Loophold Security Distribution, local distributor of SonicWALL, a provider of intelligent network security and data protection solutions, has announced the availability of SonicWALL’s SSL VPN 5.5 firmware for the Secure Remote Access (SRA) Series.
The release significantly enhances SonicWALL’s market-leading SSL VPN technology and with the introduction of Spike Licensing.
Spike licensing allows an increased number of licensed remote users to connect back to the corporate network in the event of an unexpected increase in demand; such as during an emergency, thunder storms, flooding or pandemic outbreaks. Offered as a 10-day license, Spike licensing can be enabled to quickly increase the number of concurrent users, allowing Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to limit the committed upfront investment required for user licenses.
Says Martin Tassev, MD at LOOPHOLD Security Distribution, “Budget constraints are usually an issue for SMEs and having the ability to increase licensing for a short period of time provides customers with flexibility without the associated higher price tag. This will provide local businesses with an affordable security solution that can be scaled when required, delivering a low total cost of ownership (TCO).”
The SonicWALL SRA Series offers clientless tunnel access for a variety of fixed and mobile operating systems, including Windows, MacOS, Linux, Windows Mobile, Apple iOS and Google Android. It offers Virtual Assist / Virtual Access for remote support and control as well as WAF for web application security. Using SonicWALL Secure Remote Access, SMEs benefit from granular unified policy, ActiveSync support for mobile devices, two-factor authentication including one-time-passwords (OTP), load balancing and high availability – all in an easy to manage and deployable interface. The latest firmware release enables the use of Virtual Assist to remotely support an end-customer system running Windows, MacOS or Linux.
