TZ 170 Sonic Wall
The TZ 170 SonicWall is a solution for businesses that rely on their communications to transmit mission critical information between headquarters and remote locations securely.
This is especially the case when it comes to small and branch offices, retail shops, hotels, banks and even gas stations that exchange customer purchase and inventory information during transactions.
After all, the ability to transmit this data securely through a network that is always accessable is critical. The TZ 170 SonicWall is a high-performance, multi-layer network security platform that provides businesses, telecommuters and small office networks with constant access to critical data.
I like the fact that if the primary broadband connection is interrupted, the TZ 170 SP will provide continuous uptime for VPN connectivity by automatically failing over to either a second WAN connection or an integrated analog modem.
Once the broadband connection is re-established, it will detect the restored connection and automatically fail back, ensuring the best possible connectivity.
Safety wise, it offers real-time gateway anti-virus, anti-spyware and intrusion prevention capabilities for protection against viruses, spyware, worms,Trojans and other malicious threats.
In addition, the TZ 170 has built-in anti-spam protection and support for SonicWALL’s Content Filtering Service, allowing for enhanced productivity and network utilization.
Price wise, you can pick up a unit for about $600 retail with a 1 year warranty, however, I have found them on sale at around $375 new and as low as $135 used.
So, if you are ready to buy one or are just thinking about it, I suggest you visit several online shops to compare prices.
This way, you are sure to get the very best deal possible for a TZ 170 SonicWall.
