The Network Security SonicOS Platform

Intelligent firewalls that
adapt as threats evolve.

The SonicOS platform.

The proven SonicOS architecture is at the core of every Dell™ SonicWALL™ firewall from the SuperMassive™ E10800 to the TZ 100. SonicOS uses deep packet inspection technology in combination with multi-core specialized security microprocessors to deliver application intelligence, control, and real-time visualization, intrusion prevention, high-speed virtual private networking (VPN) technology and other robust security features.

Application Intelligence, Control and Visualization.

Dell SonicWALL Application Intelligence and Control provides granular control and real-time visualization of applications to guarantee bandwidth prioritization, prevent data leakage, and deliver more precise control over network traffic.

Advanced clustering.

Select firewall models support a number of advanced deployment scenarios for increased throughput and redundancy beyond the common Active/Passive and Active/Active two unit deployments. Active/Active clustering deployments allow for assembly of stateful HA pair, stateless-HA pairs and single-unit “nodes” within the cluster.A Cluster can consist of up to 4 nodes, each node containing one or two units, for distribution of flows across all nodes with linear performance scaling.

Business continuity.

Your network will continue to operate without interruption even if there is a hardware or software failure with Active/Passive failover. Stateful synchronization across the appliances enables failover without interruption to existing network traffic and VPN tunnels.
