SonicWALL adds to its Security Virtualisation Suite with an Email Security Virtual Appliance
Sydney – 28 April 2010 – SonicWALL, Inc, a leading secure network infrastructure company, announced today at Interop in Las Vegas the availability of its SonicWALL Email Security Virtual Appliance, providing one more deployment option for its powerful, easy-to-manage and highly scalable email security and anti-spam solutions.
SonicWALL customers now have multiple options when it comes to deploying email security, including SonicWALL Email Security (SES) Appliances, server software deployed on a third-party Windows based server, and SonicWALL Email Security Virtual Appliances.
The release of the SonicWALL Email Security Virtual Appliance is in line with the company’s recently announced plan to develop and sell a comprehensive line of security virtual appliances as part of its vision to deliver Dynamic Security for the Global Network. This announcement follows the introduction of SonicWALL ViewPoint Virtual Appliance and the SonicWALL Global Management System Virtual Appliances earlier this year.
As email-based security threats continue to evolve in complexity, sophistication and volume, businesses of all sizes are vulnerable to spam and virus attacks capable of crippling the corporate network and greatly reducing productivity and network performance.
Using the technology in the most recent firmware release, the SonicWALL Email Security Virtual Appliance arms mid-to-large enterprises and Managed Service Providers (MSPs) with powerful email security and anti-spam capabilities in a virtualised environment. Businesses can more easily scale up or down their email security solution to meet their changing business needs. VARs and MSPs can utilise the multi-tenant capabilities to provide flexible services to multiple customers. Virtualisation as a deployment option provides greater flexibility, scalability, and resiliency while providing an overall lower total cost of ownership (TCO).
“SonicWALL’s Email Security solutions protect some of the world’s largest companies from the waste of SPAM and the malware that SPAM distributes,” said Patrick Sweeney, Vice President of Product Management, SonicWALL.
“But businesses, MSPs and VARs need more than just the most effective solution. They need the most cost effective and flexible deployment options, as many weigh how best to utilise resources internally, or whether to move to cloud-based infrastructures. Now, companies have all the options they need to stay competitive, and stay protected.”

The SonicWALL Email Security Virtual Appliance is the latest addition to the company’s expanding Security Virtual Appliance portfolio, which includes the SonicWALL Global Management System Virtual Appliance and ViewPoint Virtual Appliance announced last month.
