SonicWall SuperMassive E10000 Series

Establish enterprise firewall security, performance & scalability

Establish enterprise firewall security, performance and scalability

Deliver deep security scaled to the largest of networks — at multi-gigabit speeds — with SonicWall SuperMassive E10000 Series next-generation firewalls. Culminating from years of research and development, the SuperMassive E10000 Series is field-upgradable to grow with the needs of data centers, carriers, and service providers. You get industry-leading intrusion prevention, malware protection, TLS/SSL decryption and inspection and application control using a massive, multi-core enterprise firewall architecture and patented1 Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection (RFDPI). Save on power, space, and cooling (PSC), with the leading Gbps/Watt.


High-performance security

Get the ultra-low latency and high performance that large enterprises demand. The SuperMassive 10000 combines the patented1 Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection (RFDPI) engine with a powerful, multi-core high-performance firewall architecture that operates at multi-gigabit speeds in a compact, power-efficient design.

Protection against today’s emerging threats

SuperMassive 10000 firewalls with RFDPI empower you to block millions of sophisticated threats at the gateway before they enter your network — regardless of port, protocol or file size — with advanced anti-malware, intrusion prevention, TLS/SSL decryption and inspection, and application control.

Easy monitoring and control of application traffic

Identify productive and unproductive application traffic in real time, and control that traffic through powerful application-level policies on both a per-user and a per-group basis (along with schedules and exception lists). SuperMassive 10000 firewalls seamlessly integrate with authentication servers to help you enforce acceptable-use policies, identify custom applications, better manage bandwidth and enhance productivity.

Centralized and unified management

Easily consolidate management of SonicWall security appliances —including the SuperMassive 10000 Series — with the Global Management System (GMS). Reduce administrative and troubleshooting complexities with a unified, secure and extensible platform. Govern all operational aspects of your security infrastructure, including centralized policy management and enforcement, real-time event monitoring, analytics and reporting, and more. A single GMS instance can scale to thousands of distributed enterprise firewalls. Gain agility and ensure compliance when deploying firewall policies with GMS workflow automation. Manage network security by business processes and service levels rather than on a device-by-device basis.

Comprehensive Gateway Security Suite (CGSS)

Get the most from your enterprise firewall with the SonicWall Comprehensive Security Suite (CGSS) subscription. CGSS includes gateway anti-virus, anti-spyware, intrusion prevention, application intelligence and control service, content/URL filtering and 24x7 support. Combine security, productivity and support in a single solution with a low cost of ownership and greater ROI compared with buying each of the services individually.

Gateway security services

Enable your enterprise firewall to provide real-time network threat prevention with SonicWall gateway anti-virus, anti-spyware, intrusion prevention, and application intelligence and control. Block the latest blended threats, including viruses, spyware, worms, Trojans, software vulnerabilities and other malicious code. Also, guarantee bandwidth prioritization and ensure maximum network security and productivity with granular application control and real-time visualization with application intelligence.

Content filtering services

Gain a cost-effective, easy-to-manage way to enforce protection and productivity policies, and block inappropriate, unproductive and dangerous web content in educational, business or government environments. SonicWall Content Filtering Service lets you control access to websites based on rating, IP address, URL and more. You get the ideal combination of control and flexibility to ensure the highest levels of protection and productivity which you can configure and control from your firewall, eliminating the need for a costly, dedicated filtering solution. Extend enforcement of your internal policies to devices located outside the firewall perimeter by blocking unwanted internet content with the Content Filtering Client.

Content Filtering Client

Extend the enforcement of web policies in IT-issued devices outside the network perimeter. Although it doesn’t require a firewall, it can be optionally coupled with SonicWall Content Filtering Service as an ideal combination to keep students and employees off of dangerous or non-productive websites by switching to cloud-enforced policies even when they are using roaming devices.

Reporting software

Enjoy easy-to-use web-based traffic analytics and reporting, along with real-time and historical insights into the health, performance and security of your network. SonicWall Analyzer supports SonicWall firewalls and secure remote access devices, while leveraging application traffic analytics for security event reports. Provide a complete solution that combines off-box application traffic analytics with granular statistical data generated by SonicWall firewalls.

Support services

Keep your security infrastructure current and react swiftly to any problem that may occur. If you need advanced technical support and additional benefits of ongoing software and firmware updates, SonicWall 24x7 support gives you an around-the-clock service that includes:

  • Telephone and web-based support 24x7
  • Direct access to a team of highly trained senior support engineers
  • Advance exchange hardware replacement in the event of failure
  • Access to electronic support tools
