It’s time for a SonicWall upgrade, but you still have several months of subscription services running on your old legacy firewall. You don’t want to miss out on the crazy-good new features of Next Gen Firewalls, but you also don’t want to lose licenses that you’ve already paid for! Well, good news.
If you’re ready for a SonicWall upgrade, your subscription services are ready to follow you. Qualified trade-ins through SonicWall’s Secure Upgrade program allow you to migrate your current licenses from your legacy appliance to your new, upgraded hardware. No man left behind.
Why Upgrade to a Next Gen SonicWall?
Reassembly Free Deep Packet Inspection
Traditional stateful inspections scan only the content of packet headers, meaning that malicious code and ransomware hidden in the data can slip through your firewall and land on your network. Accomplishing truly air-tight security at your gateway requires the use of Deep Packet Inspection, which allows for the scanning of the entire packet instead of just the header. But this solution in turn introduces a new problem: it can take forever to sift through all that data!
SonicWall’s Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection or RFDPI, crushes this issue by more fluidly and dynamically inspecting snippets of data packs over multiple engines in real-time, without a heavy UTM anchor slowing down your network. SonicWall holds a patent on the process (Patent #US8813221, if you want to read more), so you’ll have to decide whether you want to upgrade to a next-gen NSA appliance or make the choice between safety and performance speed.
Speed and security are not the only reasons to upgrade in 2018. The fact of the matter is, the firewall that you’ve been running for years just isn’t going to last forever; whether it succumbs to End of Life retirement or plain old entropy. As cyber criminals become more sophisticated, the capabilities of legacy firewalls will grow increasingly unable to protect your data. Even if you’re unimpressed with the newfangled promises of Next-Gen firewalls, chances are high that you’re going to end up buying one whether its today or three years down the road. SonicWall’s Secure Upgrade program is designed to incentivize upgrades with steep savings, so why not take advantage of them while they’re still available to you?
Flexible & Efficient Subscriptions
Life is just easier when you buy in bulk. You save a few dollars. You have the peace of mind in knowing there’s one less responsibility on your plate. You can worry less about what you have to do and care more about what you want to do. SonicWall’s Customer Advantage program, connected with their Secure Upgrade program, allows you to purchase more flexible and convenient service licenses for two-year or three-year subscriptions in addition to the normal one-year subscriptions. This benefits you by letting you to snag deep discounts and keep your budget clear for another 12 fiscal quarters instead of re-upping every year.
