Our review:

If you are a small business using VPN, SonicWall TZ300 is an excellent choice for you. It supports only up to 10 IPSec connections and up to 50 SSL but offers an enterprise-grade protection thanks to its additional security features. SonicWALL’s Capture Advanced Threat Protection helps to detect potential threats in real time, analysing suspicious files in the cloud. For additional security, you can also add intrusion prevention or anti-malware filtering to your SonicWALL plan.

Also, the device’s filtering policies can be customised depending on the business requirements and can be scheduled to be active between specific time or days. That makes it easier to support the productivity of employees by managing web browsing or messaging possibilities.

Finally, like all modern SonicWALL devices, it supports Simple Client Provisioning (SCP), which is exclusively available in VPN Tracker 365 on a Mac and makes setup a breeze.

You can prepare your SonicWALL TZ300 to VPN connection in a few simple steps:
