Icon Labs to Distribute Menlo Logic’s AccessPoint SSL VPN Solutions

3/29/2004 - Icon Labs (www.icon-labs.com) a leading provider of embedded networking solutions, and Menlo Logic (www.menlologic.com), the leading developer of advanced SSL VPN software for security and network equipment vendors, announced that the parties have entered into a reseller’s agreement under which Icon Labs will distribute Menlo Logic’s AccessPoint SSL VPN solutions. SSL VPNs provide transparent remote access from any network device anywhere in the world by enabling secure communications through a standard web browser. By 2006, SSL VPN based solutions are expected to be the dominant method for remote access.

“We are excited to add Menlo Logic’s AccessPoint product, the only complete commercial SSL VPN solution, to our suite of security and network management products”, says Alan Grau, president of Icon Labs. “SSL VPN software is a natural extension to our existing SSH and SSL protocol solutions, enabling us to provide our clients with a comprehensive set of embedded security products.”

Menlo Logic's products enable OEMs to quickly and easily integrate SSL VPN functionality into a wide range of networking devices including access routers, firewalls, content switches, intrusion prevention devices and wireless access points. The AccessPoint SSL VPN Toolkit provides an intuitive web user interface for remote access and administration, extensive client and application support, fine-grained access policies, user, group and global bookmarks, and single sign-on support--eliminating the need for users to re-authenticate.

“The AccessPoint SSL VPN Toolkit allows OEMs to rapidly develop and bring to market best-in-class SSL VPN products”, says Kasey Cross, CEO of Menlo Logic. “Icon Labs, a recognized leader in the embedded market, will strengthen our sales and channel initiatives and help establish AccessPoint as the industry standard for SSL VPN technology. Icon Labs’ experience providing software, services and support to OEM vendors will enable us to deliver a more complete solution to a wider customer base.”

Icon Labs and Menlo Logic will showcase AccessPoint SSL VPN at the ElectronicaUSA Embedded Systems Conference San Francisco, March 30 – April 1, 2004, in Icon Labs’ booth #1639.

AccessPoint SSL VPN is now available for the Linux, Solaris and BSD operating systems and can be easily ported to other platforms. AccessPoint supports remote desktop and application access, web-based FTP and file sharing, web and HTTPS proxy, TCP Tunneling for email client support and Telnet and SSH terminal access. An optional authentication package includes RADIUS, LDAP, Active Directory and NT Domain authentication.
