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.
Tightly integrated with Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection™ to deliver intrusion prevention, malware protection, application intelligence, control and visualization, and inspection for SSL encrypted sessions. They scan every byte of every packet for the deepest level of protection and massively scale to extend state-of-the-art security to growing and distributed enterprise networks.
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.
Add a Dell SonicWALL WAN Acceleration Appliance (WXA) to a Dell SonicWALL firewall to significantly enhance WAN application performance. This integrated solution simplifies deployment, configuration, routing and management by uniquely synergizing network security with network optimization.
Stay ahead of today’s constantly evolving landscape of threats and application-related issues with an advanced security platform that consolidates Dell SonicWALL Next-Generation Firewall features for enterprises along with WAN acceleration for distributed offices to maximize security and control with minimum network latency.
The Dell SonicWALL Application Traffic Analytics solution provides organizations with powerful insight into application traffic, bandwidth utilization and security threats while providing enhanced troubleshooting and forensics capabilities. Businesses can easily identify non-business applications consuming network resources to modify usage policies accordingly.
Deep Packet Inspection for SSL encrypted traffic (DPI-SSL).
DPI-SSL transparently decrypts, inspects and re-encrypts SSL encrypted traffic to allow security services to be applied to all traffic that traverses Dell SonicWALL Next-Generation Firewalls.
Integrated SSL VPN technology enables clientless, remote access to email, files, intranets, and applications from a variety of tablet, phone and PC platforms. The SSL VPN client can also be automatically pushed out to the client and auto-configured to provide secure layer 3 connectivity.
Powerful set-up wizards make it easy to quickly set up VPN Tunnels, policies and network rules, which can then be fine-tuned through an intuitive Web interface. All application and signature updates are obtained automatically by the firewall and are effective immediately without reboots or downtime.
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.
Tightly integrated, signature based network intrusion prevention protects against a comprehensive array of network and application layer threats by scanning packet payloads for attacks and exploits targeting critical internal systems. This feature is included in both Gateway Security Services and the Comprehensive Gateway Security Suite.
Every Dell SonicWALL TZ, NSA and E-Class NSA Series appliance can be configured into a customized network security solution, with a choice of individual security services and bundled solutions.
