Dell SonicWALL TZ Analyzes Encrypted SSL Traffic

Dell introduced new SonicWALL TZ Series firewalls with the ability to analyze encrypted SSL traffic, and an integrated wireless controller.

The new TZ firewalls, which are aimed at small businesses and large, multi-site distributed organizations, leverages multi-core security processors for high-performance Unified Threat Management (UTM).

The company cites intrusion prevention speeds of up to 1.1Gbps. Offering 1GbE network interfaces in a compact desktop form-factor appliance, the Dell SonicWALL TZ Series delivers anti-malware protection, intrusion prevention, content and URL filtering, application control, and secure mobile access for laptops, smartphones and tablets. With the SonicWALL Mobile Connect unified client, the new TZs provide secure mobile access to Google Android, Mac OS X, Kindle Fire and laptop users. The integrated, secure wireless controller in the new TZ Series supports the high-speed 802.11ac wireless standard.

Dell said the patented reassembly-free deep packet inspection engine allows the SonicWALL TZ Series to scan every byte of every packet on all ports and protocols with almost zero latency.
