SonicWALL WAN Acceleration Appliance (WXA) Series

Wednesday, 22 June, 2011



The SonicWALL WAN Acceleration Appliance (WXA) Series, an extension of the current SonicWALL Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) suite, consists of the WXA 5000 virtual appliance, the WXA 2000 and WXA 4000 hardware appliances and the WXA 500 Live CD. The series improves WAN performance between regional and branch offices and reduces traffic by up to a claimed 95%. It gives users faster access to mission-critical applications.

To simplify the deployment of WAN acceleration, the series attaches directly to SonicWALL Network Security Appliance (NSA) and TZ Series appliances for seamless integration, without requiring any reconfiguration of the network. SonicOS firmware automatically detects, provisions and manages the WXA solution. Because the firewall is able to combine both application intelligence and WAN optimisation in a single solution, networks experience unprecedented speed and bandwidth efficiencies.

Unwanted applications are eliminated from the network, while mission-critical applications are allocated increased bandwidth. WAN optimisation then reduces the total traffic over WAN links, improving network capacity and speed. All traffic is scanned for intrusions and malware with the Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection engine. Additionally, since the solution is integrated with IPsec and SSL VPN features, it eliminates the problems associated with WAN Acceleration of encrypted traffic by auto creating the routing and policy logic for remote and branch offices.
