The Network Security SonicOS Platform Wireless Network Security
Utilizing continuously updated services, Dell™ SonicWALL™ makes your wireless LAN as safe as your wired network. Using the firewall, you can implement multiple zones of access for both wired and wireless users, while maintaining total control over who is accessing what on your network. The Dell SonicPoint wireless access point series deliver the same gateway security as wired solutions, with integrated Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Intrusion Prevention and Application Intelligence and Control.
Innovative dual protection.
Businesses no longer have to settle for wireless security solutions that rely on mere traffic encryption for security. The Dell SonicWALL Wireless Network Security solution delivers the highest level of wireless security combined with the innovative dual protection of high-performance Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection (RFDPI), which is required to secure not only the wireless connection, but also to inspect the traffic flowing over the wireless network. By integrating Dell SonicPoint ACe, SonicPoint ACi and SonicPoint N2 access points with award-winning Dell SonicWALL firewalls over a central point of management, Dell SonicWALL Wireless Network Security enables IT administrators to create and enforces a single set of security policies for both wired and wireless networks.
Dell SonicWALL firewall wireless functionality.
The Dell SonicWALL TZ, Network Security Appliance (NSA), E-Class NSA Series and SuperMassive Series firewalls feature a built in wireless switch and controller that automatically detects and configures SonicPoint wireless access point devices. In addition to security and application control, the Dell SonicWALL wireless network can be configured to allocate bandwidth intelligently to all wireless users on the network, ensuring that no single wireless client can consume all the available bandwidth.
Dell SonicWALL TZ integrated wireless functionality.
Dell SonicWALL also gives you an option for integrated wireless connectivity with the Dell SonicWALL TZ Wireless Series. This high-performance appliance delivers the best in class wireless security. Bringing together world-class Dell SonicWALL Unified Threat Management (UTM), Application Intelligence and Control and Intrusion Prevention firewall with ultra-secure connectivity using 802.11n wireless technology, the TZ Series is an ideal all-in-one firewall for a small or remote office.
Wireless connectivity can be just as safe as any other type of connectivity with the right precautions. Dell SonicWALL's integrated and distributed wireless options provide several advanced features—including WPA2 security, enforced SSL VPN encryption on the wireless LAN, and Wireless Intrusion Detection and Prevention (WIDP). As a result, your wireless users will be just as productive as those on a wired Dell SonicWALL network, and just as secure.
Multiple zones of access.
Combining Virtual Access Points with Wireless Guest Services, you can protect your network assets by creating multiple zones of access for both wired and wireless workers, as well as guest wireless users. With this tremendous level of control over access, you can ensure that wireless network users are able to access only the zones that you designate—and nothing more.
Gateway Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware and Intrusion Prevention.
Just like our wired solutions, the Dell SonicWALL wireless appliances offer integrated real-time Gateway Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware and Intrusion Prevention plus Application Intelligence and Control, delivering high-performance protection against millions of unique pieces of malware and giving you greater control over your network.
Application Intelligence and Control.
Application Intelligence and Control provides intuitive application flow visualization tools, which allow for the identification of productive and unproductive application traffic in real time, and which can then be controlled through powerful application-level policies. A tightly integrated feature of Dell SonicWALL next-generation firewalls, it uses Dell SonicWALL Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection to identify and control applications, regardless of port or protocol.
