Dell SonicWALL Email Security Series Appliances

Spam, phishing and virus-laden messages continue to plague organizations worldwide. From lost productivity to stolen identities to compromised proprietary information, the cost can be staggering. Dell™ SonicWALL™ Email Security Appliances, Software, Virtual Appliances and Services deliver a wide range of anti-spam and email security solutions that address the email protection needs of everyone, from one individual to a 100,000-person company. The result is email that’s safe, productive and cost-effective.

Stops email spam.

Stopping spam, phishing and virus-laden email from reaching your Inbox is what matters most. Our best-in-class spam filter stops spam attacks at over 98%—but to be truly effective, our Email Security solutions go above and beyond to deliver fast performance, immediate updates, thorough analysis and the flexibility to adjust to the unique needs of your organization.

Easy to manage.

We’ve optimized and simplified management of our solutions so they can fit your organization. For example, Dell SonicWALL Email Security automatically receives and applies spam updates, generates and emails defined reports, and synchronizes with LDAP. Unique end user anti-spam tools ease management and improve end user experience, while retaining IT control.

Keeps email spam off your network.

Stopping spam at the gateway reduces junk traffic and improves performance. Unlike other solutions, Dell SonicWALL Email Security extends beyond mere Sender IP reputation with the Dell SonicWALL unique Global Response Intelligent Defense (GRID) Network of over 4 million endpoints, hundreds of millions of reputation scores and billions of reputation votes. This lets Dell SonicWALL Email Security quickly identify, log and block spam, phishing and virus-laden email before it enters your network.

Data leakage protection and secure email exchange.

Dell SonicWALL Email Security identifies and routes email containing sensitive information, offering both inbound compliance and outbound data leakage protection. For example, Dell SonicWALL Email Security can block receipt of EXE or MP3 files; re-route outbound email and attachments containing Personal Health Information (PHI) terms to an approval box; and encrypt email for secure email exchange with customers and partners. Our easy-to-manage policies and compliance tools offer a cost-effective way to comply with regulations such as HIPAA, GLBA, PCI and SOX.

Protects your server’s reputation.

Should a zombie system that spews out spam, phishing or virus-laden email appear on your network, you could see your email server blacklisted, your ISP connection shut down and your IT resources scrambling to repair the problem—and your reputation. Dell SonicWALL Email Security protects your network from inbound viruses, Trojans and worms, as well as outbound zombies. Dell SonicWALL Email Security can even monitor all outbound traffic to ensure your connection is not used to spam the world—inadvertently or on purpose.
