Changes To Technology Resulting from Covid-19

We have never experienced anything like COVID-19 in our lifetime. It came on fast and disrupted businesses everywhere. Everything has changed the way we work, communicate and collaborate in a matter of weeks.

With businesses temporarily closing offices and wanting employees to work remotely, having a remote access solution is essential.

Remote Solutions


SonicWALL SSL VPN provides users with remote access to a company’s private network and applications.  This connection can be made on most of your devices including laptops, desktops, tablets and smartphones.  Secure remote access is essential for business because it protects private communications and information when you are using an unsecured external network.  Networks can be vulnerable to eavesdropping and other  cyberthreats.  Using SonicWALL’s SSL VPN protects against security threats.

This hardware supports enterprise authentication methods including two-factor authentication and one-time passwords.  It also supports single sign on capabilities.  Features include network access control features which makes sure that devices connecting to your network are safe.  This covers checking for antispyware and antivirus software, personal firewalls and detecting jailbroken or rooted mobile devices.
