Sonic Wall protection has expired. Renew or Replace?
Posted on 2013-06-19
I have a Sonic Wall TZ 180 Standard that the current subscription has expired. I can renew ($1100) and keep this device for another year then it will have to be replaced. Or I can replace the device now with the newer TZ 215 ($2150 then $600 for the next two years) which in the long run is cheaper than the TZ 180.
We have two VPN users, 7 workstations and one server. Sonic Wall seems to be very expensive. I understand the vast services that the device provides but I'm curious about other options. The server provides only file/print, data sharing and authentication to the local domain. All email is hosted externally. Thanks in advance.
