SonicWall Reinvents Branch Connectivity with Secure SD-Branch and Switches

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, organizations are discovering a new business normal. More than ever before, businesses both big and small are embracing mobility, cloud applications and remote operations. To support this change, your network security must change, too.

To help businesses safeguard your newly boundless workforce, SonicWall is launching Secure SD-Branch and SonicWall Switches. Secure SD-Branch and SonicWall Switches are designed to ensure secure branch connectivity while also keeping up with future business transformations and security challenges.

SonicWall Secure SD-Branch

SonicWall Secure SD-Branch solution is an integrated platform that secures connectivity and transforms user experience at branch offices by combining Software-Defined Local Area Network (SD-LAN), Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) and security for distributed enterprises. Furthermore, this solution offers unified visibility and threat detection. This platform enables your branch offices — regardless of how many you have — to take advantage of cheaper connectivity with headquarters, enable adoption of BYOD (bring your own device) and SaaS applications, and scale easily as the number of mobile devices increases. Secure SD-Branch can be set up at your branches swiftly with Zero-Touch Deployment and can be controlled through a single pane of glass, simplifying deployment, management and troubleshooting.

A typical SonicWall SD-Branch solution consists of a mid- to high-end firewall, such as NSsp or NSa, deployed at a data center or corporate HQ. The mid- to entry-level firewall, such as NSa/TZ, is then deployed at the various branch locations. All SonicWall next-generation firewalls feature integrated SD-WAN capability at no additional cost. SonicWall Switches work seamlessly to these firewalls to extend wired connectivity to devices such as IoT devices and IP phones. The access points are connected to the switch as well, and provide WiFi connectivity to smartphones and other mobile devices. SonicWall Capture Client delivers endpoint security to these mobile devices, while SonicWall Cloud App Security helps safeguard cloud applications such as Office 365. Plus, the entire network can be managed from a single pane of glass with SonicWall Capture Security Center (CSC).

Introducing SonicWall Switches

An integral part of the SD-Branch solution, the SonicWall Switch delivers high-speed switching while providing unparalleled performance and manageability. Its unified security posture, high port density, Power over Ethernet (PoE) options and multi-gigabit performance capabilities make it ideal for SD-Branch and enterprise deployments. SonicWall Switch helps enable smoother digital transformation and allows you to keep pace with the changing network and security landscape.

The SonicWall Switch is completely firewall managed: Admins can easily manage the switch from a single pane of glass via CSC. This simplified management provides unified management, reporting and analytics across the entire SonicWall ecosystem.

The switches feature 10 gigabit ports and work seamlessly with SonicWall next-generation firewalls and SonicWave Access Points (AP) to create an end-to-end multi-gigabit network. The switches also include gigabit Ethernet ports to power on devices such as APs, VOIP phones and IP cameras.

The switches are available in 7 models with various PoE options, all at affordable price points. They’re packed with features and available in a compact form factor with an energy-efficient design.

The switch provides Zero-Touch Deployment capability, allowing you to quickly roll out devices across globally distributed enterprise branches. Purchasing an end-to-end security solution enables you to easily pass compliance checks and reduces your overall operational costs.

With SonicWall Secure SD-Branch and SonicWall Switches, you can safeguard your growing distributed workforce from advanced threats, all with a lower TCO. To learn more about our solutions, visit www.sonicwall.com
