The Anti-Spam & Email Security Platform Scalable & flexible deployments.
Easy to set up and administer, Dell™ SonicWALL™ Email Security is designed to cost-effectively scale from 10 to 100,000 mailboxes. It can be deployed as a hardware appliance, as a virtual appliance leveraging shared computing resources, or as software—including software optimized for Microsoft® Windows® Server or Small Business Server (SBS). Additionally, Email Security can be deployed as a cloud-based service or as an add-on service for Dell SonicWALL firewalls.
Optional high availability and scalable split mode let you centrally and reliably manage multiple enterprise-class deployments. In large distributed environments, multi-tenancy support lets you delegate sub-administrators to manage settings at multiple organizational units (such as enterprise divisions or MSP customers) within a single Email Security deployment.
The basics of Dell SonicWALL Email Security deployment.
Dell SonicWALL Email Security can be deployed in either all-in-one or split mode. In split mode, a system can be a remote analyzer or a control center. A typical split-mode setup is one or more remote analyzers connected to a control center.
- The remote analyzer receives email from one or more domains and applies connection management, email filtering (anti-spam, anti-phishing and anti-virus) and advanced policy techniques to deliver good email to the downstream email server.
- The control center centrally manages all remote analyzers, and collects and stores junk email from the remote analyzers. Centralized management includes reporting, and monitoring of all related systems.
Below are sample deployments for Dell SonicWALL Email Security. Of course, every organization is different, but the deployments below demonstrate the flexibility and scalability of the Dell SonicWALL Email Security solution.
Centralize domain management with a multi-domain, multi-LDAP deployment.
This deployment shows how Dell SonicWALL Email Security can centralize the management of multiple email domains that utilize one or more LDAP servers and one or more email servers. Organizations such as medical consortiums, insurance companies, franchises and multi-brand/multi-division companies are often candidates for such a configuration. Centralized management allows for simplified application of corporate email policies, with the ability to apply policies easily on a per domain/group/user basis. Reporting is also centralized with per domain reporting available.
Multi-location, central control deployments for distributed organizations.
This deployment is typical of distributed organizations where the optimal–location for processing email–centralized versus local–is critical. The flexible Dell SonicWALL Email Security architecture enables a solution that fits the unique needs of any distributed organization. This type of deployment is often found in organizations with multiple locations or organizations that have added locations through an acquisition. The local processing of email to remove the "junk" reduces overall network traffics while the centralized management ensures corporate control. An added benefit is that the remote analyzers can be "clustered" for failover from location to location if desired.
Flexible deployments for the Managed Service Provider.
A Managed Service Provider (MSP) can provide email-filtering services for their clients and possibly email server services as well. The Email Security solution is flexible enough to allow for multi-tenancy and multiple domains that can be centrally managed by the MSP, but still allows a given client to have their own administrators, users, policy rules, junk boxes and more, all under the control of the MSP. Reporting is centralized, but can be done on a per-domain basis as required. Outbound email can be routed through the Email Security system for some or all clients as desired. In addition, the flexible architecture allows the MSP to start with single system and easily move to the fail-over enabled, split-mode architecture as their business grows. MSPs can easily deploy additional virtual appliances for new or existing customers with minimal incremental investment.
Scalable and redundant deployments provide peace-of-mind.
Dell SonicWALL Email Security is available as a hardware appliance, Windows server-software, and virtual appliance in a VMWare® environment; as a cloud-based solution through Dell SonicWALL partners; or as a hosted hybrid-cloud solution with the Comprehensive Anti-Spam Service on our Dell SonicWALL TZ, Network Security Appliance (NSA) and E-Class NSA Series appliances. Uniquely scalable, flexible and redundant, Dell SonicWALL Email Security works in stand-alone, distributed or clustered deployments. The highly flexible architecture of Email Security delivers scalable, redundant and centrally managed multi-location email protection that can be managed easily and centrally. The deployment and operational flexibility of Dell SonicWALL Email Security allows organizations to protect both inbound and outbound email in the most comprehensive and cost-effective manner available.
