SonicWALL TZ SOHO Series
Features and Benefits:
Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection This high-performance, proprietary and patented inspection engine performs stream based bi-directional traffic analysis, without proxying or buffering, to uncover intrusion attempts, malware and identify application traffic regardless of port.
Bi-directional inspection Scans for threats in both inbound and outbound traffic simultaneously to ensure that the network is not used to distribute malware, and does not become a launch platform for attacks in case an infected machine is brought inside.
Single-pass inspection A single-pass DPI architecture simultaneously scans for malware, intrusions and application identification, drastically reducing DPI latency and ensuring that all threat information is correlated in a single architecture.
Stream-based inspection Proxy-less and non-buffering inspection technology provides ultra-low latency performance for deep packet inspection of simultaneous network streams without introducing file and stream size limitations, and can be applied on common protocols as well as raw TCP streams.
Deep Packet Inspection of Secure Socket Shell (DPI-SSH) Detects and prevents advanced encrypted attacks that leverage SSH, blocks encrypted malware downloads, ceases the spread of infections, and thwarts command and control communications and data exfiltration.
Capture Advanced Threat Protection
Multi-engine sandboxing The multi-engine sandbox platform, which includes virtualized sandboxing, full system emulation, and hypervisor level analysis technology, executes suspicious code and analyzes behavior, providing comprehensive visibility to malicious activity
Broad file type analysis Supports analysis of a broad range of file types, including executable programs (PE), DLL, PDFs, MS Office documents, archives, JAR, and APK plus multiple operating systems including Windows, Android, Mac OSX and multi-browser environments.
Rapid deployment of signatures When a file is identified as malicious, a signature is immediately deployed to firewalls with SonicWall Capture subscriptions and GRID Gateway Anti-Virus and IPS signature databases and the URL, IP and domain reputation databases within 48 hours.
Block until verdict To prevent potentially malicious files from entering the network, files sent to the cloud for analysis can be held at the gateway until a verdict is determined.
Encrypted Threat Protection
TLS/SSL decryption and inspection Decrypts and inspects SSL traffic on the fly, without proxying, for malware, intrusions and data leakage, and applies application, URL and content control policies in order to protect against threats hidden in TLS/SSL encrypted traffic. Included with security subscriptions for all models except SOHO. Sold as a separate license on SOHO.
SSH inspection Deep packet inspection of SSH (DPI-SSH) decrypts and inspects data traversing over SSH tunnels to prevent attacks that leverage SSH.
Countermeasure-based protection Tightly integrated intrusion prevention system (IPS) leverages signatures and other countermeasures to scan packet payloads for vulnerabilities and exploits, covering a broad spectrum of attacks and vulnerabilities.
Automatic signature updates The SonicWALL Threat Research Team continuously researches and deploys updates to an extensive list of IPS countermeasures that covers more than 50 attack categories. The new updates take immediate effect without any reboot or service interruption required.
Intra-zone IPS protection Bolsters internal security by segmenting the network into multiple security zones with intrusion prevention, preventing threats from propagating across the zone boundaries.
Botnet command and control (CnC) detection and blocking Identifies and blocks command and control traffic originating from bots on the local network to IPs and domains that are identified as propagating malware or are known CnC points.
Protocol abuse/anomaly Identifies and blocks attacks that abuse protocols in an attempt to sneak past the IPS.
Zero-day protection Protects the network against zero-day attacks with constant updates against the latest exploit methods and techniques that cover thousands of individual exploits.
Anti-evasion technology Extensive stream normalization, decoding and other techniques ensure that threats do not enter the network undetected by utilizing evasion techniques in Layers 2-7.

SSL decryption and inspection Decrypts and inspects SSL traffic on the fly, without proxying, for malware, intrusions and data leakage, and applies application, URL and content control policies in order to protect against threats hidden in SSL encrypted traffic Included with security subscriptions for all models except SOHO. Sold as a separate license on SOHO
Bi-directional raw TCP inspection The RFDPI engine is capable of scanning raw TCP streams on any port bi-directionally preventing attacks that they to sneak by outdated security systems that focus on securing a few well-known ports.
Extensive protocol support Identifies common protocols such as HTTP/S, FTP, SMTP, SMBv1/v2 and others, which do not send data in raw TCP, and decodes payloads for malware inspection, even if they do not run on standard, well-known ports.
Application Intelligence and Control
Application control Control applications, or individual application features, that are identified by the RFDPI engine against a continuously expanding database of over 3, 500 application signatures, to increase network security and enhance network productivity.
Custom application identification Control custom applications by creating signatures based on specific parameters or patterns unique to an application in its network communications, in order to gain further control over the network.
Application bandwidth management Granularly allocate and regulate available bandwidth for critical applications or application categories while inhibiting nonessential application traffic.
