SonicWall adds the three firewalls NSa 5700, NSsp 10700 and NSsp 11700 to its cybersecurity portfolio MSSPs (Managed Security Service Providers).
The design goal of the new NSsp 10700 and 11700 was primarily performance: SonicWall specifies the firewall throughput at 42 GBit / s (NSsp 10700) and 47 GBit / s (NSsp 11700), respectively, and the threat prevention throughput at 27 and respectively 35 GBit / s, the IPS throughput (Intrusion Prevention System) with 28 and 37 GBit / s respectively and the VPN performance with 23 GBit / s (NSsp 10700) and 27 GBit / s (NSsp 11700).
Both models are capable of 100, 25 G and 10 Gigabit Ethernet. The manufacturer has increased the port density for both, and both are equipped with redundant components. Its range of functions corresponds to that of the two larger sisters NSsp 13700 and 15700 – the latter achieves a firewall throughput of up to 105 Gbit / s. The manufacturer cites 28 Gbit / s firewall throughput, 15 Gbit / s threat prevention throughput, an IPS performance of 17 Gbit / s and a VPN performance (Virtual Private Network) of as key data for the midrange system NSa 5700 15 GBit / s.
In addition, the manufacturer bundles the management of its cloud, virtual appliance and hardware products in one cloud platform. For this purpose, SonicWall has developed a cloud-native version of its Network Security Manager (NSM) including management, analysis and reporting functions, via which all 17 virtual and physical firewall models of the TZ, NSa, NSsp and NSv series can now be accessed can be managed in the cloud. The cloud-native multi-engine sandbox services are also new Capture ATP (Advanced Threat Protection) that work with real-time deep memory inspection.
