Dell is acquiring new pieces of the IT infrastructure stack at an impressive pace lately, Compellent, Force10, AppAssure, and now Sonicwall, one of my favorite players in the cost-conscious security space.

Sonicwall is not a startup, their products are very well known and established in the SMB and SME space, and recently they started venturing in the enterprise next-gen firewall space with their SuperMassive E10000 series, as well as incorporating the Aventail acquisition in their secure remote access product line with a convincing portfolio for both SMB/SME (SRA) and High end (E-Class) market.

This new acquisition brings Dell a in-house security offering perfectly tailored to their current market needs and with a strong platform to venture into the highest end of the IT buyers, a platform that is able to challenge the existing status quo even in the pickiest enterprise.
