SonicWall Solutions for Distributed Networking
In a distributed business model, branch offices and POS locations extend a company's reach into key markets, but that communication link must be available 24x7 and be able to support the business' applications. SonicWall VPN solutions help companies establish centralized control over remote access points and provide the robust security and performance needed for business continuance.
SonicWall's distributed wireless solution
SonicWall's distributed wireless solution provides a cost-effective and secure solution, which integrates wireless with an enterprise-class firewall/VPN gateway. SonicWall's TZ wireless family scales to any size deployment, so you can build an entire wireless network from the ground up, or add a wireless component to an existing network. SonicPoints, which are distributed throughout the wireless network, establish secure wireless LAN connectivity. They are automatically configured, and centrally managed by a SonicWall TZ or NSa Series appliance.
Your distributed wireless SonicWall network will be just as secure as any wired network, with access to the same enterprise-class gateway security, including gateway anti-virus, anti-spyware, and intrusion prevention.
When your distributed workforce is out of reach of your wireless LAN however, you will want to turn to SonicWall's VPN solution, perfect for your remote workforce and traveling road warriors. Remote teleworking naturally causes concern on the part of the IT manager, who does not want to lose control. Fortunately, they don't have to. SonicWall's SSL VPN appliance establishes a secure teleworking remote framework which, when used with a sound security policy, ensures that the network is safe and secure from outside attack, and that each remote machine is properly configured with the latest security updates. The SonicWall TZ Series is ideal for the small, remote office or home teleworker—delivering superior security to the remote worker, and allowing for centralized management under a single management console.
Secure Content Management
With a distributed network that is highly dependent on the Internet for connectivity, there are naturally many challenges that exist. Viruses, phishing attacks and spyware, as well as other types of blended threats, can come from anywhere, and a remote workstation may be an unintended source of infection. Secure Content Management (SCM) extends throughout the entire distributed enterprise, controlling Internet access with highly accurate Web filtering, and protecting against the latest viral attacks.
