Brimming with confidence: Bill Conner, CEO, SonicWall

SonicWall, world’s  leading network security systems company, received a Recommended rating in the 2018 Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) Group Test by NSS Labs, Inc., a global leader and trusted source for independent, fact-based cybersecurity guidance.

SonicWall placed in the prestigious upper-right ‘Recommended’ quadrant on the NSS Labs Security Value Map (SVM). SonicWall was among 10 participants in the product testing that included examination in areas such as security effectiveness, performance and total cost of ownership (TCO).

“With more than 5.99 billion malware attacks in the first half of 2018 alone, enterprises can quickly find themselves at risk,” said SonicWall CEO Bill Conner. “Next-generation firewalls are more critical than ever as businesses have come to depend on their reliability and protection. Core toSonicWall’s automated, real-time breach detection and preventionplatform, our firewalls provide the latest defense in the cyber arms race. With SonicWall, our partners and customers have access to proven security at a cost-effective price point, as confirmed by the latest NSS Labs group tests.”

Vikram Phatak,CEO, NSS Labs, said, “NSS Labs is committed to independent testing that helps enterprises make informed cybersecurity decisions”. “With ‘Recommended’ ratings for five years, SonicWall next-generation firewalls are an excellent choice for any company seeking devices with strong security and consistent product quality to evolve their security architectures. We applaud SonicWall’s focus on product consistency and security effectiveness”, added Phatak.

“The attack surfaces cybercriminals leverage to exploit organizations grow by the day,” said Atul Dhablania, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, SonicWall. “Businesses should ensure they’re partnered with a trusted cybersecurity leader that not only extends security across endpoints and traditional networks, but does so with cost-effective, enterprise-grade solutions that are routinely validated by respected third parties”, added Dhablania.

This third-party validation confirms what customers have been saying about SonicWall’s approach to end-to-end cybersecurity, which protects everything between and includingtraditional networks, wireless and mobile environments, and endpoints. SonicWall Capture Client endpoint protection is powered by SentinelOne, which also earned a‘Recommended’ rating in the 2018 NSS Labs Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) Group Test.

During the NSS Labs test, SonicWall NSa 2650endured thorough testing exercises via the NSS Exploit Library, which exposed the applianceto more than 1,900 exploits. To ensure real-world testing conditions, NSS Labs engineers utilize multiple commercial, open-source and propriety tools to launch a broad range of attacks.
