Application Intelligence and ControlSonicWall Application Intelligence and Control puts power back into the hands of IT administrators with new levels of management and ease-of-use, allowing them to maintain granular control of applications and users. Administrators can easily create bandwidth management policies based on logical pre-defined categories (such as social media or gaming), individual applications, or even users and groups. As new applications are created, new signatures are pushed to the firewalls and the appropriate policies are automatically updated without IT spending costly time and effort to update rules and application objects. Administrators must also be able to visualize application traffic to properly control network use and to adjust network policy based on critical observations. The SonicWall Application Flow Monitor provides real-time graphs of application activity allowing administrators to modify policies to increase network productivity. Application intelligence and control is available along with SonicWall Gateway Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware and Intrusion Prevention as a one, two or three year subscription, or is included in SonicWall Comprehensive Gateway Security Suite subscriptions for the TZ 210, NSA and E-Class NSA Series firewalls.PDF, 1.59MB, 3 pages
