SonicWall has recently announced the expansion of its threat protection offerings with the NSa 3700, a multi-gigabit security appliance designed to thwart attacks targeting government agencies, retail, K-12, higher education and enterprises. The company also introduced several product updates, including closed-network threat protection, next-generation analytics, enhanced cloud-native security management and a rebranded Wireless Network Manager.
“Governments and other large enterprises are more challenged to defend large-scale networks against rapidly evolving and increasingly sophisticated threats amid the COVID-19 crisis,” said SonicWall President and CEO Bill Conner. “These new and enhanced solutions offer organisations an elastic and scalable cloud model to enable leaders to close critical security gaps with robust, enterprise-grade threat protection using next-generation technology. As the cyber arms race continues to escalate, SonicWall looks to equip organisations with proven security at a low total cost of ownership and high security efficacy.”
SonicWall appliance to protect heavily targeted sectors
Powered by SonicOS 7.0, the new SonicWall NSa 3700 firewall delivers modern UX/UI, advanced security controls, plus critical networking and management capabilities, to increase visibility and help defend against today’s increasingly targeted attacks.
With the new NSa 3700, organisations gain much needed multi-gigabit protection and enterprise-grade threat performance with one of the lowest total costs of ownership in its class. Offering 22,500 connections per second, supporting up to 750,000 concurrent DPI connections and up to 3,000 site-to-site VPN tunnels, the NSa 3700 ensures security is scalable across the largest environments.
Closed-network threat protection
As reported in the 2021 SonicWall Cyber Threat Report, the government sector saw a 21% increase in ransomware attacks last year, making it a rising target for cyber-criminals as work environments adapted to changes during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Using the new CSa 1.2, the award-winning SonicWall Capture Security appliance (CSa) 1000 can now be deployed without the need to connect to external resources, which is important for organisations operating air-gapped networks.
Reduce risk with advanced threat data
To help business and security stakeholders mitigate hidden risks across networks, applications and users, SonicWall Next-Generation Analytics 3.0 transforms and delivers threat data from its global network of over 1.1 million sensors into actionable guidance via an information-rich executive dashboard.
Analytics 3.0 allows organisations to mitigate suspicious behaviour upon discovery and find threats quickly with a 25% faster response time. New enhancements to Analytics enable it to take advantage of cloud elasticity to scale on-demand, delivering fast response times to changing workloads. This new and enhanced cloud-native architecture provides enhanced reliability and redundancy.
Cloud-native security management
To easily adhere to the latest security standards, SonicWall cloud-native security management has been updated to provide more visibility and control than ever before. With the updated SonicWall Network Security Manager (NSM) 2.2, administrators have a centralised location for configuring policies at the device or template level, making it easy to provision Layer 3-7 controls via a single rule for every firewall.
