SonicWall NSsp 13700 and Palo Alto Networks PA-5250 Comparison by Tolly Group

SonicWall commissioned the Tolly Group, a premier independent testing and analysis lab, to evaluate the performance and functionality of the SonicWall NSsp 13700 next-generation enterprise firewall against the Palo Alto Networks PA-5250. The two firewalls have similar security features and are comparable from single appliance price point. Tolly Group used the published numbers and prices from both vendors to calculate the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for a 3-year, High-Availability, appliance model.

The analysis provides comprehensive side-by-side comparison across:

  • Firewall performance
  • Feature sets
  • Licensing approaches and support bundles
  • Total cost of ownership (TCO)

The resulting report shows that the SonicWall firewall has a much lower TCO compared to Palo Alto Networks, while providing comparable or better threat protection.
