The SonicWALL® Network Security Appliance (NSA) 4500 is a UTM Firewall for mid-size organizations and distributed environments that need high performance. The NSA 4500 integrates multi-core hardware with SonicWALL’s Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection™ engine for real-time protection without compromise.
The NSA 4500 appliance offers an extensive array of advanced security and networking features in an accessible and affordable platform that is easy to deploy and manage in a wide variety of environments.
Unified Threat Management.
The NSA 4500 provides application control, gateway anti-malware, intrusion prevention and Web content filtering on a high performance platform through its unified and simple management interface. This powerful combination ensures state-of-the-art security at a low total cost of ownership.
SonicWALL provides real-time insight and control of network traffic broken down by applications, users and content through intuitive on-board visualization. The ability to prioritize important applications, throttle down unproductive applications and block unwanted application components ensures an efficient and safe network.
The WAN Acceleration Appliance (WXA) Series provides WAN Acceleration to reduce application latency, conserve bandwidth and significantly optimize WAN performance. The WXA Series appliances are provisioned, managed and controlled by existing SonicWALL E-Class Network Security Appliance (NSA), NSA and TZ Series appliances for optimal ease of use and simplified deployment.
Gateway anti-virus and anti-spyware provide high performance protection against millions of unique pieces of malware with near zero latency and no file size limitation. This provides a first layer of defense and stops malware before it can reach systems on your network.
Tightly integrated, signature based network intrusion prevention protects against a comprehensive array of network and application layer threats by scanning packet payloads for attacks and exploits that attack critical internal systems.
SonicWALL Mobile Connect™
SonicWALL® Mobile Connect™, a single unified client app for iOS, provides Apple® iPad®, iPhone®, and iPod touch® users full network-level access to corporate and academic resources over encrypted SSL VPN connections.
Virtual Private Networking.
High-performance Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) easily scale to thousands of end points and branch offices. And SonicWALL Clean VPN™ technology protects the integrity of both your IPSec and SSL VPN traffic, securing your remote access tunnels and decontaminating the traffic running over it.
SonicWALL’s patented Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection engine combined with the E4500’s 8 core security platform is capable of inspecting hundreds of thousands of simultaneous connections across all ports. The NSA 4500 provides 600 Mbps of Deep Packet Inspection across 6 GbE copper interfaces with nearly zero latency and without file size limitation.
