SonicWall Remote Access Solutions... What You Need To Know

02/04/2020

Remote Access Solutions from SonicWall

 

We would like to share some important information with you during this time.

In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, millions of us are now working from home or remote offices.  We have been spending the last few weeks working with many of our customers expanding or deploying these solutions.

 

Know your options

With SonicWall remote access solutions we are able to offer a variety of options to assist your business in continuing to function through this time:

  • VPN Clients/services for your existing SonicWall firewall or VPN appliance
  • Dedicated Remote Access solutions for networks with no existing infrastructure
  • Free Virtual Appliances for customer purchasing user licenses
  • Rental Virtual Appliances with minimal commitment (3 months) and cost
  • Assistance with deploying and securing your solution

 

We've updated our website to include a dedicated page with the information we believe you need to stay secure whilst working remotely, regardless of your business size and sector.   View page now.

We remain concerned that whilst some of our customers have considered and taken steps to protect the security of their expanding networks, many are still unaware of the potential vulnerabilities and risks associated with a displaced workforce.

 

The challenge to ensure adequate security protection has never been greater, as we transition from perimeter-based security to virtual networks and cloud-based services. 

The boundaries of many networks have now been expanded to include many sites over which we have no control, at the same time the cyber security risk has risen as criminals look to exploit this increased exposure. 

 

In the coming weeks we will be in touch with information on things you should be considering today but we’d recommend chatting with us about:

•    To combat an increase in Phishing – Free KnowBe4 Phishing Tests and ongoing training

We are seeing a huge increase in phishing attempts where criminals look to catch staff ‘off their guard’ whilst working from home.

•    To secure the cloud – SonicWall Cloud Application Security

More users are now directly accessing data and services stored in the cloud from their homes.  Talk to us about why it is essential to have security running on Office 365, G Suite, Salesforce, Dropbox and other services.

•    To secure the desktop – SonicWall Capture Client

Many network users are now at home, connected to networks via VPN.   Capture Client extends your security and enables continued protection ensuring infection cannot spread through the network

•    To secure identities – Two-factor Authentication

Your SonicWall remote access solution can be configured to use Google Auth, or other free cloud-based authentication services, as well as traditional 2FA solutions. Remove the threat of compromised devices or users by deploying these - we can help if you need advice. 

 

Our customer services and support teams remain fully operational and we are here to help you and your team stay safe during these challenging and unprecedented times.
