The SonicWall Network Security virtual NSv 870 firewall, delivers enterprise-class security, streamlined management, complete visibility, flexible deployment, while delivering superior performance for virtual workloads.

Vulnerabilities within virtual environments are discovered regularly that yield serious security implications and challenges. But protecting all these security vectors requires the ability to also consistently apply the right security policy to the right network control point, as some security failures can be attributed to ineffective policies or misconfigurations.

The NSv 870 firewall helps security teams reduce these types of security risks and vulnerabilities, which can cause serious disruption to business-critical services and operations. It enables enterprises to control dynamic traffic passing through a firewall and provides visibility and insight into disparate policies. It helps simplify management tasks, reduce configuration errors and speed up deployment time, all of which contribute to a better overall security posture.
