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?
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).

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.
