SonicWall NSA 4600 Network Security/Firewall Appliance
Today’s organizations face unprecedented security challenges. The sophistication and volume of attacks is increasing exponentially, often resulting in lost company, personal and customer data; stolen intellectual property; damaged reputations; and lost productivity. At the same time, security has become more complex. Organizations are grappling with the BYOD revolution and the explosion of personal devices connecting to the network. Personal smartphones and tablets slow network performance and productivity, and mobile applications such as social media and video streaming consume an enormous amount of bandwidth. In order to address these network security and productivity challenges, some organizations have chosen to compromise their security by turning off features to maintain network performance.
Now your organization can be both secure and productive without compromising network performance. The SonicWall™ Network Security Appliance (NSA) Series next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) deliver network security that does not compromise performance. It delivers world-class security and performance without compromise, using the same architecture as the flagship SuperMassive next-generation firewall line. At the same time, the NSA Series offers SonicWall’s acclaimed ease of use and high value.
At the same time, the NSA series offers SonicWall’s acclaimed ease of use and high value. Based on years of research and development, the NSA Series is designed from the ground up for distributed enterprises, small- to medium-sized businesses, branch offices, school campuses and government agencies. It combines a revolutionary multi-core architecture with a patented, Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection® (RFDPI) single-pass threat-prevention engine in a massively scalable design. This gives organizations industry-leading protection, performance and scalability with a high number of concurrent connections, low latency and high connections-per-second with no file size limitations. Highly respected independent third-party testing firms have evaluated and/or certified the technology of the NSA Series firewalls.
Unlike competing legacy firewall and intrusion prevention technologies, the NSA Series looks at all traffic, regardless of port or protocol. The NSA Series blocks advanced malware attacks with the industry’s highest on-the-fly SSL decryption rates. Its authentication server integration efficiently enforces acceptable use policy through granular application controls for bandwidth management and enhanced productivity. Unlike antiquated, two-box solutions that do not share threat information, the NSA Series integrates firewall and IPS. This connected intelligence enforces policy decisions to intensify security effectiveness, while slashing management burdens and organizational risk.
In addition, NSA Series firewalls feature network-based malware protection with cloud assist to provide organizations with an essential, primary layer of defense against millions of variants of malware.
NSA Series firewalls are also easy to administer and cost-effective because they support SonicWall’s award-winning Global Management System platform that is capable of managing hundreds or even thousands of SonicWall firewalls from a single pane-of-glass console. Comprehensive real-time visualization shows what is happening on the network with thorough, on-box and off-box reporting.
