In today's distributed enterprise, efficient utilization of bandwidth, increased security, & ease of deployment & management are important factors when considering a WAN acceleration solution. Throughput can be exhausted by collaboration applications such as Microsoft SharePoint & Windows File Sharing. At the same time, due to the popularity of Web 2.0 & social media, an exponential increase in Internet traffic is already overburdening WAN bandwidth. This inefficient utilization of available bandwidth results in higher latency, lowering employee productivity. Spending more on increased bandwidth or enhanced services, or purchasing disparate point solutions, does not resolve the problem.
The SonicWall WAN Acceleration Appliance (WXA) Series enables you to easily & securely enhance WAN application performance at remote & branch offices, thus improving the end user experience that leads to increased productivity. Unlike standalone WAN acceleration products that are deployed either behind the firewall or between the firewall & WAN router, the SonicWall WXA Series is an integrated add-on to the SonicWall Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW). The solution enables comprehensive scanning for intrusions & malware before accelerating the traffic across the VPN or dedicated WAN link, thus maximizing security & performance. The WXA optimizes performance & reduces latency by transmitting only new or changed data across the network after initial file transfer, resulting in dramatically reduced traffic volumes. In addition, the managing firewall enables you to identify & prioritize application traffic while the WXA minimizes traffic between sites.
The SonicWall solution streamlines the placement, deployment, configuration, routing, management & integration of the WXA with other components such as VPNs. Consolidating WAN acceleration with core NGFW technologies including intrusion prevention, anti-malware, & application intelligence, control & visualization at the gateway significantly increases security while lowering the total cost of ownership.
Drastically simplify deployment, routing & integration of multiple WXA appliances across your network through complete provisioning & configuration by a SonicWall NGFW.
Scale to meet the needs of a growing user population through clustering, which enables several SonicWall WXA solutions to be linked together at each location. Reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) by increasing efficiency & overall utilization of your existing WAN bandwidth, thus avoiding costly WAN upgrades.
WAN acceleration client software allows traffic initiated from remote Windows PCs or laptops running NetExtender to be accelerated.
