Online PR News – 10-September-2012 – Dubai – Tweet this: Germany’s leading retailers chose Dell #SonicWALL to enhance network #security

September 9, 2012 — Dell SonicWALL today announced that Rudolf Wöhrl AG, one of Germany’s best-known fashion chains, selected Dell SonicWALL to enhance network security. With 38 outlets employing more than 2,500 staff, Wöhrl sells popular brands like Hugo Boss, Esprit, Gerry Weber and Marc O’Polo. All of Wöhrl’s branches are networked for instant access to important data and information. After careful analysis of the solutions on the market, Wöhrl chose to deploy Dell SonicWALL Aventail E-Class SRA (Secure Remote Access) Appliance, which combines complete application access with full security capabilities, endpoint control and unified policy management. For Wöhrl, central management and monitoring of every single endpoint and real-time security status monitoring were key factors in the decision in favor of Dell SonicWALL.

Additionally, Work in Progress Textilhandels GmbH, the exclusive distributor of the Carhartt clothing brand in Europe, has chosen Dell SonicWALL for network security solutions. Carhartt is one of Europe’s leading streetwear brands. Since the company switched to Dell SonicWALL, the head office is protected by a cluster of NSA E6500 Network Security Appliances (NSA). A variety of systems are used at a large number of branches and manufacturing sites, from the small TZ 210 firewall to the NSA Series. A major plus for Work in Progress is all systems around the world are managed and monitored with the Dell SonicWALL Global Management System, which significantly cuts administration effort and costs.

Dell SonicWALL is increasingly becoming the technology partner of choice for retail companies. Dell SonicWALL solutions connect points of sale, including tills, for secure data transfer. They also enable secure data communications between retail stores and the HQ data center over VPN connections. Retailers face a growing number of IT challenges, including increasingly strict compliance requirements from bank and credit card payment service providers and new electronic payment methods using cellphones, for instance. With cashless payments on the increase, retailers must ensure robust data protection in order to remain competitive.

Dell SonicWALL supports retailers looking to introduce or update systems to secure their business processes and data, or set up secure VPN connections for their branches and stores. The Global Management System (GMS) gives retailers a remote access solution for centralized monitoring and management of different appliances and applications. It offers network administrators unprecedented real-time insights into data traffic. Project experience with security solutions has shown that ease of administration can help to lower total costs. So retailers can keep their business up and running with the added bonus of predictable costs.

Dell SonicWALL provides network security and data protection solutions that enable customers and partners - around the world – to dynamically secure, control, and scale their global networks. The security solutions are smart enough to adapt dynamically as organizations and threats evolve globally. Leveraging its patented Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection technology in combination with a high speed, multi-core, parallel hardware architecture, SonicWALL enables simultaneous, multi-threat scanning and analysis and provides the technical framework that allows the entire solution to scale for deployment in high bandwidth networks. Solutions are available for companies of all verticals and sizes and are deployed in large campus environments, distributed enterprise settings, government, retail point-of-sale and healthcare segments as well as through service providers.
