UMA EM5000 Universal Management Appliance
Enjoy a whole new approach to managing apps, services and policies.
The Dell™ SonicWALL™ E-Class Universal Management Appliance (UMA) centralizes policy management, monitoring and reporting for multiple Dell SonicWALL appliances. The UMA provides an effective way to configure, enforce and manage global policies for Dell 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 devices, when deployed in a cluster, can scale to manage up to thousands of Dell SonicWALL security appliances. In addition, one or more UMA devices can be clustered with software agents or virtual appliance agents deployed on third party hardware. This makes the Dell 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.
Centralized security and network management.
Dell SonicWALL GMS gives administrators the integrated tools to deploy, manage and monitor all security policies and services throughout a large-scale, multiple policy enterprise or service provider environment.
Easy policy management.
Administrators can set policies for thousands of Dell SonicWALL firewalls, anti-spam, Continuous Data Protection backup and recovery, and secure remote access solutions from a central location. Administrators can also use GMS to simplify the enablement of VPN connectivity and consolidate thousands of security policies.
The universal dashboard features customizable widgets, geographic maps and user-centric reporting
Active-device monitoring and alerting provides real-time alert capabilities to facilitate troubleshooting efforts, allowing administrators to take preventative action and deliver immediate remediation.
A central location for logging consolidates security events and logs for thousands of appliances, providing a single point to conduct network forensics.
Easily schedule and deploy configuration changes and/or firmware updates on managed Dell SonicWALL appliances to minimize service disruptions.
Streamlined license management.
A single unified console simplifies the management of security and support for Dell SonicWALL license subscriptions.
Powerful, real-time traps for Dell SonicWALL TCP/IP and SNMP-devices and applications greatly enhance troubleshooting efforts to pinpoint and respond to critical network events.
Rich integrations options.
Take advantage of an application programming interface (API) for web services, CLI support for the majority of functions, and SNMP trap support for both service providers and enterprises.
Real-time and historic reporting.
A revolutionary enhancement to support next-generation Syslog reporting streamlines the time-consuming summarization process, allowing for near real-time reporting on incoming Syslog messages providing the ability to extensively drill down into data and customize reports.
Extensive cross-platform reporting capabilities include support for numerous Dell SonicWALL products, including firewalls, anti-spam, backup and recovery, and secure remote access platforms.
Intelligent reporting and activity visualization.
Gain greater insight into usage trends and security events through comprehensive management and graphical reports that also deliver a cohesive branding for service providers.
Flexible deployment options.
Dell SonicWALL GMS can be flexibly deployed as a software application on a third party Windows® server (leveraging existing infrastructure), as a Dell SonicWALL E-Class Universal Management Appliance EM5000 (leveraging a hardened high-performance appliance), or as a Dell SonicWALL GMS Virtual Appliance in a VMware® environment (further leveraging shared computing resources to optimize server utilization, ease migration and reduce capital costs).
