|SonicWALL Global Management System (GMS) provides small organizations, enterprises and service providers with flexible, powerful and intuitive tools to centrally manage security policies for a few to thousands of remote SonicWALL Internet security appliances, VPN and security services such as gateway anti-virus, anti-spyware, intrusion prevention and content filtering. SonicWALL GMS scales with growing networks and offers centralized reporting and monitoring, distributed management of configurations and policies, redundancy and load balancing.|
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.
Comprehensive monitoring 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.
Custom reporting 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
SonicWALL GMS gives administrators the integrated tools to manage all security policies and services throughout a large-scale, multiple policy enterprise or service provider environment. Administrators can easily configure settings for SonicWALL firewall, anti-spam, backup and recovery, and secure remote access products and add SonicWALL upgrade and subscription services, such as Gateway Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware and Intrusion Prevention Service, Client/Server Anti-Virus Suite and Content Filtering Service with the click of a button.
SonicWALL GMS delivers a cost-effective global security management solution that reduces staffing requirements, speeds up deployment and lowers the cost of managing security services.
SonicWALL GMS allows administrators to easily create security policies for the SonicWALL network security, backup and recovery, anti-spam, and secure remote access solutions and enforce them at the global, group or unit level.
SonicWALL GMS allows administrators to generate a wide range of informative and historical reports to provide insight into usage trends, such as which Web sites have been accessed by whom and security events of your managed SonicWALL appliances.
