SonicWall NSsp 15700 firewall – Big and totally bad-a%@!!

Within the last several months, SonicWall has released a bunch of new firewalls. It’s pretty exciting. But none of them are bigger or badder than the SonicWall NSsp 15700. NSsp stands for “Network Security services platform.” It is currently the only model in the 15000-series. The other NSsp models currently are the NSsp 12400 and NSsp 12800.

This true-enterprise series delivers a lot of options, as you would expect. Things like advanced threat protection, Real-Time Deep Memory Inspection, and blazing speed. And believe it or not, the NSsp 15700 carries a budget friendly price that large enterprises and data centers demand.

The NSsp 15700 will have multiple 100/40/10 GbE interfaces and integrated TLS 1.3 support. All of the new appliances will be running the latest, and also just announced, 7.0 version of SonicWall’s operating system.

What’s new with the NSsp 15700?

The NSsp 15700 is a next-generation firewall with multiple 100/40/10Gb ports. It can process several million concurrent connections. There’s also the brand new multi-instance capability (modern multi-tenancy). It allows enterprises to provide guaranteed performance and availability while adhering to service level agreements.

And, the newly re-designed SonicOSX 7 features a brand new interface and several new enterprise capabilities. Things like new workflow, and Unified Policy combining Layer 3 to Layer 7 access and security rules in a single policy.

What is Unified Policy?

It allows administrators to combine Layer 3 to Layer 7 access and security rules into a single policy. This will reduce rule management overhead.

What is multi-instance?

With multitenancy, resources are shared between the tenants which can lead to resource starvation when a tenant is in high demand. For example, in a DDoS attack. Additionally, one cannot run independent software versions or configurations on each tenant.

However, Multi-instance architecture allows for true isolation. It gives dedicated resources such as CPU cores to each instance. As a result, no one tenant impacts the other. So now, you have the ability to run independent software versions and configurations. This is ideal for testing a new software version before deploying them. Multi-instance gives MSSPs more flexibility in providing services to multiple customers.

You said something about excellent TCO?

Yes. Here’s the cool thing. The Essential Gateway Security Suite bundle (formerly called Advanced Gateway Security Suite), does not need to be purchased for additional instances or for a High-Availability paired device. This gives the NSsp 15700 incredible total cost of ownership. Just compare it to competing devices in its class. And not only that, there are no extra costs for firewall instances and their security services. This is a huge cost savings.

Total cybersecurity orchestration

Capture Security Center is a scalable cloud security management system. It’s a built-in, ready to use part of your SonicWall. It features single-sign-on and ‘single-pane-of-glass’ management. And it delivers robust security management, analytics, and real-time threat intelligence for your network, email, endpoint, mobile, and cloud resources. It’s a holistic and completely integrated solution for total cybersecurity orchestration. Prebuilt and ready help you run everything in your ecosystem. SonicWall engineers designed it with agility and scalability in mind. Of course, CSC features single-pane-of-glass operation. And if you have SonicWall firewalls and other security services, you already have Capture Security Center.

SonicWall NSsp 15700 features and specs

We already mentioned Advanced Threat Protection and Multi-instance firewall. The NSsp 15700 has plenty of on-box technology to power these resource-intensive features.

The NSsp 15700 is scalable and available. Keep your business up and safe from threats to your network with redundant power supplies and fans. And a built-in storage module allows you to store logs, reports, firmware backup files and more.

And let’s not forget the NSsp 15700’s world-class threat intelligence. SonicWall Capture Labs Threat Research gathers and analyzes information around the clock and around the globe. We’re talking a dedicated team of security professionals, advanced machine learning algorithms, and more than one million security sensors spread over more than 200 countries. This means up-to-date, world-class intelligence so decisions can be rendered in nanoseconds. Wow!

The NSsp 15700 pushes 105 Gbps of Firewall Inspection Throughput, and 86 Gbps of Application Inspection Throughput. IPS Throughput comes in at76.5 Gbps, Threat Prevention at 82 Gbps, and VPN Throughput at 32 Gbps. It supports 80,000,000 maximum connection. This in not a slow machine.

The SonicWall NSsp 15700 is designed for large enterprises, data centers, government agencies and service providers. It works great as a stateful packet firewall. But it also exceeds the competition’s ability to perform as a NGFW on the WAN edge when examining for threats. It has outstanding malware protection and DPI throughput numbers.
