SonicWall SMA is a unified secure access gateway that enables organizations to provide anytime, anywhere and any device access to mission critical corporate resources. SMA’s granular access control policy engine, context aware device authorization, application level VPN and advanced authentication with single sign-on empowers organizations to embrace BYOD and mobility in a hybrid IT environment.
Mobility and BYOD
For organizations wishing to embrace BYOD, flexible working or third party access, SMA becomes the critical enforcement point across them all. SMA delivers best-in-class security to minimize surface threats, while making organizations more secure by supporting latest encryption algorithms and ciphers. SonicWall’s SMA allows administrators to provision secure mobile access and role-based privileges so end-users get fast, simple access to the business applications, data and resources they require. At the same time, organizations can institute secure BYOD policies to protect their corporate networks and data from rogue access and malware.
Move to the cloud
For organizations embarking on a cloud migration journey, SMA offers a single sign-on (SSO) infrastructure that uses a single web portal to authenticate users in a hybrid IT environment. Whether the corporate resource is on-premise, on the web or in a hosted cloud, the access experience is consistent and seamless. SMA also integrates with industry leading multi-factor authentication technologies for added security.
Managed service providers
For either organizations hosting their own infrastructure or for managed service providers, SMA provides turnkey solution to deliver a high degree of business continuity and scalability. SMA can support up to 20,000 concurrent connections on a single appliance, with the ability to scale upwards of hundreds of thousands users through intelligent clustering. Data centers can reduce costs with active-active clustering and a built-in dynamic load balancer, which reallocates global traffic to the most optimized data center in realtime based on user demand. SMA tool sets enable service providers to deliver services with zero downtime, allowing them to fulfill very aggressive SLAs.
SMA empowers IT departments to provide the best experience and the most secure access depending on the user scenario. Available as hardened physical appliances or powerful virtual appliances, SMA fits seamlessly into existing IT infrastructure. Organizations can choose from a range of fully clientless web-based secure access for third parties or employees on personally owned devices, or a more traditional client-based full tunnel VPN access for executives across all device types. Whether organizations need to provide reliable secure access to five users from a single location, or scale up to thousands’ of users across globally distributed data centers, SonicWall SMA has a solution.
SonicWall SMA enables organizations to embrace mobility and BYOD without fear, and move to the cloud with ease. SMA empowers workforces and provides them with a consistent access experience.
