WatchGuard Secure Remote Access For Corporate Networks

WatchGuard Technologies : 29 June, 2010  (New Product)
SSL 560 secure VPN solution from WatchGuard provides concurrent secure access to corporate networks for up to 500 remote and mobile users
WatchGuard Technologies has launched a new SSL VPN solution aimed at large organisations with up to 500 concurrent remote and mobile workers. The WatchGuard SSL 560 is an easy to use, highly secure remote access solution that provides reliable connectivity to corporate networks, applications and data.

"Any device with a web browser can harness the power of the WatchGuard SSL 560 to securely connect to corporate resources," said Eric Aarrestad, Vice President of Marketing at WatchGuard Technologies. "By focusing on ease of use, the WatchGuard SSL 560 makes set-up, management and control of remote and mobile workers a breeze."

The WatchGuard SSL 560 comes ready to go, out of the box and with easy to use installation wizards, can be up and running in minutes. Because of its comprehensive authentication technology, the WatchGuard SSL 560 allows businesses the flexibility of defining user databases on-board the appliance, or integrating with other third-party authentication systems, such as LDAP, Active Directory, or Radius. And with robust logging and reporting capabilities, the WatchGuard SSL 560 provides a rich history of remote user information that gives businesses insight to better manage and adjust remote resources, applications and infrastructure needs.

For organisations that want to provide applications or tools to remote users, the WatchGuard SSL 560 offers delivery of non-native desktop and server applications such as SSH (Secure Shell) and RDP (Remote Desktop). This also adds support for in-demand applications such as Citrix XenApp and Outlook Web Access 2010 and ActiveSync from Microsoft that allows remote workers to securely access and work with applications as if they were in the office, from any location worldwide.

To help road warriors, WatchGuard provides Desktop Sharing and Remote Assist. This allows administrators or business channel partners to initiate connections to remote devices, such as laptops, from their helpdesk. They can then take control of and diagnose remote user issues quickly and easily, thus saving time and helping to keep road warriors productive in the field.

The WatchGuard SSL 560 provides unmatched security features for remote workers. With its new deep device examination and end-point integrity checking functionality, businesses can easily create and enforce security policies to ensure connecting devices have firewall protection and up to date anti-virus definitions so that only healthy and policy compliant devices are on the network.

Furthermore, the WatchGuard SSL 560 provides a web-based auto-loading access client that automatically loads after successful authentication. This eliminates the need to pre-install a client application on remote users' systems, while simplifying secure access to network resources.

Additional security can be utilized with onboard two-factor authentication. The WatchGuard SSL 560 can generate SMS-based tokens and one-time password (OTP) to a user's mobile device, such as a corporate mobile phone, smart phone or wireless PDA. This provides fast and secure two-factor authentication without having to use other third-party authentication solutions. However, for businesses that currently use external authentication methods, the WatchGuard SSL 560 supports over a dozen different authentication types right out of the box.

The WatchGuard SSL 560 also provides enhanced access client support including Microsoft XP, Vista and Windows 7 clients, as well as clientless access options.
