Mobile Connect also adds URL Control, allowing customized applications that require a VPN tunnel to automatically launch Mobile Connect, further enhancing ease of use.

  • Deployed with a Dell SonicWALL Next-Generation Firewall solution (featuring Gateway Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware and Intrusion Prevention Service), Mobile Connect establishes a Clean VPN™ that decrypts and removes threats from Android device traffic tunneled over SSL VPN before they enter the network.

  • Dell SonicWALL Aventail™ E-Class Secure Remote Access (SRA) solutions feature End Point Control™ (EPC) which allows administrators to define policies that identify specific attributes about the device and ensure the policies are enforced before allowing access to your corporate network.  As part of EPC enforcement via Mobile Connect, a policy can be set up to determine if an Android device has been rooted, so that connections from those systems may be rejected or quarantined.
