NSa SERIES
NEXT-GENERATION FIREWALL (NGFW)

Next-gen security for mid-sized networks without the big-time price tag.

Overview

Defeating advanced threats requires an advanced firewall solution built for the needs of your business. The SonicWall Network Security appliance (NSa) Mid-Range Firewall is next-generation security designed specifically for businesses of 250 users and up. Work with the confidence of knowing you’re protected against the day-to-day incursions as well as against advanced threats like ransomware, attacks against non-standard ports, and breaches in firewalls, all at the speed of business.

With cloud-based and on-box capabilities like TLS/SSL decryption and inspection, application intelligence and control, secure SD-WAN, real-time visualization, and WLAN management, SonicWall provides flexible, fast and cost-effective security to keep the threats out and your business thriving.

Features & Benefits

  • Blocks More Attacks With RTDMI™

    Real-Time Deep Memory Inspection (RTDMI™) proactively detects and blocks unknown malware via deep memory inspection in real time, a revolutionary approach to defend against zero-day and side-channel attacks and other unrecognized threats.

  • Secure Remote Workers

    SonicWall NetExtender provides an intuitive SSL-VPN connection client that’s easy to deploy and configure. Easily provide your remote workers with secure access to your corporate network from Linux, Mac and Windows devices.

  • Secure SD-WAN Technology

    Leave MPLS behind for a more agile, more secure and more cost-effective network optimized for today’s broadband-driven, cloud-infused landscape. Secure SD-WAN technology is built in to NSa firewalls, so there’s no need to purchase additional SD-WAN appliances and licenses.

  • Built-in Wireless Controller

    Implement high-speed wireless security by combining a NSa series next-generation firewall with a SonicWall SonicWave wireless access point. NSa series firewalls and SonicWave access points both feature 2.5 GbE ports that enable multi-gigabit wireless throughput offered in Wave 2 wireless technology.

  • Low Total Cost of Ownership

    Make a SonicWall NSa firewall the start of enterprise savings. From reduced costs through zero-touch deployment to enabling SD-WAN and delivering NetSecOPEN-verified threat block rates on par or better than competitors at a fraction of the cost, SonicWall NSa firewalls are security you can’t afford to be without.

  • Cloud-based & On-Premises Centralized Management

    Gain greater visibility into your enterprise even as it becomes more complex on- and off-prem. Tightly integrated into the SonicWall ecosystem, bring your firewalls into a single-pane-of-glass management, licensing, reporting and analytics

Customer Testimonials

“Directly after implementing them, we had a major attack effort against the city. The SonicWall firewalls were able to prevent entry into the network. We found out shortly after this had happened that the Cisco firewall had a vulnerability that was not general knowledge at the time that would have enabled the attackers to gain entry into our network.”
