SonicWALL has launched an integrated security and Lan switching appliance targeted directly at SMEs.
SonicWALL PRO 1260 combines deep packet security and flexible switching options into a unified solution ideal for small network applications. The appliance ships in an unrestricted node configuration and integrates support for SonicWALL’s portfolio of security services together with 24-port Lan switching in a single, scalable solution.
Specific functions include a deep inspection firewall, IPSec VPN, gateway anti-virus, intrusion prevention, and content filtering capabilities with a wire-speed, 24-port auto-sensing MDIX Layer 2 switch. It is available in two options, either Standard, offering an unmanaged option for straightforward networks, or Enhanced, offering comprehensive, managed switching including the ability to create custom deep inspection security zones between each of the switch ports.
“[SMEs] have a lot to gain from an integrated solution that saves time and money, and can be deployed and managed without difficulty,” said Matt Medeiros, president and chief executive at SonicWALL. “All networks require security and switching, but few [SMEs] have access to the dedicated IT personnel needed to manage these functions.”
