Why Use Sonicwall

In the past you could just block all ports except for http and https and you were good to go.  But the hackers and phishers have gotten wise and now are using these protocols too.  Columbia Communications believes the best defense is multiple layers of protection - test phishing emails, security eduction for employees, an effective AV and anti-malware on the workstation, and an enterprise grade firewall to block at the Internet.

Some of the features we like:

Geo-IP Blocking - where you can block access to and from Countries - like Russia, N Korea, etc.

Content Filtering - enforce acceptable use policies and block access to websites that are objectionable or unproductive.

Gateway Anti-virus and anti-spyware blocking

Application Control - control applications or application features

Application Bandwidth management - regulate available bandwidth for critical applications while inhibiting nonessential application traffic (like limiting facebook to only 1mb)

SSL decryption and inspection - decrypts and inspects SSL traffic on the fly for malware, intrustions, and data leakage. While this is a separate license, it is a must have with majority of websites now being SSL/https.

Intrusion Prevention - Zero-day protection, auto signature updates, botnet detection and blocking

Site to Site VPNs

VPN Client and SSL VPN
