Cloud Hash Lookup

SonicWall uses Cloud Hash Lookup as a way of looking up previously analyzed file results using data hashes, MD5, SHA1, and SHA256, as reputation lookup. This option is enabled by default. Disabling the option could result in your devices taking more time to analyze and block malware that has previously been analyzed.

Enabling Upload Analysis Result allows your CSa to share and contribute to the global database of malicious files by contributing a hash along with a verdict. Sharing file hashes helps to rapidly slow the spread of malware across the globe.
