Customers Validate the Advanced Protection Provided by SonicWALL Capture, Now Available With the Release of SonicOS 6.2.6
SonicWALL customers observed dramatic increases in their network security during the technical preview of SonicWALL Capture Advanced Threat Protection Service. With the general availability of SonicOS 6.2.6 firmware announced today, SonicWALL Capture is the industry’s first multi-engine sandbox that enables customers to block suspicious files until a verdict is reached. Additionally, SonicOS 6.2.6 features an enhanced Content Filtering Service that gives organizations the power to easily enforce protection and productivity policies to control access to inappropriate or unproductive web content.
Malicious code authors have developed techniques allowing malware to detect the presence of existing sandboxes and use this information to evade detection. To combat these techniques, SonicWALL Capture utilizes three technically different cloud-based threat analysis sandboxing engines, making evasion almost impossible. Capture also has the ability to accept the broadest range of file sizes and types and can be configured to block suspicious files from entering the system until a verdict is reached.
Angel Torres, CIO of Credit Services, Inc. reports, "The new SonicWALL Capture service is another key addition to the suite of security tools that help us battle the new challenges that we face on a daily basis. By providing this new service, it feels like we have a partner working with us in the fight to keep our system secured. By preventing malicious files from entering our system, it helps keep our clients and our company more secure from new threats as they emerge."
"We did some evaluations of other sandbox solutions, but SonicWALL Capture was the easiest to implement and most cost effective to license and manage. Because it’s offered as an upgrade to our firewall and only requires a firmware update, testing and eventual deployment into a production environment was really easy. We are looking at utilizing this at our other sites as we focus on multiple, layered approaches to security," stated Zachary A. Radke of Santa Fe Senior Living.
SonicWALL Content Filtering Service 4.0 offers better performance and ease of use
The new SonicWALL Content Filtering Service 4.0 available in SonicOS 6.2.6 enables IT to enforce protection and productivity policies and block inappropriate, unproductive and illegal web content from the network. Key new features in this version include:
"The SonicWALL CFS version 4.0 has given us more power over the filtering system by allowing us to control the priority of the policies," George Morris, IT Administrator at Peru Community Schools. "This lets us set multiple allow or deny rules and have users with multiple policies, and still maintain complete accuracy of the outcome. We view these enhancements as proof that the best just got even better."
