Solutions for Business Needs
Organizations of all kinds face an array of security threats – and must react quickly with limited IT resources. To address these threats Dell SonicWALL provides security solutions for business needs such as networking, site-to-site communications, telecommuting, POS transactions, or Secure Web sites. Dell SonicWALL solutions are designed to meet the objectives of today's Internet-connected business.
It can be a real challenge for IT administrators to maximize the business value of Web applications while minimizing the risk. While certain critical applications need bandwidth prioritization, other non-productive apps may need to be bandwidth throttled or completely blocked. Dell SonicWALL Application Intelligence, Control and Visualization makes the job easy, with granular control and real-time visualization of applications to guarantee bandwidth prioritization and ensure maximum network security and productivity.
When running a business, there are always new viruses to address. In addition to computer viruses that plague a network, IT must also consider outbreaks of real-world viruses like H1N1, natural disasters, and even severe weather conditions, which can each affect employee productivity and bring the organization down. Dell™ SonicWALL™ Clean VPN enables organizations and employees to stay productive by safely working from home in the event of a disease outbreak or even a simple snowstorm.
Whether as the foundation for building a complete wireless network or as an addition to an existing wired network, wireless technology brings special security challenges. Well-publicized stories about “war driving” and other techniques through which hackers can easily infiltrate a wireless network have raised awareness of the problem—and a need for a solution.
Any backup is only as reliable as its ability to restore data and applications when organizations need them most. In addition to protecting data, businesses need to protect the systems that access that data, such as Exchange®, SQL Server® and Active Directory®. Meanwhile, backing up and restoring rapidly expanding volumes of data is not enough. IT also has to meet stricter regulatory compliance for data archiving.
In a distributed business model, branch offices and point-of-sale (POS) locations extend a company's reach into key markets, but that communication link must be available 24x7 and be able to support the business' applications. Dell SonicWALL Secure Remote Access (SRA) solutions help companies establish centralized control over remote access points and provide the robust security and performance needed for business continuance.
Balancing key business priorities and risk management is a key challenge for organizations, made especially difficult in today’s world of continuous change. Companies strive to optimize productivity and maximize ROI by taking advantage of technology trends like Cloud Computing, Web 2.0, virtualization and mobility. These trends extend the value of business networks, but also create new avenues for rapidly evolving and increasingly dangerous threats. While cyber criminals globally are financially and even politically motivated, organizations today must defend themselves within ever tightening budget restraints.
Ultra-mobile laptops, PDAs and smartphones have become more cost effective and have overtaken the predominant business role of traditional desktops. With expanding WiFi and 3G cellular networks, high-speed coverage is everywhere. Workers now access corporate resources from home computers, third-party partner or customer networks or public access kiosks in airports, hotels and cafés. While mobility has many advantages, it also exposes networks to malware and regulatory compliance.
Dell SonicWALL Internet security appliances are built on deep packet inspection engine technology, the most effective way to protect network access. Deep packet inspection technology scans against multiple application types and protocols, ensuring your network is protected from both internal and external attacks and application vulnerabilities. Dell SonicWALL's deep packet inspection engine scales to protect all users, regardless of file size or the amount of traffic and, by working at the application layer, Dell SonicWALL's deep packet inspection protects against hidden application vulnerabilities that may be inadvertently letting attackers in through an unknown back door. This enterprise class technology is designed into every Dell SonicWALL Internet security appliance.
Increasingly, corporations are building their communications fabric over the public Internet for cost savings, flexibility and performance. With VPN technologies, organizations now can transmit data securely to its destination without the risk of being corrupted or hijacked. The broad range of Dell SonicWALL VPN-based network security solutions facilitates both telecommuting and mobile computing. Whether you are a telecommuter seeking a secure alternative to the "untrusted" home network or a road warrior connecting from a hotel room, Dell SonicWALL has a solution designed to meet your specific business needs.
Network attackers have become more sophisticated, and their attacks more targeted. Many of today's attacks are blended attacks, which use multiple techniques to try to infiltrate a network. While organizations need an array of techniques to combat blended attacks, managing multiple, separate security tools can be overwhelming, inefficient and expensive. Unified Threat Management (UTM) is the best security approach for small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), bringing a new level of efficiency to the security field.
Increasingly, businesses need a security strategy for streaming voice and video applications that converge with existing data applications on the same networks, such as teleconferencing, digital voicemail and Voice Over IP (VoIP). Easily managed and highly cost-effective,Dell™ SonicWALL™ Converged Network Security solutions offer high-performance, multi-layered security, while maintaining Quality of Service (QoS) for time-sensitive voice and video applications.
Whether in an enterprise, distributed or a service provider environment, a "one-application-per-server" model can underutilize hardware resources and overburden server administrators. Organizations can overcome these limitations by employing virtualization to consolidate multiple virtual appliances onto a single physical server or a server cluster. Additionally, virtualization enables organizations to allocate additional computing resources to the virtual machine cluster as required.
Dell™ SonicWALL™ Email Security and Network Security solutions are now available for Microsoft Windows® Small Business Sever (SBS) and Essential Business Server solutions (EBS). If you use SBS or EBS, Dell SonicWALL solutions provide the necessary protection to secure these technologies. An ideal complement to SBS and EBS, Dell SonicWALL solutions deliver a comprehensive security package that ensures businesses of all sizes have access to enterprise class products at affordable prices.
