The SonicWALL® SuperMassive™ E10000 Series is SonicWALL’s Next-Generation Firewall platform designed for large networks to deliver scalability, reliability and deep security at multi-gigabit speeds. Built to meet the needs of enterprise, government, university, and service provider deployments, the SuperMassive E10000 Series is ideal for securing enterprise networks, data centers and server farms. Combining its massively multi-core architecture and SonicWALL’s patented Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection™ (RFDPI) technology, the SuperMassive E10000 Series delivers industry-leading application control, intrusion prevention, malware protection and SSL inspection at multi-gigabit speeds. The SonicWALL E10000 Series is designed with power, space, and cooling (PSC) in mind, providing the leading Gbps/Watt in the industry for application control and threat prevention.
SonicWALL’s Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection engine scans every byte of every packet delivering full content inspection of the entire stream while providing high performance and low latency. This technology is superior to outdated proxy designs that reassemble content using sockets bolted to anti-virus programs that are plagued with inefficiencies and overhead of socket memory thrashing that leads to high latency, low performance and file size limitations. The RFDPI engine delivers full content inspection to eliminate threats before they enter the network and provides protection against millions of unique malware variants without file size, performance or latency limitations. The RFDPI engine also provides full inspection of SSL-encrypted traffic as well as non-proxyable applications enabling complete protection regardless of transport or protocol.
Intuitive AppFlow Visualization tools allow for the identification of productive and unproductive application traffic in real time which can then be controlled through powerful application-level policies. Application control can be exercised on both a per-user and a per-group bases, along with schedules and exception lists. All application signatures are continuously updated by SonicWALL’s research team. Additionally, SonicWALL’s advanced operating system, SonicOS, provides integrated tools that allow for custom application identification.
The SonicWALL SuperMassive E10000 Series is built with a focus on high performance, scalability and high availability, providing large enterprises a platform to address their most demanding security needs. This combination of scalability and performance is a result of a powerful and massively scalable multi-core architecture paired with SonicWALL’s proprietary deep packet inspection engine that can scale linearly to any number of processing cores. Environments that see their network security needs grow with time can upgrade their system to increase the available performance of their SuperMassive platform.
The SuperMassive E10000 Series is engineered to deliver ultra-low latency Deep Packet Inspection that large enterprises demand. The SuperMassive fabric interconnect provides 240 Gbps of nonblocking bandwidth with less than 1 μs latency for unhindered communication between the 96 processing cores and the 6 x 10-Gbps SFP+ and the 16 x 1-Gbps SFP ports.
While stateful packet inspection is still necessary, it alone is insufficient to protect against today’s application and content-borne threats. Full deep packet inspection capabilities like intrusion prevention, anti-malware and application control provide a significantly increased level of security and network control, but must do so without diminishing network performance. SonicWALL’s patented RFDPI engine provides a highly-efficient single-pass design that consolidates all security features into a unified scanning and policy engine, enabling the platform to deliver industry-leading deep packet inspection performance.
