PC Magazine Readers: SonicWall VPN Ranks High in Overall Satisfaction, Reliability, Performance


The dramatic increase in remote and mobile workforces has made employees much more savvy when it comes to their virtual private network (VPN). With more people working from home than ever before, it’s imperative that private networks are as safe as those at their offices via secure mobile access and remote access solutions.

Luckily, business VPN clients are provided by IT departments to ensure that an organization’s data and intellectual property are safe and secure from inquisitive co-workers or cybercriminals looking for a target.

“After the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, remote workforce became the norm and corporate networks became more vulnerable as adversaries found new ways to exploit the situation,” said SonicWall VP of Products Jayant Thakre. “IT departments of enterprises, governments organizations, and SMBs quickly realized that they needed to secure remote access for both managed and unmanaged devices with the best-of-breed solutions to reduce the attack surface and protect themselves.”

In a recent PC Magazine survey invitation to its PCMag.com community members, respondents were asked to rate products and services they are currently using to address security and connectivity issues brought upon IT departments by the COVID-19 pandemic.

When compared to seven other vendors, SonicWall earned high ratings in categories such as ‘overall satisfaction,’ ‘reliability’ and ‘performance.’ Placing second to this year’s overall winner, SonicWall’s Net Promoter® Score (NPS) was above the group average, a score determined by averaging the ‘Likelihood to Recommend (on a scale of -100 to +100)’ responses.

SonicWall’s flagship VPN solution, Secure Mobile Access (SMA) enables organizations to provide anytime, anywhere and any device access to any application. SMA’s granular access control policy engine, context-aware device authorization, application-level VPN and advanced authentication with single sign-on enable organizations to move to the cloud with ease, and embrace BYOD and mobility in a hybrid IT environment.
