The highest-performing, most secure UTM ﬁrewall for small oﬃces
F I R E W A L L
Today’s evolving threat landscape renders stateful packet inspection (SPI) ﬁrewalls irrelevant. SPI does not
secure your organization against malware passing from the web and mobile devices or enable application
control, which can hurt the productivity of your employees and your organization. In addition, as business-
critical applications move to the cloud, organizations need to ensure that bandwidth is available so that
employees can quickly and easily access vital data. Only deep packet inspection (DPI) can do all this, by
inspecting every byte of every packet. However, lesser solutions lack the power and sophistication to accomplish
DPI without turning the ﬁrewall into a bottleneck for high-speed broadband networks. Organizations should not
have to trade advanced DPI security and application control for network performance.
The new SonicWALL® TZ 215 is the highest-performing, most secure Uniﬁed Threat Management (UTM)
ﬁrewall available today in its price point. It provides full deep packet inspection (DPI) without diminishing
network performance, thus eliminating bottlenecks that other products introduce, while enabling businesses
to realize increased productivity gains.
Designed for small businesses, distributed enterprises, branch oﬃces and retail deployments, the new TZ 215
elegantly integrates the most eﬀective anti-malware, intrusion prevention, URL ﬁltering into a single solution,
driving down cost and complexity. The TZ 215 adds application intelligence and control to ensure bandwidth
for critical applications, while throttling non-productive ones. It speeds troubleshooting and forensics of
real-time and historic data, using drill-down visualization and Application Traﬃc Analytics to provide deep
insight into bandwidth utilization and security threats. Advanced networking features include multiple ISP
failover and load balancing, optional dual-band secure wireless, IPSec VPN support, network segmentation
and PCI compliance capabilities. The TZ 215 is the only UTM ﬁrewall with a native VPN remote access client for
iOS, Google® Android™, Windows, Mac OS and Linux that supports Clean VPN™, which decontaminates threats
from VPN traﬃc. SonicWALL Enforced Client Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware provides maximum prevention with
virtually no administrative overhead, and is available for purchase with either McAfee® or Kaspersky® anti-virus
software. The TZ 215 is the most trusted, reliable and easy-to-use security platform on the market.
