AUGUST 22, 2012 — Today, Dell™ SonicWALL™, the leading provider of intelligent network security and data protection solutions, announced that its SuperMassive™
In the past, enterprise organizations have needed best-of-breed firewalls as well as best-in-class intrusion prevention systems to stay ahead of exploits which have constantly advanced by developing extremely sophisticated evasion techniques to escape detection and remediation. The most serious of these exploits are those that can remotely compromise a network and enable attackers with the ability to initiate system-level commands. Advanced attacks frequently communicate out to command-and-
For effective threat protection as well as intrusion prevention, organizations need best-in-class firewall and intrusion prevention without the complexity of managing separate appliances, GUIs, and deployments. Dell SonicWALL Next-Generation Firewalls with advanced Intrusion Prevention capabilities can deliver strong resistance to evasion, powerful context and content protection capabilities as well as comprehensive threat protection and application control in a single integrated device.
NSS Labs – a leading independent security research and testing institute – issued their Network IPS Product Analysis stating, “Resistance to known evasion techniques was perfect, with the Dell SonicWALL SuperMassive SonicOS 6.0 achieving a 100 percent score across the board in all related tests. IP fragmentation, TCP stream segmentation, RPC fragmentation, URL obfuscation, HTML evasion and FTP evasion all failed to trick the product into ignoring valid attacks. Not only were the fragmented and obfuscated attacks blocked successfully, but all of them were also decoded accurately.”
The Dell SonicWALL SuperMassive E10000 Next-Gen Firewall Series utilizes a patented Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection® engine to detect and prevent the advanced evasion techniques used to conceal traditional intrusion attacks at all layers of the network stack like application vulnerabilities and blended threats and does so while maintaining high performance and low latency. The solution scans every byte of every packet of inbound and outbound traffic regardless of port and protocol and delivers full content inspection of both plain text and SSL encrypted traffic for comprehensive intrusion prevention, malware protection, and application intelligence and control. Dell SonicWALL’s IPS capabilities deliver advanced context awareness including geolocation visibility, user identification, and application identification as well as inspection and identification of documents and content including the ability to scan for administrator-

“When your network is under attack, it doesn’t matter where that threat originates – what matters is that you have the tools to stop it,” said Patrick Sweeney, executive director, product management, DELL SonicWALL. “These test results validate and verify that the SuperMassive E10800 provides our customers that mission-critical protection to prevent intrusions without compromising throughput.”
According to the NSS Labs’ Next-Generation IPS Product Analysis: “For high-end multi-gigabit environments looking to upgrade defenses from their current IPS, the advanced architecture of the SonicWALL SuperMassive running SonicOS 6.0 provides an extremely high level of protection and performance.”
“The increased sophistication of security solutions does not always correspond with improved efficiency,”
