Email Security appliances
and software
Powerful, easy-to-use email threat and compliance violation protection
Email is crucial for your business
communication, but it can also expose
your business to sabotage and
productivity drains if email-based threats
such as spam, phishing, spoofing, viruses
and zombies flood your mail servers and
user inboxes. What’s more, government
regulations now hold your business
accountable for protecting confidential
data and ensuring it is not leaked and
that email containing sensitive customer
data or confidential information is
securely exchanged. Whether your
organization is a growing small- to
medium-sized business (SMB), a large,
distributed enterprise or a managed
service provider (MSP), you need a
cost-effective way to deploy email
security and encryption for your IT
infrastructure, and the scalability to
easily grow capacity for—and delegate
management across—organizational
units and domains.
Dell™ SonicWALL™ Email Security
appliances and software provide
superior email protection from inbound
and outbound email threats and
compliance violations by scanning all
inbound and outbound email content
and attachments for sensitive data,
delivering real-time protection from
spam, phishing, viruses, spoofing,
zombies, directory harvest (DHA), Denial
of Service (DoS) and other attacks. The
solution leverages multiple, patented1
Dell SonicWALL threat detection
techniques and a unique, worldwide
1
attack identification and monitoring
network. In addition, it prevents
confidential data leaks and regulatory
violations with advanced compliance
scanning and management, including
integrated email encryption cloud
service to ensure secure exchange of
sensitive data.
Dell SonicWALL Email Security is a
flexible solution that deploys as a
scalable hardware appliance, virtual
appliance or software optimized for
Microsoft® Windows Server®, and it
scales easily to protect 10 to 100,000
mailboxes. Large enterprises can
configure the solution for high
availability and split mode to centrally
and reliably manage large-scale
deployments.
Administration of the Email Security
solution is intuitive, quick and simple.
You can safely delegate spam
management to end users, while still
retaining ultimate control over security
enforcement. You can also easily
manage user and group accounts with
seamless multi-LDAP synchronization.
For large, distributed environments,
multi-tenancy support lets you delegate
sub-administrators to manage settings at
multiple organizational units (such as
enterprise divisions or MSP customers)
within a single Email Security
deployment.

Features
Advanced analysis techniques—Stop
spam, phishing, spoofing, zombie and
virus attacks with over 99% effectiveness
using multiple proven, patented1
techniques including reputation checks
that check not only a message’s sender IP
reputation, but also the reputation of its
content, structure, links, images and
attachments. Email Security protects
against DHA and DoS attacks, and
ensures sender validation. Advanced
analysis techniques include adversarial
Bayesian filtering, image analysis and
gibberish detection to uncover hidden
known threats, and new threats.
Dell SonicWALL GRID Network—Receive
the most accurate and up-to-date
protection against new spam attacks
while ensuring delivery of benign email
with real-time threat information from
the Dell SonicWALL Global Response
Intelligent Defense (GRID) network,
which collects information from millions
of data sources. The Dell SonicWALL
threat team analyzes that information and
performs rigorous testing to establish
reputation scores for senders and
content, identifying new threats in
real-time.
Anti-virus and anti-spyware protection—
Get up-to-date anti-virus and antispyware protection with Dell SonicWALL
GRID Anti-Virus™. Also add McAfee®
anti-virus signatures for multi-layer
protection that is superior to that
1
provided by solutions that rely on a single
anti-virus technology. Moreover, you can
safeguard your network from the time a
new virus outbreak occurs until the time
an anti-virus signature update is available
by adding the predictive technology of
Dell SonicWALL Time Zero Virus
Protection.
Intelligent automation, task delegation
and robust reporting—Simplify
management with intelligent automation,
task delegation and robust reporting.
Automatically manage email addresses,
accounts and user groups. Seamlessly
integrate with multiple-LDAP servers.
Confidently delegate spam management
to end users with the downloadable Junk
Button for Outlook® plug-in, while still
retaining full control. Locate any email in
seconds with the Rapid Message Search
Engine. Centralized reporting (even in
Split Mode) gives you easily customizable,
system-wide and granular information on
attack types, solution effectiveness and
built-in performance monitoring.
Compliance Policy Management—This
add-on service enables compliance with
regulatory mandates by helping you to
identify, monitor and report on email that
violates compliance regulations and
guidelines (e.g., HIPAA, SOX, GLBA, and
PCI-DSS) or corporate data loss guidelines.
The subscription service also enables
policy-based routing of mail for approval,
archiving and encryption to ensure the
secure exchange of sensitive data.

Email Compliance and Encryption
subscription services—Powerful
framework for stopping email threats,
managing compliance requirements and
providing mobile-ready secure email
exchange for organizations of all sizes.
Flexible deployment options—Gain
scalable, long-term value by configuring
your solution for growth and redundancy
with minimal upfront costs. You can
deploy Email Security as a hardened,
high-performance appliance, as software
leveraging existing infrastructure or as a
virtual appliance leveraging shared
computing resources to optimize
utilization, ease migration and reduce
capital costs. Start with a single system
and then as your business grows, add
capacity and move to a fail-over enabled,
split-mode architecture. Multi-tenancy
support allows large enterprise or
managed service provider deployments
with multiple departments or customers
to establish organizational units with one
or multiple domains. The deployment
may be centrally managed, but still allows
a given organizational unit to have its
own users, policy rules, junk boxes
and more.

deployments
The highly flexible architecture of Dell
SonicWALL Email Security enables
deployments in organizations that
require a highly scalable, redundant and
distributed email protection solution that
can be centrally managed. Dell SonicWALL
Email Security can be deployed in either
all-in-one (Figure 1) or split mode
(Figure 2).
Flexible, scalable deployment
options
All-in-one configuration (Figure 1)
In an all-in-one configuration, filtering
and management take place on the
same system.
In split mode systems may be configured
as a remote analyzer or a control center.
In a typical split-mode setup, one or more
remote analyzers is connected to a
control center: The remote analyzer
receives email from one or more domains
and applies connection management,
email filtering (anti-spam, anti-phishing
and anti-virus) and advanced policy
techniques to deliver benign email to the
downstream email server. The control
center centrally manages all remote
analyzers and collects and stores junk
email from the remote analyzers.
Centralized management includes
reporting and monitoring of
all related systems. This paradigm allows
the solution to cost-effectively scale and
protect both inbound and outbound email
for growing organizations. Using Dell
SonicWALL Email Security Virtual
Appliances, split mode can be fully
deployed on one or multiple servers for
optimal efficiencies of scale.
