SonicWALL, Inc. today announced the addition of two new secure wireless access points to its SonicPoint™ Series. These new devices are designed to provide clean wireless connections through integration with a collection of existing SonicWALL products: Gateway Anti-Virus, Intrusion Prevention, Anti-Spyware and Content Filtering. They support wireless encryption standards, wireless intrusion prevention services and rogue access point detection.SonicPoint-Ni

From a technical perspective, the new devices – the SonicPoint-Ni and SonicPoint-Ne – are 802.11n compliant, dual-band, single radio wireless secure access points that integrate seamlessly into the existing SonicWALL TZ, Network Security Appliance (NSA) and E-Class NSA product lines. They extend SonicWALL’s firewall capabilities to distributed wireless networks, so customers can manage both their wireless and wired network from one firewall device.

The firewall enables organizations to control and prioritize wireless access to business applications while de-prioritizing other bandwidth-hogging applications and sites such as gaming applications or video streaming Web sites. According to SonicWALL, IT managers are now able to allocate rights on a granular basis to those specific users and groups who need to access key sets of applications, while restricting access to other users and groups where appropriate.

Retailers with concerns about the Payment Card Initiative (PCI) can deploy SonicWALL wireless networks with enhanced security and scan either the 2.4 or 5.0 MHz spectrums to satisfy PCI security requirements.
