Remote worker VPN secure connectivity with WatchGuard.

Wick Hill : 31 March, 2008  (New Product)
Working remotely through web browsers or thin clients can now be achieved with strong security using WatchGuard SSL product range from Wick Hill.
Wick Hill is now shipping WatchGuard's new remote access solutions, designed to give remote and mobile workers unparalleled, highly secure connectivity to their corporate network. The new appliances, the WatchGuard SSL 1000 and WatchGuard SSL 500, offer a dazzling array of enterprise-class remote access features, optimised for today's world of mobile devices and network authentication options.

Ian Kilpatrick, chairman of Wick Hill, WatchGuard's largest worldwide distributor, commented: 'Remote and mobile working is continuing to mushroom with over 70% of businesses using it. That growth generates significant and increasing demand for easy, fast, inexpensive and secure access to company networks. WatchGuard's SSL provides a solution that not only supersedes historic SSL solutions, but also provides first-rate connectivity and security features.'

For enterprise organisations that need to provide highly secure remote connectivity for a myriad of mobile devices and platforms, the WatchGuard SSL 1000 and 500 are highly secure remote access solutions that utilise web browsers or thin clients, end-point integrity checking, network interface control, as well as virtual desktops and session cleanup, to deliver business applications right to the user for maximum productivity. Unlike competitive SSL VPN appliances, the WatchGuard SSL 1000 and 500 deliver the most comprehensive array of authentication, identity management and security features, as well as support for the broadest number of devices, giving companies the most secure remote access solution via the broadest set of access options.

World renowned for award-winning unified threat management (UTM) network security solutions, WatchGuard is making use of its security heritage and advanced technology leadership to forge cutting-edge stand alone appliance that incorporate cutting-edge security with the functionality of UTM appliances. The new SSL 1000 and 500 devices work side-by-side with WatchGuard UTM products, or can be deployed in a mixed, heterogeneous network environment.

Multiple features make the new WatchGuard SSL VPN appliances ideal for mobile-rich, heterogeneous application environments. Key features include:.

* Clientless SSL VPN Access - eliminates hassles of having to install proprietary software on every client device, while giving employees full remote access to all their applications;

* Single Sign On - allows users to seamlessly access information without having to repeatedly re-authenticate, which reduces help desk issues and enables users to be more productive;

* Federated Identity - allows for sophisticated environments, such as business-to-business networks or company/departmental relationships, to give users seamless access to multiple or disparate resources;

* Endpoint Integrity - examines every user device before it connects to the network, which reduces risk and provides for contiguous integrity and enforcement of security policies;

* Administrative & Management features - with real-time scanning capabilities, automatic session cleanup, ActiveX and Java client support, as well as consolidated and comprehensive audit capabilities, administrators will appreciate having full control over remote workers.

WatchGuard SSL 1000 and 500 appliances are available now from accredited Wick Hill resellers from GBP 1995.

As an incentive, WatchGuard will include its new SSL VPN appliances as part of its appealing 'Trade Up' program that gives generous discounts to WatchGuard customers with legacy systems looking to upgrade, as well as to customers with competitive products who are looking for a superior
