Unified Threat Management.
The TZ 200 Series offers gateway anti-virus and anti-spyware, intrusion prevention and 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.

Gateway Anti-Malware and Intrusion Prevention.
Tightly integrated, signature based Gateway Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware and Intrusion Prevention protect against a comprehensive array of network and application layer threats by scanning packet payloads for attacks and exploits targeting critical internal systems. This provides a first layer of defense by stopping malware before it can reach network systems.

WAN Acceleration.
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.

Multi-WAN Failover.
The TZ 200 Series support WAN failover across multiple Ethernet interfaces to ensure uptime that is critical to many small businesses and retail deployments.

Powerful Secure Remote Access.
Integrated SSL VPN technology enables clientless, remote access to computers, email, files and applications from a variety of platforms as well as full network access through NetExtender™ or SonicWALL Mobile Connect™ for iOS devices (Apple® iPad, iPhone and iPod touch®). Users can also use IPSEC VPN to connect to the TZ 200 Series with a Global VPN Client.

Wireless LAN services.
The TZ 200 Wireless-N integrates ultra-fast 802.11n WLAN capabilities for secure, high-speed connectivity with the ability to create multiple virtual SSIDs (Virtual Access Points) for secure segmented wireless access. Additionally, the TZ 200 Wireless-N applies all Deep Packet Inspection security services to wireless traffic for extra WLAN protection.
