Bill Conner, CEOSonicWall has been preventing cybercrime for over 25 years, defending small- and medium-size businesses and enterprises worldwide. Backed by research from the Capture Labs Threat Network, the company’s award-winning, real-time breach detection and prevention solutions — coupled with the formidable resources and expertise of more than 18,000 loyal channel partners around the globe — are the backbone securing more than 1 million business and mobile networks and their email, applications and data.
This combination of products, innovation and partnerships delivers real-time cyber defense solutions, tuned to the specific needs of the more than 500,000 businesses in more than 150 countries around the world.
Since SonicWall became an independent company from Dell in November 2016, it has achieved aggressive financial and operational metrics set across sales, partner engagement, service and support—a testament to its 25-year track record of cybersecurity leadership.
In fact, since SonicWall became independent and launched its SecureFirst Partner Program in November 2016, partner deal registration has exceeded 50 percent, reflecting over $360 million in new pipeline. Further, 6,000 of SonicWall’s 19,000- plus partners are new to SonicWall.
“Our success is driven by the hard work and dedication of the entire SonicWall team, as well as the tremendous strength of our channel partners around the world,” says Bill Conner, CEO of SonicWall. “With less than a year of independence in the books, I’m confident that the best is yet to come for SonicWall.”
In the face of a constantly evolving threat landscape, SonicWall continues to introduce innovations to its global partner community, which serve as trusted advisors to customers worldwide.
For example, SonicWall’s flagship, award-winning Capture Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) service is a cloud-based, multi-engine network security sandbox that not only identifies new malware variants, but also safely contains and stops zero-day threats.
Data recorded and analyzed indicates that there are as many as 1,000 or more new variants that threaten SonicWall customer networks each business day.

Due to partner and customer demand, SonicWall has integrated Capture across its product lines from the Email Security platform to Secure Mobile Access solution. In fact, in the second quarter of 2017, SonicWall Capture ATP reported a 77 percent increase in licenses sold over the previous quarter.
In September, the company announced the largest number of new products and software that it has ever delivered to the market, all of which have been designed to support SonicWall’s powerful platform that helps businesses automate real-time breach detection and prevention while exceeding speed and performance expectations.
This launch included the biggest SonicWall OS release in history — SonicOS 6.5, which features an evolution of the user interface and experience, advanced wireless security features and new multi-domain authentication capabilities. The release also included the new NSA 2650 next-generation firewall appliance, which is the first branch and campus firewall to secure2.5G wired and 802.11ac Wave 2 wireless networks.
Additionally, SonicWall launched a complete line of 2.5G-enabled wireless indoor and outdoor SonicWave 802.11ac Wave 2 access points and introduced SonicWall’s new Cloud Analytics service, which provides deep security contexts, forensic analysis, visualization and reporting for network traffic.
SonicWall’s impressive momentum has not flown under the radar. In the past year, the company has received more than 25 unique industry awards highlighting the strength of its products and executive team.
“I’m proud to say that today, SonicWall has the right combination of effective management, engaged channel partners and innovative technology and services to help our customers not only run more effectively, but also fear less,” adds Conner.
