Next-Generation Firewall and Unified Threat Management.
Deepest protection and control.
Dell™ SonicWALL™ Next-Generation Firewalls, deliver superior intrusion prevention, malware protection, application intelligence and control, real-time traffic visualization and inspection for SSL encrypted sessions at the gateway by tightly integrating a patented Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection®1 engine with multi-core hardware. Essential to an intelligent and highly adaptive security system, Dell SonicWALL Next-Generation Firewalls scan every byte of every packet for the deepest level of network protection and, unlike competitive offerings, massively scale to extend state-of-the-art security to growing and distributed enterprise networks. Dell SonicWALL firewalls provide a comprehensive layer of defense by combining gateway content filtering, anti-spam, anti-virus, anti-spyware, intrusion prevention, and regain visibility into the network through application intelligence and visualization.
The SonicOS Network Security platform.
The Dell SonicWALL SonicOS operating system combines deep packet inspection technology with a multi-core architecture to scan all network traffic while delivering, high performance and low latency. This powerful architecture serves as the foundation for application intelligence, control and visualization, intrusion prevention, anti-malware, SSL inspection, high-speed virtual private networking (VPN) technology and other robust security capabilities.
Dell SonicWALL Application Intelligence, Control and Visualization monitors and displays application traffic in real time. This enables the creation of granular policy-based controls that identify and guarantee bandwidth to mission-critical applications while restricting or blocking non-productive applications.
Dell SonicWALL firewalls scan all inbound and outbound traffic to stop intrusions, viruses, spyware, and other malicious traffic from compromising your network. Dell SonicWALL is unique in its ability to scan all flows, across all protocols and interfaces without file size limitations, providing low latency and uncompromised network performance.
Dell SonicWALL firewalls feature both integrated SSL VPN and IPSec VPN, extending easy-to-manage intrusion prevention and anti-malware to mobile employees and branch offices. The unique Dell SonicWALL Clean VPN™ solution supports Windows®, Mac®, Linux® and smartphone devices, while simultaneously providing remote application intelligence and control to the mobile workforce.
Control thousands of Dell SonicWALL appliances from one central console, with the Dell SonicWALL Global Management System (GMS®). GMS gives large distributed enterprises, value added resellers (VARs) and managed service providers (MSPs) flexible, powerful and intuitive tools to manage configurations, view real-time monitoring metrics, and integrate policy and compliance reporting, all from a single location.
Built into SonicOS is an integrated secure wireless controller. In conjunction with Dell SonicPoint secure wireless access points, this allows you to deploy seamless and secure 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless networks, protected by Dell SonicWALL Clean Wireless™ technology and Dell SonicWALL Application Intelligence and Control. SonicPoints are automatically provisioned and updated by the firewall for easy management and configuration.
With Active/Passive and Active/Active DPI failover, your network will continue to operate without interruption, even if there is a hardware or software failure. Stateful synchronization across the appliances enables failover with no interruption to existing network traffic and VPN tunnels.
Beef up your networking platform.
Dell SonicWALL provides all the capabilities you need, with a flexible platform that fits into any networking environment, regardless of complexity. With unique features like inbound load balancing, simple network guest services, single sign-on and powerful diagnostic tools, Dell SonicWALL firewalls retain their ease of use to minimize total cost of ownership.
