November 19, 2018 / Sean Michael Kerner
SonicWall is adding multiple new features to its product portfolio, in a bid to help organizations further secure their on-premises and hybrid cloud assets against threats. Among the new features coming to SonicWall's Capture Cloud Platform are zero-touch deployment options and software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) security features. The Capture Security Center is also being enhanced with new risk metrics to help organizations better manage risk. Additionally, SonicWall announced a pair of new unified threat management (UTM) firewalls that include integrated Power over Ethernet (PoE). "SonicWall is releasing SD-WAN security features as part of SonicOS 6.5.3, the latest release of our firewall operating system," Lawrence Pingree, executive vice president of product management at SonicWall, told eWEEK. "It offers our customers the ability to use SD-WAN without requiring any third-party SD-WAN hardware on-premises."
