Secure Mobile Access 12.4 Administration Guide

Secure Mobile Access on SMA Appliances

Welcome to the Secure Mobile Access 12.4.1 Administration Guide. This manual provides the information you need to successfully activate, configure, and administer Secure Mobile Access (SMA) on SonicWall SMA appliances.

SonicWall SMA appliances provide secure access—including clientless access to web applications, access to client/server applications, and file sharing—to employees, business partners, and customers. All traffic is encrypted using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to protect it from unauthorized users.

The appliance makes applications available from a range of access methods—including a standard Web browser, a client application (e.g., Connect Tunnel), or a mobile device app—on a wide range of platforms including Windows, Macintosh, Linux, and mobile devices.

You might use the appliance to create a:

  • Remote access VPN that enables remote employees to securely access private company applications such as email over the Internet.
  • Business partner VPN that provides designated suppliers with access to an internal supply chain application over the Internet.

The appliance’s granular access control lets you define policy and control access down to the user and resource level. Managing policy and configuring the appliance is quick and easy with the Web-based management console.

For an overview of planning your SonicWall Secure Mobile Access appliance configuration and deployment, see the Secure Mobile Access Deployment Planning Guide.

You can directly upgrade to SMA 12.4.1 from SMA 12.1.0, and 12.4.0 versions.

When you are upgrading from SMA 12.3, it is recommended to upgrade to 12.4.0 first, then upgrade to 12.4.1.
