Hands-on review: Dell SonicWall TZ600
The #SonicWall #TZ600 security appliance is designed for medium-sized businesses. It’s ideal for those wanting network security without paying the GDP of Ghana to get it. It offers powerful but flexible security that doesn’t need a degree in rocket science. In addition to the TZ600’s raw horsepower, it brings wireless management to the party. What’s in the box? The TZ600 looks like a generic network appliance given its slim-line rectangular box-like shape. It packs ten Gigabit ports for LAN, WAN, DMZ and WLAN connectivity. It can handle up to 70 users thanks to its 1GB of memory and quad-core 1.4GHz MIPS64 Octeon CPU. Depending on where you shop, the TZ600 costs around $4,000. That may give some CEOs pause for thought, but it includes the TZ600 and 12 months of Web Filtering, Intrusion Prevention, Gateway Anti-virus, Gateway Anti-malware, Application Control, Support and Maintenance. For an extra $560, TotalSecure Advanced Threat Prevention Service is also available. It also provides application intelligence and control, putting it into the must-buy category.
