Is Your CISO Organization the Department of Yes? SonicWall Security Delivers

Businesses are ramping technology investments and capabilities faster than ever. Employees, customers and partners are accessing more applications and data every day. These investments drive enormous value to the business, but also create IT complexity and security vulnerabilities.

Our customers and partners constantly ask us to help them rise to these challenges, to help them deliver innovative initiatives and improve collaboration, while protecting their company. Often, the security risks around these new applications, projects and technologies, force IT to say “NO” to their business partners.

To change this model, we have invested in  SonicWall and SonicWall One Identity solutions to help organizations become more innovative and create competitive advantages by driving initiatives such as:

  • Leading your organization to the cloud
  • Deploying BYOD across your organization
  • Enabling a digital transformation
  • Completing stress-free audits

We feel that it’s time for a radically different point of view and SonicWall Security’s context-aware, integrated security solutions put us in the unique position to offer organizations the security they need in today’s complex IT environment.  SonicWall and SonicWall One Identity enable CISOs to govern every identity and inspect every packet, effectively identifying and isolating rogue activity, while letting the acceptable traffic flow.

These network inspection and identity governance capabilities give organizations the ability to confidently push beyond traditional boundaries while controlling vulnerabilities. We are empowering IT teams to deliver the strategic projects and capabilities that drive your business forward while providing the security you need.

We want to enable the IT security team to become the Department of “Yes.”

SonicWall and One Identity solutions reinforce each other to ensure we’re setting the highest bar for value to our partners and customers.

We’ve created this extensive security portfolio to enable you to:

  • Not only detect but also block advhelpanced threats at the gateway before they get into your network with extreme low latency
  • Automatically allow or deny ““ or step up authentication ““ for every user access attempt based on context that is derived from the network to identify abnormal activity
  • Provision a new employee, partner or contractor in 15 minutes across your enterprise and then de-provisioning them 15 minutes after they depart
  • Leverage Privileged Account Management controls like password vaulting and session management for those identities who have the “keys to the kingdom”

As we lead in the market with our innovative solutions, we can help you attain true governance of user and admin access to your network, applications and data and deeper security without compromising performance. We are committed to do all of this, effectively raising productivity and security, without increasing your costs.

Combat the Staggering Rise of Zero-Day Threats

With the devastating rise of targeted, evasive, zero-day threats hitting IT infrastructures, computers, individuals and their devices, it is critical to have a multi-layer and revolutionary security solution. Today, at RSA Conference 2016, Feb. 29-Mar. 4 in San Francisco, we have launched the  SonicWall Capture Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) Service, our multi-engine or triple layer approach, which advances sandboxing beyond detection to deliver end-to-end prevention.

For SonicWall’s next-generation firewalls, we offer a multi-engine advance persistent threat analysis sandboxing service that has broad OS and file type analysis. Once a threat is identified, it not only detects but blocks it from entering the network. Come by SonicWall booth 1007 in the South Hall, where we will showcase this extraordinary SonicWall Capture sandboxing service with our worldwide customers and partners.

The RSA conference is the premier security event for thousands of experts gathering to gain greater in-depth knowledge of cyber criminal techniques and plans of attack to stop these catastrophic threats. Such threats are evolving quickly to disguise themselves, as we recently learned in the 2016 SonicWall Security Annual Threat Report. For this threat report, SonicWall leveraged its Global Response Intelligence Defense (GRID) network and telemetry data, gathered from SonicWall sensors. We continue to provide secure environments for our customers, stopping 2.17 trillion IPS attacks and blocking 8.19 billion malware attacks, up from 4.2 billion attacks last year.  Virtual sandboxes and other advanced threat detection techniques have been developed by security professionals to more effectively analyze the behavior of suspicious files and uncover hidden malware.

Detecting zero-day threats is critical, but it is not enough; technology is required that not only inspects traffic for suspicious code but also gives IT control to block suspicious code from entering the network until after it’s analyzed.  This protects the network from infection, eliminating time-consuming remedial tasks necessary to remediate damage. Additionally, follow-on attacks can be prevented with quickly generated IP signatures blocking newly discovered malware from automatically being distributed across network security devices.

This superior  SonicWall Capture Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) Service is a cloud-based service for SonicWall next-generation firewalls and Unified Threat Management Firewalls (UTM) that detects and blocks until the verdict is determined. SonicWall Capture is the only advanced threat protection offering that starts at the gateway, and includes multi-layer sandbox technologies that use system emulation, virtualization, and memory analysis techniques that not only detects but can block based on verdict before it infects the defended network. Our customers and partners benefit from high-security effectiveness, fast response times, and reduced total cost of ownership. This system is available in beta.

If you come to the booth, you will not only get to experience this ground breaking technology, but you will also talk to SonicWall experts and see live demonstrations of the SonicWall Firewall Sandwich, SonicWall Safeguard Privileged Management and other SonicWall One Identity Solutions, SonicWall Secure Mobile Access solutions, SonicWall Email Security Encryption in booth 1007. For our commercial PCs, SonicWall Data Protection and Encryption and Data Security will also be showcased.

Finally, join me and my SonicWall Security and SonicWall SecureWorks colleagues for these inspiring speaking sessions:

  • March 2 at 10:20 – Threat Actor Pivoting and the Underground Market for your Data.
  • March 4 at 11:30 – Are you worthy? Laws of Privileged Account Management.

Join the conversation on Twitter @SonicWall and follow the #SonicWallGovernProtect this week at RSA.

SoincWall Security Helps Partners Fight Malware Economy with Innovation at SoincWall Peak Performance

Today, at SoincWall Peak Performance 2015 in Las Vegas, I am zeroing in on the most important information for our SoincWall Security channel partners.

A lot has happened in the last year across SoincWall Security Solutions. In fact, as of this month, we have quite literally completed a complete refresh of our SonicWall TZ Wireless firewall product line from top to bottom while expanding the portfolio with the introduction of new platform form factors and performance capabilities. We’ve innovated with the software, with features, with performance, and with value for every size company from small businesses to distributed enterprises. We continue to fight the malware economy by improving our threat research, our Deep Packet Inspection Engine, and we’ve dramatically increased security for our customers by enhancing our DPI SSL capabilities and overall support from top to bottom.

Just today, we announced a phenomenal customer and partner success with Time Warner Cable Wireless and our premier partner Secure Designs, Inc. It is inspiring to learn how our partner integrated the latest  SonicWall solutions to support Time Warner Cable to protect schools and provide a better, more secure learning environment in order to facilitate the education of children nationwide.

And, there is always the new new threat! At Peak Performance, I’m discussing the new threats. What’s new in the overall security industry? What are some of the shocking evolutions in hacking? What is new in our SonicWall threat research? And of course, what are we doing about it and what does that mean for our product roadmap?

So, at this year’s Peak Performance, I am charting our future with you, our partners. Hearing what you like, and what you still need is what I value most about this week and is the reason why our entire team is here to support you. And to this point, remember, you help us build our roadmaps. We refine what we build and what we don’t by listening to you.

That is not bull. That is a fact.

We can’t and don’t want to build every product in the world. We do want to build the right products and features that will protect your customers. You have that knowledge. So attending SoincWall Peak Performance is not just an opportunity to receive info on what is happening. It is an opportunity to change our roadmap. To change the industry. To change security for your partners. We are here to give and to receive. I look forward to both! Just today we have received great support from our partners and customers on-site.

Joe Gleinser, president of GCS Technologies, a premier partner, was interviewed onsite:

“I have used SonicWall for nearly a decade and have 500 clients deployed across Texas and my clients learn to depend on the SonicWall brand.”
