New version of hybrid IPSec/SSL VPN gateway from NCP
NCP engineering announced a new version of the software-based NCP Secure Enterprise Server for Windows. A hybrid IPSec and SSL gateway, the solution controls and monitors all VPN connections to and from the central data network. The server ensures that end-users can securely connect from any device to the network with powerful encryption, a dynamic personal firewall, strong authentication, and one-time password and public key infrastructure support.
The NCP Secure Enterprise Server features a new Web interface that offers network administrators a view of critical VPN parameters, such as workload, IPSec and SSL tunnels and transferring rates – all in real time. The gateway provides one plug-in for full remote network access.
The software solution’s SSL VPN module updates include:
- The Web Proxy and File Access module is compatible with Outlook Web Access 2007 and can display the extended view of OWA in connection with Internet Explorer
- Web applications function directly through the Thin Client module. The gateway works with Java applets and plug-ins, as well as ActiveX
- The NCP PortableLAN module (Fat Client for transparent network access) supports Public-Key Cryptography Standards certificates.
The NCP Secure Enterprise Server 8.0 allows administrators to maintain network speeds and run up to 10,000 concurrent VPN sessions.
The new version of the server is also scalable, enabling enterprises to easily tailor and upgrade the VPN. The gateway can be completely integrated with the NCP Secure Enterprise Management System for extensive installations. It supports a wide variety of endpoint platforms (Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003, XP Prof. and 2000) and any IPsec-based device, including the iPhone.
