SonicWALL Inc. introduced last week what it claims as the world's first sub-$400 small business firewall supporting gateway anti-virus and intrusion prevention.

The new TZ 150 provides protection from viruses, worms, Trojans and other content-based attacks in an integrated security solution for small networks, delivering an exceptional combination of security, affordability and ease-of use, said the company. It addition, it presents a single point for filtering undesirable network traffic.

"There is no such thing as a small-business virus," said Kevin Luk, Greater China manager of SonicWALL. "A two-person operation is just as exposed as a large organization to attacks from gateway traffic, yet until today protection was beyond many small firms' price range or IT capabilities. The TZ 150 delivers the latest integrated anti-virus and VPN features and is highly affordable, very easy to use, and ideal for small businesses with limited access to IT support."

Extending SonicWALL's TZ appliance series, the TZ 150 combines VPN and firewall capabilities with powerful gateway anti-virus and intrusion prevention, content filtering and enforced anti-virus in single, compact device. It supports the company's Gateway Anti-Virus and Intrusion Prevention Service, which is capable of scanning very high numbers of files of unlimited size for viruses. The service supports multiple protocol types and provides updated, comprehensive protection against threats including buffer overflows, worms, Trojans and backdoor exploits.

The TZ 150 supports hardware-accelerated IPSec 3DES and AES encryption as well as SonicWALL Global VPN Client upgrades for secure remote access to critical network resources. Its compact form factor incorporates a single auto-MDIX Ethernet WAN port and a four-port auto-MDIX LAN switch, allowing multiple devices to connect safely to the network.

Available immediately, the TZ 150 ships with 30 days free subscription to Gateway Anti-Virus/Intrusion Prevention Service and Content Filtering Service.
