The Dell™ SonicWALL™ Network Security Appliance (NSA) 5600 is a Next-Generation Firewall for growing mid-sized organizations that need high performance. It integrates multi-core hardware and enterprise-class features with Dell SonicWALL's Reassembly
As a Next-Generation Firewall for medium-size organizations, the Dell™ SonicWALL™ Network Security Appliance (NSA) 5600 makes it easy for organizations to be both secure and productive. Coupled with Dell’s patented Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection® (RFDPI) single-pass threat prevention engine, Dell SonicWALL Next-Generation Firewalls provide industry leading protection, performance, and scalability with the highest number of concurrent connections, lowest latency, no file size limitations and superior connections per second in their class.
The NSA 5600 appliance offers an extensive array of advanced security and networking features in an accessible and affordable platform that is easy to deploy and manage in a wide variety of environments.
The NSA 5600 provides intrusion prevention, application control, gateway anti-malware, SSL decryption and inspection and URL filtering on a high performance platform through its comprehensive and intuitive management interface. This powerful combination ensures state-of-the-art security at a low total cost of ownership.
Dell SonicWALL provides real-time insight and control of network traffic broken down by applications, users and content through intuitive on-board visualization. The ability to prioritize important applications, throttle down unproductive applications and block unwanted application components ensures an efficient and safe network.
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 Dell SonicWALL SuperMassive™ 9000 Series and E-Class Network Security Appliance (NSA), NSA and TZ Series appliances for optimal ease of use and simplified deployment.
Gateway anti-virus and anti-spyware provide high performance protection against millions of unique pieces of malware with near zero latency and no file size limitation. This provides a first layer of defense and stops malware before it can reach systems on your network.
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 that attack critical internal systems.
SonicWALL Mobile Connect™
SonicWALL Mobile Connect, a single unified client app for Apple® iOS and Google® Android™, provides smartphone and tablet users superior network-level access to corporate and academic resources over encrypted SSL VPN connections.
Virtual Private Networking.
High-performance Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) easily scale to thousands of end points and branch offices. And Dell 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.
Dell SonicWALL’s patented Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection engine combined with the NSA 5600’s 10-core security platform is capable of inspecting hundreds of thousands of simultaneous connections across all ports. Deep Packet Inspection is provided across all interfaces with nearly zero latency and without file size limitation.
SonicOS provides key features designed to ensure the security of your network with an intuitive graphical user interface for increased functionality and ease of use.
Deep Packet Inspection firewall.
Dell 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 layer.
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 Dell 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 tablet, phone and PC platforms. The SSL VPN client can also be automatically pushed out to the client and auto-configured to provide secure layer 3 connectivity.
Application Traffic Analytics
The Dell SonicWALL Application Traffic Analytics solution provides organizations with powerful insight into application traffic, bandwidth utilization and security threats while providing enhanced troubleshooting and forensics capabilities. Businesses can easily identify non-business applications consuming network resources to modify usage policies accordingly.
Secure network optimization.
Stay ahead of today’s constantly evolving landscape of threats and application-related issues with an advanced security platform that consolidates Dell SonicWALL Next-Generation Firewall features for enterprises along with WAN acceleration for distributed offices to maximize security and control with minimum network latency.
Secure wireless controller.
Dell 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 Dell SonicWALL Clean Wireless technology.
Historical reporting on user activity is available through Dell SonicWALL Analyzer software and real-time application analysis through powerful visualization tools.
Centralized policy management
The Dell SonicWALL Global Management System (GMS®) provides flexible, powerful and intuitive tools to manage configurations, view real-time monitoring metrics and integrate policy and compliance reporting, all from a central location.
Your network will continue to operate without interruption even if there is a hardware or software failure with Active/Passive failover. Stateful synchronization across the appliances enables failover without interruption to existing network traffic and VPN tunnels.
