Providing mobile workers with a secure, easy-to-use solution that gives them remote access to mission-critical resources.
In today's business environment, providing mobile workers with a secure, easy-to-use solution that gives them remote access to mission-critical resources on the corporate network is vital to a company's success. At the same time, that solution must be extremely flexible and simple to manage. Traditional solutions require companies to maintain remote access servers, modem banks, telephone lines or pay telecommunication usage charges to support mobile users. Now there's an easier and less expensive way.
With the SonicWALL Global VPN Client, your mobile users have a simple, easy-to-use solution for securely accessing the corporate network. The Global VPN Client software provides mobile users with secure, reliable access to corporate resources through broadband, wireless and dial-up connections. And with industry-standard 3DES or AES encryption, your private information remains completely confidential.
Client Policy Provisioning
SonicWALL's innovative technology enables the Global VPN Client to establish a connection after automatically downloading the VPN configuration data from the SonicWALL VPN gateway using only the IP address or domain name of the SonicWALL VPN gateway. This removes the burden from the remote user of setting up often complex VPN connections.
Group Policy Management
The Global VPN Client access can be configured and restricted to specific networks and sub-networks, using internal database or RADIUS groups (requires SonicOS Enhanced for the SonicWALL VPN gateway).
NT Domain Logon Script Support
The Global VPN Client automatically launches Login Script after the VPN tunnel is established as part of the authentication process. This allows users to have access to mapped network drives.
Dial-Up VPN Connectivity
Global VPN Client connections can be established using Microsoft Dial-Up Networking or third-party dial-up applications.
SonicWALL's award winning Global Management System (GMS) provides simplified management of Global VPN Client connections.
VPN Session Reliability
The Global VPN Client supports multiple redundant SonicWALL VPN gateways to ensure mission-critical network access in the event the primary gateway fails.
Tunneling to Multiple Gateways
Tunneling to Multiple Gateways. With the Global VPN Client, simultaneous VPN Client connections can be established to multiple SonicWALL VPN gateways.
Hub-and-Spoke VPN Access
The Global VPN Client allows configuration of a different subnet for all remote users than the subnet of the LAN, simplifying the hub-and-spoke VPN access. When a remote user successfully authenticates with the central site, the client system receives a virtual IP address, granting the remote user access to other trusted VPN sites.
Many networks use Network Address Translation (NAT) to connect multiple computers to a broadband Internet connection using a single IP address. The SonicWALL Global VPN Client extends secure network access by allowing encapsulated IPSec VPN traffic to pass through (traverse) any IP network using NAT.
Multi-Platform Client Support
Providing maximum deployment flexibility, the Global VPN Client allows secure, reliable, client-initiated VPN connections from any single or dual-processor computer running Microsoft Windows 98 SE,Windows Me,Windows NT 4.0,Windows 2000 Professional, Windows XP Professional, Windows XPE or Windows XP Home Edition.
The Global VPN Client Enterprise allows Global VPN Client licenses to be shared between SonicWALL appliances using the SonicWALL License Sharing feature.
