SonicWALL Mobile Connect
The SonicWALL™ Mobile Connect™ application, in combination with Dell SonicWALL Secure Remote Access or Next-gen firewall appliances, provides your users with safe, easy access to the data and resources they need to be productive from a range of mobile platforms, including iOS, OS X, Android, Kindle Fire and Windows 8.1, all while ensuring that your network is protected from mobile security threats. Dell™ SonicWALL is the only vendor to provide solutions that deliver full malware scanning of the SSL-encrypted traffic, application control, and jailbreak and root detection for mobile devices.
- Secure SSL VPN connection and granular, policy-enforced network access control to company resources
- Easy download and install for iOS, Mac OSX, Android and Kindle users; pre-embedded in the Windows 8.1 OS
- Context aware authentication ensures only authorized users and trusted mobile devices are granted access.
Ease of use
iOS, Mac OSX, Android and Kindle users can easily download and install the Mobile Connect app via the App Store, Google Play or the Amazon App Store. For Windows 8.1 mobile device users, Mobile Connect is embedded in the Windows 8.1 operating system, eliminating need to download and install another VPN client app.
Centralized policy management
IT can provision and manage mobile device access via Dell SonicWALL appliances, including control of all web resources, file shares, and client-server resources, through a single management interface. Unlike other VPN solutions, Dell SonicWALL SRA appliances allow you to quickly set role-based policy for mobile and laptop devices and users with a single rule across all objects.
Verification of both user and device
Users are granted access to the network only after they have been authenticated and their mobile device integrity has been verified. End Point Control can determine whether a device has been jailbroken or rooted, as well as whether a certificate is present or the OS version is current, and then reject or quarantine the connection as appropriate.
Easy access to appropriate resources
iOS, Mac OS X, Android, Kindle and Windows 8.1 mobile devices can connect to all allowed network resources, including web-based, client/server, virtual desktop and back-connect applications. Once a user and device are verified, Mobile Connect offers pre-configured bookmarks for one-click access to corporate applications and resources for which the user and device has privileges.
URL control allows apps that require a VPN connection to create a VPN profile and automatically initiate or disconnect Mobile Connect on launch.
On-Device Data Protection
Authenticated users can securely browse and view allowed intranet file shares and files from within the Mobile Connect app, while administrators can establish and enforce mobile application management policy for the Mobile Connect app to control whether files viewed can be opened in other apps (iOS7 only), copied to the clipboard, printed or cached securely within the Mobile Connect app. In addition, if the user’s credentials are revoked, content stored in the Mobile Connect app is locked and can no longer be accessed or viewed.
