SonicWALL, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNWL), today announced it will launch a new range of SSL-VPN solutions to make network access for remote users easy and affordable to small and medium businesses (SMB). The SSL-VPN 200 and SSL-VPN 2000 appliances interoperate seamlessly behind third party firewalls and deliver enhanced Unified Threat Management (UTM) protection in conjunction with firewalls from SonicWALL, named worldwide market share leader in UTM technology in IDCs latest tracker report*.
With SonicWALL SSL-VPN appliances, secure access for remote and mobile users becomes remarkably simple. Remote users require only a standard Internet browser to launch a personalized Web portal, from which the user can access e-mail, files, applications and internal company Web sites.
What todays businesses need is a full spectrum of affordable solutions that deliver secure, clientless and easy-to-use remote access from anywhere while minimizing maintenance and support costs, said Matthew Medeiros, president and chief executive officer at SonicWALL. We have centred this new product line on ease-of-use and affordability with the needs of SMBs in mind. The new SSL-VPN products complement our existing IPSec VPN solutions and provide our entire channel partner base with an extended range of options supporting our UTM capabilities.
With this new product set, SonicWALL now offers a full spectrum of secure networking solutions including high-security IPSec-based VPN products. The SSL-VPN products complement SonicWALLs PRO and TZ product lines and represent a further extension of SonicWALLs appliance range, initiated with the launch of the Content Security Manager 2100 CF.
Ease of use features including an intuitive graphical interface and getting started guide make SonicWALLs SSL-VPN appliances simple for network administrators to deploy and manage. The solution also provides the capability for granular policy configuration to give the administrator complete control over individual users access to specific network resources.
