SonicWALL Introduces DPI-based UTM Appliance for Branch Offices

SonicWALL introduced its next generation of Unified Threat Management (UTM) appliance designed specifically to address the challenges of application management and bandwidth growth. The new SonicWALL NSA 240 accelerates and prioritizes business critical network traffic, while attacking network threats, misuse of network resources and unreliable or unavailable Internet connectivity.

The NSA 240 combines multiple technologies into a single appliance, protecting networks against an array of network security and content attacks, delivering granular inspection and control over a variety of networked applications and accelerating overall network performance. The design leverages a "Reassembly-free Deep Packet Inspection" (RFDPI) engine, which incorporates object-based contextual controls over user identity and access, application identity and access, data leakage, and network optimization, as well as granular reporting, auditing and forensics.

The NSA 240 also enhances resiliency through the integration of an add-on high speed 3G or Modem card, providing continual network operation when hard line connections are disrupted.

The NSA 240 is priced at $1,195 and the NSA 240 Total Secure is priced $1,770.
