Well only 9 days after my blog about setting up some hardware redundancy of a pair of Sonicwall Pro 3060’s Dell has announced its intent to acquire Sonicwall:
“This morning, Dell® announced its intent to acquire SonicWALL®. This is exciting news for SonicWALL as it opens up new opportunities for growth for our company and solutions.
For you, our customer, nothing changes. SonicWALL continues business as usual and you can continue to rely on our products, support and partners as you’ve done in the past.
Dell is committed to invest in the future of SonicWALL’s product lines. As a result, you will continue to see new and leading-edge Network Security and Data Protection solutions from SonicWALL. Our expanded infrastructure will deliver even greater support for our customers. With our employees remaining at the company, the way you do business with SonicWALL will not change.
SonicWALL will become Dell’s center of excellence for security appliance solutions, extending Dell’s security capabilities already in place with the Dell SecureWorks security services, cloud security solutions, data encryption solutions, mobile device management and Dell KACE vulnerability and patch management.
The acquisition is the next step in Dell’s strategy to expand its solutions capabilities for customers and simplify management of their IT infrastructure. This vision is a perfect match for SonicWALL that has delivered easy-to-use, high-performance network security solutions to SMB and enterprise organizations for over 20 years.
We look forward to providing you with the high-quality network security solutions you trust and will continue to keep you informed of the progress of this acquisition. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact your local SonicWALL representative.”
