Centralized Internet Security Monitoring and Management Solution
SonicWALL Global Management System enables small organizations, distributed enterprises and service providers to monitor and manage anywhere from a few to thousands of SonicWALL Internet security appliances, all from a central location. SonicWALL GMS is a costeffective global management solution that reduces staffing requirements, speeds up deployment, and lowers the cost of managing security services.
Highly scalable, sophisticated security management system
Extending SonicWALL's renowned easy-to-use management interface, SonicWALL GMS provides a highly scalable, sophisticated security management system for geographically distributed networks. 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 configure SonicWALL firewall settings as well as SonicWALL upgrade and subscription services, such as VPN, gateway anti-virus, intrusion prevention and content filtering via a Web-based interface. Security policies can be centrally pushed to SonicWALL Internet security appliances on an individual, group or global basis over encrypted VPN tunnels to ensure maximum security.
Configuration and management
Configuration and management tools for comprehensive security management allow administrators to globally define, distribute, enforce and deploy a full range of VPN and security policies for thousands of SonicWALL appliances.
Managed VPN services
Managed VPN services allows administrators to globally define, distribute, enforce, deploy and monitor VPN policies for SonicWALL VPN gateways that use both standard and enhanced firmware.
Active-network monitoring lowers maintenance costs, reduces network and system downtime and improves customer service by providing real-time active monitoring of both networks and systems. Net monitor includes device up/down status, latency monitoring, application monitoring, VPN monitoring and statistics, uptime calculations, and security events for GMS management activities.
Manage remote VPN client connections
Network administrators can manage remote VPN client connections by defining user policies for remote Global VPN Client users. Centralized graphical reporting
Centralized graphical reporting of firewall and network activities provides insight into usage trends and security events of the SonicWALL appliances.
Visualization viewer provides detailed, graphical maps of the GMS security management deployment, speeding up and simplifying the exploration and understanding of large GMS deployments.
Streamlined license management
Streamlined license management simplifies storing, applying, tracking and updating security license information for all managed SonicWALL appliances.
Multi-tier policy hierarchy architecture allows administrators to create a hierarchy that groups SonicWALL appliances with similar security profiles, providing the flexibility to manage security policies on an individual, group, regional or global level.
Segments and distributes management responsibilities among a group of individuals and assign different privileges for distributed security management.
Customizable viewing capabilities enable network administrators to visualize the managed SonicWALL appliances at any logical view, including a hierarchical view using pre-defined or customized attributes.
SNMP support provides a powerful, real-time alert mechanism that greatly enhances the ability to pinpoint and respond to critical network events.
