“There is no such thing as a small-business virus,” said Matthew Medeiros, president and CEO of SonicWALL. “A two-person operation is just as exposed as a large organisation to gateway attacks from real-time traffic, yet until today protection was beyond many small firms’ price range or IT capabilities. The TZ 150 delivers the latest integrated anti-virus and VPN features and is highly affordable, very easy to use, and ideal for small businesses with limited access to IT support.”
Viruses, worms and Trojans are the most expensive security threats in dollar costs to businesses of all sizes, according to the 2004 CSI/FBI Computer Crime and Security Survey, Until today, there have been few solutions that comprehensively address the requirements of SMB customers, who prefer integrated security appliances because of ease of use and affordability. The TZ 150 supports SonicWALL’s powerful Gateway Anti-Virus and Intrusion Prevention Service, which is capable of scanning unlimited numbers of files of unlimited size for viruses. The service supports
multiple protocol types and provides constantly updated, comprehensive protection against threats including buffer overflows, worms, Trojans, backdoor exploits.
The TZ 150 is easily managed using SonicWALL’s award-winning Global Management System (GMS). The remote provisioning and management capabilities of GMS make SonicWALL’s entire product range, including the TZ 150, important offerings for Internet service providers, managed security service providers, and distributed networks such as retail chains.
“Threats to company networks are moving away from traditional email-based attacks to using worms that seek and exploit unpatched systems,” said Derrick Ross, technical director of Hampshire Business Systems, a SonicWALL Gold Medallion partner. “The TZ 150 is very well suited to retail networks, ISPs and managed security service providers who need a single point for filtering undesirable traffic with an additional layer of anti-virus protection to minimise risk.”
