Security solutions provider SonicWall has unveiled new enhancements to its Secure Mobile Access (SMA) solution offering even greater security to customers in an ever-growing world of everywhere access and BYOD.
The new SonicWall SMA 1000 Series OS 12.0 features policy enforced SSL VPN to mission critical applications, data, and resources from all operating systems and mobile devices. Administrators have the ability to configure security policies that provide context-aware authorization which grants variable levels of access to data to trusted users dependent on the health metrics of their connecting devices and location.
“The exponential growth of BYOD and the increased need for remote access have driven a new requirement for security with high availability to business wireless and mobile networks,” says Bill Conner, president and CEO, SonicWall. “Increasingly, the complexity of connecting any mobile device with data of all types has also hindered the ability of businesses to securely expand their access. SonicWall Secure Mobile Access provides customers and partners with highly reliable access security without the risk and complexity of moving to the cloud.”
According to the company, the news features of the SonicWall SMA 1000 Series OS 12.0 include:
- Global High Availability offers a turnkey approach to delivering remote and includes the Global Traffic Optimizer for traffic load balancing with zero-impact failover. It also provides real-time monitoring across environment performance and user sessions.
