Analytics and Reporting for Dell SonicWALL appliances
Do you really know what is running on your network at any one time? Are your employees spending too much time playing Farmville on Facebook or watching Grumpy Cat on YouTube? Is your internet slow and unresponsive due to bandwidth being taken up for non-essential work applications? Not sure who the culprit is? Well you need Analyzer.
Dell Analyzer streamlines and summarises web traffic and network data. This means near real-time analysis of incoming syslog messages, with immediate compliance and multi-threat reporting. The tool has been helping Open IP customers across the UK to monitor everything that passes through their system.
The main features of Analyser are:
- Real-time and historic traffic analysis.
Traffic analysis utilizing granular next-generation syslog data provides advanced troubleshooting capabilities to assist in identifying the location of network outages and slowdowns by surfacing what applications are used by what users and systems.
- Graphical Reports
Businesses gain increased visibility into suspicious network activity and employee productivity with comprehensive graphical reports on firewall bandwidth usage statistics, threats, and per user application traffic analysis.
- Next-generation syslog reporting
Revolutionary architecture enhancements streamline data summarization and allow for near real-time reporting of incoming syslog messages. Direct access to the underlying raw data further facilitates extensive granular capabilities and offers highly customizable reporting.
- SRA user reporting
Administrators gain valuable insight into user activity as well as appliance health and behaviour through Secure Remote Access (SRA) event reporting.
- CDP event reporting
Custom proprietary next-generation reporting provides a detailed view of Continuous Data Protection (CDP) appliance well-being and user agent statistics.
- Universal scheduled reports
With universal scheduled reports, administrators have a single entry point for all scheduled reports. Administrators can choose to generate a single report that combines charts and tables for multiple units. Reports can be scheduled and sent out in various formats to one or more email addresses.
- At-a-glance reporting
Customizable views illustrate multiple summary reports on a single page. Users can easily navigate through vital network metrics to analyse data quickly across a variety of reports.
- Compliance reporting
Administrators can generate reports that fulfil compliance requirements on an ad-hoc and scheduled basis to meet specific regulatory mandates.
- Multi-Threat Reporting
With the Gateway Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Intrusion Prevention, Application Intelligence and Control Service, businesses can collect information on thwarted attacks and receive instant access to threat activities detected by Dell SonicWALL firewalls.
- User-based reporting
Individual user activities are tracked locally or on remote network sites to provide even greater insight into traffic usage across the entire network and get a closer look at application usage, web sites visited, backup activity, and VPN connections per user.
- New attack intelligence
Granular reporting allows administrators to quickly react to incoming threats with new attack intelligence including types of attacks or intrusion attempts and the source address of the attacker.
- Flexible deployment options
Dell SonicWALL Analyzer can be deployed as either a Windows application or a Virtual Appliance. By deploying Dell SonicWALL Analyzer as a Virtual Appliance in a VMware environment, organizations can leverage shared computing resources to optimize utilization, ease migration and reduce capital costs.
