Capture Cloud Platform: A Security Ecosystem that Harnesses the Power of the Cloud

We have fantastic advancements in technologies right now. With software-defined everything (SDx) and cloud becoming more accessible and affordable, both large and small organizations can effectively execute their digital business strategies with greater ease and speed.

As new applications, systems and SDx architecture are deployed to advance the digital business, many organizations also find themselves retooling their cyber security model to maintain the health and defense of their networks and services.

Organizations now must have complete knowledge, visibility and control of the security ecosystem, and the capacity to manage and remove cyber risks that can be disruptive and disastrous to the business.

To help make the cloud journey powerful, agile and safe, SonicWall developed its Capture Cloud Platform to address CISOs’ top three cyber security priorities:

  1. Give actionable cyber threat intelligence to help better understand security risks and quickly respond to them
  2. Reduce security silos by consolidating and integrating security technologies
  3. Manage cyber risk with greater visibility and control

Integrated Security, Management & Analytics

The core value of the Capture Cloud Platform is the integration of several key capabilities with our cloud-based centralized management, reporting and analytics services, including the Capture Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) sandbox, which includes Real-Time Deep Memory Inspection (RTDMITM) technologies, and Capture Labs and Capture Threat Network threat intelligence services.

This all-in-one approach enables our complete portfolio of high-performance hardware, virtual appliances and clients to harness the power, agility and scalability of the cloud and allows organizations to:

  • Drive end-to-end visibility and share intelligence across a unified security framework
  • Proactively protect against known and unknown cyberattacks (e.g., zero days)
  • Gain contextual awareness to detect and respond to security risks with greater speed and accuracy
  • Make informed security policy decisions based on real-time and consolidated threat information

SonicWall Capture Cloud Platform service-oriented architecture tightly unifies the current and future SonicWall security and management services organizations needs to run an efficient security operation center (SOC). It eases and, in most cases, automates the governance of their network, endpoints and cloud security services with single-pane-of-glass (SPOG) experience.
