Capture Client 3.6 Launch Brings Key Features


We’re pleased to announce the SonicWall Capture Client 3.6 release, which offers our customers the addition of three key features.

First of all, it will allow users using MacOS to update their systems to Big Sur thanks to the new Kextless agent. It also includes some of the latest SentinelOne features via the addition of the SentinelOne 4.6 agent, which includes enhanced threat and device management, as well as a number of bug fixes. Furthermore, this release allows those who were previously on 3.1 to upgrade to the latest client and take advantage of the features that were initially offered for our MSSP customers in the 3.5 release.

For those of you who are not aware of the previously released 3.5 features, here’s a quick summary:

We’ve made some major improvements to the user experience by making multi-tenant management easier. Now you can quickly create, configure and enforce global policies and compliance based on user group, device and location. We’ve made it easier to create and deploy new tenants through the adoption of global baseline policies, while also offering the flexibility to build and deploy custom policies for specific tenants.

We added something we call Scope of Operations (or, simply put, “Scope”), which allows administrators to granularly pick their context of visibility and control. For example, you can immediately push agents out to all tenants or roll out in batches to better control field issues. You can also quickly add new security definitions to all tenants via the inheritance feature within global policies. The same would go for amending content filtering policies on the fly across all your tenants.

The features that are unlocked in 3.6 offer a better dashboard, enabling greater visibility into endpoint devices. The quick health snapshot offers a look at all tenants, displaying infections, vulnerabilities and active devices across one or multiple tenants. You can also view what content is accessed, what is blocked, and which web pages or users cause the most alerts.

This isn’t a comprehensive list of everything that went into the Capture Client 3.5 release — for more information, please read the blog.
