Security Update: Is your firewall in the final phase of it's lifecycle?

01/10/2019

 

At NetThreat we’re always keen to encourage our customers to maximise the lifespan of their appliance (without compromising security, of course). 

When your firewall enters the final phase of it's lifecycle you can no longer purchase technical support, software or firmware updates and any existing support services will cease within 12 months.

Here, we highlight the main reasons you should seriously consider upgrading your appliance:

 

1.  Unknown Threats

Gen 6 firewalls have a three-engine sandbox to isolate suspicious inbound traffic and automatically stop zero-day threats, protecting your company from vulnerability to breaches.

 

2.  Ransomware

Gen 6 firewalls detect, inspect and block hidden ransomware at the gateway, before it gets to your network, and offer fast, automated remediation – this alone could save you thousands of £££s

 

3.  Encrypted threats

SonicWall’s DPI for SSL is included with all Gen 6 firewalls (except SOHO) – this protects against malicious files sent through encrypted connections and provides high security effectiveness

 

4.  Speed and performance

SonicWall’s DPI for SSL is included with all Gen 6 firewalls (except SOHO) – this protects against malicious files sent through encrypted connections and provides high security effectiveness

 

5.  Maintenance costs

Gen 6 firewall maintenance and support is up to 30% less expensive to maintain, compared to many legacy and Gen 5 firewalls – upgrading will save you £££s in the long-term

 

6.  Connectivity Issues

Gen 6 firewalls incorporate the latest wireless standard (802.11ac) for fast, secure wireless connections – ensuring more uptime and reducing overall costs

 

7.  Trading up

Take advantage of SonicWall's Secure Upgrade Promotion. Preferred pricing available when upgrading to the latest generation from any legacy Sonicwall or competitor device.
