SonicWALL UTM, IPSec VPN Solutions Certified Interoperable with Select Avaya Products

By Patrick Barnard, Senior Web Editor, TMCnet

Virtual private network and security solutions provider SonicWALL (News - Alert) Inc. announced today that its Unified Threat Management and IPSec VPN solutions are now certified compliant with select IP communications products from Avaya (News - Alert) including Avaya Aura Communication Manager Branch 2.0; Avaya Aura Communication Manager 5.2 with Avaya Aura SIP Enablement Services 5.2; and Avaya IP Telephony Infrastructure using Avaya IP Office 4.2 in a converged VoIP and data network.

"These certifications with Avaya (News - Alert) broaden the scope of SonicWALL's participation in the VoIP market space and validates our UTM solutions in securing networks supporting voice, video and data," said Patrick Sweeney, vice president of product management with SonicWALL, in a release. "With SonicWALL's UTM solutions, our customers have the security, control and access necessary for managing today's converged networks."

SonicWALL's TZ, Network Security Appliance and E-Class NSA series product lines integrate firewall, UTM, wireless and VPN technology to deliver comprehensive protection and maximum performance to customer networks.

One of the companies benefiting from the interoperability of SonicWALL and Avaya solutions is Office Solutions, a business that specializes in designing and implementing converged voice and data solutions.

"Using the SonicWALL product for our interoffice connectivity and our Avaya PBX (News - Alert) made our installation less time consuming and seamless," said Ron Mazzaccaro, vice president for Office Solutions. "It made it easy to turn up our five locations with the SonicWALL NSA product line. Everything works perfectly."

SonicWALL is a Gold member of the Avaya DevConnect (News - Alert) program. As such it is eligible to submit products the Avaya Solution Interoperability and Test Lab in Lincroft, N.J. for compatibility testing. There a team of Avaya engineers develops a comprehensive test plan for each application to verify whether it is compliant with Avaya established standards.

"By offering compliance testing to the many innovative companies like SonicWALL who are members of our DevConnect program, Avaya promotes fully interoperable solutions that help businesses unleash powerful new possibilities," said Eric Rossman (News - Alert), vice president, developer relations and technical alliances, Avaya. "They are able to use unified communications to connect employees and customers to information from wherever they are, over whatever device they have available -- getting more out of their multivendor network and delivering new value to their bottom line."

Last week XO Communications (News - Alert) announced that its XO SIP service is now compliant with Avaya’s Aura Communication Manager and Aura SIP Enablement Services.
