SonicWall firewall security policies and rules management
Adding sophisticated firewall policies and rules from time to time helps you keep pace with evolving security trends. But not keeping an eye on unused and redundant rules and policies adds unnecessary complexities. In addition to being a security best practice, identifying and removing obsolete rules and policies from the network is an important requirement that conforms to many compliance regulatory standards.
EventLog Analyzer offers reports for SonicWall firewalls that easily track and monitor rules and network policies. Administrators can create alert profiles to instantly receive notifications of any type. EventLog Analyzer's reports are exhaustive and available in multiple formats.
Rule management reports:
Disabled/enabled reports give a detailed view of all network rules that are fully in use, as well as those that have not been applied. Users can also view when a new rule is added, removed, restored or modified.
Rules Added | Rules Modified | Rules Deleted | Rules Restored
