SonicWALL Introduces Spike Licensing to Rapidly Increase SSL VPN User
Capacity and Improve Disaster Recovery Capabilities
New Secure Remote Access 5.5 Firmware Levels Playing Field for Small-to-Medium
Organisations to Manage Remote Access During Disasters

Sydney, July 26, 2011—
SonicWALL, Inc
., the leading provider of
intelligent network security

and
data protection
solutions, today announced availability of the SonicWALL® SSL VPN 5.5
firmware for the
Secure Remote Access (SRA) Series
.The release significantly enhances
SonicWALL’s market-leading SSL VPN technology with the introduction of
spike licensing,
which enables network administrators to quickly and automatically increase the concurrent
user
capacity of their remote access solution during disaster situations. With the release, SonicWALL
also offers new features that continue to innovate
Web Application Firewall (WAF)
technology to
help companies meet PCI compliance requirementsand deploy outbound Data Loss Prevention
(DLP) with advanced web application security.With the new offering, SonicWALL’s SMB
customers continue to receive strong ROI results without compromising on security and ease of
use.

Spike licensing allows an increased number of licensed remote users to connect back to the
corporate network in the event of an unexpected increase in demand; such as during an
emergency, snowstorm, floodling or pandemic outbreaks. Offered as a 10-day license, Spike
licensing can be enabled to quickly increase the number of concurrent users, allowing SMBs to
limit the committed upfront investment required for user licenses.

Further expanding the capabilties of its award-winning WAF, SonicWALL now provides the
ability to scan web traffic for credit card and Social Security number information which provides
increased protection to help prevent the leakage of sensitive information. Additional WAF
features in SSL VPN 5.5 firmware include cookie tampering protection, PCI compliance report
generation and application profiling to help achieve PCI compliance. Application profiling allows
the WAF to intelligently learn about the Layer-7 traffic, and over time detect and differentiate
normal from irregular traffic. With attacks of web-based vulnerabilities on the rise, SonicWALL
WAF provides advanced web security proactively minimising breaches such as SQL injection
and cross-site scripting (XSS).

The SonicWALL SRA Series offers clientless tunnel access for a variety of fixed and mobile
operating systems, includingWindows®, MacOS®, Linux, Windows Mobile,Apple iOS®and
Google Android®. It offers Virtual Assist / Virtual Access for remote support and control as well
as WAF for web application security. Using SonicWALL Secure Remote Access, SMBs benefit
from granular unified policy, ActiveSync support for mobile devices, two-factor authentication
including one-time-passwords (OTP),load balancing and high availability – all in an easy to
manage and deployable interface. The latest firmware release enables the use of Virtual Assist
to remotely support an end-customer system running Windows®, MacOS® or Linux.

“As workforces become increasingly mobile, employees expect the same network functionality
and network access in the office and on the road. For SMBs with smaller IT budgets and staff,
this poses a challenge as they lack the resources to manage complicated SSL VPNs on multiple
platforms, while handling issues around PCI compliance and web based data leakage” said
Sandeep Joshi, Country Manager ANZ at SonicWALL. “Our
SRA Series
provides SMBs with
affordable, world-class security with all the flexibility and enterprise capabilities at a low Total
Cost of Ownership, thus enabling the businesses to operate as efficiently as possible.”

The new SMB SSL VPN 5.5 firmware is now available for the SonicWALL SRA 1200,SRA 4200
and SRA Virtual Appliance SSL VPNs for small- to medium-sized businesses (SMB).
