As broadband Internet became common place in the small business, appliances that provided services on the edge of the network were required. Typically you needed to install unique devices for various functions, such as a router, firewall, VPN etc.
SonicWALL Firewall appliances provide all these functions and much more in one cost effective unit. With one appliance Lansend could provide multiple Internet related services to the client. Clients could now connect securely to their network from without, using the built in VPN functionality. Branch offices could be connected to the head office securely and transparently using secure VPN Tunnels.
Moreover the same platform and easy to use GUI interface was available on a range of appliances designed for small businesses to large enterprises. This meant that our engineers did not have to constantly relearn and their knowledge on one SonicWALL appliance allowed them to work on a large range of SonicWALL Firewalls.
There was no question SonicWALL Firewalls are the best edge appliances, especially for the small business. SonicWALL is the firewall of choice to recommend to our customers
SonicWALL originally a private company headquartered in San Jose, California, and now owned by Dell, sells a range of Internet appliances primarily directed at content control and network security. These include devices providing services for network firewalls, UTMs (Unified Threat Management), VPNs (Virtual Private Network), backup and recovery, and anti-spam for email.
