SonicWall Mobile Connect

Simple, policy-enforced access for smartphone and tablet devices

Give your employees simple, policy-enforced access for smartphones and tablet devices

Give your employees safe, easy access to the resources they need to be productive from a range of device platforms — including iOS, Windows® and Android — with the SonicWall Mobile Connect app. Provide fast, secure mobile access through an intuitive, easy-to-use app that is simple to install and launch on both smartphones and tablets.


Easy to use

Empower your workforce with secure mobile access to the files, applications and resources your employees need to be productive with an intuitive app that is easy to download and install on iOS, MacOSX, Android, Kindle Fire and Windows mobile devices.

Simplified access

Provide your employees and stakeholders with full access to allowed network resources — including web-based, client/server, server-based, host-based or back-connect applications. Display only the resources to which your workforce is authorized based on your policies for each user and mobile platform. Make access and navigation to your resources easy with pre-configured bookmarks that are displayed once Mobile Connect establishes a connection. Enable one-click access to browse and view permitted intranet file shares and files.

Data security

Enforce strong VPN encryption, authentication and granular access policies to ensure that access to data is secure. Secure on-device data with policies to allow or disallow intranet file download, and on-device file share, copy and print.

Deployment with SonicWall Secure Mobile Access appliances

Deploy Mobile Connect with SonicWall Secure Mobile Access (SMA) appliances to establish encrypted SSL VPN connections; authenticate users; interrogate mobile devices for such important security information as jailbreak or root status; allow access only to trusted devices and users; and simplify access policy management through a single management interface.

Deployment with SonicWall next-generation firewalls

Get a deeper level of security by combining Mobile Connect with SonicWall next-generation firewalls (NGFWs). Give your employees easy, secure iOS, Android and Windows mobile device access via SonicWall SSL VPN and next-generation firewall appliances through a single management interface. Establish encrypted SSL VPN connections; decrypt and remove hidden threats that are tunneled over SSL VPN; and define and enforce how application and bandwidth assets are used over the mobile VPN connection with the application intelligence and control capabilities of SonicWall NGFWs.
