Comprehensive next-generation firewall protection against an array of attacks.SonicWALL® NSA 250M and 250M Wireless-N high-performance, modular Next-Generation Firewalls offer branch offices and distributed enterprises in-depth frontline security, application and user control, network productivity and optional 802.11 dual-band wireless. The NSA 250M acts as the first line of network defense against viruses, Trojans, key-loggers and other application layer attacks, without compromising network performance. The NSA 250M Series can be extended with a variety of modules to provide deployment flexibility and reduce acquisition and maintenance costs.
NSA 250M Series features.The NSA 250M Series offers an extensive array of advanced networking and configuration flexibility features in an accessible, affordable platform that is easy to deploy and manage in a wide variety of environments.
Distributed network security.The NSA 250M Series provides anti-malware, intrusion prevention and web content filtering at branch offices without compromising performance at those locations.
Application control and visualization.IT administrators can granularly view and control bandwidth-consuming and potentially dangerous application traffic over the network, even between widely distributed locations.
WAN acceleration.Network productivity can increase because IT administrators can identify and throttle or block unauthorized, unproductive and non-work-related appliances and websites such as Facebook® or YouTube® and optimize WAN traffic when integrated with SonicWALL WAN Acceleration Appliance (WXA) solutions.
Gateway Anti-Malware and Intrusion Prevention.Gateway anti-virus, anti-spyware and intrusion prevention provide high-performance protection against millions of unique pieces of malware with near zero latency and no file size limitations. This provides a first layer of defense and stops malware before it can reach systems on your network.
Virtual Private Networking.High-performance Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) easily scale to thousands of endpoints and branch offices. And SonicWALL Clean VPN™ technology protects the integrity of both your IPSec and SSL VPN traffic, securing your remote access tunnels and decontaminating the traffic running across it.
Integrated modules support.The NSA 250M Series can be extended with a variety of modules, such as T1/E1, DSL and SFP Modules, to provide deployment flexibility and additional failover capabilities. By consolidating equipment, the modular solution reduces acquisition and maintenance costs.
SonicWALL Mobile Connect™SonicWALL® Mobile Connect™, a single unified client app for iOS, provides Apple® iPad®, iPhone®, and iPod touch® users full network-level access to corporate and academic resources over encrypted SSL VPN connections.
High performance.SonicWALL’s patented Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection® engine1 combined with the NSA 250M dual-core security platform is capable of inspecting hundreds of thousands of connections simultaneously across all ports. With nearly zero latency and without file size limitations, the system provides 130 Mbps of Deep Packet Inspection across 5 GbE copper interfaces.
Platform features.SonicOS provides key features designed to ensure the security of your network with an intuitive graphical user interface for increased functionality and ease of use.
Deep Packet Inspection firewall.SonicWALL Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection™ technology scans against multiple application types and protocols to protect against internal and external threats at both the application layer and the network layer.2
Deep Packet Inspection for SSL Encrypted Traffic (DPI-SSL).DPI-SSL transparently decrypts, inspects and re-encrypts SSL encrypted traffic to allow security services to be applied to all traffic that traverses SonicWALL Next-Generation Firewalls.
SSL VPN remote access.Integrated SSL VPN technology enables clientless, remote access to email, files, intranets, and applications from a variety of platforms. An SSL VPN client can also be automatically pushed out to the client and auto-configured to provide secure layer 3 connectivity.
Clean Wireless.SonicWALL firewalls can be extended with secure wireless access points, SonicPoints, to provide seamless and secure 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless networks protected with the SonicWALL Clean Wireless technology.
Powerful reporting.Historical reporting on user activity is available through SonicWALL Analyzer™ software and real-time application analysis through powerful visualization tools.
Secure Network Optimization.Stay ahead of today’s constantly evolving landscape of threats and application-related issues with an advanced security platform that consolidates SonicWALL Next-Generation Firewall features for enterprises along with WAN acceleration for distributed offices to maximize security and control with minimum network latency.
Business continuity.Your network will continue to operate without interruption even if there is a hardware or software failure with Active/Passive failover. Stateful synchronization across the appliances enables failover without interruption to existing network traffic and VPN tunnels.
Centralized policy management.The SonicWALL Global Management System (GMS®) provides flexible, powerful and intuitive tools to manage configurations, view real-time monitoring metrics and integrate policy and compliance reporting, all from a central location.
Security services.Every SonicWALL NSA appliance can be configured into a customized network security solution, with a choice of individual security services and bundled solutions.
Content Filtering.SonicWALL Content Filtering Service blocks multiple categories of objectionable Web content and provides the ideal combination of control and flexibility to ensure the highest levels of productivity and protection.
Gateway Security Services.SonicWALL Gateway Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Intrusion Prevention, and Application Intelligence and Control Service delivers intelligent, real-time network security protection against sophisticated application layer and content-based attacks, including viruses, spyware, worms, and more. Configurable tools prevent data leakage and enable visualization of network traffic.

- 2 The purchase of SonicWALL Gateway Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware and Intrusion Prevention Service is required to benefit from SonicWALL Deep Packet Inspection Technology
Organizations of all sizes depend on their networks to access internal and external mission-critical applications. As advances in networking continue to provide tremendous benefits, organizations are increasingly challenged by sophisticated and financially-motivated attacks designed to disrupt communication, degrade performance and compromise data. Malicious attacks penetrate outdated stateful packet inspection firewalls with advanced application layer exploits. Point products add layers of security, but are costly, difficult to manage, limited in controlling network misuse and ineffective against the latest multipronged attacks.
