Network security that goes above and beyond.
Uncompromising security and performance for emerging large organizations. The NSA 6600 network security appliance delivers best-in-class protection, speed and scalability with 12 Gbps throughput and up to 6000 VPN clients.
Discover enterprise-class features and uncompromising performance that only the SonicWall™ Network Security Appliance (NSA) 6600 Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) delivers to secure your emerging large organization.
Centralized security and control.
Achieve a deep level of security with a single firewall appliance. The SonicWall™ Network Security Appliance (NSA) 6600 Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) consolidates intrusion prevention; gateway anti-virus and anti-spyware; network-based malware protection; and application intelligence and control. You can also add bandwidth management; application blocking; and connectivity and security capabilities such as a multi-engine sandbox (Capture APT), SSL VPN, IPSec VPN, content filtering, anti-virus, and anti-spam.
Protection against emerging threats
Safeguard your organization around the clock with the sophisticated security capabilities of NSA 6600 firewall. The RFDPI™ engine inspects every byte of every packet and scans all network traffic—regardless of port or protocol. Real-time SSL decryption and inspection enables you to visualize and control application traffic as it crosses the network, and the NSA 6600 firewall has access to a continually updated cloud database that has more than 12.6 million variants of malware to protect your organization from emerging threats.
Give your organization the performance it needs to grow. The NSA 6600 firewall surpasses traditional single-core and ASIC processors, delivering a multi-core design that ensures deep-packet inspection while scaling easily for future growth.
Simplified security and lower costs.
Lower your total cost of ownership (TCO) with easy deployment, configuration and maintenance. The intuitive design and superior power efficiency of the NSA 6600 firewall makes it easy to achieve deep security.
