Review: SonicWall Secure Mobile Access 210 Secure VPN Delivers Powerful Protection

Easy to configure and use, the 210 series is built with small and midsize businesses in mind.

Effective IT security is challenging to achieve in any environment, and for any company. According to one report, 90 percent of companies fail to detect, contain and resolve cyberthreats within an hour.

That slow response time is driven in part by two underlying problems: high turnover rates among cloud-security professionals (which 73 percent of organizations report experiencing) and difficulty finding the right security tools (which 77 percent of organizations acknowledged is a challenge).

The bottom line: Increasingly complex cybersecurity is contributing to the inability of many companies to meet IT security demands.

A mobile workforce further complicates the security landscape for many businesses. In a mobile work world, the number of devices that IT teams must now account for is staggering. This requires more security policies to create and manage the numerous security gaps that criminals can exploit.
