Significantly enhanced WAN application performance and user experience

In today’s distributed enterprise, effcient utilization of bandwidth, increased security, and ease of deployment and management are important factors when considering a WAN acceleration solution.

Throughput can be exhausted by collaboration applications such as Microsoft® SharePoint and Windows® File Sharing. At the same time, due to the popularity of Web 2.0 and social media, an exponential increase in Internet traffc is already overburdening WAN bandwidth. This ineffcient utilization of available bandwidth results in higher latency, lowering employee productivity. Spending more on increased bandwidth or enhanced services, or purchasing disparate point solutions, does not resolve the problem.

The SonicWALL WAN Acceleration Appliance (WXA) Series enables you to easily and securely enhance WAN application performance at remote and branch offces, thus improving the end user experience that leads to increased productivity. Unlike standalone WAN acceleration products that are deployed either behind the firewall or between the firewall and WAN router, the Sonicwall WXA Series is an integrated add-on to the Sonicwall Next- Generation Firewall. The solution enables comprehensive scanning for intrusions and malware before accelerating the traffc across the VPN or dedicated WAN link, thus maximizing security and performance.
