Two security companies have joined forces to provide an Internet access solution based on the B1 security standard, for sites requiring maximum control on network access.
Cyberguard and Assurenet Pathways have integrated their products to offer two-factor authentication of remote users accessing a corporate system via the Internet. The Cyberguard Firewall range, which is certified to comply with the US National Computer Security Centre's B1 rating, will now come with Assurenet's Security Server and Securenet Keys. These are based on the Data Encryption Standard and provide two layers of user authentication based on passwords and individualised software 'keys'.
The integrated product is available now through Vars and systems integrators in the US, Europe and Japan. In Europe, the Cyberguard Firewall is the first firewall to undergo evaluation for the E3 security specification from ITSEC.
