SonicWall SonicWall NSa 2700 Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) Strategic Analysis vs. Fortinet FortiGate 100F NGFW

Document number: 221102
Release Date: 04 Mar 2021

The term firewall has been part of the IT lexicon for over two decades. Today’s threats are radically more sophisticated than in the past and today’s next- generation firewalls have came a long way compared to the original invention - and all NGFWs are not the same. It is important to focus on the security features and performance needs that are most important for your environment. SonicWall has designed its NSa 2700 to excel in protection while maintaining an industry- leading price-performance ratio.

SonicWall commissioned Tolly to review the published specifications of its NSa 2700 and compare it to Fortinet’s FortiGate 100F. Analysis was mainly focused on evaluating key total cost of ownership (TCO) metrics of the comparable solutions.

The Tolly analysis shows that the SonicWall has a dramatically lower 3-year TCO for HA deployments compared to Fortinet while providing comparable or better security feature set and performance characteristics. The TCO is enhanced by SonicWall’s High Availability (HA) licensing policy allowing a single firewall license to be used for both the primary and backup (HA) appliance.
