Dell SonicWALL Gateway Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware and Intrusion Prevention Service integrates gateway anti-virus, anti-spyware and intrusion prevention to deliver intelligent, real-time network security protection against sophisticated application layer and content-based attacks. Because threats emerge daily and are often unpredictable, Dell SonicWALL is able to deliver the highest protection possible with a deep packet inspection engine that delivers threat protection directly on the security gateway by matching downloaded, e-mailed and compressed files against an extensive and continuously updated database of signatures written by a combination of Dell SonicWALL's SonicAlert Team and third-party sources.
SonicWALL's solution is unique in its ability to handle unlimited file sizes and virtually hundreds of thousands of concurrent downloads, providing ultimate scalability and performance for growing networks. As an added layer of security, Dell SonicWALL Gateway Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware and Intrusion Prevention Service provides application layer attack protection not only against external threats, but also against those originating inside the network.
Real-time gateway anti-virus scanning
Real-time gateway anti-virus scanning delivers intelligent file-based protection through a high-performance engine that scans for viruses, worms, Trojans and other Internet threats in real-time.
Dynamic spyware protection
Dynamic spyware protection blocks the installation of malicious spyware at the gateway and disrupts background communications from existing spyware programs that transmit confidential data.
Powerful intrusion prevention
Powerful intrusion prevention protects against a comprehensive array of network-based application layer threats by scanning packet payloads for worms, Trojans, software vulnerabilities such as buffer overflows, peer-to-peer and instant messenger applications, backdoor exploits, and other malicious code.
Dynamically updated signature database
Dynamically updated signature database containing thousands of signatures delivered through Dell SonicWALL's distributed enforcement architecture detects and protects against viruses, spyware, worms, and Trojans, as well as peer-to-peer and instant messaging file transfers.
Day zero protection
Day Zero Protection is provided by Dell SonicWALL's SonicAlert Team and third-party sources, ensuring that vulnerabilities are blocked before they can be exploited.
Inter-zone scanning provides an additional layer of protection against malicious threats by allowing administrators to enforce intrusion prevention and anti-virus scanning not only between each network zone and the Internet, but also between internal network zones.
Application control provides the ability to prevent instant messaging and peer-to-peer file sharing programs from operating through the firewall, closing a potential backdoor that can be used to compromise the network while also improving employee productivity and conserving Internet bandwidth.
