SonicWall TZ Series
(Wired & Wireless available)

Comprehensive Security: The SonicWall TZ Series advances UTM protection by combining intrusion prevention, gateway anti-virus, anti-spyware, content/url filtering, enforced client anti-virus, and anti-spam services (all optional services). Additionally, the SonicWall application intelligence and control feature in the TZ 215 ensures that bandwidth is available for business-critical applications while throttling or blocking unproductive applications. The TZ 215 also offers advanced application traffic analytics and reporting for deep insight into bandwidth utilization and security threats.

Higher Performance Protection: Many consumer-grade solutions lack the processing power and security sophistication to scan traffic for all threats without slowing down the network. Unlike these consumer solutions, the TZ Series utilizes patented SonicWall Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection® (DPI) technology 1 to examine traffic simultaneously across all ports without introducing latency to the network. As a result, organizations are not required to make a choice between advanced DPI security and network performance. With the TZ Series, they can have both.

Flexible Remote Access: The TZ Series includes additional advanced networking features such as IPSec and SSL VPN. The TZ Series is the only available UTM firewall that provides native VPN remote access client for Apple® iOS, Google® Android™, Windows, Mac OS and Linux. This unique client also supports Clean VPN™, which decontaminates threats from VPN traffic. Providing the most secure support for mobile platforms, only SonicWall delivers full malware scanning of SSL encrypted traffic and application control for Android and iOS devices.

Secure Wireless Connectivity: The TZ Series also provides Clean Wireless, combining UTM with high-speed 802.11n wireless to encrypt traffic while also ensuring the integrity of all traffic passing through. In addition, the TZ Series offers an option for 3G2 wireless WAN and analog modem connectivity for use as the primary or fail-over connection.

Breakthrough Simplicity: Easy to understand and easy to use, The TZ firewall solution is built upon the industry's most advanced object-based management operating system—SonicOS. Thanks to this intuitive interface, you don’t have to sacrifice ease of use for power. Now, distributed enterprises and SMBs can experience enterprise-class high-performance protection at a lower total cost of ownership.

SonicWALL TotalSecure
: Every TZ Series appliance is also available as a SonicWall TotalSecure solution, a convenient and affordable solution that combines the hardware and all the services needed for comprehensive network protection from a wide range of network threats—including viruses, spyware, worms, Trojans, keyloggers and more.

Current Models: TZ 105, 205, and 215
(Wired or Wireless available in all models)

The TZ series provides intelligent protection, business-class performance, advanced networking features and configuration flexibility in an affordable desktop appliance that’s easy to set up, operate and manage.

The TZ series appliances are available in a TotalSecure model which is simply the appliance bundled with 1 year of Comprehensive Gateway Security Suite (CGSS)*. The TZ 205 and 215 appliances are also available as upgrades through SonicWall's Secure Upgrade Plus 2 or 3-year CGSS* Program. Secure Upgrade Plus appliances are bundled with 2 or 3 years of CGSS*. This upgrade path can be used to upgrade from a earlier qualifying SonicWALL model or a qualifying competitive brand firewall.
