When it comes to providing data security solutions and protecting networks from malware and other invidious attacks, SonicWALL is an industry leader. This was demonstrated again this week when the organizers of the 2011 FIBA Americas Championship chose SonicWALL to provide secure Wi-Fi access during the event. Athletes, event staff, and hundreds of journalists will use the service, which will be managed through SonicWALL's Global Management System.
Ricardo Marchetti, speaking for organizers, explained the decision to use SonicWALL. "Journalists today require immediate accessibility to the Internet to upload event coverage and media. Similarly, event organizers and their staff require internet access to sell tickets and to access local and remote online resources needed for the event. Both wired and wireless communications must be secure and readily available."
SonicWALL's Use in a Managed Services Model
If SonicWALL is robust enough to provide data protection and internet security to a large, high-profile event such as the FIBA Americas Championship, it also has the capacity to meet the needs of today's small to medium business organizations. SonicWALL, unlike single-user antivirus products, is a complete security solution when managed by an expert IT company with experience providing data protection to business enterprises.
SonicWALL provides deep packet inspection as well as the detection and prevention of unauthorized attempts to access the network. Both anti-virus and anti-spyware protection are provided at the gateway level, and integrated web content filtering works to reduce the network's exposure to threats that transmit themselves via web pages. Moreover, in a managed services setting, SonicWALL provides monitoring and remediation 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
