Healthcare Revenue Management Service Provider Chooses SonicWALL to Satisfy Business Need for Flexible UTM Configuration
SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SonicWALL, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNWL), a leading secure network infrastructure company, today announced that ZirMed, Inc., a leader in revenue cycle management solutions for healthcare providers based in Louisville, Kentucky, has implemented a SonicWALL(R) E-Class NSA E6500 appliance to provide flexible high-speed gateway firewall protection at its corporate data center.
