Bangalore: SonicWall TZ series is the first desktop firewall to protect against multi-gigabit malware and ransomware.

SonicWall TZ series firewall is a new zero touch-enabled, multi-gigabit firewall with SD-branch capabilities. It has a redesigned cloud-native management console that helps streamline operations through fresh and modern user interfaces.

“The new business norm is forcing organisations to rethink security for remote users and distributed networks,” said Atul Dhablania, SVP and COO – Sonic WallAtul Dhablania.

“SonicWall’s new SD-branch ready next-generation firewalls, along with re-engineered SonicOS, provide multi-gig malware inspection for increased security needs and advanced protection against threats hiding in the encrypted TLS 1.3 traffic,” added Dhablania.

The new SonicWall TZ570 and TZ670 next-generation firewalls are based on the company’s Boundless Cybersecurity platform. These desktop firewalls comes with multi-gigabit (5/10G) interfaces for connectivity with SonicWall switches or other networking devices in SD-branch deployments.
The new TZ firewall series runs on SonicOS 7.0 offering administrators a new security experience with modern user interfaces, intelligent device views, advanced security control, plus critical networking and management capabilities.

Using SD-branch-ready capabilities, connectivity and security to the branch or distributed locations can be deployed within minutes, delivering unified visibility and threat detection from a single pane of glass.
Streamline Operations with Cloud-Native Management
The new appliances can be managed via the new cloud-native Network Security Manager (NSM) 2.0, giving organisation a single, easy-to-use cloud interface for streamlined management, analytics and reporting with innovative new user interface and user experience.

“SonicWall is not just a product, it’s a community. It’s a range of security products that work and work well, with an extremely strong team behind them who are willing to help if you get stuck,” said Justin Archer, Leaf Cloud Service Engineer.

“With the re-imagined OS, the speed of the interface feels like working on a powerful computer. It’s smooth and sleek and allows for a more granular dissection of what the firewall is doing. Paired with the new NSM, where the interfaces are practically identical, it is a GUI match made in heaven,” added Archer.

Gain ‘Always-on Security’ with 3X Threat Protection
The new TZ series appliances complement the growing presence of affordable gigabit internet speeds and help organizations stop the most advanced cyberattacks without impacting network performance.

“The new TZ670 is the first desktop form factor firewall with multi-gig interfaces, is 5G ready and able to manage connected switches and access points,” said Jayant Thakre, VP – Products, SonicWall.

“With improved user experience and faster security inspections, the new TZ firewall series delivers SD-WAN, advanced security, and complete visibility for WAN edge deployments,” added Thakre.

The new TZ570 and TZ670 firewalls can reach threat prevention speeds up to 2.5 Gbps, even with all security services on. Connect and secure up to 1.5 million devices or users — a 900% increase in maximum connection per appliance.

For SSL/TLS connections, the TZ570 and TZ670 firewalls can secure up to 30,000 concurrent connections with DPI enabled.

Already enabled for zero-touch capabilities, new TZ firewalls are easier to deploy and manage with the new SonicWall SonicExpress mobile app.

This allows administrators to easily onboard TZ firewalls within minutes via an easy 1-2-3 process: simply register, connect and manage. The new SonicWall TZ series also supports high-speed threat protection across traffic encrypted with the TLS 1.3 standard.
