NSA Series Network Security Appliances

Organizations of all sizes depend on their networks to access internal and external mission-critical applications. As advances in networking continue to provide tremendous benefit to organizations, they are increasingly challenged by sophisticated and financially-motivated attacks designed to disrupt communication, degrade performance and compromise data.

Malicious attacks penetrate outdated stateful packet inspection firewalls by exploiting higher network levels. Point products add layers of security, but are costly, difficult to manage, limited in controlling network misuse and ineffective against the latest multipronged attacks. The SonicWALL® Network Security Appliance (NSA) Series revolutionizes network security, utilizing a breakthrough multi-core design and patented Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection™ (RFDPI) technology* offering complete protection without compromising network performance. This platform was first made available on the SonicWALL E-Class NSA Series, and it is now available for mid-sized organizations.

The NSA Series overcomes the limitations of existing security solutions by scanning the entirety of each packet for current internal and external threats in real time. Built on a high-speed multi-core processing platform, the NSA Series enables deep packet inspection without adversely impacting the performance of mission-critical networks and applications.

The NSA Series applies next-generation Unified Threat Management (UTM) against a comprehensive array of attacks, combining intrusion prevention, anti-virus and antispyware with the application-level control of SonicWALL Application Firewall. With advanced routing, stateful high-availability and high-speed IPSec and SSL VPN technology, the NSA Series adds security, reliability, functionality and productivity to branch offices, central sites and distributed mid-enterprise networks, while minimizing cost and complexity.

Comprised of the SonicWALL NSA 240, 2400, NSA 3500 and NSA 4500, the NSA Series offers

SonicWALL’s next generation security incorporates a new level of UTM that integrates intrusion prevention, gateway anti-virus and anti-spyware and features the Application Firewall suite of configurable tools to prevent data leakage and offer granular application control.

Scalable multi-core hardware and Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection scans and eliminates threats of unlimited file sizes, and provides virtually unrestricted concurrent connections with uncompromising speed. The NSA 240 Series can be configured using primary or secondary modem or 3G wireless interfaces for futureproofed extensibility.

Stateful High Availability and load balancing features in SonicOS 5.5 Enhanced maximize total network band-width and maintain seamless network uptime, delivering uninterrupted access to mission-critical resources, and ensuring that VPN tunnels and other network traffic will not be interrupted in the event of a failover.

High performance and lowered TCO are achieved by using the processing power of multiple cores in unison to dramatically increase throughput and provide simultaneous inspection capabilities, while lowering power consumption.

Advanced routing services and networking features incorporate advanced networking and security technology including 802.1q VLANs, Multi-WAN failover, zone and object-based management, load balancing, advanced NAT modes and more, providing granular configuration flexibility and comprehensive protection at the administrator’s discretion.

Standards-based Voice over IP (VoIP) capabilities provide the highest levels of security for every element of the VoIP infrastructure, from communications equipment to VoIP-ready devices such as SIP Proxies, H.323 Gatekeepers and Call Servers.

Secure distributed wireless LAN services enable the appliance to function as a secure wireless switch and controller that automatically detects and configures SonicPoints,™ SonicWALL wireless access points, for secure remote access in distributed network environments.

Onboard Quality of Service (QoS) features use industry standard 802.1p and Differentiated Services Code Points (DSCP) Class of Service (CoS) designators to provide powerful and flexible bandwidth management that is vital for VoIP, multimedia content and business-critical applications.
