The Dell™ SonicWALL™ SuperMassive™ Series is Dell's Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) platform designed for large networks to deliver scalability, reliability and deep security at multi-gigabit speeds with near zero latency. Built to meet the needs of enterprise, government, university, and service provider deployments, the SuperMassive Series is ideal for securing enterprise networks, data centers and service providers. Combining its massively multi-core architecture and Dell SonicWALL's patented* Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection® (RFDPI) technology, the SuperMassive E10000 and 9000 Series deliver industry-leading application control, intrusion prevention, malware protection and SSL inspection at multigigabit speeds. The SuperMassive Series is designed with power, space, and cooling (PSC) in mind, providing the leading Gbps/Watt NGFW in the industry for application control and threat prevention.The Dell SonicWALL RFDPI engine scans every byte of every packet across all ports, 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 This technology is superior to outdated proxy designs that reassemble content using sockets bolted to anti-malware programs that are plagued with inefficiencies and overhead of socket memory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 allow 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 the Dell SonicWALL Threats Research Team. Additionally, SonicOS, an advanced purpose-built operating system, provides integrated tools that allow for custom application identification and control.The design of the SuperMassive Series firewalls provides near-linear performance increases and scales up to 96 cores of processing power to deliver up to 30 Gbps of threat prevention and 30 Gbps of application inspection and control. The SuperMassive E10000 Series is field upgradeable, future-proofing the security infrastructure investment as network bandwidth and security requirements increase.
