ICSA Labs - an independent division of Verizon (News - Alert) and an ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accredited and ISO 9001:2008 registered organization – provides third party testing and certification of security and health IT products, as well as network-connected devices.
The testing and certification by ICSA Labs is conducted and provided to measure product compliance, reliability and performance for security vendors around the globe.
As a provider of firewall and security software solution, SonicWALL has in its portfolio the E-Class Network Security Appliance (NSA) Series, which utilizes patented Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection (RFDPI) technology, in combination with multi-core specialized security microprocessors, to deliver gateway anti-virus, anti-spyware, intrusion prevention and Application Intelligence at high speed without sacrificing network performance.
