The SonicOS platform.

At the heart of every SonicWALL® firewall, SonicOS uses deep packet inspection technology in combination with multi-core specialized security microprocessors to deliver Application Intelligence, Control, and real-time Visualisation, intrusion prevention, high-speed virtual private networking (VPN) technology and other robust security features.


Deep Packet Inspection firewall.


SonicWALL Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection™ technology scans against multiple application types and protocols to protect against internal and external threats at both the application layer and the network layer.


WAN Acceleration


The WAN Acceleration Appliance (WXA) Series provides WAN Acceleration to reduce application latency, conserve bandwidth and significantly optimise WAN performance. The WXA Series appliances are provisioned, managed and controlled by existing SonicWALL E-Class Network Security Appliance (NSA), NSA and TZ Series appliances for optimal ease of use and simplified deployment.


Application Intelligence, Control and Visualisation.


SonicWALL Application Intelligence and Control provides granular control and real-time visualisation of applications to guarantee bandwidth prioritisation, prevent data leakage, and deliver more precise control over network traffic.


Deep Packet Inspection for SSL Encrypted Traffic (DPI-SSL).


DPI-SSL transparently decrypts, inspects and re-encrypts SSL encrypted traffic to allow security services to be applied to all traffic that traverses SonicWALL Next-Generation Firewalls.


SSL VPN remote access.


Integrated SSL VPN technology enables clientless, remote access to email, files, intranets, and applications from a variety of platforms. An SSL-VPN client can also be automatically pushed out to the client and auto-configured to provide secure layer 3 connectivity.


Secure wireless controller.


SonicWALL firewalls can be extended with secure wireless access points, SonicPoints, to provide seamless and secure 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless networks protected with the SonicWALL Clean Wireless technology.


Powerful reporting.


Historical reporting on user activity is available through SonicWALL Viewpoint™ software and real-time application analysis through powerful visualisation tools.


Intuitive management.


Powerful set-up wizards make it easy to quickly set up VPN Tunnels, policies and network rules, which can then be fine-tuned through an intuitive Web interface. All application and signature updates are obtained automatically by the firewall and are effective immediately without reboots or downtime. A management LCD screen eases deployment and integration in a data-center.


Business continuity.


Your network will continue to operate without interruption even if there is a hardware or software failure with Active/Passive failover. Stateful synchronization across the appliances enables failover without interruption to existing network traffic and VPN tunnels.


Advanced clustering.


The SuperMassive E10000 Series support a number of advanced deployment scenarios for increased throughput and redundancy beyond the common Active/Passive and Active/Active two unit deployments. The E10000 series can be deployed in a variety of Active/Active clustering deployments allowing for assembly of stateful HA pair, stateless-HA pairs and single-unit “nodes” within the cluster. A Cluster can consist of up to 4 nodes, each node containing one or two units, for distribution of flows across all nodes with linear performance scaling.


Centralized Policy Management.


The SonicWALL Global Management System (GMS ®) provides flexible, powerful and intuitive tools to manage configurations, view real-time monitoring metrics and integrate policy and compliance reporting, all from a central location.


3G Failover


By leveraging recent advances in 3G wireless broadband technologies, SonicWALL TZ 210 and TZ 200 appliances enable organisations to use the Internet even in locations where wired broadband access is unavailable or requires time-consuming installation and provisioning.


Intrusion prevention.


Tightly integrated, signature based network intrusion prevention protects against a comprehensive array of network and application layer threats by scanning packet payloads for attacks and exploits targeting critical internal systems. This feature is included in both Gateway Security Services and the Comprehensive Gateway Security Suite.




SonicWALL Gateway Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware delivers intelligent, real-time network security protection against sophisticated application layer and content-based attacks through a configurable, high-performance deep packet inspection architecture.

Every SonicWALL TZ, NSA and E-Class NSA Series appliance can be configured into a customized network security solution, with a choice of individual security services and bundled solutions.


Comprehensive Gateway Security Suite.

The SonicWALL Comprehensive Gateway Security Suite is a powerful security solution for businesses of all sizes, as it includes Gateway Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Intrusion Prevention and Application Intelligence and Control Service; Content Filtering Service; ViewPoint Reporting Software and 24x7 technical support.


Gateway Security Services.


SonicWALL Gateway Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Intrusion Prevention, and Application Intelligence and Control Service delivers intelligent, real-time network security protection against sophisticated application layer and content-based attacks, including viruses, spyware, worms, and more. Configurable tools prevent data leakage and enable visualisation of network traffic.


Content filtering.


SonicWALL Content Filtering Service blocks multiple categories of objectionable Web content and provides the ideal combination of control and flexibility to ensure the highest levels of productivity and protection.


ViewPoint Reporting Software.


SonicWALL ViewPoint software graphically illustrates network activity like bandwidth utilisation and observed threats, generating highly customizable, easy-to-read reports.


24x7 technical support.


With SonicWALL Dynamic Support 24x7, your business can receive round-the-clock telephone and Web-based support, access to SonicWALL electronic support tools and more.


Additional security services and bundles.

TotalSecure solutions.


SonicWALL TotalSecure delivers the convenience of all-in-one network protection by combining Gateway Security Services, content filtering, firmware updates and 24X7 support onto a high-performance deep packet inspection firewall, creating a powerful, single security solution.


Comprehensive Anti-Spam Service.


SonicWALL Comprehensive Anti-Spam Service blocks spam phishing and virus-laden emails at the gateway. With one click, the service immediately starts blocking junk email and saving valuable network bandwidth.


Enforced Client Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware.


Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware delivers comprehensive virus and spyware protection for laptops, desktops and servers using a single integrated client and offers automated network-wide enforcement of anti-virus and anti-spyware policies, definitions and software updates.
