To help companies trying to embrace the "bring your own device" craze, Dell has launched its SonicWall mobile security platform for managed and unmanaged tablets and smartphones.

Dell included SonicWall Mobile Connect 3.0 and SonicWall secure remote access (SRA) 7.5 with its latest software update, giving administrators new abilities to ensure their networks are as secure as possible.

 

"In today's mobile workplace, it is vitally important to enable remote and mobile employees to maintain their productivity without compromising network security," said Patrick Sweeney, Dell Security Products Director of Product Management, in a press statement. "The co-mingling of business and personal applications and data on mobile devise presents an even greater challenge to IT when it comes to providing users with mobile access to everything they need to do their jobs, but still protecting corporate data - in-flight, at rest on the device, and on the network - from the multitude of threats posed by mobile devices."

 

The Dell Mobile Connect app is available for free from Google Play and the Apple Store.

 

Dell's acquisition of SonicWall in 2012 sent shock waves through the IT community, with many IT contractors, businesses, and IT managers discouraged by the acquisition. Since then, Dell continues to work to redevelop relationships in the business community, and hopes increased security - including BYOD and mobile products - will help get IT managers back on its side.
