SonicWall Network Security Manager

What is SonicWall Network Security Manager?

SonicWall Network Security Manager (NSM) orchestrates firewall operations and manages threats and risks across your firewall ecosystem. 

Why Should You Use the SonicWall Network Security Manager Connector?

The SonicWall Network Security Manager connector provides visibility into the users and assets in your environment. You can use this visibility to:

  • ensure assets are managed per your security policies

  • ensure user are managed per your security policies

  • derive relationships between assets, users, applications, and data

How Does This Connector Work?

Lucidum executes read-only requests to the SonicWall Network Security Manager REST API and ingests only meta-data about SonicWall Network Security Manager devices. Lucidum does not retrieve any data stored on your assets.
