Part No. 01-SSC-5330

A High Performance Firewall and Integrated Security Platform for Comprehensive Protection.

SonicWALL’s PRO 230 Internet security appliance is the perfect integrated business security solution to protect your network against malicious threats with firewall technology and to connect your remote sites and remote employees with hardware accelerated VPN capabilities.

A powerful stateful packet inspection firewall ensures the integrity and validity of every packet that enters your corporate network, keeping malicious threats out while allowing legitimate network traffic to pass through without degrading performance. The PRO 230’s flexible high speed interfaces create multiple protected zones, securing networks against external and internal threats. And you can deliver additional layers of protection with SonicWALL’s portfolio of integrated security applications including auto-enforced Complete Anti-Virus and Content Filtering.

With the SonicWALL PRO 230’s powerful and reliable IPSec VPN acceleration and bundled VPN clients, you can offer secure access to your corporate resources immediately. SonicWALL’s VPN Single Arm Mode feature seamlessly interoperates with, and removes the burden of, encryption and decryption from an existing firewall. Implementing a dedicated VPN solution maintains maximum performance, adds scalability, and improves security policy enforcement quickly and easily. Additional VPN features such as User Level Authentication (ULA), DHCP Relay, Bandwidth Management and Advanced Encryption Support (AES) give you complete control over your secure connections. Designed for business critical networks, the PRO 230 includes High Availability for guaranteed automatic fail-over when configured with a mirror appliance.

The PRO 230 can be easily managed through a Web interface or from a central location with SonicWALL’s award-winning GMS (Global Management System) management console for provisioning and enforcing security policies across the entire network. Real-time monitoring of essential information can be sent through SNMP MIBs to centralized tools such as HP OpenView, while system log events and network statistics are captured locally or sent to optional SonicWALL ViewPoint reporting software, giving you real-time intelligence from a central, Web-enabled console.

The SonicWALL PRO 230 is a cost-effective, integrated security solution that provides end-to-end security and remote access for networks of all sizes. Now you can have complete protection and high performance VPN connections that scale to meet your business needs.
