SonicWall Wins Best UTM Security Solution at SC Awards 2020


What is the best firewall solution? According to SC Media, that honor now belongs to SonicWall and the NSa 2650 firewall.

The NSa firewall was honored as the Best UTM Security Solution during the 2020 SC Awards gala at the InterContinental Hotel in San Francisco on Feb. 25, highlighting SonicWall’s tremendous showing at RSA Conference 2020.

SC Awards honors the achievements of the cybersecurity brands and professionals striving to safeguard businesses, their customers, and critical data in North America. Product and solution entries are reviewed and scored by two panels of jurors comprised of cybersecurity industry luminaries, including current and former CISOs to vendor-neutral consultants to educators from academic institutions.

“After averages for each category are tallied, finalists and winners are decided. Results are completely independent. Financial/advertising considerations play no part in the results. That is, no one can ‘buy’ a win by advertising, partnering or working with SC and its various team members,” states SC Media.

More than just a sentry standing between an organization’s most valuable assets and the threats that lie beyond, the SonicWall NSa 2650 firewall provides high-speed threat prevention over thousands of encrypted and unencrypted connections, delivering high security effectiveness to mid-sized networks, branch offices and distributed enterprises — all without diminishing network performance.

“The SonicWall NSa firewalls deployed at our locations have instilled confidence that these front lines of defense devices are protecting our digital assets with industry-leading security, scalability and manageability,” said SonicWall customer Scott Pratt, Chief Information Officer of a North American financial services company.

Marrying two advanced security technologies — the multi-engine Capture Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) sandbox service enhanced by Real-Time Deep Memory Inspection (RTDMI) technology and the company’s Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection — the NSa 2650 firewall proactively blocks mass-market, zero-day threats and unknown malware and examines every byte of every packet.
