SonicWALL Provides ImageSys LLC With Superior Anti-Spam Offering for Small and Mid-Size Business Clients

December 9, 2008

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — SonicWALL, Inc.
(Nasdaq: SNWL), a leading secure network infrastructure company, today
announced that ImageSys, LLC, a pioneering technology solutions provider and
SonicWALL Silver Partner located in the greater Washington, D.C. area, has
successfully deployed award-winning SonicWALL(R) Email Security (SES) at a
wide range of small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), including medical,
financial, architectural and non-profit environments.

SES is an award-winning anti-spam, anti-virus, anti-phishing, policy, and
compliance management e-mail protection solution. While some competitive
products are only available as server-resident software, SES is offered either
as Windows software, or as a completely separate hardened appliance designed
to significantly reduce server overhead and enhance security.

“We’ve tested different anti-spam products like Barracuda, both in our
test labs and in real-world networks out in the field,” said Hamed Rahimi,
President, ImageSys LLC. “Nothing has come close to SonicWALL.”

Over the last six months, ImageSys has deployed nearly half a dozen SES
appliances for SMB customers like Disabled Sports USA, a nationwide sports
rehabilitation organization supporting people with permanent disabilities.
“SonicWALL attacked their spam problem immediately,” said Rahimi. “The
difference was like night and day.”

“SonicWALL has presented the best competitive value for the price point
when we’ve compared it to Cisco or Barracuda,” said Rahimi. “SonicWALL lets us
offer our customers an anti-spam solution that really works.”

The unique SonicWALL GRID Network collects billions of e-mail reputation
inputs from SonicWALL customers as well as spam-traps, real-time black lists,
and desktop users. SES uses this to quickly and accurately identify new
threats and keep SMBs protected with automatic spam and virus updates every
five minutes. “Other products we’ve looked at can take an hour between
updates,” said Rahimi. “In that time we can easily receive dozens of new spam

SES protects ImageSys clients against inbound spam, phishing, viruses,
Denial-of-Service, Directory Harvest and Zombie attacks, while securing
outbound leaks of confidential information and violations of regulatory
compliance laws without requiring additional separate compliance modules. SES
also makes it easy for end users to safely manage their own allow-list
filtering without burdening IT.

SES leverages existing LDAP data, enabling ImageSys to streamline
deployment and administration by eliminating dual-entry of user information.
“Configuration is almost immediate,” said Rahimi. “Maintenance and
administration has been painless compared with other spam filters. It even
gives me graphic reporting to track actual ROI.”

“The great thing about SES is that it works in any environment, with any
e-mail server,” said Rahimi. “Our customers don’t want to take on any costly
alteration of their existing infrastructure just to take care of spam.”

ImageSys is now also able to offer its clients the additional flexibility
and expansion capability of the recently-released SonicWALL(R) Email Security
for Microsoft Windows(R) Small Business Server (SES for SBS). SES for SBS is
specifically designed to install directly on the SBS hardware server in order
to provide ease of installation and low cost of ownership. It integrates with
SBS to deliver superior anti-spam, anti-phishing, and anti-virus protection,
and prevent DHA, DOS attacks by employing advanced connection management
before mail traffic reaches SBS. Additionally, SES for SBS offers
centrally-managed rules and policies as well as superior reporting and
management, helping IT to reduce time spent administrating e-mail protection.
