The Aventail E-Class SRA Platform Aventail Connect
Dell SonicWALL Aventail Connect™ provides users of IT-managed Windows, Macintosh and Linux devices with unmatched ease-of-use and a complete "in-office" experience. Aventail Connect delivers the easiest, most complete method of secure remote access available and is ideal for providing strong security for wireless LAN users and mobile employees who need full access away from the office.
"In-office" experience from any location.
Connect provides remote users of IT-managed devices with full access to key business applications—including back-connect applications such as VoIP soft phones and remote help desk—as if they were in the office. Dell™ SonicWALL™ Aventail® Smart Access™ technology automatically determines and deploys the right remote access method for the corporate resources that they need, based on policy. Connect also supports single sign-on, network auto-discovery and integration with third-party dialers.
Easy administration with robust control.
The lightweight Connect client can be pre-installed on an IT-managed device, or downloaded from a Web portal. Administrators can update new versions and configuration changes easily and automatically without further intervention. Connect integrates directly with Dell™ SonicWALL™ Aventail® Unified Policy™ and Dell™ SonicWALL™ Aventail® End Point Control™ (EPC™) for centralized control of all users, groups, resources and devices. Additionally, split tunnel control enables IT to control a user's ability to log on to multiple networks while on the VPN. In addition, features such as NAT traversal, proxy detection, and traversal and mitigation of address conflicts ensure universal application access.
Secure access to VoIP and remote help desk.
Connect supports for UDP, TCP and IP protocols, as well as granular bidirectional access control for any applications, including back-connect applications like VoIP and remote help desk. Connect can interrogate a VoIP device and authenticate the user before connection, preventing the threat of malware attacks. With Connect, you get the granular access control, split-tunneling capability and NAT and firewall traversal you need to provide users with truly secure everywhere access. In addition, its adaptive addressing and routing dynamically adapts to networks, eliminating addressing and routing conflicts common with other solutions.
Tunnel agent Web policy and SSO configuration.
Administrators can define Web policy for Dell SonicWALL Aventail Smart Tunneling agents (Dell SonicWALL Aventail Connect Tunnel and Dell SonicWALL Aventail OnDemand Tunnel) as well as the Dell SonicWALL Aventail WorkPlace portal, providing more granular access control options for the tunnel agents, as well as consistent policy enforcement across all access options.
iPhone, iPad and Android support.
SonicWALL® Mobile Connect™, a single unified client app for Apple® iOS and Google® Android™, provides smartphone and tablet users superior network-level access to corporate and academic resources over encrypted SSL VPN connections. For owners of Windows Mobile devices, Dell SonicWALL Aventail Connect Mobile is a light-weight, easy-to-use client that provides an “in-office” remote access experience specially optimized for the device. The Dell SonicWALL Aventail Secure Remote Access (SRA) Series also features clientless Microsoft ActiveSync support for Apple iPhone®, iPad™ and Android® devices through the SRA appliance. ActiveSync support allows an administrator to securely access email, contacts and calendar functions through the SSL VPN, without having to expose an Exchange® server at the edge of the network. ActiveSync features the ability to require users to authenticate through the SSL VPN (username/password), as well as require device identification against information stored in the user’s Active Directory or LDAP account.
Application-to-application Connect Service Edition.
The Dell SonicWALL Aventail Connect Service Edition offers policy-driven application-to-application access, perfect for branch office applications that need dedicated or scheduled connections without human intervention.
