SSL VPN Appliance Offers Mobile Access To The Cloud
Stonesoft, a provider of integrated network security and business continuity solutions, introduces the new StoneGate SSL VPN Virtual Appliance, SSL VPN 1.4 and SSL-1060 for secure mobile and remote access.

The StoneGate SSL VPN solution is ideal for organisations that need to easily provide controlled yet flexible remote access for their employees, partners or customers. The solution enables organisations to share information freely and yet have full control over who accesses the information, when and from where.

The StoneGate SSL VPN Virtual Appliance complements Stonesoft's network security solution for virtual environments. The new appliance allows rapid deployment and implementation of mobile access to cloud computing.

The more common Cloud Computing becomes in corporate business and virtualised datacenters, the stronger is the need for secure access to corporate applications in the cloud. StoneGate SSL VPN Virtual Appliance combines the need for granular access to the corporate web and legacy applications with the secure and authenticated profiling of users.

The StoneGate SSL VPN Virtual Appliance is based on Open Virtual Format (OVF) standard and provides multiple features that meet the needs of virtual environments such as strong authentication, a flexible application portal and support for Federation ID standards such as SAML 2.0 and ADFS. The appliance is compatible with both VMware's ESX/ESXi 3.5 and 4.0 (vSphere) versions.

StoneGate SSL VPN 1.4 offers organisations enhanced security provided by integrated mobile authentication methods, granular access control and a holistic view on access rights with a single integrated access policy.

"Authentication is very important if we need to allow local, remote and mobile users, partners, suppliers and other stakeholders to access data and applications. Unfortunately, too often it is taken for granted. Authentication is not just a matter of typing a username and password - instead, organisations should carefully plan how it is integrated with existing authentication systems. In many cases, solutions that provide access to corporate applications need to support extended authentication systems like Federated ID or advanced Single Sign On techniques for both web and legacy applications. These are just some of the key strengths offered by StoneGate SSL VPN," highlights Marco Rottigni, SSL VPN product manager at Stonesoft.

StoneGate SSL VPN provides easy management and administration of access control for all network users. Administrators can easily select the parameters, or a combination of parameters, that will grant or deny the access to applications. This includes sophisticated assessment and trace removal techniques to ensure that corporate security standards are enforced at all times, also for mobile and roaming users.

StoneGate SSL VPN includes also advanced logging, auditing and reporting features that help businesses meet industry, government and corporate regulatory compliance out-of-the-box.

The new StoneGate SSL-1060 appliance comes with the latest StoneGate SSL 1.4 software version, offering new features with respect to network integration and end point security such as the ability to configure port forwarding configurations and Ticket Single Sign On (SSO) enhancements.

The SSL-1060 appliance is designed for companies who need to provide a user base of 50 to 500 users with secure, authenticated remote access to business applications while ensuring best performance at all times.

Stonesoft introduces Spike licensing to all SSL VPN appliances. Spike licenses are temporary licenses used for increasing the number of users in emergency situations. For example, a second wave of H1N1 swine flu might keep employees at home or a nearby river flooding the office might prevent them from working there. In such cases, the ability to quickly increase the number of remote users becomes business-critical.

"Secure mobile and remote access to corporate data is not a luxury any more. In today's increasingly fast-paced business, it has become a necessity that determines who is going to succeed. The new StoneGate SSL VPN helps organisations to streamline their processes and provides tools for finding new business opportunities - without compromising security," said Klaus Majewski, vice president of marketing at Stonesoft.

StoneGate SSL VPN allows employees and partners to access more applications regardless of their location, using any web-enabled device. While this increases productivity, the network remains secure and protected from vulnerabilities. In addition, advanced features such as automated user account management ease the workload of the company's IT administration.

StoneGate Virtual SSL VPN Appliance, SSL-1060 appliance and SSL VPN 1.4 are available and currently shipping to customers.
