By SIP Trunking Report Contributing Editor

SonicWALL, a provider of secure network infrastructure, recently announced that its Clean Virtual Private Network (VPN) secure remote access platform has a growing customer base across industry various sectors.

The Clean VPN solution has been launched for customers in the government, IT services, financial sectors and consultancies and helps them to expand their networks to remote access users in a secure manner.
The Clean VPN from SonicWALL includes dual protection and has been outfitted with Unified Threat Management (UTM) firewall technology as well as secure remote access Virtual Private Network (VPN) solutions to enable the platform to supply customers with a secure solution for their VPN access via data encryption, enforced authentication and granular access policies.
"SonicWALL's Clean VPN technology is an ideal remote access solution for businesses of all sizes, as it delivers complete protection using a secure connection and real-time traffic inspection," said Patrick Sweeney, vice president of Product Management for SonicWALL.
"Our customers' businesses benefit by having the confidence that their remote network is secure, thanks to the Clean VPN's revolutionary multi-layered approach. For our customers, it's an ideal combination of two technologies many businesses can ill afford to be without - a quality firewall and remote access solution," said Sweeney.
Some of the customers using the Clean VPN solution include The City of Lincoln, the Alta One Federal Credit Union, the Jewish National Fund and RVM. This solution was chosen to combat the issues faced by these enterprises involving sharing company data with third-parties and increased employee use of Web 2.0 applications.
"We needed an infrastructure that would reliably monitor all our inbound and outbound network traffic without impeding network performance, as well as needing secure remote access. SonicWALL's SSL-VPN 2000 and NSA 4500 gave us the confidence to provide secure access to employees regardless of location, without sacrificing the integrity of the corporate network," said Geoffrey Sherman, associate director of Technology, RVM.
