With business boundaries extending around the globe and the walls of traditional offices crumbling, network administrators need a complete security solution that protects both the corporate network and mobile users from malicious intrusions. SonicWALL has developed distributed enforcement architecture to extend corporate security to the mobile desktop through the Global Security Client. This seamless software client provides security for data transmissions and email, plus robust monitoring and management capabilities for the IT staff at the central office. Residing on the mobile user's system, the Global Security Client automatically communicates with a company's SonicWALL gateway back at headquarters each time an individual logs in to the network. Prior to allowing network access, the gateway automatically updates the Global Security Client with the latest security policies and software updates. No prompting or intervention is necessary by either IT staff or the mobile worker - the process is completely seamless. Through an easy-to-use Web-based user interface, the SonicWALL distributed enforcement architecture offers security professionals the capability to manage a mobile user's online and network access - based upon corporate policies - in order to ensure optimal security of the network and maximize network resources. Mobile workers and telecommuters can be organized into adaptable groups with differing policies at a granular level, even down to the individual IP address. The Global Security Client is a flexible, cost-effective solution for security administrators looking to extend network security and control to the mobile workforce. The SonicWALL Global Security Client requires third or fourth-generation SonicWALL VPN gateway with Firmware version 6.6 or higher or SonicOS 2.1 or higher.

of security by protecting the corporate network and remote/mobile workers from
malicious attacks that occur over the Internet.

administrators to create, distribute and manage global security policies for remote
