BIG NEWS! – SonicWall Gen 7 Trade-Up Promotion! Save 22% on SonicWall TZ300 Firewall!
The SonicWALL TZ300 firewall offers an all-in-one solution. It protects networks from advanced attacks brilliantly. Unlike consumer grade products, the SonicWALL TZ300 combines high-speed intrusion prevention, anti-malware and content/URL filtering. In addition, it has broad secure mobile access support for laptops, smartphones and tablets along with optional integrated 802.11ac wireless.
This is a feature worth talking about a little. The TZ300 supports the SonicPoint 802.11ac access points for seamless wireless network provisioning and management. The TZ300 has predefined wireless profiles for both radios, which you can easily modify to suit. When you connect the access point, it automatically had the correct profile.
All access points are placed in a dedicated WLAN zone, which allows you to swiftly apply policies such as web filtering, IPS and gateway antivirus. Moreover, provisioning guest access is pain-free. That’s because the WLAN zone has options for client isolation and redirecting users to an external website for authentication.
This wireless management is enabled as standard, allowing the TZ300 to handle up to eight SonicPoint APs. The TZ300 even offers optional 802.3at PoE+ to power PoE-enabled devices.
Installation takes maybe five minutes. The the web console’s quick-start wizard set up the first LAN port, as well as the WAN port for internet access. And it applied a base security policy to the default zone. This feature makes the TZ300 very versatile. You could place selected ports in different zones and quickly apply a single security policy to all members.
And once it’s configured, the SonicWALL TZ300 keeps itself updated with the latest threat signatures. This means that small to medium-sized businesses can have a single device protecting their networks, without having to worry about updating software on every client.
If the wireless 802.11ac radio is activated, then that protection can also extend to anyone using the wireless network. SonicWall offers great security for those who don’t always sit at an office desk.
Features of the SonicWALL TZ300
The SonicWALL TZ300 firewall offers anti-malware, anti-spyware, and intrusion prevention. Plus, you get anti-spam and protection against incoming email threats if you’re set up for it.
And, if you work remotely, you’re covered too. First, remote users can set up a secure VPN tunnel back into the home network. Each TZ300 can support 20 site-to-site VPN connections simultaneously.
One of the best things about SonicWall is that you can add modules, or features, as needed. It’s an a la carte approach that’s great for small to medium-sized businesses. In other words, businesses that may not need to pay for full-on enterprise level security. Nevertheless, it’s quite easy to add the modules in when you decide to.
SonicWall’s cloud-management and sandboxing is a cool feature worth mentioning. When any of the myriad SonicWall devices linked together in the cloud discovers an unknown malware, guess what it does? Shares it with every other SonicWall. So that unknown malware becomes famous to every SonicWall appliance everywhere that’s using the SonicWall Capture Advanced Threat Protection module.
And a big benefit of cloud-based sandboxing is that it’s not limited to one engine. SonicWall uses several of them, so it’s nearly impossible to create malware that could trick all of them. SMB’s don’t generally assume they can afford this level of layered protection. But it’s nice to know it’s here.
The price and power of the SonicWall TZ300 puts iin the entry-to-middle of the SMB range. And with its modular feature set, it is hugely scalable. We’d love to tell you more about the SonicWall TZ300. So, why not call Corporate Armor at 877-449-0458, or reach out at [email protected]?
