Are You Sacrificing Security and Performance with an Outdated Firewall?

You shouldn’t have to sacrifice throughput and productivity for security. Yet, many organizations today have outdated firewalls that pose security risks because they fail to inspect the data payload of network packets. And simply adding malware inspection to alleviate the problem only increases latency that inhibits performance.

Dell® SonicWALL® Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFW) with multi-core architecture and Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection™ (RFDPI) overcome these limitations to deliver unrivaled levels of protection and performance required for today’s evolving IT environments.


You’ll learn how:

o    NGFWs simplify deployment, management to reduce operating costs and complexity
o    RFDPI and multi-core architecture maintain high levels of protection and performance
