Scale faster, protect more and re-gain control. The new SonicOS 7 architecture is SonicWall’s most advanced security operating system and is at the core of our latest physical and virtual firewalls, including models from the TZ, NSv and NSsp Series.
To reduce user’s cognitive load, SonicOS 7 features rule visualization that offers quick and intuitive insights into the type of traffic the rule is for, what it does from a security inspection perspective, and what traffic is hitting it. The newly designed security rules interface also enables inline edits, as well as other capabilities for greater ease of use.
Adding, removing or changing rules can result in misconfigurations that expose networks, data and users to attackers. SonicOS 7 includes new features such as visibility in custom rules and hit counts, shadow rule detection and rule optimization to eliminate misconfigurations. With its focus on improved usability, SonicOS 7 makes it easier than ever to keep the security rule base tidy and manageable.
SonicOS 7 provides a topology view of your firewall and the endpoints behind it — including dashboards that detail the traffic passing through your firewalls, who is responsible for it, and what threats it contains. The new SonicOS Notification Center displays actionable alerts, allowing administrators to take immediate action on firewall-related events. And a new Capture Threat Assessment Report provides executive-level, summarized insights into traffic, risky applications, and a variety of malware and other threats.
“With the re-developed SonicOS 7, the speed of the interface feels like working on a powerful computer. It’s smooth and sleek and allows for a more granular dissection of what the firewall is doing. Paired with the new NSM Network Security Manager, where the interfaces are practically identical, it is a GUI match made in heaven.”
Featuring new Unified Security Policy capabilities, SonicOSX 7 simplifies complex policy, audit and management controls with firmware designed for large-scale enterprises and government agencies. Get powerful threat protection and gain visibility across distributed and hybrid networks.
