SonicWALL Adds Kaspersky Support to Its Firewall Enforced Anti-Virus Client

SonicWALL Enforced Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware Powered by Kaspersky Gives Customers More Choice to Protect from Online and Email-Borne Threats

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) February 21, 2012

SonicWALL, Inc., the leading provider of intelligent network security and data protection solutions, today announced it 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 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 viruses can still enter the network through other entry points, including laptops, thumb drives or other unprotected systems. While protection at multiple layers is the best defense against sophisticated modern threats, deploying, maintaining and enforcing the right security software on endpoint devices can strain IT resources and budgets.

SonicWALL firewalls 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 further ensures 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 integrated Kaspersky technology into its enforced client solution which resides on endpoint computers, delivering 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 supports Microsoft Windows® PCs and laptops and is ideal for deployments scaling from a few to thousands of end-points.
