    I have been working at SonicWALL full-time (More than a year)


    New executive leadership post Dell is very focused on leveraging their 26 years of IP and ensuring that they deliver for the partner as well as the end user/ Greta product and now they have the right team!


    With any divestiture, there are bumps in the road but the focus is on the issues and fixes are performed quickly
