SonicWALL SonicWALL E-Class NSA E6500 High Availability Firewalls SonicWALL E-Class NSA E6500 Dell SonicWALL NSA E6500 High Availability (HA) Unit 12597.00 The SonicWALL® E-Class Network Security Appliance (NSA) Series is an industry first—using a re-assembly free deep packet inspection engine in combination with multi-core specialized security microprocessors to deliver gateway anti-virus, anti-spyware and intrusion prevention at high-speed so you don’t have to sacrifice network performance.

Features of NSA E6500

Deep Packet Inspection & Multi-Threat Protection » Fully integrated deep packet inspection firewall, including gateway anti-virus, anti-spyware, intrusion prevention, and application firewall for perimeter and internal protection » Application Firewall feature-set for Application inspection and control » Automated and Dynamic Security Updates Powerful Performance » High-performance 16-core Multi-Core Architecture » 3.0 Gbps Stateful Packet Inspection Firewall1 » 2.5 Gbps 3DES and AES VPN Throughput1 » 750 Mbps Full Unified Threat Management (UTM) Inspection » Eight (8) 10/100/1000 Copper Gigabit Ethernet interfaces Enterprise Networking & Complete Business Continuity » Business application prioritization & QoS » Highly Redundant Hardware - Fans » Stateful Hardware Failover, ISP Failover, and WAN Redundancy » Integrated Server Load Balancing Feature-set Integration & Simplified Maanaagement » Integrated Network Security Policy and Management » Next-Generation Streamlined GUI » Powerful Wizards - Set-up, Firewall Policies, VPN, NAT » Front panel controls and LCD display provides easy network deployment and integration Deployment Flexibility » Data Center, Campus and Department Network Applications » Transparent L2 Bridge Mode » Integrated Wireless Switch Deployment

Flexible, Customizable Deployment Options:

Central-site Gateway: Deployed as a Central-site Gateway the NSA Series provides a high-speed scalable platform, providing network segmentation and security using VLAN’s and security zones. Redundancy features include WAN Load balancing, ISP fail-over and stateful high availability. Layer 2 Bridge: Mode Layer 2 bridge mode provides inline intrusion detection and prevention, adds an additional level of zone-based security to network segments or business units and simplifies layered security. Additionally, this enables administrators to limit access to sensitive data by specific business unit or database server.

Multi-layer Protection:

Remote Site Protection: The E-Class NSA Series incorporates ultra-high performance Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) that easily scales to thousands of end points and branch offices. Innovative SonicWALL Clean VPN™ technology prevents vulnerabilities and malicious code by decontaminating traffic before it enters the corporate network, in real time and without user intervention.
Gateway Protection: Easily integrated into existing environments, E-Class NSAs centralize gateway-level protection across all incoming and outgoing applications, files and content-based traffic, while controlling bandwidth and applications, without significantly impacting performance or scalability. Internal Protection: The highly-configurable E-Class NSA Series extends protection over the internal network by inspecting traffic over LAN interfaces and VLANs. Specifically designed for LAN network threats, the E-Class NSA Series monitors and responds to internally spreading malware, denial of service attacks, exploited software vulnerabilities, confidential documents, policy violations and network misuse. Desktop and Server Protection: In addition to network and gateway based protection, the E-Class NSA Series provides additional end point protection for workstations and servers through an enforced anti-virus and antispyware client with advanced heuristics. This enforced client solution delivers network access control by restricting Internet access on end points that do not have the latest signature or engine updates. When enforcement is enabled on the appliance, each end point is directed to download the enforced anti-virus and anti-spyware client without any administrator intervention, automating the deployment of end point security. Centralized Policy Management: The SonicWALL Global Management System (GMS) provides flexible, powerful and intuitive tools to centrally manage E-Class NSA configurations across distributed enterprises, view real-time monitoring metrics and integrate policy and compliance reporting.
