Achieve Deeper Network Security With SonicWall NGFWs

How Next-Generation Firewalls protect from today’s continually evolving threats without compromising network performance.

Learn how SonicWall Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFWs) help you achieve more in-depth network security with:

  • Byte-by-byte packet inspection,
  • TLS/SSL decryption and inspection,
  • An IPS with anti-evasion capabilities,
  • Network-based malware protection that is updated continuously,
  • A range of NGFW offerings for every organization, and
  • Over 27 years of experience in the industry.

Next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) have become the norm in network security for organizations of all sizes. Unlike their predecessors, which offered limited protection from today’s continually evolving threats, NGFWs deliver a much deeper level of security across wired and wireless networks. They inspect every byte of every packet while maintaining the high performance and low latency that busy networks require. SonicWall NGFWs also provide:

  • A combined high-performance Transport Layer Security/Secure Sockets Layer (TLS/SSL) decryption and inspection,
  • An intrusion prevention system (IPS) that features sophisticated anti-evasion technology, and
  • A network-based malware protection system that leverages the power of cloud intelligence.

This powerful combination enables organizations to block sophisticated new threats that emerge daily. SonicWall NGFWs provide organizations of any size a deeper level of network security without compromising network performance. They feature scalable, multi-core hardware architecture plus a patent-pending Real-Time Deep Memory Inspection (RTDMI) and patented single-pass, low latency, Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection® (RFDPI) engines. These high-performance security appliances efficiently scan all traffic regardless of port or protocol.

In addition to advanced TLS/SSL decryption and IPS capabilities, SonicWall NGFWs also have access to the SonicWall Capture Cloud Platform, which contains tens of millions of malware variants. And they are easy to manage and deliver a low total cost of ownership.

Rising Security Threats

The growing use of cloud and mobile computing, IoT devices, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies — and the rise of shadow IT — have added new levels of risk, complexity, and cost to securing an organization’s data and intellectual property. Organizations of every size must now combat a wide range of increasingly sophisticated threats, including advanced persistent threats (APTs), cybercriminal activity, spam, and malware.

At the same time, many are also grappling with tighter budgets and don’t have the resources to address this efficiently.

The move to NGFWs means combatting growing security challenges by migrating away from traditional firewalls that focus only on stateful packet inspection (SPI). Next-generation firewalls have transformed network security by providing much more robust protection against emerging threats. In addition to traditional firewall features, NGFWs feature a tightly integrated intrusion prevention system (IPS), real-time decryption and inspection of TLS/SSL sessions, and full control and visualization of application traffic as it crosses the network.
