SonicWALL has launched SonicWALL Network Security Appliance (NSA) 2400 for small and mid-sized organisations and branch offices.
The NSA 2400 brings the next generation of Unified Threat Management (UTM) to organisations with less than 100 employees and helps IT administrators manage their security in an increasingly complex network environment.
The NSA 2400’s rich feature set, which takes full advantage of SonicWALL’s recently announced Reassembly Free Deep Packet Inspection (RFDPI) 8 engine, ensures organisations have better control over the security of their network and increased visibility of all network activities.
In an environment where employees are using real time applications such as instant messenger and other Web 2.0 applications, the network is vulnerable to a multitude of new threats.
Businesses now require simple and cost-effective solutions that take a layered approach to network security. The NSA 2400 delivers a comprehensive UTM solution at a price that works with today’s shrinking IT budgets.
“Hackers, malware, phishing and other security threats are real for all businesses, regardless of size. Whether you manage a network of 50 or 500 employees, a layered approach to security is vital to a network’s safety,” said Jon Kuhn, Director of Product Management.
“With the introduction of the rack-mounted NSA 2400, we are bringing a full-featured, high performance UTM solution to the small and mid-sized business market at a fraction of the cost of competitive offerings.”
“Australian businesses are early adopters of new technology concepts, such as integrated appliances, and are constantly looking for high performance appliances to enhance their business competitiveness according to Frost & Sullivan,” said Chris Barton, Regional Manager ANZ, SonicWALL.
“Technology convergence and infrastructure expansion leading to an increasing number of branch offices in Australia are important drivers for network security in order to protect businesses against increasing and evolving external threats.”
At the heart of the NSA 2400 is SonicWALL’s patented Reassembly Free Deep Packet Inspection (RFDPI) 8 engine, which uses multicore design to inspect both inbound and outbound network traffic without compromising performance.
The powerful combination of a layered UTM approach and deep packet inspection means IT administrators at small businesses no longer have to choose between security and performance, they can have both.
The NSA 2400 offers the same layered approach found across the entire NSA series, including intrusion prevention, advanced file and content anti-virus/anti-spyware inspection to protect against a wide array of network attacks including, viruses, spyware, worms, Trojans and phishing attacks.
It also offers greater application visibility and data leakage capabilities for administrations through the integration of Application Firewall. This feature set delivers a suite of configurable tools to prevent data leaks while providing granular application control that can be set per user, per e-mail user, per schedule and per IP subnet levels to create a future proofed solution for administrators.
