SonicWALL Brings Web Application Firewall Service To SMB Market

SAN JOSE, Calif., May 4. SonicWALL, Inc., a leading secure network infrastructure company, today announced its SonicWALL SSL VPN 4.0 firmware release, bringing key new features to small- to mid-sized businesses (SMBs), including Web Application Firewall, Virtual Assist and simplified unified policy. SonicWALL remains committed to bringing sophisticated security capabilities to SMBs, and doing so within their budgets. The release of SonicWALL's 4.0 firmware update enhances the SonicWALL SSL VPN product line, providing users with easy-to-use, flexible and innovative technology that provides secure corporate network access for distributed workforces.

Companies of all sizes need to provide secure network access to employees, customers and partners, no matter where the parties are located. This need is exacerbated by the proliferation of Web-based applications, as the Internet's role as a critical platform for businesses and consumers has also made it a new threat vector of choice - and Web-based attacks are rising at an alarming rate. Designed to enable controlled network access for a distributed workforce, SonicWALL SSL VPN 4.0 is a cost-effective solution providing ease-of-management, and its Web Application Firewall detects and protects Web applications - including the SSL VPN appliance itself - from the latest Web-based attacks. In addition to helping to secure the corporate network, SonicWALL's SSL VPN 4.0 firmware upgrade also helps organizations benefit from the elimination of deployment and ongoing maintenance costs.

"Over the past four years SonicWALL has provided industry-leading SSL VPN remote access solutions to organizations of all sizes, allowing SMBs to enjoy the same features and capabilities as larger enterprises," said Matthew Dieckman, Product Line Manager at SonicWALL. "SonicWALL's new SSL VPN 4.0 is a milestone release that captures the benefits of our latest SSL VPN platforms and sets the stage for innovation in secure remote access for years to come. Our SSL VPN technology now provides SMBs with optimal control, flexibility and functionality at a price point that doesn't compromise their budgets."
