It was difficult to extend our IPSec VPN beyond IT-controlled site-to-site environments, said Pat Beemer, IT Manager, Seattle Lighting. After reviewing Cisco and Microsoft Remote Access Service, SonicWALL Aventail 9.0 was our clear choice for remote access control. With fourteen retail stores and 500 people throughout the Northwest and China, Aventail provides us with secure remote access from any unmanaged device throughout our distributed management system.
