SonicWALL Complements Its Family of Multicore High-Performance UTM Network Security Appliances with the Launch of the NSA 240



Small and medium-size enterprises find robust network security with SonicWALL Network Security Appliance 240

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 1 /-- SonicWALL, Inc. (NASDAQ:SNWL), a leading secure network infrastructure company, today expanded its family of high-performance network security appliances with the release of the SonicWALL Network Security Appliance (NSA) 240. The NSA Series is the next generation of Unified Threat Management (UTM) designed specifically to address the challenges of application management and bandwidth growth by enabling network and security administrators to regain control over network traffic without compromising performance. The SonicWALL NSA 240 accelerates and prioritizes business critical network traffic, while attacking network threats, misuse of network resources and unreliable or unavailable Internet connectivity.

"The NSA 240 represents the fruition of our goal to create a leading edge Unified Threat Management Appliance targeted at branch offices, that delivers enterprise-class security and application management in a single, easy to use, easy to deploy appliance," said Patrick Sweeney, Vice President of Network Security, SonicWALL. "This product is going to shake up the market. We are the industry leaders in providing Re-Assembly Free Deep Packet Inspection(TM) (RFDPI), Intrusion Protection, Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Content Filtering, and Application Management in a single, affordable desktop appliance that delivers stunning throughput."

Today's network and security administrators face an ever-more complex set of challenges as bandwidth usage continues to increase, reliable network services are mandatory and new applications such as SaaS, Web 2.0, social networking and streaming media dominate network traffic. Such use cases and applications present overwhelming security issues for branch offices and corporate networks-and administrators can no longer afford the tradeoffs between security and performance. Existing security solutions are extremely limited in inspection performance, unable to adapt to the continual changes in the application and threat landscape, and are often difficult to manage effectively. Customers require a much greater level of network and application inspection without compromising the ever-growing throughput requirements of today's complex communication networks.

The NSA 240 revolutionizes branch office security by combining multiple technologies into a single appliance solution, dramatically increasing the security and productivity of networks and removing the tradeoffs administrators make between security and performance. The NSA 240 protects networks against a comprehensive array of network security and content attacks, delivering granular inspection and control over a variety of networked applications and accelerating overall network performance.

At the forefront of the NSA 240 is the Reassembly-free Deep Packet Inspection(TM) (RFDPI) engine, which incorporates object-based contextual controls over user identity and access, application identity and access, data leakage, and network optimization, as well as granular reporting, auditing and forensics. RFDPI unifies multiple security filters into a logical solution, without drawing artificial lines between security and productivity and allowing IT to create reusable and adaptive policy control. In addition to offering breakthrough control and performance, the NSA 240 increases the reliability of networks through the integration of an add-on high speed 3G or Modem card, providing continual network operation when hard line connections are disrupted.

"The complexity and sheer volume of Internet threats continue to expand at a rapid pace," said Trevor Henke, Managed Services Manager, High Touch, Inc. "The combination of users spending more time online than ever before and the increased utilization of various rich-media applications means corporate networks are continually being opened up to new vulnerabilities. We have been extremely impressed with the overall performance and throughput of the SonicWALL NSA 240 and believe our small and medium-size enterprise customers will find tremendous value in this solution."

The NSA 240 utilizes the award-winning SonicWALL Global Management System (GMS), which provides administrators with the tools to easily configure, enforce and manage global security policies, VPN and services from a central location.

The NSA 240 is priced at $1,195 and the NSA 240 Total Secure is priced $1,770.
