ROUND ROCK, Texas -- March 13, 2013

Dell, a leading provider of connected security offerings, announced today that
its Dell SonicWALL™ SuperMassive™ E10800 Next-Generation Firewall running
SonicOS 6.0 has earned the highest rating of ‘Recommend’ from NSS Labs, which
provides independent validation for IT administrators who seek the best
performing security required for their modern corporate network and deployment
scenarios. To achieve this ranking, SuperMassive excelled in one of the
industry’s most comprehensive, real-world tests of Next-Gen Firewalls and
secured a leading position in NSS Labs’ Security Value Map for the second
consecutive year.

The SuperMassive demonstrated one of the highest security effectiveness
ratings and scored 100 percent in the stability and reliability, firewall,
application control, and identity awareness tests. Resistance to known
evasion, obfuscation and fragmentation techniques was also perfect, with the
Dell SonicWALL Next-Gen Firewall achieving a 100 percent score across the
board in all related tests. The SuperMassive E10800 was tested and rated by
NSS Labs at 16.6 Gbps of Next-Gen Firewall throughput, and was able to scale
into multi-gigabit throughput in the computationally expensive SSL decryption
tests while maintaining extremely competitive TCO.

NSS Labs analysis states, “a Next-Gen Firewall must provide granular control
based upon applications, not just ports. This capability is needed to
re-establish a secure perimeter where unwanted applications are unable to
tunnel over HTTP/S. As such, granular application control is a requirement of
Next-Gen Firewalls since it enables the administrator to define security
policies based upon applications rather than ports alone.” The SuperMassive
E10800 earned scores of 100 percent for ‘Block Unwanted Applications’ and for
‘Block Specific Action.’ NSS Labs testing found that the Dell SonicWALL
SuperMassive E10800 correctly enforced complex outbound and inbound policies
consisting of multiple rules, objects and applications. SuperMassive is
capable of enforcing application control on every port, including non-standard
ports for a particular application.

According the NSS Labs Next-Generation Firewall Product Analysis, “Resistance
to known evasion techniques was perfect, with the Dell SonicWALL SuperMassive
E10800 SonicOS 6.0 achieving a 100 percent score across the board in all
related tests. IP fragmentation, TCP stream segmentation, RPC fragmentation,
URL obfuscation, HTML Evasion and FTP evasion all failed to trick the product
into ignoring valid attacks.”

"Customers can benefit greatly by having access to the rigorous, highly
technical, independent testing done by NSS Labs,” said Patrick Sweeney,
executive director network security, Dell Software Group. “I’m proud that such
testing has validated the extreme high quality and performance characteristics
of the SuperMassive E10800 for enterprise and data center environments.”
