Dell
today announced that the Dell SonicWALL SuperMassive E10800 next-generation firewall (NGFW), has earned the coveted Recommended rating in the NSS Labs Next-Generation Firewall Security Value Map for the fourth consecutive year. NSS Labs is one of the industry’s most influential third-party evaluators providing independent validation for IT administrators seeking the best-performing enterprise-class security products to protect their networks. While many vendors fall in and out of the NSS Labs Recommended quadrant, Dell Security is one of only three vendors to have earned this distinction for four consecutive years. This rating underscores Dell Security’s ability to arm customers with proven solutions to successfully combat cyber criminals and evolving attacks. It also affirms that the extremely high performing and scalable SuperMassive E10800 is the right enterprise security platform to solve the security and massive data and capacity demands of the largest of data centers.

Placement in the Recommended quadrant is the highest rating given by NSS Labs. Based on the methodology, the program is one of the industry’s most comprehensive, real-world tests of next-generation firewalls. To achieve the Recommended rating, the SonicWALL SuperMassive E10800 NGFW:

  • Demonstrated one of the highest security effectiveness ratings in the industry, with scores of 100 percent in stability and reliability, firewall, application control, and identity awareness tests
  • Blocked 98.83 percent of exploits during continuous live testing
  • Tested 100 percent effective in countering advanced evasion, obfuscation and fragmentation techniques
  • Demonstrated high performance with 10,461 Gbps of threat protection performance

The Dell SonicWALL SuperMassive E10000 Next-Generation Firewall Series delivers effective firewall, intrusion prevention and deep security scaled to the largest networks at multi-gigabit speeds, without the complexity of having to manage separate appliances, GUIs and deployments. It utilizes Dell’s patented Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection® engine to detect and prevent the advanced evasion techniques used to conceal traditional intrusion attacks at all layers of the network stack. The solution uniquely scans every byte of every packet of inbound and outbound traffic, regardless of port and protocol, and delivers full content inspection of both plain text and SSL encrypted traffic.

Dell SonicWALL’s IPS adds to these deep security capabilities with advanced context awareness that includes geo-location visibility, user identification, and application identification. Dell SonicWALL next-generation firewalls also offer inspection and identification of documents and content, and can scan for administrator-specified custom content like text strings and credit card numbers.

The SonicWALL SuperMassive E10000 Series can be deployed as an inline bump-in-the-wire mode to provide an additional layer of security in an existing network without introducing complexity or requiring topology changes. It also can be deployed at the network perimeter, adding next-generation firewall threat prevention and security capabilities, and lowering Total Cost of Ownership by providing equipment consolidation and ease of use.
