Dell introduces SonicWALL SuperMassive 9000 series multi-gigabit throughput

Infotech Lead America: Dell launched the Dell SonicWALL SuperMassive 9000 Series Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) designed to meet the needs of enterprise networks by offering security, productivity, performance and scalability.The Dell SonicWALL SuperMassive 9000 Series offers carrier-class network security using a high core density architecture to provide complete advanced threat protection including high performance intrusion prevention and anti-malware at multi-gigabit speeds with near zero latency.

The Dell SonicWALL SuperMassive 9000 Series is designed as a one-rack appliance that saves space, power, and cooling costs. It 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 to suit the total cost of ownership (TCO) and power/space/cooling (PSC) requirements of modern enterprise data centers.

Dell SonicWALL SuperMassive 9000 Series

The SuperMassive 9000 Series can be deployed in a variety of networks either in 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. It has 4 SFP+ 10GbE interfaces, 16 1GbE interfaces and a dedicated management interface.

The Dell SonicWALL SuperMassive 9000 Series blocks threats before they enter the network by scritinizing all traffic 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 and fully inspects SSL-encrypted traffic as well as non-proxyable applications. It also provides protection against millions of unique malware variants regardless of file size, performance or latency specifications.

RFDPI protects the network against threats while the Dell SuperMassive 9000 Series’ Application Intelligence and Control features ensure optimal network productivity and bandwidth by identifying 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 to throttle unproductive applications and block potentially dangerous applications.
