Secure Mobile Access 12.4 Administration Guide

A Quick Tour of Modern Workplace

This section gives a general overview of Modern WorkPlace from the customer perspective. The Modern WorkPlace application enables you to securely access private network resources—including Web sites, Web applications, and shared folders or files—from a Web browser.

The Modern WorkPlace is on par with the legacy WorkPlace. All the agents that are supported in legacy WorkPlace are supported in Modern WorkPlace.

The SonicWall Secure Mobile Access user interface for the WorkPlace has been updated to the new SonicWall user interface appearance. This new appearance not only provides a new look and feel, but also provides improved navigation capabilities—including the ability to expand and collapse the navigation menus. In addition, the new user interface design is now compatible with mobile devices.

The Modern Workplace UI provides new features such as:

  • Filter Tab
  • Search bar
  • Reload filter
