SonicWALL UTM named as one of top technologies impacting IT in 2007
SonicWALL, Inc. announced that its PRO 2040 firewall running Unified Threat Management services is a recipient of InfoWorld’s 2007 Technology of the Year honors, winning the award for ‘Best Unified Threat Management’ in the Security category.
In a special report featuring its selection of the best and most innovative hardware and software products of the year, InfoWorld noted, “The SonicWall PRO provides the best all-around mix of features and functionality among the UTM appliances we’ve tested. Setup and policy creation are straightforward, and UTM services work across all traffic types in all situations.”
“We are very pleased to receive InfoWorld’s Technology of the Year award for the second time in two years,” said Matthew Medeiros, president and chief executive officer of SonicWALL. “Although the 2007 award focuses on the UTM capabilities of just one of our firewalls, we believe it also honors SonicWALL’s commitment to making the same UTM protection available to users of all our technology, from our gigabit-class PRO 5060 platform to our entry-level TZ products. UTM is one of the most important defenses in a layered security solution, regardless of the size of the organization.”
