Dell has updated its SonicWall network security appliance platform to better protect small and medium-sized business (SMB) customers.
The company said that the new line of SonicWall firewall appliances will better serve the SMB space by adding packet inspection platforms capable of analysing all network traffic and detecting possible malware and advanced persistent threat (APT) attacks on a network.
Ranging from six to 24 core deployments, the network appliances will sport the Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection security platform and will be able to analyse traffic in real time without adversely impacting network latency.
Additionally, the company said that the new firewall systems would be easily managed, allowing administrators to protect their networks without significantly adding to staff or time requirements, a critical factor for SMBs who often lack large IT staffs and specialised network security personnel.
Dell said the new line of SonicWall appliances aims to provide SMB customers with security capabilities and tools that had previously been the sole domain of large enterprises and IT service providers.
Executive director of product management at Dell Patrick Sweeney said: “We used the architecture found in our flagship SuperMassive Next-Gen Firewall line developed for the most demanding carriers and enterprises.
“This new NSA Series provides medium-sized business customers with the same high level of security, control, and performance available to the enterprise, in a solution that also offers our acclaimed ease of use and high value.”
