Close Overview
Increase productivity Image

Increase productivity

Increase productivity by enabling your applications to run faster at remote and branch offices without paying to add more bandwidth.
  • LAN like application performance over the WAN
  • Comprehensive scanning for intrusions and malware
  • Simplified deployment, routing and integration
  • Data de-duplication, byte caching and file caching
  • Protocol optimization decreases latency and chattiness
  • Scalability through clustering
  • HTTP (web) caching improves browser response times
Get fast WAN performance for your applications Image

Get fast WAN performance for your applications

SonicWall WXA solutions enable your applications to run faster at remote and branch offices without adding more bandwidth. Cut down on duplicate information and reduce latency for peak network performance with data de-duplication, byte caching and file caching. After initial data transmission, you can limit subsequent traffic to only new or changed data.

Seamlessly integrate WXA with your next-generation firewall Image

Seamlessly integrate WXA with your next-generation firewall

You can seamlessly integrate the WXA Series with your SonicWall next-generation firewall. This powerful combination lets you maximize security and WAN performance. This is because it scans traffic for threats before accelerating it across a virtual private network (VPN) or dedicated WAN link. You can also simplify the deployment, placement, routing, configuration, management and integration of WXA with other parts of your security solution.
