Utilizing the same architecture found in the flagship SuperMassive Next-Generation Firewall line which was initially developed for the most demanding carriers and enterprises, the SonicWALL Network Security Appliance (NSA) Series delivers that same enterprise-class security and performance while also providing Dells acclaimed expertise in delivering ease of use and high value to small and medium-size organizations.
Next Generation Firewall Security - A suite of tools, including intrusion prevention, gateway anti-virus, and anti-spyware plus application intelligence and control, offer granular control through application blocking, bandwidth management and more. Additional security and connectivity capabilities such as IPSec VPN, SSL VPN, content filtering, anti-spam and enforced client anti-virus make the NSA Series a comprehensive and powerful all-in-one security solution.
Multi-Core Architecture - Single-core and ASIC processors may have been sufficient for the design of traditional stateful firewalls. But NSA Series appliances go above and beyond, with a multi-core design to help ensure that the deep packet inspection provided by the SonicWALL Next-Generation Firewall can scale with your expanding organization. As many as 24 cores spread the network load evenly and protect against extreme performance degradation often present in other technologies when exposed to heavy traffic conditions and malicious content.
Deep Packet inspection technology - Proprietary SonicWALL Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection (RFDPI) technology offers extremely high scalability and performance suitable for even the most demanding environments. RFDPI scans traffic on every port, on every protocol and in any direction to provide ultimate visibility and control. The unique design of the RFDPI engine allows it to inspect every byte of a connection and up to hundreds of thousands of simultaneous connection in order to categorize application traffic and protect against internal and external threats at both the application and network layer.
Lowered Complexity and Cost - Along with superior power efficiency, SonicWALL NSA Series appliances lower the total cost of ownership by reducing complexity and the time necessary to configure, deploy and maintain security solutions. An intuitive GUI and powerful set-up wizards make it easy to quickly set up and fine-tune network policies, application rules, VPN connections and more.
