SonicWall Boundless Cybersecurity Platform Swiftly Providing Remote Workforces with Secure Mobile Access, Defense in ‘New Business Norm’

VENDOR ANNOUNCEMENT:  SonicWall recently announced a modern Boundless Cybersecurity model designed to protect and mobilize organizations, large enterprises, government agencies and small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) operating in a ‘new business normal.’

“What we are seeing is a heroic undertaking by organizations to quickly and efficiently provide security for an unexpected rise in a remote, mobile workforce that will permanently change the way they operate,” said SonicWall President and CEO Bill Conner. “We are now living in the new business normal.”

SonicWall’s Boundless Cybersecurity approach helps solve the cybersecurity business gap as workers prove to be less secure when working from home, leaving companies more exposed than ever. The platform delivers seamless protection that stops the most evasive cyberattacks across endless exposure points and increasingly remote, mobile and cloud-enabled workforces.

“This profound business change will result in increased pressure to execute and deliver proactive, data-centric security protection that is always on, always learning and applies new methods of protection against today’s most pervasive cyberattacks,” said Conner.

New Boundless Cybersecurity Model Complements, Accelerates Company’s Record Performance

IT departments are moving swiftly to operationalize in the new business normal while defending against threats across a range of attack vectors, including networks, email, mobile and remote access, cloud, SaaS applications, endpoints, IoT devices and Wi-Fi. SonicWall has seen record growth in Secure Mobile Access (SMA) hardware (+342%), SMA virtual appliances (+451%) and pooled licenses (+1,006%).

“We have had a record number of inbound requests from verticals that range across the board, including enterprise, governments, K-12, higher education and healthcare,” said SonicWall Chief Revenue Officer Bob VanKirk. “We are operating within a ‘new normal’ at SonicWall, with increased sales efficiency and sales effectiveness, as are our partners. Results are also showing organizations and end-users are embracing this model as well.”

“The pandemic has accelerated a transformational shift in cyber security within Australia and New Zealand,” added SonicWall ANZ Regional Director Jeff Marshall. “We have seen many local organisations scrambling to put together a work-from-home model which resulted in companies shifting to dedicated Secure Remote Access appliances (physical or virtual) to manage workloads effectively, or alternatively purchasing more VPN licences . Secure Remote Access appliances are up 500+% and VPN licensing is up 300+% for ANZ region. We’ve also reported a consistent growth in new partners acquisition.”

As organizations work closer than ever with their security providers, the SonicWall SecureFirst partner program has seen an influx of 1,100 new additions since February 2020, bringing its total to more than 21,500 globally.

Solving the Cybersecurity Business Gap

With escalating risk dramatically surfacing in current threat landscape, the cost of conventional security and the shortage of trained personnel are more acute and have created a growing ‘cybersecurity business gap’.

“We have been working closely with governments in sensitive areas as they go remote with the need for secure remote access by the thousands,” said Conner. “Just like other organizations, they are asking themselves how best to protect the integrity of their operations when nearly 100% of their workforce is remote and mobile. This paradigm creates a growing ‘cybersecurity business gap’ where conventional security approaches and resources no longer make the cut.”

Securing Growing ‘Boundless’ Workforces

As the global workforce shifts to work-from-home deployments, this makes virtual private networks (VPNs) more critical than ever before. In fact, SonicWall has seen a 1,766% increase in VPN-SSL customers quarter-to-date.

“Covid-19 has altered workforce best practices and propelled several enterprises to consider adopting working-from-home and borderless networking within ANZ region,” said Marshall. “SonicWall Boundless Cybersecurity approach prepares local organisations here for the new business normal and closes security gaps.”

SonicWall addresses this new challenge with the scalability and flexibility of its Secure Mobile Access (SMA) series, which has experienced a 2,348% increase of user licenses since February 2020, and adds both security and performance characteristics in its latest release.

SMA also enables users to leverage the economic and operational advantages of cloud platforms by launching their own virtual instances in private clouds based on VMWare or Microsoft Hyper-V, or in AWS or Microsoft Azure public cloud environments.
