Dell SonicWALL SMA 11.4 - a free upgrade for customers on support contracts - provides for secure mobile access regardless of the device used.
SMA simplifies the provisioning of secure access and role-based privileges to authorised remote workers, contractors, vendors and temps so they get fast, easy access to approved corporate asset resources to be productive.
In the light of proliferating mobile malware, especially ransomware, SMA includes technology to detect malware-infected and fake apps. This is particularly important where BYOD policies mean the organisation has no direct control over the management of endpoints, and where non-employees must be given access to corporate resources.
Other improvements include Global Traffic Optimizer (simplifies the provision of secure access to users from anywhere in the world), compliance with FIPS and other regulations, a management API (allows for orchestration and automation, and enhanced support for SAML 2.0 (including single sign-on for SaaS applications).
"With so many mobile devices being brought into the workplace by a growing remote workforce, both employer-issued and personally owned, data and applications are intermingling and putting organisations at an increased risk of a serious security breach," said Dell Security vice president of product management and marketing Patrick Sweeney.
"The Dell SonicWall Secure Mobile Access portfolio addresses the need for organisations to quickly minimise the window of exposure for remote and mobile workers before an attacker can potentially cripple the organisation by gaining access to corporate data either in-flight or on the mobile device itself.
"Dell SonicWall SMA 11.4 provides our customers with completely secure mobile access to any data type, through any device, to any authorised users as dictated by their IT administrators."
