SonicWall Goes After Small-Biz Remote Users With SSL VPN Appliance

With its eye on market opportunities targeting small businesses and remote office workers, SonicWall recently launched a new SSL VPN appliance that is catching the interest of SMB-focused solution providers.

The new SSL VPN 200 appliance is designed for companies with up to 50 or fewer employees.

With support for 10 concurrent tunnels and a price of $595, it should be an attractive option for small companies that don’t have huge IT budgets, said Deepak Thadani, president of New York-based solution provider SysIntegrators.

“Most of our customers have less than 20 employees and would be more interested in this than a larger box that costs more,” Thadani said.

The new product is SonicWall’s first SSL VPN appliance to target the low end of the SMB market. Its SSL VPN 2000, launched in September, targets networks with fewer than 1,000 users, supports up to 100 concurrent tunnels and costs $2,295.
