In a press release on the company’s website, SonicWALL announced SonicOS 5.8 for its Next-Generation Firewall product lines. The new release integrates a real-time application visualization dashboard and analysis tools which allows IT managers to visualize all application traffic and determine application bandwidth consumption. Productivity will be increased because administrators can immediately control and allocate resources for critical applications.
“‘With SonicOS 5.8, we can for the first time fully visualize application traffic on our network, including bandwidth utilization per user,’ said Erin Desko, chief technology officer at BGMX Retail Solutions, a provider of PCI-compliant IT services for grocery chains. ‘The visualization capabilities let us see where we’re wasting time and money, while at the same time keeping security front-and-center in our operations.'”
