SonicWall NSA 2400
The Network Security Appliance (NSA) 2400 has been designed to suit small and mid-sized organisations with less than 100 employees as well as branch offices. SonicWall claims it offers a new generation of unified threat management by taking advantage of the vendor's recently announced Reassembly Free Deep Packet Inspection (RFDPI) 8 engine. This engine uses multi-core design to inspect both inbound and outbound network traffic and gives organisations control and visibility over the security of their network. The NSA 2400 offers the same layered security approach found across SonicWall's entire NSA series including intrusion prevention, file and content antivirus/antispyware inspection to protect against viruses, spyware, worms, trojans and phishing attacks. It also has an integrated application firewall which provides application visibility and data leakage prevention capabilities. This feature set delivers configurable tools while providing granular application control that can be set per user, per email user, per schedule and per IP subnet levels.

Extreme BlackDiamond 8800 "c" Series
Extreme Networks has enhanced its BlackDiamond 8800 modular switch family with a new "c" series interface and management blades. These blades, which are backwards compatible with earlier versions of the BlackDiamond 8800 family, deliver scalability and density for gigabit and 10-gigabit ports and field-upgradable power over Ethernet support without compromising the product family's low power consumption, the vendor claims. For flexible integrated security capability, the BlackDiamond 8800 family supports Clear-Flow rules engine, previously available only on Extreme Networks' high-end core products. With Clear-Flow and the predefined security rules now available to users, the 8800 series combines ready-to-use, integrated intrusion detection with a modifiable rules-based security capability that can be upgraded to meet future demands. These enhancements extend the service life of the switch by delivering new features and high level performance.
