The Network Security SonicOS Platform Next-Generation Firewalls
Dell™ SonicWALL™ Next-Generation Firewalls are the cornerstone of the SonicOS Platform, delivering superior gateway protection, inspection for SSL encrypted sessions, and importantly, granular application intelligence and control. With Dell SonicWALL Next-Gen Firewalls, IT can visualize applications running across a network—allocating bandwidth for what’s essential and limiting or blocking what’s not.
The Next-Gen advanced security platform.
Ultimately, Dell SonicWALL enables the enterprise to transition to a more advanced security platform that consolidates core Next-Generation Firewall application intelligence, control and visualization, and gateway protection capabilities along with other critical network optimization services for the most effective solution against today’s multi-dimensional landscape of rapidly evolving threats, application-related issues, and bandwidth challenges. This advanced security platform is designed to introduce a whole new level of effortless manageability to the enterprise, reducing complexity and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
Dell SonicWALL Application Intelligence and Control.
A tightly integrated feature of Dell SonicWALL Next Geneeration Firewalls, Dell SonicWALL Application Intelligence and Control 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’s Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection™ (RFDPI) engine scans every byte of every packet delivering full content inspection of the entire stream while providing high performance and low latency. This technology is superior to outdated proxy designs that reassemble content using sockets bolted to anti-virus programs that are plagued with inefficiencies and overhead of socket memory thrashing that leads to high latency, low performance and file size limitations.
Consolidating Dell SonicWALL Next-Generation Firewalls with Dell SonicWALL WAN Acceleration Appliance (WXA) Series solutions reduces the load traversing the network and can boost traffic productivity on the network by as much as 2X. Application-intelligent firewalls can also filter dangerous and non-productive traffic and forward only that traffic needing to be accelerated, thereby enhancing WAN performance.
Effortless deployment and management.
By merging comprehensive network security and control into a single platform, Dell SonicWALL reduces the time and complexity that comes with configuring, deploying and managing security solutions. Additionally, an innovative Web interface utilizes a complete suite of easy-to-use configuration wizards that guide users through the configuration steps for common user network environments or scenarios, for simple setup in any network environment.
