SonicWALL WXA 500 Software

SonicWALL WXA 500 Software

WAN technology for optimal network performance.

Save by deploying on your own hardware. WXA 500 cuts latency and application traffic between sites when integrated with select Dell firewalls. Supports 20 users, 100 connections.

Features

As software that is easily deployed on dedicated hardware, the SonicWALL™ WXA 500 WAN Acceleration Software allows organizations with distributed offices of up to 20 users to enhance WAN application performance while leveraging existing infrastructure.

Faster application performance.
Enable your wide area network (WAN) applications to run faster at remote and branch offices, without adding more bandwidth, using the SonicWALL™ WXA 500 WAN Acceleration Software.
Data de-duplication.
Cut down on duplicate information and reduce latency for peak network performance with data de-duplication, byte caching and file caching. After initial data transmission, you can limit subsequent traffic to only new or changed data.
Maximum security and performance.
You can seamlessly integrate the WXA 500 software with your SonicWALL next-generation firewall (NGFW). This lets you maximize security and WAN performance by scanning traffic before accelerating it across a virtual private network (VPN) or dedicated WAN link. You can also simplify the deployment, placement, routing, configuration, management and integration of WXA 500 software with other parts of your security solution.
Enhanced Web experience.
Increase browser response time while decreasing bandwidth consumption using HTTP (Web) caching.
Optimal network efficiency.
Give users LAN-like application performance over your WAN by decreasing latency and chattiness presented by inefficient protocols or application communication.
Right-sized solutions.
The WXA 500 software helps you select the format that best fits your organization’s WAN acceleration needs.
