SonicWALL, Inc. a leading secure network infrastructure company, today announced the expansion of its TZ Series product line with the launch of the TZ 200, TZ 200 Wireless-N, TZ 100, and TZ 100 Wireless-N. The updated TZ Series, which also includes the recently announced TZ 210, provides small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and distributed enterprises with innovations in enterprise-class anti-spam, 3G failover, SSL-VPN remote access, and a host of additional crucial features required to help companies control security threats and increase productivity.

The new SonicWALL TZ Series appliances set new standards of integration, far exceeding the current generation of Unified Threat Management Firewalls available in the market. Key innovations include the industry’s first Comprehensive Anti-Spam Service using SonicWALL’s enterprise-class anti-spam technology which incorporates Advanced Reputation Management on the firewall, Bayesian analysis in the cloud, and user level quarantining to provide a complete anti-spam solution. This valuable new service, combined with enterprise caliber productivity features such as automatic 3G and analog failover, application identification, bandwidth management, SSL VPN remote access, wireless switch controller, integrated 802.11n secure access point, gigabit interfaces, and other key features, set a new standard for security appliances in the SMB and distributed enterprise.

SonicWALL has also achieved a new first in the industry by combining all of the these features with its award-winning Gateway Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Intrusion Prevention, Enforced Client Anti-Virus and Content Filtering capability, while increasing the UTM throughput speeds by 2.5 to 3.5 times over previous generation SonicWALL products. The new TZs are built on SonicWALL’s 5th generation hardware architecture and its proprietary Re-assembly Free Deep Packet Inspection (RFDPI) technology which yields unprecedented levels of performance at a lower cost.

“The combination of increasing malware sophistication and the prevalence of social media usage puts your network’s security, productivity and cost structure under pressure,” says Patrick Sweeney, Vice President, Product Management at SonicWALL. “Yet, SMBs and distributed enterprises can’t solve the problem with a dozen different solutions. SonicWALL’s Unified Threat Management firewalls, combined with the innovative new features, bring a total solution together in one integrated series of firewalls that have the speed, sophistication, and intelligence to solve the security and the productivity threats to the network while still reducing costs.”

SonicWALL’s fifth generation series is now comprised of the TZ 100, TZ 200 and the TZ 210, all of which are available in wired and wireless configurations, the latter adding integrated 802.11 b/g/n wireless capabilities. The new TZ models build upon the capabilities of their TZ 150, TZ 180 and TZ 190 predecessors.
