Centralized security and network management is achieved using a flexible, powerful and intuitive tool to deploy, manage and monitor a distributed network environment and set policies from a central location.
Sophisticated VPN deployment and configuration enables distributed enterprise networks to reduce the administration time, costs and complexity associated with establishing and maintaining corporate security policies, VPN connectivity and network configurations.
Active device monitoring and alerting supplies real-time alerts with integrated monitoring capabilities allowing administrators to take preventative action and deliver immediate remediation.
Centralized logging provides a central location for consolidating security events and logs for thousands of appliances, thereby allowing for a single point to conduct network forensics.
Flexible deployment options include software (leveraging existing infrastructure), hardware (leveraging a hardened high-performance appliance), or a virtual appliance (leveraging shared computing resources to optimize utilization, ease migration and reduce capital costs).
Intelligent reporting and activity visualisation presents comprehensive management and graphical reports for security devices and user activity yielding greater insight into application usage trends and security events.
Offline management enables scheduled configurations and/or firmware updates on managed appliances to occur offline to minimize service disruption to end users and customers.
Streamlined license manager displays a unified console for storing, applying, tracking and updating security license information for managed SonicWALL appliances, thereby simplifying the inventory for managing security and support license subscriptions.
Rich integration options include a Web services application programming interface (API), CLI support for the majority of functions, and SNMP trap support.
