Aug 21, 2013

Download Learn how to build a massively scalable next-generation firewall (NGFW) in this comprehensive white paper. The paper discusses seven measures of scalability, and how to use them to evaluate NGFWs. The paper also outlines the kind of technical innovations needed to produce a massively scalable NGFW. You'll also see results from a benchmark test comparing the four leading next-generation firewalls. In the most demanding test in the series - scanning SSL traffic with firewall, anti-virus, anti-spyware and IPS features turned on - the Dell SonicWALL appliance outperformed the second-fastest device by 18 percent and the other two devices by more than 100 percent.
