The SonicWALL® E-Class Network Security Appliance (NSA) E8510 is a premier enterprise Next-Generation Firewall delivering integrated Application Intelligence and Control and real-time situational visualization and awareness. Combining SonicWALL Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection™ (RFDPI) with a powerful multi-core platform, it can analyze and control thousands of unique encrypted or unencrypted applications. As an inline solution, the NSA E8510 leverages existing infrastructure while adding an extra layer of network security and visibility. As a security gateway, it adds secure remote access, high availability and more.
As the flagship of the SonicWALL NSA lineup, the NSA E8510 combines sophisticated software with a high performance multi-core hardware design to provide multi-gigabit scanning performance.
Next-Generation Firewall protection.
State-of-the-art network security is achieved by combining deep packet inspection firewalling with intrusion prevention and application control to defend your network from the latest network and application based threats.
SonicWALL provides real-time insight and control of network traffic broken down by applications, users and content. The ability to prioritize important applications, throttle down unproductive applications and block unwanted application components ensures an efficient and safe network.
SonicWALL's patented Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection engine combined with the E8510's 16 core security platform is capable of inspecting hundreds of thousands of connections simultaneously across all ports. With nearly zero latency and without file size limitations, the system provides 10 GbE connectivity for deployment to environments with a 10GbE infrastructure, and more than 2 Gbps of full deep packet inspection throughpu
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.
Tightly integrated, signature based network intrusion prevention protects against a comprehensive array of network and application layer threats by scanning packet payloads for attacks and exploits targeting critical internal systems.
The WAN Acceleration Appliance (WXA) Series provides WAN Acceleration to reduce application latency, conserve bandwidth and significantly optimize WAN performance. The WXA Series appliances are provisioned, managed and controlled by existing SonicWALL E-Class Network Security Appliance (NSA), NSA and TZ Series appliances for optimal ease of use and simplified deployment.
Deep Packet Inspection firewall.
SonicWALL Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection™ technology scans against multiple application types and protocols to protect against internal and external threats at both the application layer and the network laye
Deep Packet Inspection for SSL Encrypted Traffic (DPI-SSL).
DPI-SSL transparently decrypts, inspects and re-encrypts SSL encrypted traffic to allow security services to be applied to all traffic that traverses SonicWALL Next-Generation Firewalls.
SSL VPN remote access.
Integrated SSL VPN technology enables clientless, remote access to email, files, intranets, and applications from a variety of platforms. An SSL-VPN client can also be automatically pushed out to the client and auto-configured to provide secure layer connectivity.
Secure wireless controller.
SonicWALL firewalls can be extended with secure wireless access points, SonicPoints, to provide seamless and secure 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless networks protected with the SonicWALL Clean Wireless technology.
Powerful set-up wizards make it easy to quickly set up VPN Tunnels, policies and network rules, which can then be fine-tuned through an intuitive Web interface. All application and signature updates are obtained automatically by the firewall and are effective immediately without reboots or downtime. A management LCD screen eases deployment and integration in a data-center.
