Do you wake up in the middle of the night and wonder, where’s my smart phone, did I leave my laptop in the Uber? In my previous role as VP of Mobility at a top Fortune 500 financial company, like many CISOs, I tackled these issues of loss of intellectual property across my work, every day. Today, we have to cope not only with the misadventures of lost or stolen devices, but are increasingly threatened by malware and now the challenge of targeted attacks, which see mobility as the weakest link.
Advanced threats to mobile and remote users are real and ever evolving with more sophisticated evasive techniques. Weakly secured remote systems present a rich target for Trojans, key loggers or spear phishing attackers to harvest credentials for threat actors to walk right into the core of a company’s network in order to plant ransomware or exflitrate data for sale on the dark net. To compound these challenges a remote and mobile access service provides the foundation of any business continuity service, so it must be available 24/7, zero outage is not acceptable.
As a service owner, how do you sign up to such high SLA’s? How do you say “Yes” to mobile, yet lock down valuable resources across your mobile enterprise networks?
Today, SonicWall announces the launch of SonicWall Secure Mobile Access Series 1000 12.0 OS. The SMA 1000 Series delivers reliable service across different mobile platforms and enforces the “who, what, where and why” while protecting data from interception on unsecured public Wi-Fi networks.
