SonicWall improves on its clean VPN
Dubai, February 25, 2009
Leading secure network infrastructure company SonicWall has announced further development of its Clean VPN technology with the release of SSL VPN remote access integrated into the unified threat management (UTM) platform.
SSL based Clean VPN integration delivers simplified and encrypted connectivity to remote network users while revolutionising protection by inspecting these same connections for intrusions, malware and misuse.
Businesses today face increasingly distributed workforces, driving the need to provide secure network access to employees, contractors, customers, and partners. The new challenge for network administrators is supporting simplified anytime, anywhere access from endpoints that may not be completely secure.
“SonicWall’s integrated SSL based Clean VPN technology offers our customers’ a breakthrough in simplicity and protection for secure remote access,” said Shahnawaz Sheikh, SonicWall’s regional sales manager for MEA.
“Organisations want traveling employees and contractors to have fast and immediate network access but may not know these connections have the highest risk of spreading network threats. SonicWall’s SSL VPN feature-set, allows companies to have simplified and efficient network access without increasing their security risks,” he added.
SonicWall’s Clean VPN technology simplifies remote access by connecting users with a browser based SSL VPN connection without requiring a pre-installed client. This vastly improves the deployment time and comprehensively protects both employees and companies by cleaning connections of malware and harmful threats.
This technology uses an advanced and high-performance deep packet inspection engine that can find malicious content that may have been contracted while on the road, through network misuse or through the use of unsecured networks. – TradeArabia News Service
