Deep packet inspection engine to find malicious content
SonicWALL, a secure network infrastructure company, has announced development of its Clean VPN technology with the release of SSL VPN remote access integrated into the Unified Threat Management platform.
The company said that SSL based Clean VPN integration delivers simplified and encrypted connectivity to remote network users while increasing protection by inspecting these same connections for intrusions, malware and misuse.
The company also said that its Clean VPN technology simplifies remote access by connecting users with a browser-based SSL VPN connection without requiring a pre-installed client.
This technology is expected to improve the deployment time and also provide protection by cleaning connections of malware and harmful threats. The technology uses an advanced and high-performance deep packet inspection engine that can find malicious content that may have been contracted while on the road, through network misuse or through the use of unsecure networks.
Jon Kuhn, director of product management of SonicWALL, said: SonicWALL’s integrated SSL based Clean VPN technology offers our customers’ a breakthrough in simplicity and protection for secure remote access. SonicWALL’s SSL VPN feature-set, allows organizations simplified and efficient network access without increasing their security risk.
