10th April 2018, DUBAI, UAE – SonicWall, the trusted security partner protecting more than 1 million
networks worldwide, introduces the SonicWall Capture Cloud Platform, which tightly integrates security,
management, analytics and real-time threat intelligence across the company’s full portfolio of network,
email, mobile and cloud security products. SonicWall also is introducing new and enhanced products in its
portfolio of hardware, virtual appliances and endpoint clients.

The significance of the unified and connected SonicWall Capture Cloud Platform is highlighted by the
escalating threat landscape. In the first quarter of 2018 alone, the average SonicWall customer faced
7,739 malware attacks, a year-over-year increase of 151 percent; 335 of these attacks were hidden using
SSL/TLS encryption. The SonicWall Capture Cloud Platform also identified more than 49,800 new attack
variants in the first quarter, with SonicWall Real-Time Deep Memory Inspection TM (RTDMI) identifying
3,500 never-before-seen variants.

“Winning the cyber arms race requires a consistent, agile and reputable stream of real-time cyber threat
intelligence,” said SonicWall President and CEO Bill Conner. “The new SonicWall Capture Cloud Platform

 SonicWall Capture Labs Threat Network to automate breach prevention and
instantaneous sharing of threat intelligence across SonicWall firewalls, SonicWall
Capture Client, Email Security and mobility solutions

SonicWall Capture Labs researchers pioneered the use of artificial intelligence for threat research and
protection over a decade ago. Today, machine-learning algorithms are used to analyze data and classify
and block known malware before it can infect the network. Unknown files are sent to the SonicWall
Capture Cloud Platform where they are analyzed using a variety of techniques, including hypervisor
analysis, emulation, virtualization and RTDMI TM technology, blocking zero-day malware in near real time.

“This integrated, connected and real-time platform is the result of more than two decades of innovation,
research, engineering and expertise,” said SonicWall CTO John Gmuender. “Today’s cyber threats are so
agile and advanced that protecting customers on a by-the-minute basis is critical to delivering positive
security outcomes.”

Capture Security Center Offers Ultimate Visibility, Agility

One of the cornerstones of the SonicWall Capture Cloud Platform is the SonicWall Capture Security
Center, originally released as SonicWall Cloud GMS. Delivered as a cost-effective service offering, the
SonicWall Capture Security Center offers the ultimate in visibility, agility and capacity to govern entire
SonicWall security operations and services with greater clarity, precision and speed — all from a single
pane of glass.

By establishing a holistic and connected approach to security orchestration, the SonicWall Capture
Security Center federates all operational aspects of the SonicWall network security ecosystem. The open,
scalable center simplifies and, in many cases, automates various tasks to promote better security
coordination while reducing the complexity, time and expense of performing security operations and

Introducing the SonicWall Virtual Firewall Series

Extending SonicWall’s vision to the world of cloud and virtualization, SonicWall Network Security virtual
(NSv) firewalls protect all critical components of private and public cloud environments. SonicWall NSv
virtual firewalls deliver the security advantages of a physical firewall with the operational and economic
benefits of virtualization, including system scalability and agility, speed of system provisioning, simple
management and cost reduction. The new virtual firewalls help organizations:

 Gain more visibility into intra-host communication between virtual machines for
automated breach prevention
 Ensure appropriate placement of security policies for applications throughout the virtual
 Implement proper security zoning and isolation
 Prevent unauthorized takeover of virtual systems
 Stop unauthorized access to protected data
 Block malicious and intrusive actions, such as spreading malware, executing operating
system commands, file system browsing and command-and-control (C&C)

“Extending trusted SonicWall security capabilities to private and public cloud environments gives our
customers the agility, cost-effectiveness and flexibility they need to operate their business or organization
successfully,” said Joshua Skeens, Director of Engineering at Cerdant, a SonicWall SecureFirst Partner.
“We’re already witnessing customers execute with speed and determination — all with full confidence in
the security of their virtual and cloud environments. It’s truly a powerful differentiator.”

NSv virtual firewalls operate on the same feature-rich SonicOS operating system that powers the entire
SonicWall firewall line. SonicOS offers advanced security, networking and management capabilities, plus
tight integration with other SonicWall solutions.

SonicOS provides organizations with the network control and flexibility they require through application
intelligence and control, real-time visualization, an intrusion prevention system (IPS) featuring
sophisticated anti-evasion technology, high-speed virtual private networking (VPN) and other robust
security features.

SonicWall WAF Protects Applications in Private, Public or Hybrid Cloud Environments

The new SonicWall Web Application Firewall (WAF) delivers defense-in-depth capabilities to protect web
applications running in private, public or hybrid cloud environments. Organizations in regulated industries
gain a complete, out-of-box compliance solution for application-centric security that is easy to manage
and deploy.

SonicWall WAF features advanced web security tools and services to keep compliance data unexposed
and web properties safe, undisrupted and in peak performance. It employs a combination of signature-
based and application profiling deep-packet inspection, and high-performance, real-time intrusion
scanning engine using event-driven architecture to dynamically defend against evolving threats as
outlined by the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP), as well as more advanced web
application threats like denial-of-service (DoS) attacks and context-aware exploits.

The SonicWall WAF behavior-based detection engine learns, interrogates and baselines regular web
application usage behaviors and identifies anomalies that may be indicative of attempts to compromise
the application, steal data and/or cause a denial-of-service. The WAF acceleration features apply Layer-7
application delivery capabilities that enable application-aware load balancing, SSL offloading and
acceleration for resilience and an enhanced digital engagement and experience.

Like the SonicWall NSv series, SonicWall WAF can be deployed as a virtual appliance in private clouds
based on VMWare or Microsoft Hyper-V, or in Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure public
cloud environments.

Unified, Next-Generation Endpoint Protection

The new SonicWall Capture Client extends an organization’s ability to defend endpoint devices that
connect and interact with its networks, applications and data.
SonicWall Capture Client is a unified client platform that delivers multiple endpoint protection capabilities,
including next-generation malware protection and support for visibility into encrypted traffic. It leverages
layered protection technologies, comprehensive reporting and enforcement for endpoint protection. The
new solution:

 Extends advanced malware protection to endpoint devices

 Delivers critical ‘rollback’ capabilities
 Enables continuous behavior monitoring
 Uses machine learning for highly accurate determinations
 Simplifies management via a cloud-based console
 Integrates with SonicWall next-generation firewalls for easy rollout and client

SonicWall Capture Client also significantly simplifies DPI-SSL encrypted traffic analysis by solving one of
the most difficult challenges: how to deploy certificates on all end points. SonicWall Capture Client
simplifies this process by installing and helping manage trusted TLS certificates on all endpoints behind a
firewall. With approximately 68 percent of all traffic being encrypted, it’s absolutely crucial that
organizations activate DPI-SSL capabilities to ensure cyberattacks aren’t evading security controls to
infiltrate their networks.

SonicWall Updates NSa Firewall Lineup

SonicWall also announces updates to its Network Security appliance (NSa) range of next-generation
firewalls. The new NSa 3650, 4650 and 5650 models continue the evolution of SonicWall’s vision for a
deeper level of network security without a performance penalty.

More than simply a replacement for their predecessors, this trio of NSa firewalls address the growing
trends in web encryption, connected devices and high-speed mobility. The new NSa series models offer
more than double the number of SPI connections (up to 4 million) and quadruple the number of DPI-SSL
connections compared to their predecessors.

Built on a multi-core hardware architecture featuring 10-GbE and 2.5-GbE interfaces, the NSa series
scales to meet the performance demands of mid-sized networks, branch offices and distributed

The new SonicOS 6.5.1, an upgrade to 2017’s historic SonicOS 6.5.0 that offered more than 50 new
features, delivers bi-directional APIs and up to 18 times the number of DPI-SSL connections over
NSa firewall predecessors.

“Demonstrated by our agility, innovation and rapid execution, SonicWall is delivering more customer- and
partner-focused security solutions, capabilities and features than ever before,” said Conner. “It started last
year with a historic mobile security launch and continues today with the delivery of cybersecurity solutions
and threat intelligence capabilities made accessible via a powerful and connected cloud platform.”

SonicWall Capture Security Center, Network Security virtual (NSv) firewalls, Network Security appliance
(NSa) firewalls, SonicWall WAF and SonicWall Capture Client will be available to purchase in the first half
of calendar year 2018.
