Dell Introduces Multi-Gigabit Throughput Next-Generation Firewall to the Enterprise with Launch of Dell SonicWALL SuperMassive 9000 Series
ROUND ROCK, Texas --(Business Wire)--
Dell (News - Alert) today announced the Dell
SonicWALL™ SuperMassive™ 9000 Series Next-Generation Firewall
(NGFW), built from the ground up to
meet the needs of enterprise networks by offering security,
productivity, performance, and scalability without compromise. Providing
complete advanced threat protection including high performance intrusion
prevention and anti-malware at multi-gigabit speeds with near zero
latency, the Dell SonicWALL (News - Alert) SuperMassive 9000 Series offers
security and performance using a high core density architecture in
an elegant one-rack appliance that also saves space, power, and cooling
The SuperMassive 9000 Series includes the 9600, 9400, and 9200 models
and offers full IPS and application control performance up to 12Gbps.
Its compact 1U power efficient high port density form factor is designed
with the total cost of ownership (TCO) and power/space/cooling (PSC)
requirements of modern enterprise data centers in mind. With 4 SFP+
10GbE interfaces, 16 1GbE interfaces and a dedicated management
interface, the SuperMassive9000 Series can be deployed in a variety of
networks in either a traditional gateway security deployment or as an
additional layer of security for traditional networks in a transparent
layer 2 bridge or wire-mode deployment.
"Our performance has increased 10-fold after deploying Dell SonicWALL
SuperMassive firewalls," said Joe Gomes, director technology and
systems, at University of South Florida Pediatrics Epidemiology Center.
"We were not only able to save $100,000 through this investment, but
also increase capacity and bandwidth to support a new research
"The volume, form and sophistication of malware inflict huge
vulnerability challenges on the corporate network," said Patrick
Sweeney, executive director, product management, Dell SonicWALL. "At the
same time, enterprises struggle to balance the need for network access
and performance with network protection. The Dell SonicWALL SuperMassive
9000 Series is designed to solve exactly these enterprise challenges
through technology generally associated with carrier-class networks."
Unlike legacy firewall and intrusion prevention technologies, the Dell
SonicWALL SuperMassive 9000 Series blocks threats before they enter the
network by looking at all traffic, regardless of port or protocol, using
Dell SonicWALL's patented Reassembly-Free
Deep Packet Inspection® (RFDPI) technology. The RFDPI engine scans
every byte of every packet of network traffic across all ports and
delivers full content inspection to help eliminate threats and includes
full inspection of SSL-encrypted traffic as well as non-proxyable
applications. It also provides protection against millions of unique
malware variants without file size, performance or latency limitations.
While RFDPI protects the network against threats, the Dell SuperMassive
9000 Series' Application Intelligence and Control features help ensure
optimal network productivity and bandwidth through the identification of
productive and unproductive application traffic in real-time which can
then be controlled through powerful application-level policies. Network
administrators can schedule application controls based on business
priority and can throttle unproductive applications and block
potentially dangerous applications.
