Appliance Series
Next-generation firewalls
Today’s organizations face unprecedented
security challenges. The sophistication
and volume of attacks is increasing
exponentially, often resulting in lost
company, personal and customer data;
stolen intellectual property; damaged
reputations; and lost productivity. At the
same time, security has become more
complex. Organizations are grappling
with the BYOD revolution and the
explosion of personal devices connecting
to the network. Personal smartphones
and tablets slow network performance
and productivity, and mobile applications
such as social media and video streaming
consume an enormous amount of
bandwidth. In order to address these
network security and productivity
challenges, some organizations have
chosen to compromise their security by
turning off features to maintain network
performance.
Now your organization can be both
secure and productive without
compromising network performance.

Achieve deeper network security
Dell SonicWALL NSA Series firewalls are
capable of providing organizations of
any size with a deeper level of network
security because they are designed using
a scalable, multi-core hardware
architecture and a patented, single-pass,
low-latency, Reassembly-Free Deep
Packet Inspection® (RFDPI) engine that
can scan every byte of every packet
while maintaining high performance.
The Dell SonicWALL NSA Series goes
deeper than other firewalls with an
RFDPI engine that combines real-time
SSL decryption and inspection, an
intrusion prevention system (IPS) that
features sophisticated anti-evasion
technology and a network-based
malware protection system that
leverages the power of the cloud. Now
organizations can block daily new
threats as they appear.
It is estimated that organizations are
blind to approximately one third of their
network traffic due to SSL encryption.
SSL Decryption and Inspection
technology available on the Dell
SonicWALL NSA Series enables the
RFDPI engine to decrypt and inspect
all of network traffic on every port.
Every hour new variants of malware are
developed. The Dell SonicWALL NSA
Series keeps you abreast of these threats
with network-based malware protection
that leverages a cloud database which
is updated continually and currently
contains more than 13 million variants
of malware.
The Dell SonicWALL Intrusion Prevention
Service (IPS) protects against an array of
network-based application vulnerabilities
and exploits. New application vulnerabilities
are discovered every day making
ongoing IPS updates critical in keeping
IPS with so

protection up to date from emerging
threats. Dell SonicWALL goes a step
beyond traditional solutions with an
intrusion prevention system that features
sophisticated anti-evasion technology.
It scans all network traffic for worms,
Trojans, software vulnerabilities,
backdoor exploits, and other types of
malicious attacks. Cybercriminals often
try to circumvent the IPS by using
complex algorithms to evade detection.
Dell NGFWs feature advanced threat
protection to decode hidden attacks
before they can harm your organization.
By focusing on known malicious traffic,
Dell SonicWALL IPS filters out false
positives while increasing network
reliability and performance. Designed to
protect against both internal and
external threats, Dell SonicWALL IPS
monitors network traffic for malicious or
anomalous behavior, then blocks or logs
traffic based on predefined policy.
Reassembly-Free Deep Packet
Inspection engine
The Dell SonicWALL Reassembly-Free
Deep Packet Inspection (RFDPI) engine
provides superior threat protection
and application control without
compromising performance. It relies on
streaming traffic payload inspection to
detect threats at Layers 3-7, and takes
network streams through extensive and
repeated normalization and decryption
in order to neutralize advanced evasion
techniques that seek to confuse
detection engines and sneak malicious
code into the network.

In most cases, the connection is
terminated and proper logging and
notification events are created.
However, the engine can also be
configured for inspection only or, in
case of application detection, to provide
Layer 7 bandwidth management services
for the remainder of the application
stream as soon as the application is
identified.
Once a packet undergoes the necessary
pre-processing, including SSL
decryption, it is analyzed against a single,
proprietary memory representation of
three signature databases: intrusion
attacks, malware and applications. The
connection state is then advanced to
represent the position of the stream
relative to these databases until it
encounters a state of attack, or other
“match” event, at which point a pre-set
action is taken.

researching and developing countermeasures to deploy to the firewalls in
the field for up-to-date protection. The
team leverages more than one million
sensors across the globe for malware
samples, and for telemetry feedback on
the latest threat information, which in
turn is fed into the intrusion prevention,
anti-malware and application detection
capabilities.
Dell SonicWALL NGFW customers

Application intelligence
and control
Application intelligence informs
administrators of application traffic
traversing their network, so they can
schedule application controls based on
business priority, throttle unproductive
applications and block potentially
dangerous applications. Real-time
visualization identifies traffic anomalies
as they happen, enabling immediate
countermeasures against potential
inbound or outbound attacks or
performance bottlenecks.
Dell SonicWALL Application Traffic
Analytics provide granular insight into
application traffic, bandwidth utilization
and security threats, as well as powerful
troubleshooting and forensics capabilities.
Additionally, secure Single Sign-On
(SSO) capabilities ease the user
experience, increase productivity and

individual threats with a single signature.
In addition to the countermeasures on
the appliance, NSA appliances also have
access to the Dell SonicWALL CloudAV
Service, which extends the onboard
signature intelligence with more than
twelve million signatures. This CloudAV
database is accessed via a proprietary,
light-weight protocol by the firewall to
augment the inspection done on the
