SonicWALL has unveiled 'Project SuperMassive', a security platform and technology that the company claims is capable of detecting and controlling applications, preventing intrusions, and blocking malware at up to 40 Gbps without introducing latency to the network.

"Marking one of the most significant milestones in the company's 19-year history, SonicWALL today unveiled Project SuperMassive, the industry's first next-generation security platform and technology capable of detecting and controlling applications, preventing intrusions, and blocking malware at up to 40 Gbps without introducing latency to the network.

"Project SuperMassive comprises key elements, including: SonicWALL's Massively Scalable Next-Generation Network Security Platform architecture, SonicWALL's Next-Generation Firewall technology, and SonicWALL's patented Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection (RF-DPI) engine. At more than 10 times the speed of today's fastest technologies, Project SuperMassive revolutionizes application visualization and control, and is capable of protecting the world's highest performance networks from malware of all kinds. Today, companies are being forced to choose between performance and security, since existing security architectures have not been able to keep up with the volume of network traffic, especially with the explosion of rich media and the rise in malware-ridden social media applications."
