If It’s Easy, It’s TZ

In today’s ever-evolving security landscape, SMBs face major challenges in defending their networks, data and reputations—not to mention keeping up with changes in technology.


“Grow by leveraging the web” is today’s SMB rally call. But it is the echo to that call that you need to pay attention to – as you open the internet door wider, you are also opening the door to more cyber-attacks. Protection does not have to break the bank or keep you up at night. The SonicWall TZ Series of firewalls is designed specifically for the needs of SMBs and branch locations, delivering enterprise-class security without enterprise-grade complexity. With the new SonicWall TZ Series firewalls, you can get a better firewall that performs at faster broadband speeds for a low total cost of ownership.

What is TZ?

The TZ Series is the entry-level firewall series offered by SonicWall and it stands for Trusted Zones – it’s also the firewall of choice for most of the Managed Serviced Providers (MSPs). If it’s easy, it’s TZ – easy to use, easy to afford and easy to love. Users can simply plug it in and enjoy the advanced protection of the cost-effective SonicWall TZ Series firewalls without worrying about complex management — or the next threat.

The SonicWall TZ Series is Better

There is no reason why your firewall should not have the same protections that big businesses demand. The thinking behind all our network security products is to not cut corners when it comes to inspecting traffic. We inspect the whole file – no limits on the file size or on the ports and protocols being used. The new TZ Series offers 1/2.5/5/10 GbE network interfaces and gives you the type of protection that big businesses, large universities and government agencies enjoy. You can impress your big business partners with enterprise-grade protection featuring Advanced Malware Protection, Anti-Malware, Intrusion Prevention Services (IPS), Content Filtering Services (CFS) and URL Filtering, Application Control, and Secure Mobile Access (SMA).

The SonicWall TZ Series is Faster

Faster broadband is the starting point, but you also want faster wireless. To accomplish this, your firewall needs a lot of horsepower. The SonicWall TZ Series has plenty. Designed with the knowledge of the exploding growth in SSL use, the TZ Series has the horsepower to identify malware lurking in encrypted SSL traffic. With an integrated wireless controller, the business does not require additional costs to offer their customers and employees the extreme speeds that a wireless device can deliver.

The SonicWall TZ Series is Affordable

In the past, to meet high-speed broadband requirements, business owners would have to pay a hefty price. The SonicWall TZ 370 firewall can deliver full Deep Packet Protection at 1 Gbps speed for an affordable price (the TotalSecure bundle includes the appliance, CFS, Application Control, IPS, Advanced Malware Protection, SSL Inspection, and Gateway Antivirus).

The SonicWall TZ Series is the Solution for SMBs

Don’t let cybercriminals compromise your organization. The SonicWall TZ Series can meet your performance and security requirements at a price that doesn’t break the bank.
