SSL VPN Secure Remote Access Security Services Advanced End Point Control
Dell SonicWALL Aventail End Point Control™ (EPC™) lets you enforce granular access control rules for Windows®, Macintosh® and Linux® endpoint environments. As part of EPC enforcement via Mobile Connect for iOS and Android, a policy can be set up to determine if an iOS device has been jailbroken or an Android device rooted so that connections from those devices may be rejected or quarantined.
More flexible security control.
EPC lets you apply Dell SonicWALL Aventail Policy Zones™ of detected endpoint criteria to automated policy enforcement. Policy Zones commonly include zones for untrusted machines such as kiosks, semi-trusted machines such as home PCs and trusted corporate assets like laptops. IT can then manage those zones with a simple set of parameters. For example, EPC may quarantine a user's access—and automatically redirect the user to remediation instructions—until the user installs a particular security patch. Should an endpoint device be lost or stolen, Dell SonicWALL Aventail Device Watermarks allow rapid and simple access revocation, based upon detection of client certificates on the endpoint. Dell SonicWALL Aventail Virtual Keyboard can enforce user authentication at untrusted endpoints to protect against keystroke sniffers.
Advanced EPC for ultimate protection.
Optional Dell SonicWALL Aventail Advanced EPC™ combines the granular endpoint control detection of Dell SonicWALL Aventail Advanced Interrogator with the superior data protection of Dell SonicWALL Aventail Secure Desktop. Advanced Interrogator simplifies endpoint protection by allowing administrators to set up device profiles from a comprehensive predefined list of anti-virus, personal firewall and anti-spyware solutions for Windows platforms, including version and currency of signature file update. On unmanaged endpoint devices like kiosks, Dell SonicWALL Aventail Cache Control extends beyond basic cache cleaning to purge browser cache, session history, cookies and passwords. For even deeper protection, Secure Desktop offers advanced data.
Deliver everywhere access, ensure maximum security.
With EPC, you get the precision you need to reduce risk. EPC is the ability to enforce policy based on the level of trust that IT has for the user as well as his or her environment. With EPC, IT organizations can establish and define different Policy Zones to fit their needs.
EPC gives administrators the power to create highly granular access control rules that support today's broad range of access environments. Market-leading EPC increases security and flexibility using three essential components:
- Device Interrogation: EPC automatically interrogates the endpoint anytime a user accesses a Dell SonicWALL Aventail Secure Remote Access (SRA) solution. To ensure that the access point is free of malicious software, or malware, like keystroke loggers and Trojan horses before allowing access, the SRA solution automatically launches an agent from one of our best-of-breed client integrity partners such as WholeSecurity®, or Sygate®. This happens prior to authentication so that EPC can stop user login if it discovers any malware. Moreover, unlike the security precautions of other VPN solution providers, only EPC incorporates full cross-platform support, operating system detection and client integrity checks for truly secure everywhere access.
- Policy Zones: Device interrogation looks for certain applications or "watermarks" on the endpoint. For example, if a specified antivirus product or a personal firewall is present, Dell SonicWALL Aventail Device Interrogation may instantly classify the endpoint into one of the predetermined Dell SonicWALL Aventail Policy Zones—such as trusted, non-trusted, or semi-trusted. Each zone enables a different level of access, appropriate to its level of risk.
- Enhanced data protection and remediation: Dell SonicWALL Aventail Cache Control™ goes beyond basic cache cleaning to protect private data on unmanaged endpoints like airport kiosks by deleting browser cache, history, cookies and passwords from Windows, Macintosh and Linux machines. Dell SonicWALL Aventail solutions combine market-leading data protection features with Policy Zones to provide the most flexible remote access options available. Remediation efforts launch the appropriate tools to allow access with complete security.
Optional Advanced EPC.
Advanced EPC simplifies endpoint protection with a comprehensive checklist of antivirus, personal firewall and anti-spyware products for Windows that even verifies versions and signature file updates. Advanced EPC adds the encrypted virtual desktop functionality of Secure Desktop for the easiest, most robust remote access control on the market.
