Has anyone got feedback on the SonicWall Security Health Check service?

I asked my Inside Territory Manager: "is there a SonicWall technical service [that] exists that can help me evaluate the [existing prospect's] settings to ensure there won’t be any disruption following migration to a Gen 7 device."

His response was the SKU 01-SSC-2050 "SonicWall Security Health Check for TZ 2xx/3xx/4xx/5xx/6xx" with the accompanying description:

"Good to evaluate your current configurations, give you recommendation on changes, future deployments/upgrades. They will not configure the firewall for you though, they will just give recommendations or share KB articles"

Has anyone here taken advantage of this service for a cursory review to establish a prospect's baseline and derive the necessary effort to stabilize their technology for a Gen 7 migration?

I saw a TZ400 yesterday that was doing DHCP, LDAP (without an Active Directory server), and fail-over with two ISPs. The fact that this device was installed in 2018 with and has no firmware updates since then is worrisome (to say the least).

    Didn't even know it was a thing.

    I wouldnt be too worried about the situation u are facing. I'd incrementally update the existing firmware before doing anything (but thats assuming thats an option).

    Tim, I appreciate that. I haven't landed this prospect as a client yet, so we'll see what happens (and how bad it gets).

    And, of course, to use the Migration Utility to produce a Gen 7 file, the old device must be running the latest firmware.

    At least I know it is doing cloud backups...
