Dell announced updates to the SonicWALL Secure Mobile Access (SMA) operating system (OS).
The new Dell SonicWALL SMA 11.4 gives organizations the power to easily provision secure mobile access on a global scale, regardless of data type, device used and/or remote worker location.
Stating that SonicWALL SMA portfolio has new capabilities to ensure security compliance with the latest industry and government regulations, Dell said this offering is ideal for highly regulated industries such as government, financial and health care.
“With so many mobile devices being brought into the workplace by a growing remote workforce, both employer-issued and personally owned, data and applications are intermingling and putting organizations at an increased risk of a serious security breach,” Patrick Sweeney, vice president, product management and marketing, Dell Security.
The recently issued 2016 Dell Security Annual Threat Report revealed that malware for the Android ecosystem continues to rise, putting a majority of all smartphones at risk.
Android-specific ransomware gained popularity and Android malware writers turned out smarter to evade detection and analysis.
Dell said SonicWALL Secure Mobile Access portfolio contains patented technology designed to detect these malware infected and fake mobile apps.
The SonicWALL SMA OS 11.4 is available now at no cost to installed base SonicWALL SMA 1000 series customers who have a support contract in place.
