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Malicious attacks penetrate outdated stateful packet inspection firewalls by exploiting higher network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
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.
