Protection without compromise

Applying the same security engine and services as our SuperMassive series, Dell Network Security Appliance (NSA) next-gen firewalls boost performance and reduce costs and complexity for distributed enterprises, SMBs, branch offices, school campuses and other public institutions.
Dell SonicWALL NSA Series — Enterprise-class firewall protection

Next-generation security

The NSA Series combines Dell’s patented Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection* (RFDPI) single-pass threat prevention engine with a powerful, scalable multi-core architecture. By combining on-the-fly SSL decryption and inspection, an intrusion prevention system (IPS) with sophisticated anti-evasion technology and a network-based malware protection system that leverages the power of the cloud, the NSA Series provides next-generation threat protection . It offers ultralow latency and among the highest number of concurrent connections and connections-per-second rates in its class .

As many as 24 specialized security cores spread the network’s load evenly, so you won’t find your performance lessening when you are exposed to heavy traffic conditions or malicious content.

RFDPI technology scans every byte

The NSA Series uses the high-performance RFDPI technology to look at all traffic and examine every byte of every packet, regardless of port or protocol, to detect and block threats before they ever enter the network . The patented RFDPI engine helps eliminate the protection-for-performance trade-off and offers an intrusion prevention system (IPS) that features sophisticated anti-evasion technology.

Simplified structure and low costs

The NSA Series makes it easy to configure, deploy and maintain your security solutions. Quick, easy setup, excellent power efficiency and a simple, intuitive design help lower the cost of ownership.
