How Dell and SonicWall’s SMA and Next-Generation Firewall solution builds secure virtual bridges for today’s fragmented environments
As employees are no longer restricted to the physical structures of their company headquarters, what and how they connect to their corporate network presents a multitude of challenges. Corporate IT environments consist of a seemingly uncontrollable combination of devices, operating systems, and geographic locations. Securely connecting all of these is one of the most crucial IT initiatives companies are faced with as Gartner reports that 70% of mobile professionals will conduct their work on personal smart devices by 2018.
As we are all well aware, all endpoints pose significant threats to network security. Specifically, BYOD consumer devices are usually the most difficult to manage and secure. Data loss or leakage and unauthorized access or transmission are a constant concern. Mobile devices can also retain sensitive or proprietary data while wirelessly connected to the corporate network. White-listing apps for distribution on IOS and Android platforms help lock down mobile devices, but unmanaged laptops require greater endpoint control via the VPN.
Dell and SonicWall’s VPN and Next-Generation Firewall solution delivers a layered defense strategy to ensure employees have the access they need while providing the security the company requires.
