Cloud Security

SonicWall has introduced the SonicWall Capture Cloud Platform, which tightly integrates security, management, analytics and real-time threat intelligence across the company’s full portfolio of network, email, mobile and cloud security products. SonicWall also is introducing new and enhanced products in its portfolio of hardware, virtual appliances and endpoint clients.

The significance of the unified and connected SonicWall Capture Cloud Platform is highlighted by the escalating threat landscape. In the first quarter of 2018 alone, the average SonicWall customer faced 7,739 malware attacks, a year-over-year increase of 151 percent; 335 of these attacks were hidden using SSL/TLS encryption.

The SonicWall Capture Cloud Platform also identified more than 49,800 new attack variants in the first quarter, with SonicWall Real-Time Deep Memory Inspection (RTDMI) identifying 3,500 never-before-seen variants.

“Winning the cyber arms race requires a consistent, agile and reputable stream of real-time cyber threat intelligence,” said SonicWall president and CEO, Bill Conner. “The new SonicWall Capture Cloud Platform ensures organizations are always protected by the absolute latest information — updates, signatures and alerts — to automatically defend their networks from the most advanced cyberattacks.”

To aid organizations in mitigating growing volumes and variants of cyberattacks, the SonicWall Capture Cloud Platform provides intelligence, management and analytics to supplement SonicWall’s complete portfolio of cybersecurity hardware, virtual appliances and endpoint clients for an efficient, easy-to-use and connected customer experience. The newly announced cloud platform includes:

* Capture Security Center for customer-specific visibility, device management, advanced analytics and reporting.

* SonicWall Capture Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), a cloud sandbox service that uses multiple analysis techniques, including SonicWall’s patent-pending RTDMI technology, to block malware and zero-day threats until a verdict is reached.

* SonicWall Capture Client, a unified, next-generation endpoint protection solution with ‘rollback’ capabilities.

* Hosted Email Security, a cloud-based security solution to protect organizations from email-borne threats such as ransomware, zero-day threats, spear phishing and business email compromise (BEC).

* SonicWall Capture Labs Threat Network to automate breach prevention and instantaneous sharing of threat intelligence across SonicWall firewalls, SonicWall Capture Client, Email Security and mobility solutions.
