Analyzer

Centralized visualization, analytics & reporting for Dell SonicWALL security appliances.

Dell™ SonicWALL™ Analyzer is an easy to use web-based traffic analytics and reporting tool that provides real-time and historical insight into the health, performance and security of the network. Analyzer supports Dell SonicWALL firewalls, backup and recovery (Continuous Data Protection) appliances, and secure remote access devices while leveraging application traffic analytics for security event reports. Dell SonicWALL is the only firewall vendor that provides a complete solution that combines off-box application traffic analytics with granular statistical data generated by Dell SonicWALL firewalls.

Real-time and historic traffic analysis.

Traffic analysis utilizing granular next-generation syslog data provides advanced troubleshooting capabilities to assist in identifying the location of network outages and slowdowns by surfacing what applications are used by what users and systems.

Graphical Reports+

Graphical Reports

Businesses gain increased visibility into suspicious network activity and employee productivity with comprehensive graphical reports on firewall bandwidth usage statistics, threats, and per user application traffic analysis.

Next-generation syslog reporting.

Revolutionary architecture enhancements streamline data summarization and allow for near real-time reporting of incoming syslog messages. Direct access to the underlying raw data further facilitates extensive granular capabilities and offers highly customizable reporting.

SRA user reporting.

Administrators gain valuable insight into user activity as well as appliance health and behavior through Secure Remote Access (SRA) event reporting.

CDP event reporting.

Custom proprietary next-generation reporting provides a detailed view of Continuous Data Protection (CDP) appliance well-being and user agent statistics.

Universal scheduled reports.

With universal scheduled reports, administrators have a single entry point for all scheduled reports. Administrators can choose to generate a single report that combines charts and tables for multiple units. Reports can be scheduled and sent out in various formats to one or more email addresses.

At-a-glance reporting.

Customizable views illustrate multiple summary reports on a single page. Users can easily navigate through vital network metrics to analyze data quickly across a variety of reports.

Compliance reporting.

Administrators can generate reports that fulfill compliance requirements on an ad-hoc and scheduled basis to meet specific regulatory mandates.

Multi-Threat Reporting+

Multi-Threat Reporting

Multi-threat reporting.

With the Gateway Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Intrusion Prevention, Application Intelligence and Control Service, businesses can collect information on thwarted attacks and receive instant access to threat activities detected by Dell SonicWALL firewalls.

User-based reporting.

Individual user activities are tracked locally or on remote network sites to provide even greater insight into traffic usage across the entire network and get a closer look at application usage, web sites visited, backup activity, and VPN connections per user.

New attack intelligence.

Granular reporting allows administrators to quickly react to incoming threats with new attack intelligence including types of attacks or intrusion attempts and the source address of the attacker.

Flexible deployment options.

Dell SonicWALL Analyzer can be deployed as either a Windows application or a Virtual Appliance.  By deploying Dell SonicWALL Analyzer as a Virtual Appliance in a VMware environment, organizations can leverage shared computing resources to optimize utilization, ease migration and reduce capital costs.
