SonicWALL has announced two new remote access SSL VPN security solutions that the company claims are designed to help companies of all sizes easily administer and monitor employee access to information behind the firewall. As noted in the
company's news release, the SonicWALL Aventail 10.5 is a major software upgrade to existing enterprise class solutions, while the SonicWALL SRA 1200 is a new appliance tailored to SMB customers.
“SonicWALL’s Aventail 10.5 release brings new enterprise features to the E-Class SRA series of clientless SSL VPN solutions. The solution provides secure access to corporate resources and supports thousands of concurrent users from a single appliance. The SonicWALL Aventail solution ties the unique mobile device ID to a specific user, confirms the user’s identity and verifies the security status of the end-point. Once these security checks have been passed, the SonicWALL Aventail solution grants the appropriate level of access from any web-enabled device, including Internet kiosks, laptops, smart phones, tablet PCs or any other web enabled device. New features include Active Sync support for the Apple iPhone, iPad, Google Android and Symbian mobile devices and provides secure e-mail, contacts and calendar update synchronization with the corporate exchange server.”
