How Dell and SonicWall’s SMA and Next-Generation Firewall solution builds secure virtual bridges for today’s fragmented environments

As employees are no longer restricted to the physical structures of their company headquarters, what and how they connect to their corporate network presents a multitude of challenges. Corporate IT environments consist of a seemingly uncontrollable combination of devices, operating systems, and geographic locations. Securely connecting all of these is one of the most crucial IT initiatives companies are faced with as Gartner reports that 70% of mobile professionals will conduct their work on personal smart devices by 2018.

As we are all well aware, all endpoints pose significant threats to network security. Specifically, BYOD consumer devices are usually the most difficult to manage and secure. Data loss or leakage and unauthorized access or transmission are a constant concern. Mobile devices can also retain sensitive or proprietary data while wirelessly connected to the corporate network. White-listing apps for distribution on IOS and Android platforms help lock down mobile devices, but unmanaged laptops require greater endpoint control via the VPN.

What can you do to protect it all?

Dell and SonicWall’s VPN and Next-Generation Firewall solution delivers a layered defense strategy to ensure employees have the access they need while providing the security the company requires.

Components of a VPN and Next-Generation Firewall Solution:

  • Secure Mobile Access (SMA) Appliances – Provide mobility and secure access for up to 20,000 concurrent users from a single, powerful, and granular access control engine.
  • Next-Generation Firewalls – Network security, control, and visibility through sandboxing, SSL inspection, intrusion prevention, anti-malware, application identification, and content filtering.
  • Remote Access Management & Reporting – Powerful, web-based remote IT management platform to streamline appliance management and provide extensive reporting.
  • VPN Clients/Mobile Connect – Simple, policy-enforced secure access to mission-critical applications and data for iOS, OS X, Android, Chrome OS, Kindle Fire, and Windows mobile devices.

Deploying a SonicWall VPN and Next-Generation Firewall solution provides multi-layered protection that can authorize, decrypt, and remove threats from SSL VPN traffic before it enters the network environment. The dual protection of a SonicWall SMA and Next-Generation Firewall is critical to ensuring the security of both VPN access and traffic. SonicWall’s remote access management and reporting also allows organizations to view, define, and enforce how application and bandwidth assets are used.

Securely connecting your workforce, partners, and customers has never been more important. Reach out today to your Dell and SonicWall contacts today to learn what implementing a SonicWall VPN and Next-Generation Firewall solution can mean for the future of your company.
