The SonicWALL SuperMassive™ E10000 Series is SonicWALL’s Next-Generation Firewall platform designed for large networks to deliver scalability, reliability and deep security at multi-gigabit speeds. Built to meet the needs of enterprise, government, university, and service provider deployments, the SuperMassive E10000 Series is ideal for securing enterprise networks, data centers and server farms. Combining its massively multi-core architecture and SonicWALL’s patented* Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection® (RFDPI) technology, the SuperMassive E10000 Series delivers industry-leading application control, intrusion prevention, malware protection and SSL inspection at multi-gigabit speeds. The SonicWALL E10000 Series is designed with power, space, and cooling (PSC) in mind, providing the leading Gbps/Watt Next-Generation Firewall in the industry for application control and threat prevention.
SonicWALL’s Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection engine scans every byte of every packet delivering full content inspection of the entire stream while providing high performance and low latency. This technology is superior to outdated proxy designs that reassemble content using sockets bolted to anti-malware programs that are plagued with inefficiencies and overhead of socket memory thrashing that leads to high latency, low performance and file size limitations. The RFDPI engine delivers full content inspection to eliminate threats before they enter the network and provides protection against millions of unique malware variants without file size, performance or latency limitations. The RFDPI engine also provides full inspection of SSL-encrypted traffic as well as non-proxyable applications enabling complete protection regardless of transport or protocol.
Application traffic analytics allows for the identification of productive and unproductive application traffic in real time which can then be controlled through powerful application-level policies. Application control can be exercised on both a per-user and per-group basis, along with schedules and exception lists. All application, intrusion prevention, and malware signatures are constantly updated by SonicWALL’s Research Team. Additionally, SonicWALL’s advanced operating system, SonicOS, provides integrated tools that allow for custom application identification and control.
The design provides near-linear performance increases and scales up to 96 cores of processing power to deliver 40+ Gbps of Firewall throughput, 30+ Gbps of Application Inspection, 30+ Gbps of Intrusion Prevention, and 10+ Gbps of Anti-Malware protection. Consisting of the E10200, E10400 and E10800, the SuperMassive E10000 Series is field upgradeable, future-proofing the security infrastructure investment as network bandwidth and security requirements increase.
