The SonicWall Network Security appliance (NSa) series provides organizations that range in scale from mid-sized networks to distributed enterprises and data centers with advanced threat prevention in a highperformance security platform. Utilizing innovative deep learning technologies in the SonicWall Capture Cloud Platform, the NSa series delivers the automated real-time breach detection and prevention organizations need.
Network control and flexibility
At the core of the NSa series is SonicOS, SonicWall’s feature-rich operating system. SonicOS provides organizations with the network control and flexibility they require through application intelligence and control, real-time visualization, an intrusion prevention system (IPS) featuring sophisticated anti-evasion technology, high-speed virtual private networking (VPN) and other robust security features. Using application intelligence and control, network administrators can identify and categorize productive applications from those that are unproductive or potentially dangerous, and control that traffic through powerful applicationlevel policies on both a per-user and a per-group basis (along with schedules and exception lists). Business-critical applications can be prioritized and allocated more bandwidth while non essential applications are bandwidthlimited. Real-time monitoring and visualization provides a graphical representation of applications, users and bandwidth usage for granular insight into traffic across the network.
Secure, High-speed Wireless
Combine an NSa series next-generation firewall with a SonicWall SonicWave 802.11ac Wave 2 wireless access point to create a highspeed wireless network security solution. NSa series firewalls and SonicWave access points both feature 2.5 GbE ports that enable multi-gigabit wireless throughput offered in Wave 2 wireless technology. The firewall scans all wireless traffic coming into and going out of the network using deep packet inspection technology and then removes harmful threats such as malware and intrusions, even over encrypted connections. Additional security and control capabilities such as content filtering, application control and intelligence and Capture Advanced Threat Protection can be run on the wireless network to provide added layers of protection.
