SonicWALL Announces SSL-VPN 200 Appliance
One of the companies that I really like to work with right now is SonicWall. They have great products, a great partner program and very good customer service. I think that their firewall products really do a great job in combination with an SBS box that even runs ISA Server 2004.
However, this little box may be a great little sell for the SMB out there that wants simple VPN capabilities with no mess or fuss. The SonicWALL SSL-VPN 200 is a great little box that has an SSL web page that clients can go to and get right into applications without the need for pulling down a VPN client. It's very secure and for the price of $595 for the 5-10 user 200 version is a great little piece for the SMB out there.
I've been a Citrix guy for a long time and their SMB access Essentials product does a lot of the same stuff. But put one of these Sonicwall boxes onto the network and you get similar technologies. However you still have to remember that the SBS box doesn't allow terminal services in application mode so that extra server may still be necessary if you want apps shared over the business. However you can't get any easier for a VPN than this.
