The SRA Platform SRA Seamless Integration
Regardless of whether you choose a Dell SonicWALL gateway appliance or a third-party firewall, remote access is as easy as can be. Because the SRA appliance operates separate from the firewall function, the Dell SonicWALL SRA Series is compatible with virtually any firewall on the market.
A choice of firewalls.
Most security professionals recommend an integrated approach to security, and that is why Dell SonicWALL—offering a full range of tools and appliances—is the best choice. However, the bottom line is important, and organizations should not have to replace appliances that are working well. That is the beauty of Dell SonicWALL SRA appliances, which work with just about any firewall on the market. An organization should not have to bear the expense of switching firewall platforms to take advantage of SRA technology. After all, one of the greatest advantages of SRA solutions is the ability to deploy unrestricted remote connections in multiple geographic locations, at low expense. However, regardless of the firewall used, Dell SonicWALL SRA appliances integrate seamlessly, allowing organizations to leverage existing environments without having to purchase additional hardware.

SRA solutions are capable of integrating seamlessly into any network topology, with virtually any third-party firewall. This capability makes it possible to continue taking advantage of your existing infrastructure, without having to buy additional hardware, or abandon equipment before its useful life is over. Of course, when deploying the SRA solutions with a third-party firewall, you will be limited by the scanning capabilities of that firewall.
SRA in a Dell SonicWALL environment.
Although you can use SRA solutions successfully in any environment, when you do deploy one with a Dell SonicWALL network security appliance, you naturally gain enhanced security benefits. Deploying an SRA solution alongside a Dell SonicWALL Network Security Appliance (NSA) or TZ appliance gives you access to superior Dell SonicWALL Next-Generation Firewall protection. The NSA or TZ appliances will seamlessly forward incoming HTTPS traffic to the SSL VPN appliance. Allowable traffic is then forwarded back to the NSA or TZ appliance, where it is then inspected for worms, viruses, Trojans, spyware, malicious mobile code and other threats, by the Dell SonicWALL Reassembly-free Deep Packet Inspection engine; and then instantly forwarded to the final network destination. In short, the SRA solution deployed with a NSA or TZ appliance allows you to "connect and protect"—gaining the greatest combination of easy remote connectivity, and protection against network threats.
