SonicWall ‘leader in SMB firewalls’
Dubai, July 28, 2009
SonicWall, a leading secure network company, has been positioned by Gartner, an IT research and advisory firm, as a vendor at the forefront of making multifunction firewall products that are built for SMB requirements.
SonicWall's family of network security appliances combines robust security services with high-speed deep packet inspection to provide small and mid-size organizations the best protection currently available.
SonicWall TZ and Network Security Appliance (NSA) firewalls are designed to reduce cost, risk and complexity by integrating automated and dynamic security capabilities for comprehensive protection and maximum performance.
“The Leaders quadrant of the ‘Magic Quadrant for SMB Multifunction Firewalls’ contains vendors at the forefront of making and selling multifunction firewall products that are built for SMB requirements,” according to the authors of the Gartner report, Adam Hils and Greg Young.
“The requirements necessary for leadership include a wide range of models to cover SMB use cases, support for multiple features, and a management and reporting capability that's designed for ease of use.
“Vendors in this quadrant lead the market in offering new safeguarding features, and in enabling customers to deploy them inexpensively without crippling network performance. These vendors also have a good track record of avoiding vulnerabilities in their security products. Common characteristics include reliability, consistent throughput, and a product that's intuitive to manage and administer.”
Every SonicWall TZ and NSA series appliance can be configured into a customised network security solution, using an expanding array of seamlessly integrated services for gateway anti-virus, anti-spyware, intrusion prevention, enforced desktop anti-virus, content filtering, comprehensive anti-spam and more.
SonicWall appliances also intelligently enforce and dynamically update each of these services as new updates become available. With one complete solution from SonicWall, small and mid-size organisations can avoid the integration and maintenance problems that often result from sourcing, installing, and maintaining security products and services from multiple vendors.
“We consider our positioning in the ‘Leaders’ quadrant by Gartner as confirmation that we continue to be committed to our SMB customers, providing them with comprehensive and powerful network security solutions,” said Patrick Sweeney, vice president, product management for SonicWall.
“With our recently announced revolutionary TZ series we continue to innovate and execute on our product roadmaps for both the TZ and NSA product lines to further enhance our market position within the SMB multifunction firewall space,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
