Comprehensive security management, monitoring, reporting and analytics for MSPs

Guided by business processes and service level requirements, the SonicWall Global Management System (GMS) enables manage service providers (MSP) establish a fully coordinated security governance, compliance and risk management service offering.  It allows MSPs reduce management silos and operating expenses while delivering the ultimate in visibility, agility and capacity to govern the entire SonicWall network security ecosystem with greater clarity, precision, and speed – all from one place.
The feature-rich GMS platform lets MSPs centrally manage SonicWall firewall, wireless access point, email security and secure mobile access solutions, as well as third-party network switch solutions. This is all done via a controlled and auditable work-stream process to keep networks sharp, safe and compliant.  GMS includes centralized policy management and enforcement, real-time event monitoring, granular data analytics and reporting, audit trails, and more, under a unified management platform.
Workflow Automation
Workflow GMS also meets the firewall change management requirements of organizations through workflow automation. This intrinsic, automated process assures the correctness and the compliance of policy changes by enforcing a rigorous process for configuring, comparing, validating, reviewing and approving security management policies prior to deployment. The approval groups are flexible, enabling adherence to company security policies and assuring the right firewall policies are deployed at the right time and in conformance to compliance regulations.

Zero-Touch Deployment
Integrated into GMS is the Zero-Touch Deployment service, which simplifies and speeds the provisioning process for SonicWall firewalls at remote and branch office locations. The process requires minimal user intervention and is fully automated to operationalize firewalls at scale in four easy deployment steps. This significantly reduces the time, cost and complexity associated with installation and configuration, while security and connectivity occur instantly and automatically.Reporting
GMS offers over 140 pre-defined reports as well as the flexibility to create custom reports using any combination of auditable security data.  Every report is designed, with the collective input from many years of SonicWall customer and partner collaborations. This provides the deep granularity, scope and knowledge of syslog and IPFIX/NetFlow data needed to track, measure and run an effective network and security operation.
Live graphical reports simplify managed appliance monitoring in real-time. Security teams can easily identify traffic anomalies based on usage data for a specific timeline, initiator, responder or service. They can also export reports to a Microsoft® Excel® spreadsheet, portable document format (PDF) file or directly to a printer for regular business review.
