SonicWall: Advanced Gateway Security Suite

Understanding and managing effective network security is challenging and complex. Fortunately, there is a simple solution to block advanced attacks, assess and mitigate risk, and ease firewall management.

SonicWall Advanced Gateway Security Suite (AGSS) integrates a wide range of network security services into a convenient, affordable package. AGSS is available as an add-on services for all physical and virtual SonicWall firewalls, including our NSsp, NSa, TZ and NSv Series.

Features and benefits

AGSS keeps your network safe from viruses, intrusions, botnets, spyware, trojans, worms and other malicious attacks. As soon as new threats are identified and often before software vendors can patch their software,

SonicWall firewalls and Capture Cloud database are automatically updated with signatures that protect against these threats. Inside every SonicWall firewall is a patented Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection® engine that scans traffic against multiple application types and protocols, ensuring your network has around-the-clock protection from internal and external attacks and application vulnerabilities. It integrates everything you need for protection from threats such as ransomware, viruses, spyware, worms, Trojans, adware, keyloggers, malicious mobile code (MMC) and other dangerous applications and web content.

Capture Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) Service revolutionizes advanced threat detection and sandboxing with a cloud-based, multi-engine solution for stopping unknown and zero-day attacks at the gateway. Capture ATP blocks zero-day attacks before they enter your network. It lets you establish advanced protection against the changing threat landscape and analyze a broad range of file types.

Capture ATP features SonicWall’s Real-Time Deep Memory Inspection (RTDMI) technology which detects and blocks malware that does not exhibit any malicious behavior or hides its weaponry via encryption. By forcing malware to reveal its weaponry into memory, the RTDMI engine proactively detects and blocks mass-market, never-before-seen threats and unknown malware, accurately utilizing real-time memory-based inspection techniques.

ICSA-certified gateway anti-virus and anti-spyware protection combines network-based anti-malware with a dynamically updated cloud database of tens of millions of malware signatures. This adds deep security protection against advanced modern threats continuously in real time. Dynamic spyware protection blocks the installation of malicious spyware and disrupts existing spyware communications.

Cutting-edge IPS technology protects against worms, trojans, software vulnerabilities and other intrusions by scanning all network traffic for malicious or anomalous patterns, thereby increasing network reliability and performance.

Application intelligence and control is a set of granular, application-specific policies providing application classification and policy enforcement to help administrators control and manage both business and non-business related applications.

Content Filtering Services (CFS) lets you enforce Internet use policies and control internal access to inappropriate, unproductive and potentially illegal web content with comprehensive content filtering. Website ratings cached locally on SonicWall firewalls make response time to frequently visited sites virtually instantaneous. Dynamically updated rating architecture cross-references all requested websites against a database in the cloud containing millions of URLs, IP addresses and domains and then compares each rating to the local policy setting.

24x7 Support with firmware updates and hardware replacement protects your business and your SonicWall investment. Software and firmware updates and upgrades maintain network security to keep your solution as good as new. Support includes around-theclock access to telephone and webbased support for basic configuration and troubleshooting assistance, as well as hardware replacement in the event of failure.
