SonicWALL named leading vendor in worldwide UTM market

  • 22 September, 2005 07:48

<p>SONICWALL IS THE LEADING VENDOR IN WORLDWIDE UTM SECURITY APPLIANCE MARKET FOR SECOND CONSECUTIVE QUARTER</p>
<p>Sydney. – September 20, 2005 – SonicWALL, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNWL) today announced it has maintained its leadership position in Unified Threat Management (UTM) security appliances worldwide in the second quarter of 2005 for both unit shipments and factory revenue, according to results released by IDC in its Worldwide Quarterly Security Appliance Tracker, September 2005.</p>
<p>In a robust market showing continued UTM security appliance revenue and unit shipment growth compared to the first quarter of 2005, SonicWALL was once again the leading global vendor in the UTM category. SonicWALL integrated unified threat management capabilities into its entire product line at the end of 2004.</p>
<p>"Without a constantly updated threat management solution, a firewall is subject to attack before you have even finished installing it,” said Tim Dickinson, Country Manager, SonicWALL, ANZ. “Internet threats don’t discriminate between the scale of the network they attack, and we believe that everyone should have access to the best network protection. We have therefore made our UTM capabilities affordable, powerful and available to all our users, regardless of the size of their business.”</p>
<p>“SonicWALL appliances deliver incredibly powerful UTM capabilities across the board. Demand for appliances integrating multiple security technologies in one managed appliance is rising, and SonicWALL’s capabilities in that regard make it extremely easy to provide maximum protection to our clients’ networks,” said Dickinson. “The fact that SonicWALL devices are automatically downloaded with the latest security updates without any intervention decreases our customers’ security management overheads, allowing them to spend time on other IT projects while we look after their network security needs.”</p>
