Cybersecurity giant SonicWall has supersized its threat protection across its entire portfolio of security solutions in what CEO Bill Conner is calling a ‘landmark announcement’.
The company’s new SonicWall Capture Cloud Platform integrates security, management, analytics, and real-time threat intelligence across its entire portfolio of solutions including network, email, mobile, and cloud security products.
The new integration comes during a time when the threat landscape is escalating rapidly – in the first quarter of 2018, the average SonicWall customer battled 7,739 malware attacks. Many attacks were hidden behind SSL/TLS encryption.
“Winning the cyber arms race requires a consistent, agile and reputable stream of real-time cyber threat intelligence,” explains Conner.
Those wins require a combination of software including machine learning, and threat intelligence sharing, as well as SonicWall’s cybersecurity hardware, virtual appliances, and endpoint clients.
“This integrated, connected and real-time platform is the result of more than two decades of innovation, research, engineering and expertise,” adds SonicWall CTO John Gmuender.
“Today’s cyber threats are so agile and advanced that protecting customers on a by-the-minute basis is critical to delivering positive security outcomes.”
SonicWall Capture Cloud Platform includes:
“The new SonicWall Capture Cloud Platform ensures organisations are always protected by the absolute latest information — updates, signatures and alerts — to automatically defend their networks from the most advanced cyberattacks,” Conner adds.
Beyond its Capture Cloud Platform, the company also announced a new range of SonicWall NSv virtual firewalls and an update to its NSa Firewalls, a Web Application Firewall (WAF), and extended next-generation endpoint protection through the SonicWall Capture Client.
“The new Capture Cloud Platform helps ensure you and your organization are always protected by the absolute latest threat intelligence — updates, signatures and alerts — to automatically defend your networks, data and other sensitive information from today’s most advanced cyberattacks. That’s SonicWall’s commitment to you,” Conner concludes.
