TZ Firewall – Entry level firewalls for small businesses

Which TZ firewall is right for your small business?

SonicWall TZ firewalls have been securing small business networks for over a decade, and these next generation firewalls continue to evolve even to this day, with highly acclaimed new entries like the SonicWall TZ350. So what makes the SonicWall TZ firewall such a mainstay on network security shortlists?

New SonicWALL TZ Firewalls

Entry-level firewalls with out of this world features

Advances in throughput and processing allow SonicWall TZ firewalls to pull off some slick tricks. For example, the new SonicWall SOHO 250 (classified as a TZ firewall) extends the capability to use Capture ATP cloud-based sandboxing even in a home office setting. Imagine having that level of advanced, enterprise-grade protection on your home network! The kids have a sandbox in the backyard, and you’ve got one guarding your family photos.

TZ Firewalls scan for zero day and other unknown cyber threats with behavior-based scanning that pairs machine learning with an ever-expanding archive of global threat intelligence. Fileless malware and memory exploits are put to rest by SonicWall TZ firewalls using Real Time Deep Memory Inspection (RTDMI), which can detect threats in fractions of a nanosecond. To stop ransomware and encrypted threats, TZ firewalls scan the entirety of all inbound and outbound traffic across multiple security processors with Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection (RFDPI).

Real Time Deep Memory Inspection

  • Included in SonicWall Capture Cloud
  • Spot threats before they demonstrate malicious behavior
  • Hackers cannot hide behind custom encryption
  • Detects threats in less than 100 nanoseconds

Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection

  • Included with every SonicWall TZ firewall
  • Scan inbound & outbound data with very low latency
  • High-speed traffic analysis with no buffering or proxying
  • Stop evasion techniques that most engines miss
  • Learn more about RFDPI

SonicWall sizing guides make it easy to compare TZ firewalls

Deciding which TZ firewall is right for your small business network can take some serious consideration. Maybe your small office would benefit from the power-over-ethernet features of the SonicWall TZ300-POE or TZ600-POE models. Most TZ firewalls also support wireless networking such as the SonicWall TZ350 Wireless-AC or TZ400 Wireless-AC. Which TZ firewall you choose ultimately comes down to your unique needs as a small business.

Buy a SonicWall TZ, Get a Rackmount Kit Free: Request a Quote or Live Chat now!

Get a free Rackmount.IT firewall mounting kit with your SonicWall TZ firewall purchase when you Request a Quote, Live Chat with a sales rep, or call us at 317-342-5112. Just mention this promo to your sales rep when you buy a SonicWall TZ350, TZ400TZ500, or TZ600 firewall and your rackmount kit comes free. Rackmount.IT standard kits are specially designed to fit your exact SonicWall TZ firewall model, transforming your desktop appliance into a standard server rack-compatible 1RU form factor. Not only does this reduce clutter and organize wiring, it ensures that nothing short of a tornado is going to cause your appliance to experience a fall or loss of power.

Declutter your workspace & bring ports to the front of the rack

Small businesses don’t always need beefy, mid-sized firewalls like the SonicWall NSa 3650 to keep safe. Sometimes the TZ350 is more than powerful enough for a small office or branch outpost where only 10 or 20 employees may use the network. And while big things may come in small packages, why should that small package have to sit on the corner of your desk? Rackmount.IT kits will secure your firewall in a 19-inch 1RU tray, designed to snugly house your appliance and attached power supply, freeing up space in your small office.

Rackmount kits also keep your server space organized by bringing your firewall’s console and RJ45 cables to the front of the rack where they can be easily accessed and organized, instead of hidden in the back of the server closet. That means no more side-shuffling over tangled cords with a flashlight in your mouth, feather duster in one hand, and clipboard in the other.

Liberate your ports. Liberate your workspace. Rackmounts give any small office that polished, professional feel.

Secure the power supply

Time is money, so every minute that your network is down is a dollar you didn’t earn. Downtime occurs for a variety of reasons: loss of connectivity, hardware malfunction, natural disasters, sabotage, you name it. However, a loose power cord is the last thing that should prevent your company from conducting business. Rackmount kits not only secure your firewall appliance, they also secure the power supply block, ensuring that your firewall won’t lose power in the case of a bump, tremor, shoved rack, slammed door, jostled cord, or whatever other absentminded mistake may otherwise disrupt your day-to-day.

Attractive, high-quality chassis

Did we mention these things look pretty nice too?
