Web 2.0 advancements and expanding bandwidth have fueled new threats determined to penetrate your network. Next Generation SonicWALL firewalls combine the latest Unified Threat Management (UTM) technology with proven stateful and deep packet inspection firewall engines to combat these emerging threats, ensuring your network remains protected. The Comprehensive Gateway Security Service (CGS) is the UTM optional addon (bundled in the TotalSecure models), adding BotNet Filtering, Geo-IP Filtering, Content Filtering, Application Control and Firewall, Gateway AntiVirus, Gateway Anti-Spyware and Instrusion Prevention at the network perimeter, adding another layer of protection for your computers. CGS also bundles software updates, 24×7 SonicWALL technical support and advance hardware replacement for failures.
The TZ Series offers reliable performance in a small package with optional integrated wireless 802.11b/g/n/ac for the home and small office environment. This SOHO design incorporate SonicWALL’s full suite of protection options, VPN remote connectivity and content filtering for small businesses or home teleworkers. The TZ Series appliances utilize the same OS/firmware interface powering the NSA Series models, packing the same features including IPSec site-to-site and remote user VPN connectivity. This 6th generation family also offers the SSL-VPN NetExtender client for flexible remote access. Unlike residential class solutions, the SonicWAL TZ Series delivers a comprehensive internet security shield while utilizing high bandwidth broadband internet service and support for multiple internet communication lines (for redundancy or simultaneous use). Some models support high availability.
SonicWALL NSA Series Firewalls
The Network Security Appliance (NSA) Series builds on the feature rich TZ Series in a high-performance 1U rack mount platform supporting high availability for automated hardware failover. Ideal for small and medium businesses or high demand branch offices, the NSA family delivers powerful security features and network control, including support for VLANs, routing, and up to 4 WAN ports for multiple internet service providers. Like the 6th generation TZ Series, the new NSA line-up includes a customizable DHCP server, application layer scanning engine, full UTM protection and high performance throughput for demanding internet communications. The NSA Series is powered by multi-core processors delivering uncompromised performance for secure internet access and VPN communications.
SonicWALL Unified Threat Management (UTM)
SonicWALL Gateway Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware and Intrusion Prevention Service, Application Control, Geographic IP Filtering, Content Filtering and BotNet Filtering integrates advanced security and intrusion detection to deliver intelligent, real-time network protection against sophisticated application layer and content-based attacks through a configurable, high-performance deep packet inspection architecture. As an added layer of security, SonicWALL Gateway Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware and Intrusion Prevention Service protects networks against threats originating from the Internet or between internal network segments. SonicWALL Gateway Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware and Intrusion Prevention Service closes potential backdoors by inspecting over a multitude of e-mail, Web, file transfer and stream-based protocols as well as instant messaging and peer-to-peer applications. Network administrators can create global policies between security zones and group attacks by priority, simplifying deployment and management across a distributed network.
SonicWALL Content Filtering Service enhances protection and productivity for businesses and schools by employing an innovative rating architecture utilizing a dynamic database of URLs, IP addresses and domains to block multiple categories of objectionable Web content. An easy-to-use management interface provides network administrators with greater control to transparently enforce acceptable use policies. At the core is a new Web site caching engine that stores URL ratings locally on the SonicWALL appliance, reducing response time to frequently-visited sites to a fraction of a second. SonicWALL Content Filtering Service combines appliance-based policy enforcement with comprehensive content filtering in a cost-effective, manageable solution. UTM is part of the optional SonicWALL Comprehensive Gateway Security Service (CGS) and bundled in the TotalSecure models.
SonicWALL Global VPN Client provides mobile users with secure, easy-to-use access to mission-critical network resources behind a SonicWALL VPN gateway via broadband, wireless and dial-up connections. Custom-developed by SonicWALL, the Global VPN Client is specifically engineered to take advantage of the features in SonicWALL’s third-and fourth-generation appliances, adding greater value to SonicWALL’s remote access solutions. Easy to install and simple to configure, the Global VPN Client uses 3DES or AES encryption to maintain the confidentiality of private data. Using SonicWALL’s Client Policy Provisioning, the client streamlines VPN deployment and management by automatically downloading the VPN configuration data from the SonicWALL VPN gateway.
SonicWALL SSL NetExtender VPN Client
Some network administrators prohibit the use of IPSec, blocking IPSec VPN clients like the SonicWALL Global VPN Client. The SonicWALL SSL NetExtender VPN Client utilizes SSL encryption instead of IPSec, making it more widely accessible. NetExtender clients, like tht Global VPN Client, can use the local user database on the SonicWALL firewall, Micorosft Active Directory, or LDAP to authenticate users. Both clients also support the automatic execution of a network logon script after connecting and can be configured with granular network access control policies.
