SonicWALL debuts TZ 105, TZ 205 firewalls
UTM firewalls are designed to provide enterprise grade security to small businesses
Intelligent network security and data protection solutions provider SonicWALL has introduced the SonicWALL TZ 105 and TZ 205, secure, high performing Unified Threat Management (UTM) firewalls for small business, retail locations, branch offices and distributed enterprises.
The TZ 105 and TZ 205 are designed to provide strong, enterprise-grade security in a small form factor appliance and provide comprehensive protection against viruses, Trojans, key-loggers and other application layer attacks.
The TZ Series is designed to deliver highly effective anti-malware, intrusion prevention, content/URL filtering and application control capabilities and offer broad, secure mobile platform support for laptops, smartphones and tablets.
They feature support for native SSL VPN clients for Apple iOS and Google Android phones and tablets. The design of the SonicWALL Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection engine allows the TZ series to provide full network security without introducing latency.
For increased security, the new TZ Series is designed to provide the ability to configure separate zones to provide network segregation with distinct security policies for each network segment. As a result, a virus in one department remains isolated and will not affect other groups or, for example, critical systems such as Point of Sale terminals.
With the tools provided by the TZ Series appliances, IT managers can provide not only network access, but they can also drive network efficiency by actively optimising bandwidth and application usage at the user or group level.
Incorporating advanced networking features such as IPSec and SSL VPN, multiple ISP failover, load balancing, optional integrated 802.11n wireless and network segmentation, the TZ Series helps to delivers network connectivity, resilience and availability features to ensure uptime and accessibility.
The wireless, network segmentation, VPN and centralised management capabilities of the TZ Series are designed to enable network deployments that must meet PCI compliance standards. The streamlined GUI and advanced management features help to allow ease of deployment and configuration of the TZ Series firewalls through intuitive set-up wizards and a powerful web interface.
"The new TZ Series is an elegant integration of vital security and mobility features, combined into a single solution. It offers unsurpassed levels of security and value while reducing complexity," said Patrick Sweeney, vice president of product management and corporate marketing for SonicWALL. "Our customers in small businesses, retail deployments, government organizations, remote sites and branch offices benefit from the most effective and comprehensive enterprise-class protection to make security a business enabler, not a business barrier. The TZ Series truly is the most secure, sophisticated and widely-deployed security platform on the market today and we can prove it."
