AEP Systems Rolls Out Secure Sockets Layer VPN with Windows Terminal

5/1/2003 - AEP Systems, the high-speed security solutions company, announces the release of AEP SureWare A-Gate 1.2, a secure sockets layer (SSL) VPN product with new Windows Terminal Services capability. AEP SureWare A-Gate provides secure, remote access to internal applications and resources, offering the best value-for-money appliance of its kind on the market.

"Users can work from home, on the road or even at an airport kiosk or Internet café using AEP SureWare A-Gate," said Rob Lane, VP of Product Management at AEP Systems. "With today's product release, employees can access the corporate resources they need to work efficiently and effectively when they are away from the office."

In a report published by Infonetics Research, analysts predict that the SSL VPN market will surge to $871 million in 2005. "Application-layer VPN products attempt to solve a deployability and management problem that many IPSec VPN users face," said Jeff Wilson, Infonetics director. "Application-layer VPN products offer an easy-to-manage, easy-to-deploy solution in these environments. SSL also makes good sense in the extranet environments, as it gets around the uncomfortable problem of installing software on computers that don't belong to you."

Today's release of AEP SureWare A-Gate 1.2 includes increased performance, enhanced authentication schemes and extended key management. However, the most significant addition to version 1.2 is Windows Terminal Services access, which completes the A-Gate Anywhere feature set. It extends clientless remote access beyond just Web-centric applications and allows users to avail of other corporate resources from any standard Internet browser. Applications such as Microsoft Outlook, Lotus Notes, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel and legacy applications are made available to users with no requirement to pre-install client software on their computers.

AEP SureWare A-Gate is priced at $5000, making the hardware appliance ideal for corporate and government departments and for small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs).

"SureWare A-Gate is a perfect solution for SMEs, individual government or corporate departments or large companies wanting to enable remote access without undue overhead," said Lane. "Typically these organizations have one IT person who can easily deploy and manage SureWare A-Gate with minimal time and effort."
