SonicWall SRA 4600 Gives Remote Users Secure Access to Corporate Networks
Companies that need to enable up to 500 remote workers to log into their corporate networks should take a close look at Dell's SonicWall SRA 4600 remote-access appliance. The SRA 4600 combines support for Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connections with the ability to deliver extended desktops to remote workers via terminal services or other remote desktop systems, such as Citrix and VMware. Easy deployment and administration make the SRA 4600 a sensible choice for midsized enterprises that need to support a mobile and remote work force while providing a high level of protection to corporate applications. Other features, such as easy-to-extend licensing and support for high network availability, make the appliance flexible for rapidly growing or seasonally-driven IT environments. The appliance's NetExtender thin-client VPN makes it simple to expand services, such as SharePoint, Outlook and server-based applications, beyond the edge of the network to remote users. Other notable capabilities include support for multiple platforms, such as Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, iOS, Android and other operating systems. Unified security management, one-time passwords, Web application firewall services and granular controls round out the security offerings of the appliance. Meanwhile, remote assistance, customized Web portals and single-sign-on capabilities enhance the end-user experience.
