Unified Threat Management
The NSA 3500 provides application control, gateway anti-malware, intrusion prevention and Web content filtering on a high performance platform through its unified and simple management interface. This powerful combination delivers state-of-the-art security at a low total cost of ownership.
Virtual Private Networking
High-performance Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) easily scale to thousands of end points and branch offices. And SonicWALL Clean VPN™ technology protects the integrity of both your IPSec and SSL VPN traffic, securing your remote access tunnels and decontaminating the traffic running over it.
SonicWALL provides real-time insight and control of network traffic broken down by applications, users and content through intuitive on-board visualization. You decide which important applications to prioritize, which unproductive applications to throttle down and which unwanted application components to block, thus ensuring an efficient and safe network.
Gateway anti-virus and anti-spyware provide high performance protection against millions of unique pieces of malware with near zero latency and no file size limitation. This provides a first layer of defense and stops malware before it can reach systems on your network.
Tightly integrated, signature based network intrusion prevention protects against a comprehensive group of network and application layer threats by scanning packet payloads for exploits and attacks targeting critical internal systems.
The NSA 3500’s 4 core security platform along with SonicWALL’s patented Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection engine is capable of inspecting hundreds of thousands of connections simultaneously across all ports. The system provides 240 Mbps of Deep Packet Inspection across 6 GbE copper interfaces with nearly zero latency and without file size limitations.
