Sonicwall Pro 4060 & 3060
Based on the recently updated SonicOS 2.0 operating system, the Sonicwall Pro 4060 is a highly scalable internet security appliance, as is its cheaper sibling, the Pro 3060.
Both products are aimed at corporates and can handle multiple LAN/WAN connections. They offer firewall and virtual private network (VPN) functionality and include a WAN port, a VPN gateway, and failover for maximum availability. Antivirus and content filtering tools can be added, and the SonicOS 2.0 management interface has been enhanced.
The same base hardware is used to power both the Pro 4060 and Pro 3060. A 1U rack-mount case features a 2GHz Intel processor with 256MB of RAM and 64MB of secure Compact Flash memory to hold the updateable firmware. A separate security Asic (application-specific integrated circuit) is incorporated to offload encryption processing from the main CPU.
