Connect your Network

Install an Access Tier or Connector in your private network.

  • Updated on May 16, 2024

SonicWall’s Cloud Secure Edge (CSE) has a flexible architecture that allows for two deployment models to connect to your private network, depending on an organization’s needs.

  • Option 1: Install an Access Tier to create a Self-hosted Private Edge
  • Option 2: Install a Connector to connect via CSE’s Global Edge Network

The Self-hosted Private Edge deployment is only supported in the Enterprise edition. Visit the product editions page on our corporate site for details on features and pricing.

The Access Tier is an identity-aware proxy and gateway that mediates access between entities on the internet and your internal services. Each Access Tier has a public IP address that is reachable from the internet and accepts inbound connections on the following ports: TCP 80 and TCP 443 (web services), TCP 8443 (infrastructure services), and UDP 51820 (service tunnels).
