Dell SonicWALL, Inc. Key Developments

SonicWALL Releases SonicOS 6.2.6

With the general availability of SonicOS 6.2.6 firmware announced on July 27, 2016, SonicWALL Capture the first multi-engine sandbox that enables customers to block suspicious files until a verdict is reached. Additionally, SonicOS 6.2.6 features an enhanced Content Filtering Service that gives organizations the power to easily enforce protection and productivity policies to control access to inappropriate or unproductive web content. Available for use with SonicWALL TZ, NSA and SuperMassive 9000 series firewalls, SonicOS 6.2.6 with SonicWALL Capture protects customers from today’s most advanced threats, including zero-day attacks. Malicious code authors have developed techniques allowing malware to detect the presence of existing sandboxes and use this information to evade detection. To combat these techniques, SonicWALL Capture utilizes three technically different cloud-based threat analysis sandboxing engines, making evasion almost impossible. Capture also has the ability to accept the broadest range of file sizes and types and can be configured to block suspicious files from entering the system until a verdict is reached. The new SonicWALL Content Filtering Service 4.0 available in SonicOS 6.2.6 enables IT to enforce protection and productivity policies and block inappropriate, unproductive and illegal web content from the network. Key new features in this version include: Block-page override, Bandwidth Management and Confirm actions ' In addition to the current allow and block methods, CFS 4.0 also offers block-page override (passphrase), bandwidth management, and confirm actions, giving administrators additional controls to individual domain categories. These five methods are configurable at the policy level (versus a global setting). YouTube Restricted mode ' Similar to parental controls, YouTube Restricted mode helps inhibit the search for, or access to, inappropriate videos based on YouTube’s proprietary technology. SonicWALL SonicOS 6.2.6 will be generally available August 1. SonicWALL Capture ATP Service will be available for SonicWALL SuperMassive 9000 series, NSA firewalls and select TZ firewall models August 1.
