Pocket GVC, the first SonicWALL software product for handheld devices, provides users running Microsoft Pocket PC 2003 with secure, encrypted wireless access to corporate networks or the Internet. Pocket GVC is a sister product to SonicWALLs Global VPN Client for PCs and laptops, launched earlier this year. Pocket GVC supports WAN, PPP and GPRS adapters, and is fully compatible with SonicWALLs full line of wired and wireless security appliances, including SonicPoint access points and the SOHO TZW.
"As wireless data communication becomes more widespread, mobile devices are increasingly seen as potential security threats," said Keith Nissen, senior analyst at In-Stat/MDR. "Mobile security solutions like SonicWALL's Pocket GVC enable organizations to protect internal assets by extending the corporate network security to mobile users, all while taking advantage of the productivity, cost and customer service gains that mobility offers."
SonicWALLs Pocket GVC is a standalone application for Microsoft Pocket PC 2003. Features include a customized user interface with log viewer, pop-up notification of VPN tunnel status, support for NAT-03, and virtual adapter support for controlled access to internal network resources.
