  • 13 June, 2006 13:19

<p>Company rockets to first place within six months of introducing new SSL VPN appliances with unrestricted user model</p>
<p>SYDNEY., June 12, 2006 – SonicWALL, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNWL) today announced that it has achieved #1 position in worldwide unit share for SSL VPN gateways, according to Infonetics Research’s Network Security Appliances and Software Report for Q1 06.</p>
<p>SonicWALL entered the SSL VPN market for the first time in September, 2005 with its SSL-VPN 2000 appliance for 100 users and in January, 2006, introduced its SSL-VPN 200 appliance for up to 10 simultaneous users. The product set is designed to meet the previously underserved needs of small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) for simple, secure remote and mobile access to network resources without license restrictions on the number of concurrent users.</p>
<p>“SonicWALL’s rapid growth to leadership in this area has been propelled by their visionary business model, unique technology, strong channel network, and ability to execute in a market previously dominated by more expensive and expensive offerings from larger players,” said James Carter of Integration Works, a SonicWALL partner. “Their technology is very attractive to our customers, whose requirements for simple, secure access for their remote and mobile workers are steadily increasing. The feature set brings together high performance, world-class security, ease of use and affordability in a single appliance.”</p>
<p>SonicWALL’s SSL-VPN product series allows remote and mobile workers to establish a secure connection to the corporate network with just a PC and an Internet connection using only a Web browser. Corporate applications, remote desktops, e-mail, files and intranets can be accessed simply and securely. In addition, when used in conjunction with a SonicWALL PRO and TZ series firewall, the SSL-VPN provides enhanced dynamic threat protection by routing traffic for scanning through the firewall’s deep packet inspection engine. The appliance also interoperates with the majority of third-party firewalls.</p>
<p>“Our rapid rise to unit share leadership confirms the feedback from our reseller community, that there is a large, untapped market for SSL VPN technology that is easy to use and does not carry a per-user cost penalty,” said Chris Barton, Regional Manager, ANZ for SonicWALL.</p>
