewalls across the world since I started in 1999, I have noticed one thing - Our browsing and data consuming habits effect a firewall's throughput.  All the tests above were preformed in labs and under controlled conditions.  

I would always recommend taking the slowest speed published - in this instance something like the TLS/HTTPS value and then dividing it by three.   This will give you, from our experience, the worst speed you will get under the heaviest load conditions, will full protection turned on.   Make sure this speed is faster than your internet connection and you will be good to go.

Example using a SonicWall TZ 270

TLS/HTTPS speed is 300 Mbps, divide this by 3 which gives you 100 Mbps.  This is the slowest we believe this firewall will run under the heaviest of loads.  Obviously if you want to turn some of the security services off, then you will make it run faster.

The Tech Geeks - Paul Sillars

Gio's Advice

Your firewall is nothing without a live and updating subscription.  Viruses, Malware and network threats, change almost hourly.  Purchasing a security subscription means that your firewall will always be receiving the latest threat signatures, virus protection updates and filter block lists.

The best bit is that an active security subscription also gives you free firmware updates, technical support from SonicWall and hardware warranty for the duration of the subscription.

Never view a security subscription like the warranty for a car.   It is not there just in case something goes wrong, it is actually needed to make sure nothing goes wrong.  You are only truly being protected if your firewall is auto updating and has an active subscription.


In addition to stateful firewalling, the Support license includes firmware updates, hardware warranty and telephone / email support from SonicWall

Essential protection

The Essential Protection Suite provides all

essential security services needed to protect against known & unknown threats, as well as firmware updates, hardware warranty and 24x7 support

advanced protection

The Advanced Protection Suite includes all services offered with the Essential Protection Suite plus additional reporting and analytic tools hosted in the cloud - extending your devices management and visibility.

support ONLY



24x7 Support

Telephone and email support, when you need it most, along with hardware replacement warranty.

Fimware Updates

Keep your SonicWall patched and up to date with regular firmware updates.

Stateful Firewall

A stateful firewall is simply not enough anymore, but is a start.  It allows source, destination, port and protocol blocking.


A VPN enables secure, encrypted connections between networks and devices at geographically separated locations.  Each SonicWall has a limitation on the number of Site to Site VPNs it supports and also comes pre-loaded with a number of end user VPN Licenses - License upgrades are sold separately.

Intrusion Prevention Service

Cutting-edge IPS technology protects against worms, trojans, software vulnerabilities and other intrusions by scanning all network traffic for malicious or anomalous patterns, thereby increasing network reliability and performance.

Application Control

Application intelligence and control is a set of granular, application-specific policies providing application classification and policy enforcement to help administrators control and manage both business and non-business related applications.

Content Filtering Service

Content Filtering Services (CFS) lets you enforce Internet use policies and control internal access to inappropriate, unproductive and potentially illegal web content with comprehensive content filtering. Website ratings cached locally on SonicWall firewalls make response time to frequently visited sites virtually instantaneous. Dynamically updated rating architecture cross-references all requested websites against a database in the cloud containing millions of URLs, IP addresses and domains and then compares each rating to the local policy setting. 

DNS Security - Basic

DNS Security provides better TTD(Time to Detect) and improving TCO(Total cost of ownership). DNS security inspects DNS fields to identify malicious domains and thus block connection at very early stage of connection establishment. SonicWall has petabytes of threat data that helps classify domain as malicious, reducing

false positives

Gateway Anti-Malware

ICSA-certified gateway anti-virus and anti-spyware protection combines

network-based anti-malware with a dynamically updated cloud database of

tens of millions of malware signatures. This adds deep security protection

against advanced modern threats continuously in real time. Dynamic spyware protection blocks the installation of malicious spyware and disrupts existing spyware communications. 

GeoIP Updates

Identifies and controls network traffic going to or coming from specific countries to either protect against attacks from known or suspected origins of threat activity, or to investigate suspicious traffic originating from the network. Ability to create custom country and Botnet lists to override an incorrect country or Botnet tag associated with an IP address. Eliminates unwanted filtering of IP addresses due to misclassification.

Botnet Service

Identifies and blocks command and control traffic originating from bots on the local network to IPs and domains that are identified as propagating malware or are known CnC points. 

Comprehensive Anti-Spam Service

CASS offers Small- to medium sized businesses comprehensive protection from spam and viruses, with instant deployment over existing SonicWall firewalls. CASS speeds deployment, eases administration and reduces overhead by consolidating solutions, providing one-click anti-spam services, with advanced configuration in just ten minutes.

Capture ATP – Sandboxing (Static, RTDMI, Memory, Hypervisor, Emulation)

Capture Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) Service revolutionizes advanced

threat detection and sandboxing with a cloud-based, multi-engine solution for stopping unknown and zero-day attacks at the gateway.

Security Rating Tool

SonicWall Risk Meters is a personalized threat information and risk scoring service that reveals gaps in defensive layers, fosters decisive security planning and facilitates actions needed for an optimal cyber defense.

NSM (Cloud) Management

SonicWall Network Security Manager (NSM) allows you to centrally orchestrate all firewall operations error-free, see and manage threats and risks across your firewall ecosystem from one place, and stay connected and compliant. 

NSM (Cloud) Reporting - 7 Days Retention

Increase your network visibility by retaining 7 days of analytic data, allowing you to review and report on network incidents, issues and usage.

What happens if I don't renew my SonicWall Subscription?

For the best protection a firewall will always need an active and configured security subscription.   If this has lapsed or your are thinking about not renewing it, then the following will happen.

1 - You will loose the option to get free support from the Manufacturer

2 - You will loose all hardware warranty and if your physical unit fails, you will no longer be able to get a free replacement

3 - Any firewall polices that use subscription services will need to be updated to remove them, otherwise they will often switch in to blocking mode.

Is support included in the subscription?

Support is included as standard in the 3 main subscription offerings - Standard Support, Essential Protection and Advanced Protection Suites.   This support includes telephone and email support direct with SonicWall, Firmware Updates and Hardware Warranty.

Is hardware warranty included?

If you have a current Standard Support, Essential or Advanced subscription then hardware replacement is included for the length of time you keep that subscription current.  Please do note that in the case of hardware failure, SonicWall will ship you a replacement from outside of Australia.   You may like to consider additional next business day hardware warranty services to supplement this, to get you back and running as quickly as possible.

What options do I have to get additional support if I get stuck?

We know that sometimes we just need that extra little bit of help and support.   The Tech Geeks have a team that are qualified to assist you and get your back on track as quickly as possible.   We offer rates from $150 + GST per hour and would be happy to quote for any work that you need help with.
