Capture Security Appliance Getting Started Guide

Configure Allowed Devices

Allowed devices are those firewalls, API Connectors, and Email Security systems from which the CSa will accept files for analysis. Configuring allowed devices is therefore a critical step in the initial setup of your Capture Security Appliance.

To begin the configuration, log into your CSa as the administrator and navigate to the Configuration > Allowed Devices page.

To add an allowed firewall

  1. For adding a single device, click +Add Firewall to open the Add New Firewall dialog. For multiple devices, click Import to open the Import Firewalls From File dialog.

  2. Enter the Serial Number, Friendly Name and Rate Limit information.
  3. Click OK.

To add an allowed API Connector

  1. Click +Add API Key to open the Add New API Connector dialog.

  2. Enter the Friendly Name and Rate Limit information.
  3. Click OK.

To add an allowed Email Security system

  1. For adding a single device, click +Add Email Security to open the Add New Email Security dialog. For multiple devices, click Import to open the Import Email Security Devices From File dialog.

  2. Enter the Serial Number, Friendly Name and Rate Limit information.
  3. Click OK.

This is the last step needed for initial setup of your Capture Security Appliance. You may also wish to configure users, user roles, reporting options and other settings, and you will need to connect and configure your firewalls and other devices to communicate with your CSa. These topics are covered in other SonicWall documentation, described in the Related Documents for Additional Configuration section.
