Dell SonicWALL SuperMassive E10800 Earns Coveted ‘Recommend’ Rating In NSS Labs 2013 Next Generation Firewall Security Value Map For Second Year In A Row

Stocks in this article: DELL

Dell, a leading provider of connected security offerings, announced today that its Dell SonicWALL™ SuperMassive™ E10800 Next-Generation Firewall running SonicOS 6.0 has earned the highest rating of ‘Recommend’ from NSS Labs, which provides independent validation for IT administrators who seek the best performing security required for their modern corporate network and deployment scenarios. To achieve this ranking, SuperMassive excelled in one of the industry’s most comprehensive, real-world tests of Next-Gen Firewalls and secured a leading position in NSS Labs’ Security Value Map for the second consecutive year.

The SuperMassive demonstrated one of the highest security effectiveness ratings and scored 100 percent in the stability and reliability, firewall, application control, and identity awareness tests. Resistance to known evasion, obfuscation and fragmentation techniques was also perfect, with the Dell SonicWALL Next-Gen Firewall achieving a 100 percent score across the board in all related tests. The SuperMassive E10800 was tested and rated by NSS Labs at 16.6 Gbps of Next-Gen Firewall throughput, and was able to scale into multi-gigabit throughput in the computationally expensive SSL decryption tests while maintaining extremely competitive TCO.

NSS Labs analysis states, “a Next-Gen Firewall must provide granular control based upon applications, not just ports. This capability is needed to re-establish a secure perimeter where unwanted applications are unable to tunnel over HTTP/S. As such, granular application control is a requirement of Next-Gen Firewalls since it enables the administrator to define security policies based upon applications rather than ports alone.” The SuperMassive E10800 earned scores of 100 percent for ‘Block Unwanted Applications’ and for ‘Block Specific Action.’ NSS Labs testing found that the Dell SonicWALL SuperMassive E10800 correctly enforced complex outbound and inbound policies consisting of multiple rules, objects and applications. SuperMassive is capable of enforcing application control on every port, including non-standard ports for a particular application.

According the NSS Labs Next-Generation Firewall Product Analysis, “Resistance to known evasion techniques was perfect, with the Dell SonicWALL SuperMassive E10800 SonicOS 6.0 achieving a 100 percent score across the board in all related tests. IP fragmentation, TCP stream segmentation, RPC fragmentation, URL obfuscation, HTML Evasion and FTP evasion all failed to trick the product into ignoring valid attacks.”
