Extensible architecture for extreme scalability and performance.

The SonicWALL SuperMassive™ E10000 Series is SonicWALL’s Next-Generation Firewall platform designed for large networks to deliver scalability, reliability and deep security at multi-gigabit speeds. Built to meet the needs of enterprise, government, university, and service provider deployments, the SuperMassive E10000 Series is ideal for securing enterprise networks, data centers and server farms. Combining its massively multi-core architecture and SonicWALL’s patented* Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection® (RFDPI) technology, the SuperMassive E10000 Series delivers industry-leading application control, intrusion prevention, malware protection and SSL inspection at multi-gigabit speeds. The SonicWALL E10000 Series is designed with power, space, and cooling (PSC) in mind, providing the leading Gbps/Watt Next-Generation Firewall in the industry for application control and threat prevention.

SonicWALL’s Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection engine scans every byte of every packet delivering full content inspection of the entire stream while providing high performance and low latency. This technology is superior to outdated proxy designs that reassemble content using sockets bolted to anti-malware programs that are plagued with inefficiencies and overhead of socket memory thrashing that leads to high latency, low performance and file size limitations. The RFDPI engine delivers full content inspection to eliminate threats before they enter the network and provides protection against millions of unique malware variants without file size, performance or latency limitations. The RFDPI engine also provides full inspection of SSL-encrypted traffic as well as non-proxyable applications enabling complete protection regardless of transport or protocol.

Application traffic analytics allows for the identification of productive and unproductive application traffic in real time which can then be controlled through powerful application-level policies. Application control can be exercised on both a per-user and per-group basis, along with schedules and exception lists. All application, intrusion prevention, and malware signatures are constantly updated by SonicWALL’s Research Team. Additionally, SonicWALL’s advanced operating system, SonicOS, provides integrated tools that allow for custom application identification and control.

The design provides near-linear performance increases and scales up to 96 cores of processing power to deliver 40+ Gbps of Firewall throughput, 30+ Gbps of Application Inspection, 30+ Gbps of Intrusion Prevention, and 10+ Gbps of Anti-Malware protection. Consisting of the E10200, E10400 and E10800, the SuperMassive E10000 Series is field upgradeable, future-proofing the security infrastructure investment as network bandwidth and security requirements increase.

Application Intelligence and Control
Feature: Description:
Application Control Identify and control applications or individual components of an application based on RFDPI technology instead of relying on well known ports and protocols.
Application Bandwidth Management Allocate bandwidth to critical applications while throttling unproductive application traffic for an efficient and productive network.
Custom Application Identification Create and configure custom application identification based on traffic parameters or on patterns unique to an application in its network communications.
AppFlow Visualization Advanced visualization along with comprehensive statistics provide administrators with a clear view into exactly what applications and application components are in use on the network and by whom in real time.
Application Signature Database A continuously expanding database of over 3,500 application signatures ensures that administrators are able to control the usage of all the latest applications on their network at a category or individual level.
IPFIX/NetFlow Reporting Export application usage data through IPFIX or through Netflow protocols for third-party monitoring and reporting of network data and application usage data.
Deep Packet Inspection for SSL SSL traffic is decrypted and inspected for malware and intrusions by the Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection engine in addition to applying application, URL, and content control policies on potentially evasive traffic.
User Activity Tracking User identification is seamlessly integrated with Microsoft® Active Directory and other authentication systems enabling tracking and reporting of individual user identification.
GeoIP Country Traffic Identification Identify and control network traffic going to or coming from specific countries.
Gateway Threat Prevention
Feature: Description:
Gateway Anti-Malware SonicWALL's proprietary RFDPI engine scans all ports and protocols for viruses without file size or stream length limitation. SonicLabs Researchers constantly provide updated threat protection, providing faster response times and threat prevention.
Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection (RFDPI) Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection keeps track of malware regardless of the order or the timing with which the packets arrive, allowing for extreme low latency while eliminating file size and stream size limitation, and providing greater performance and security than outdated proxy designs that reassemble content using sockets bolted to traditional anti-virus programs that are plagued with inefficiencies and overhead of socket memory thrashing that leads to high latency, low performance and file size limitations.
Cloud Anti-Virus (AV) In addition to utilizing the on-board database, the RFDPI engine also consults with the SonicWALL Cloud Services for additional information on over four million malware signatures and growing.
Bi-directional Inspection RFDPI can be performed on both inbound and outbound connections to provide protection in all network traffic directions.
24x7 Signature Updates SonicLabs Research Team team creates and updates signature databases that are propagated automatically to the firewalls in the field, with those signatures taking immediate effect without any reboot or service interruption required.
