SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SonicWALL, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNWL), a leading secure network infrastructure company, today announced the Rosen Publishing Group, Inc., one of the nations largest and most respected publishers of nonfiction books, has deployed SonicWALL Clean VPN and Clean Wireless solutions.

"SonicWALL offered the perfect mix of functions, usability and price," said John Knittel, Vice President of Technology at Rosen Publishing.

The Manhattan-based company sought an easy-to-manage and affordable solution for secure remote access in order to ease demand on premium-cost desk space.

"SonicWALL has increased our capability to have more remote users," said Knittel. "Plus, our users really like the SonicWALL SSL VPN. They find it incredibly easy to use, and that takes a huge burden off IT for remote support."

Knittel established a SonicWALL® Clean VPN environment by deploying a high-performance SonicWALL Network Security Appliance (NSA) 3500 Unified Threat Management (UTM) firewall with a SonicWALL SSL-VPN 2000 secure remote access appliance. The resulting dual protection decrypts and decontaminates all authorized SSL VPN traffic before it enters the company's network. Now offsite users can easily and securely access file servers as well as terminal services to applications, using a Web-based portal. Knittel also deployed a SonicWALL NSA 240 firewall at the company's upstate office location.  

To secure an increasing amount of wireless traffic over emerging wireless device form factors, Knittel has also deployed a SonicWALL Clean Wireless environment, leveraging his NSA UTM firewalls and SonicPoint -N access points.

The SonicWALL Clean Wireless solution goes beyond mere secure wireless solutions by making Rosen Publishing's wireless networks as secure as its wired networks. Clean Wireless secures the wireless network with innovative dual protection by encrypting wireless traffic and decontaminating it from network threats using high-speed Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection while also protecting the network from viruses, spyware and wireless attacks.
