SonicWall firewall security reports
To combat the increasing threat from application-driven attacks, security administrators need to closely scrutinize all gateways. Since firewalls protect against both network and application attacks, monitoring them can give insights into attack patterns.
Security administrators are expected to answer a few common but significant questions about their network:
- Which connections were denied entry?
- Which connections were denied entry based on protocol?
- What are the most critical security threats?
- What are the top network attacks based on severity?
EventLog Analyzer provides answers to all the above questions and helps detect various security attacks, like denial-of-service, SYN flood, routing table, back door attacks, and many other threats that can collapse the organization’s security system.
The SonicWall security reports are comprehensive and available in various formats and graphical representations. These reports help you gain insights on critical network activities, thereby preventing or mitigating security breaches.
There are two major sets of security reports: denied connections and attacks reports.
Firewall denied connections reports:
Investigating denied firewall connections is important because it reveals the malicious traffic trying to enter the network. With proper monitoring, repeated tries by the same IP address and other anomalies can be highlighted and addressed. These reports give an overview of all denied connections based on source, device, protocol, and port. Use denied connection trend reports to detect abnormalities instantly.
Denied Connections | Top Denied Connection based on Source | Top Denied Connection based on Destination | Top Denied Connection based on Protocol | Top Denied Connection based on Port | Denied Connection Trends
Firewall IDS/IPS reports:
Attack methodologies have evolved over time and become more sophisticated. Examining the attempts to exploit vulnerabilities helps administrators identify loopholes in their network. This lets them know where and how to secure their network better. Firewall attack reports track possible and critical attacks based on source, destination, and severity, along with attack trends.
Possible Attacks | Critical Attacks | Top Attack based on Source | Top Attack based on Destination | Top Attack based on Severity | Attacks Trend
