Striking the perfect balance between network security and performance is no easy task. Meeting these demands can be especially daunting for small businesses, which usually cannot afford the same degree of protections as their larger counterparts.

I returned to Las Vegas earlier this month to attend the Black Hat USA 2015 hacker conference where I learned about the latest and most shocking vulnerabilities discovered by security researchers from around the world.

Many deployed security solutions rely on a number of legacy products to provide layered security services. In addition, most customers are without security products that perform deep packet inspection (DPI) or SSL/TLS (DPI-SSL) inspection. This combination is leaving you vulnerable at a time when the complexity of cyber security attacks and the proliferation of malware is exploding.

If you are a small office, I have good news; the new SonicWall TZ Wireless Firewall Series now has integrated wireless. In an earlier life, the startup I was working for had a small compact office; it would be the perfect candidate for the integrated wireless product.

Therefore, most organizations look to independent hands-on test results from respected research laboratories such as NSS Labs. NSS Labs uses a very specific testing methodology that is run on each of the NGFWs being tested.
