SWARM Reports with SonicWall

On June 14th, we held our June Advantage Lunch at Edgewood Country Club. We invited our friends from SonicWall to talk about SWARM reports.

A SWARM report is an assessment that helps customers identify real-time vulnerabilities and network threats. Each SWARM report is easy to navigate and features a Security Index score based on current network activity and any security threats that have been identified by SonicWall’s next-generation firewalls. SWARM reports help customers prevent any cyber threat surprises.

We had a high turnout and offered a free SWARM report to everyone in attendance. However, we also streamed the presentation on Facebook Live and wanted to make sure our online audience gets the same offer! Below you'll find the video available for watching on-demand. If the report looks like something, your business could benefit from (and trust me, it is), this free SWARM report offer extends to you! So go ahead and sign up for a free SWARM report now.

Larry Light with Dell EMC started things off with a recap of the state of Dell Technologies since the merger with EMC.

After the quick introduction, Tim Barrett and Rohan Kamat with SonicWall dove into the cybersecurity landscape. Thir presentation started with a real-time view of cyber attacks happening in the world and went into a discussion on the number of devices that are connected today. Every connected device is a potential point of attack, and with computers, phones, and tablets, people have many devices today.

Tim and Rohan go on to explain many of the features of SonicWall's threat breach detection and prevention technology. Then they perform some live demos that illustrate how many third-party websites are involved in ordinary, everyday news sources.

For the remainder of the presentation, Tim and Rohan take a deep dive into a SWARM report. The SWARM report takes about seven days and involves the installation of a SonicWall device on your network. Data is gathered, and an executive report is generated to give you an idea of what kind of traffic is actually on your network.
