SonicWall: Expansion of Security Services; Kaspersky Anti-Virus

Kaspersky Lab

Intelligent network security and data protection solutions provider, SonicWall, has expanded its suite of firewall security services with the addition of Kaspersky Anti-Virus to its Enforced Client Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware solution.

SonicWall Firewalls are designed to ensure easy  deployment, provisioning and enforcement of the client on endpoint devices  through a unique policy-driven engine.

SonicWall Next-Generation and Unified Threat Management  firewalls already provide gateway anti-virus through SonicWall’s proprietary  reassembly-free deep packet inspection anti-malware solution, protecting the  perimeter, wireless and VPNs. But, according to SonicWall, viruses can still enter the  network through laptops, thumb drives or other unprotected systems. Protection  at multiple layers is the best defence against sophisticated modern threats,  however, maintaining, enforcing and deploying the right security software on  endpoint devices can put a strain on IT resources and budgets. SonicWall firewalls are designed to provide an innovative  multi-layered anti-malware strategy consisting of its anti-malware solution at  the gateway and enforced anti-virus solution at the endpoints.

When a non-compliant end-point within the network tries  to connect to the internet, the firewall will redirect the user to a web page to  install the latest SonicWall Enforced Client Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware  software. The firewall is also designed to ensure that all the  end-point clients are automatically updated with the latest anti-virus and  anti-spyware signatures without end-user intervention. The updated clients can  remediate infections by cleansing the endpoint systems and thus preventing  further propagation of the threat throughout the network. SonicWall has integrated Kaspersky technology into its  enforced client solution. The software resides on endpoint computers and  delivers critical protection against viruses, spyware, Trojans, worms, rootkits  and more. “Deploying, maintaining and enforcing the right security  software on endpoint devices within a network can be difficult,” said Swarup  Selvaraman, product line manager at SonicWall. “Our innovative SonicWall  solution simplifies this process and gives IT managers’ easy-to-deploy  anti-virus and anti-spyware protection across any number of devices using  policy-based management and reporting. Kaspersky support bolsters our existing  offering and gives customers more opportunities to choose the anti-virus  solution that best meets their needs.” The solution is designed to support Microsoft Windows PCs  and laptops and is ideal for deployments scaling from a few to thousands of  end-points.
