Secure Remote Access

Dell™ SonicWALL™ Secure Remote Access (SRA) appliances provide small- to medium-sized businesses with affordable, policy-enforced mobile and remote SSL-VPN access to their corporate resources without compromising security. With the intuitive Mobile Connect app or a standard web browser, your mobile workforce can easily and securely access allowed email, files, intranets, applications, remote desktops, servers and other mission-critical resources Context-aware authentication ensures only authorized users and trusted devices gain access, and protects you from rogue access and mobile malware. Dell SonicWALL SRA Series solutions are also simple to deploy and easy to manage because they integrate seamlessly into virtually any wired or wireless network topology, and central policy management enables efficient administration.

Secure access for managed and unmanaged devices.

Dell SonicWALL SRA Series solutions allow mobile and remote users to easily access corporate resources without requiring network administrators to compromise security. Administrators can create policies that provide context-aware authentication, granting access only to trusted devices and authorized users. Mobile devices are interrogated for essential security information such as jailbreak or root status, device ID, certificate status and OS versions prior to granting access. Laptops and PCs are also interrogated for the presence or absence of security software, client certificates, and device ID. Devices that do not meet policy requirements are not allowed network access and the user is notified of non-compliance.

Increase mobile productivity and protect corporate data.

Dell SonicWALL SRAs offer flexible solutions for mobile platforms. The Mobile Connect™ app provides simple, policy-enforced, network-level access for users of Apple® iOS , MacOSX, Google® Android™ , Kindle Fire and Windows 8.1 mobile devices. Users can securely access authorized intranet, file, desktop and terminal resources. Bookmarks allow access to applications such as Microsoft SharePoint®, and application offloading provides access to additional applications . Network-level access can be extended to corporate applications such as Microsoft® Outlook®, proprietary applications and servers. In addition, with the Mobile Connect app, authenticated users can securely browse and view allowed intranet file shares and files. Administrators can establish and enforce policy to control whether files accessed and viewed with the Mobile Connect app can be opened in other apps, copied to the clipboard, printed or cached securely within the Mobile Connect app. This allows administrators to isolate business data from personal data stored on the device and reduces the risk of data loss. If a user’s login credentials are revoked, user authentication will fail and content stored in the Mobile Connect app is locked and can no longer be accessed or viewed.

Simple, efficient access control policy management.

For system administrators, provisioning and managing is easy with centralized policy management. The SRA management console consolidates network access control of all web resources, file shares and client-server resources into a single location, with central administration and a single rule set for all resources and access methods. Unlike other access solutions, the SRA appliances allow system administrators to set role-based policies for end-users of mobile and laptop devices with a single rule across all objects. As a result, policy management takes minutes instead of hours. This reduces the complexity of managing multiple policy sets for the different access methods that SSL VPN provides. It also significantly decreases the time spent initiating setup and ongoing policy management.

Efficient to deploy and manage.

For user authentication, the SRA appliances easily integrate with most back-end authentication systems, such as LDAP, Active Directory and Radius, to extend preferred authentication practices to mobile workers. In addition, for increased security, organizations can enable one-time password generation and integrate with other two-factor authentication technologies. The SRA Series lowers administrative costs over traditional Virtual Private Network (VPN) solutions by decreasing the time it takes for initial installation and ongoing maintenance. By taking advantage of a solution that enables mobile app and browser-based secure access, there’s no need for administrators to touch every machine or even walk end users through the installation process. End users simply launch the mobile connect app or access the SRA web portal, authenticate, and click on the defined bookmarks or links for access to allowed corporate resources.

Redundancy and reliability.

To optimize performance and redundancy for server-based applications, network administrators can take advantage of load balancing features built into the SRA appliances. For increased reliability, High Availability allows administrators to deploy a second SRA 4600 as a backup to the primary to enhance uptime and reliability for all remote access users.

Enhanced security with Clean VPN.

Deploying an SRA appliance alongside a Dell SonicWALL next-generation firewall delivers the critical dual protection necessary to secure both VPN access and VPN traffic. The multi-layered protection of Dell SonicWALL Clean VPN™ enables organizations to decrypt and decontaminate all authorized SSL VPN traffic before it enters the network environment.

PCI compliance.

The optional Web Application Firewall (WAF) Service protects web applications against web-based vulnerabilities such as cross-site scripting, injection attacks, cross-site request forgery (CSRF) and cookie tampering. Data Leak Protection (DLP also prevents the theft of user sensitive data such as Social Security Numbers, and credit cards. By preventing common protocol and web-based attacks, WAF can significantly help financial, healthcare, e-commerce, e-billing and other related businesses attain OWASP Top 10 and PCI compliance.

Remote support and access.

As a cost-effective alternate to traditional remote computer support and remote computer access tools, administrators can configure and license Dell SonicWALL Secure Virtual Assist and Secure Virtual Access. Secure Virtual Assist pushes browser-based “thin” clients to technicians and customers to establish an interactive support session. Technicians can then remotely work with end users running Windows®, Mac® or Linux® operating systems. Secure Virtual Access can increase productivity by enabling administrators or authorized end users to gain secure remote access to their unattended Windows computers from almost anywhere.
