Get uncompromising high-performance firewall protection
Now your business can deliver deep security to detect and block the most sophisticated threats before they can enter your network with the SonicWALL SuperMassive 9000 Series next-generation firewall (NGFW). Plus, you can minimize latency for every connection on your network and gracefully handle traffic spikes even on the most demanding enterprise networks using a scalable, high-density, multi-core, high-performance firewall architecture. At the same time, you can save rack space and lower power and cooling costs with this elegant, one-rack unit appliance.
Deep security at multi-gigabit speeds
Provide your large network with reliable, scalable, deep security from your business firewall — at multi-gigabit speeds — with the SonicWALL SuperMassive 9000 Series next-generation firewall (NGFW). Block sophisticated threats before they enter the network with Dell’s patented1 Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection (RFDPI) technology. At the same time, minimize latency for every connection on your network using a powerful, multi-core high-performance firewall architecture that operates at multi-gigabit speeds in a compact, power-efficient design. Plus, combine the power and intelligence of an integrated firewall and intrusion prevention system (IPS) in a single appliance.
Examination of every byte of traffic
Examine every byte of every packet for breakthrough protection and performance — regardless of port or protocol — using Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection. Plus, get one of the industry’s highest on-the-fly Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) decryption rates.
Inspection and control of application traffic
Identify productive and unproductive application traffic in real time, and control that traffic through powerful application-level policies on both a per-user and a per-group basis (along with schedules and exception lists). Intelligently and efficiently enforce acceptable-use policies with seamless integration of authentication servers, for detailed bandwidth management and enhanced control over productivity applications. Plus, you get integrated tools to identify custom applications in SonicOS.
Lower cost of administration
Reduce your total cost of ownership with a simple, intuitive user interface that provides a consolidated, single-pane management view. Ensure security effectiveness while slashing management burdens and organizational risk by enforcing intelligent policy decisions. You also gain deep, real-time visualization with thorough on- and off-box reporting capabilities.
Centralized and unified management
Easily consolidate management of SonicWALL security appliances —including the SuperMassive 9000 Series — with the Dell Global Management System (GMS). Reduce administrative and troubleshooting complexities with a unified, secure and extensible platform. Govern all operational aspects of your security infrastructure, including centralized policy management and enforcement, real-time event monitoring, analytics and reporting, and more. A single GMS instance can scale to thousands of distributed enterprise firewalls. Gain agility and ensure compliance when deploying firewall policies with GMS workflow automation. Manage network security by business processes and service levels rather than on a device-by-device basis.
