SonicWall On-Premises Analytics provides different ways view to everything that is happening inside a network environment protected by SonicWall firewalls.
Two reporting options are offered:
Syslog is a message logging standard, allowing almost any device to send data about status, events diagnostics and more. Syslog messages have a built-in severity level. Analytics takes the data, sorts and aggregates it and then displays it. Many different types of reports are available for Syslog-based reporting.
For IPFIX-based reporting, flow information is collected from the network devices and processed by Analytics. At its core is a powerful, intelligence-driven engine that automates the aggregation, normalization, correlation and contextualization of security data flowing across all SonicWall firewalls and wireless access points. The applicationâ€™s interactive dashboard uses various forms of time-use charts and tables to create knowledge representation of the data models.
