Part 1Introducing GMS Introduction to GMSSonicWall Global Management System 9.1 Getting Started GuideIntroducing GMS4

1Introduction to GMSSonicWall Global Management System (GMS) is a Web‐based application that can configure and managethousands of SonicWall firewall appliances and NetMonitor non‐SonicWall appliances from a central location.SonicWall GMS is: easy to install easy to configure easy to license easy to add devices to easy to monitor and manage your GMS instances using Intelligent Platform Monitor (IPM)GMS can be used as a Management Console in an Enterprise network containing a single SonicWall appliance,and it can also be used as a Remote Management System for managing multiple unit deployments for Enterpriseand Service Provider networks consisting of hundreds and thousands of firewalls, Email Security appliances, andSecure Mobile Access (SMA) appliances. This dramatically lowers the cost of managing a secure distributednetwork. GMS does this by enabling administrators to monitor the status of and apply configurations to allmanaged SonicWall appliances, groups of SonicWall appliances, or individual SonicWall appliances. GMS alsoprovides centralized management of scheduling and pushing firmware updates to multiple appliances and toapply configuration backups of appliances at regular intervals.GMS provides monitoring features that enable you to view the current status of SonicWall appliances andnon‐SonicWall appliances, pending tasks, and log messages. It also provides graphical reporting of firewall, SMA,and Email Security (ES) appliance and network activities for the SonicWall appliances. A wide range ofinformative real‐time and historical reports can be generated to provide insight into usage trends and securityevents.Network administrators can also configure multiple site VPNs for SonicWall appliances. From the GMS userinterface, you can add VPN licenses to SonicWall appliances, configure VPN settings, and enable or disableremote‐client access for each network.SonicWall Global Management System 9.1 Getting Started GuideIntroduction to GMS5
