The SonicWALL® E-Class Universal Management Appliance (UMA) centralizes policy management, monitoring and reporting for multiple SonicWALL appliances. The UMA provides an effective way to configure, enforce and manage global policies for SonicWALL firewall, anti-spam, backup and recovery, and secure remote access solutions. The appliance simplifies and automates multi-level policy management, monitoring and compliance reporting with flexible, powerful and intuitive tools. Multiple UMA appliances, when deployed in a cluster, can scale to manage up to thousands of SonicWALL security appliances. This makes the SonicWALL UMA an ideal solution for small-to-medium sized businesses, enterprises and managed service providers that have either single-site or distributed multi-site environments.
Features and Benefits Unified policy management
across SonicWALL firewall, anti-spam, secure remote access, and backup and recovery appliances and services enforces granular controls from a single global platform, easing deployment and administration, and providing greater efficiency in meeting service level agreements (SLAs). Offline management capabilities include scheduled configurations and/or firmware updates on managed appliances, thus providing predictable service disruptions.
provides centralized logging and proactive analyses of network traffic, Web usage and security threats across a vast deployment. Devices and applications enabled for automated real-time alerts accelerate response and remediation time to network events or outages.
aids strategic analysis, assists in complying with regulations such as PCI, SOX and HIPAA, provides cohesive corporate branding, and enhances security subscription service offerings. The EM5000 provides graphical reports of firewall and network activities to provide insight into application usage trends and security events from a single user or device to the global activity of the managed SonicWALL appliances
Reliable, secure and optimized architecture
is purpose-built for SonicWALL solutions to maximize security and performance. The hardened EM5000 appliance comes with a tuned operating system and database, and eliminates the operating expense of acquiring, configuring, and deploying on unproven general-purpose hardware. High availability across clustered failover sites assures reliable system uptime, and speeds disaster recovery operations.
Intuitive management dashboard
simplifies licensing, and eases the centralized definition, control and deployment of up to thousands of appliances and custom policies. The SonicWALL policy dashboard presents the largest and most comprehensive hierarchies of SonicWALL appliances in an easy-to-understand format, greatly simplifying navigation and decreasing time spent on remediation and system maintenance
