SonicWALL launches advanced firewall system
Dubai, March 29, 2010
SonicWALL, a leading secure network infrastructure company, has launched its new, advanced Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) firewall at RSA Conference 2010.
The SonicWALL E-Class Network Security Appliance (NSA) E8500 is a firewall with application intelligence and control designed for the enterprise, said a statement.
The NSA E8500 extends the protection of SonicWALL’s network security appliances to include the management and control of data and applications that pass through the network.
The NSA E8500 enhances this threat protection with intuitive visualisation tools that offer network administrators a wide range of data points on applications traversing the network, including who is using them, as well as the potential security impact. The product is expected to ship in the second quarter this year.
Intuitive traffic visualisation allows the NSA E8500 to display traffic intelligence in an easy-to-understand form that enables fast network assessment.
The integration of advanced networking and remote access technologies allows SonicWALL to verify and defend the security of traditional and mobile wireless networks, users and applications — and their endpoint devices — while scanning and disinfecting the data stream across platforms and perimeters.
“We plan to deliver security solutions that evolve along with the organisations and the threats they encounter: dynamically and globally. With the NSA E8500 we give customers worldwide the ability to control, manage and protect their global networks seamlessly and automatically,” stated said Patrick Sweeney, vice president of Product Management at SonicWALL.
SonicWALL also launched its Global Management System (GMS) Virtual Appliance and its vision of Dynamic Security for the Global Network, further strengthening its enterprise portfolio.-TradeArabia News Service
