South Africa based leading IT distributor, LOOPHOLD Security Distribution unveiled the SonicWALL NSA E8510. The network security appliance (NSA) E8510 provides 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) connectivity in a compact, 1U rack mountable form-factor to accommodate security, performance and power efficiency requirements of modern high-capacity networks.

With the ability to block or throttle application usage on a user or group level, and its compact form factor and affordable price, the E8510 is an ideal solution for corporate, healthcare and education deployments.

“Organisations are looking towards comprehensive security solutions yet more than often, these solutions slow down network traffic. SonicWALL’s latest NSA is geared for 10GbE environments, providing companies with unparalleled protection without compromising network speed,” said Martin Tassev, MD, LOOPHOLD Security Distribution.

The SonicWALL NSA E8510 addresses the performance concerns with dual 10GbE SFP+ ports and high performance full DPI which does not introduce latency to the network. Combined with the Sonic WALL Application Intelligence and Control features, this 10GbE next-generation firewall provides high-speed network performance and ensures security with integrated intrusion prevention (IPS), anti-malware and SSL traffic protection.

The new appliance capitalises on SonicWALL’s application intelligence and control solution, putting the power back in the hands of IT administrators with new levels of management and ease-of-use. Based on a continuously expanding database containing more than 3,500 application signatures, administrators can easily create bandwidth management or control policies across the network.
