<p>SONICWALL ANNOUNCES FIRST SSL VPN APPLIANCE RANGE SUPPORTING UNLIMITED NUMBERS OF END USERS AT NO ADDITIONAL COST</p>
<p>Simple and affordable appliances support SonicWALL’s market-leading UTM appliances as well as third party networks</p>
<p>Sydney. – July 25, 2005 – SonicWALL, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNWL), today announced it will launch the industry’s first range of SSL-VPN solutions for remote network access supporting unlimited numbers of concurrent tunnels at no additional cost. The powerful family of SSL-VPN 200 and SSL-VPN 2000 appliances makes remote clientless access simple and affordable. They will interoperate seamlessly behind third party firewalls and deliver enhanced Unified Threat Management (UTM) protection to remote users who access a SonicWALL-protected network. SonicWALL is the worldwide market share leader in UTM technology in Q1 2005 according to IDC (Worldwide tracker report Q1 2005).</p>
<p>“What today’s businesses need is a full spectrum of affordable solutions that deliver secure, clientless and easy-to-use remote access from anywhere while minimizing maintenance and support costs,” said Tim Dickinson, Country Manager, SonicWALL, Australia, New Zealand and Oceania. “These new SSL-VPN products complement our existing IPSec VPN solutions and will provide our entire channel partner base with an extended range of options supporting our UTM capabilities.”
With this new product set, SonicWALL now offers a full spectrum of secure networking solutions including high-security IPSec-based VPN products. The SSL-VPN products complement SonicWALL’s UTM-enabled firewall/VPN products and represent a further extension of SonicWALL’s appliance range, initiated with the launch of the Content Security Manager 2100 CF.</p>
<p>With SonicWALL SSL-VPN appliances, secure access for remote and mobile users becomes remarkably simple. Remote users require only a standard Internet browser to log in to a personalized Web portal from which the user can access e-mail, files, applications and internal company Web sites. Additionally, the appliances deliver web-based remote desktop access and full network access through SonicWALL’s NetExtender technology.</p>
<p>Administrators also will find the SSL-VPN 200 and SSL-VPN 2000 very simple to deploy and manage. Ease of use features including an intuitive graphical interface and ‘getting started’ guide make SonicWALL’s SSL-VPN appliances simple for network administrators to deploy and manage. The solution also provides the capability for granular policy configuration to give the administrator complete control over individual users’ access to specific network resources.</p>
<p>“Additionally by moving into this market SonicWALL is opening up ever greater revenue opportunities for our resellers and managed security service providers,” says Dickinson. “By making enterprise class SSL VPN technology readily available to SME’s at an affordable price point, we’re making it much easier for these types of companies to enjoy remote access to their company resources through any web browser. That’s compelling for many of our customers”.</p>
<p>SonicWALL’s SSL-VPN product range will ship in 2005. Further information is available on http://www.sonicwall.com/products/ssl_vpn.html</p>
