SonicWall Firewall Sandwich Patch
Today I’d like to talk a little bit about our partnership with Microsoft and patch management. In a previous life I was a network/sysadmin. A brief description of that role was “If it has a blinking light on it, I am responsible for it,” which meant on most days I felt like I was living in the middle of a sci-fi movie, surrounded by demanding technology.
What would happen if you gathered five days of newly discovered malware and unleashed it upon an end-point protected by SonicWall? I have been working with SonicWall firewalls for 10 years, and I was beta testing SonicWall Capture as part of my role here as an escalation engineer. Since we are big believers in drinking our own champagne, I was testing on my home network.
