Dell, Inc. has introduced the Dell SonicWALL SuperMassive 9000 series next-generation firewall.
The SuperMassive 9000 Series includes the 9600, 9400, and 9200 models and offers full IPS and application control performance up to 12Gbps. Its 1U high port density form factor is designed with the total cost of ownership (TCO) and power/space/cooling (PSC) requirements.
With 4 SFP+ 10GbE interfaces, 16 1GbE interfaces and management interface, the SuperMassive 9000 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.
"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.
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 application-level policies.
