In a recent news release on PR Newswire.com, it was announced that SonicWALL has added two new secure wireless access points to its series to meet the needs of enterprises, distributed wireless networks, and SMBs. Using the new wireless access points with SonicWALL’s Next-Generation Firewall feature will allow organizations to prioritize access to business applications and de-prioritize access to applications and sites that are not business related. The new solution will also offer enhanced security because it conducts scans for threats such as viruses, spyware, and network intrusions.
“‘Because SonicWALL’s new 802.11n compliant SonicPoints are completely integrated with our Next-Generation Firewall feature set, we’ve changed the landscape for small and large wireless deployments. For the first time ever, an IT manager can easily set complete policy on exactly how the wireless network will work, what applications should have priority access and which users should be granted the most rights and the least,’ said Patrick Sweeney, vice president of product management. ‘And since all that policy is part of the firewall, organizations can manage their wired and wireless network intelligently, and inexpensively.'”
