SonicWall Launches Aventail E-Class SRA Platform
Mobile Connect provides secure, full-featured, network-level SSL VPN access when using the company's Secure Remote Access.The proliferation of powerful smartphones and tablets poses a challenge for IT departments, such as providing secure remote access to network resources for a growing number of employees who use their own mobile devices for business purposes. With the introduction of the SonicWall E-Class SRA EX9000 running on the new SonicWall Aventail 10.6 architecture, SonicWall enables IT organizations to provide remote access for devices running Windows and Windows Mobile, Apple Mac OS and iOS, Google Android, and Linux. Through a single appliance, SonicWall delivers full-featured access and control with user-friendly, clientless and client Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) virtual private network (VPN) connectivity for up to 20,000 concurrent mobile users. Together, the SonicWall SRA EX9000 and Aventail 10.6 equip businesses with compliant connectivity to corporate networks from a large array of mobile and remote devices.
Leveraging the recently announced SonicWall Mobile Connect client app for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch and existing Aventail Connect client for Android smartphones and tablets provides both IT-managed and employee-owned devices SSL-encrypted access to network resources. Some vendors only offer limited Web-based portal access, while others piece together their solutions with a Cisco client, the company said.
