The Dell SonicWALL Gateway Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Intrusion Prevention, and Application Intelligence delivers intelligent, real-time network security protection against sophisticated attacks. Available on every Dell SonicWALL firewall, patented Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection technology delivers protection from malware, intrusions and application exploits. Additionally, with the proliferation of Web 2.0 and social networking technologies for both work and personal use, Dell SonicWALL provides intelligence, control and visualization of network and application usage, with granular policies that can be created for both users and groups.
Inspection across any port and protocol
Inspection across any port and protocol for either inbound or outbound traffic provides ultimate coverage against today's threats even those using non-standard ports.
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 file-based Internet threats in real-time.
Dynamic spyware protection
Dynamic spyware protection blocks the installation of malicious spyware 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 threats by scanning packet payloads for software vulnerabilities such as buffer overflows, peer-to-peer and instant messaging exploits, backdoor attacks, and other malware.
Application intelligence and control
Application intelligence and control provides granular control and real-time visualization of applications to guarantee bandwidth prioritization and ensure maximum network security and productivity.
Dynamically updated signature database
Dynamically updated signature database contains over 2,800 application and thousands of malware signatures capable of detecting millions of pieces of malware.
Ultimate scalability and performance
Ultimate scalability and performance leverages the unique Dell SonicWALL Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection engine, which scans unlimited file sizes, and hundreds of thousands of concurrent downloads in real time.
Powerful signatures developed by the SonicAlert teams are intelligent and flexible enough to be able to detect new variants of the already known malware, in many cases providing effective zero-day protection.
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.
Comprehensive logging and application traffic analytics
Comprehensive logging and application traffic analytics of all intrusion attempts with the ability to filter logs based on priority level enables administrators to highlight high priority attacks, with granular reports based on attack source, destination and type of attack available through Dell SonicWALL Analyzer, Dell SonicWALL Scrutinizer or Dell SonicWALL Global Management System (GMS).
