Networking firm NCP Engineering has taken the wraps off the latest version of its software-based network security application.
The NCP Secure Enterprise Server 8.0 supports both 32- and 64-bit versions of the Windows operating system and offers a hybrid IPSec and SSL gateway to help monitor and control all VPN connections to and from the central data network.
The server is designed to allow end-users to securely connect from any device to the network over an encrypted, dynamic personal firewall, with strong authentication as well as one-time password and public key infrastructure support.
The system also boasts a new web interface allowing IT managers to view and instantly tweak parameters such as workload, IPSec and SSL tunnels and transferring rates.
The SSL VPN module has also been updated to provide support for Outlook Web Access (OWA) 2007 and can now allow web applications to function directly through the thin client module.
According to NCP, the platform will support up to 10,000 concurrent VPN sessions, and is designed to be integrated with the NCP Secure Enterprise Management System in larger deployments.
On the server end, NCP Secure Enterprise Server works with Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003, XP Professional and 2000 and will allow connections from any IPsec-based device, including the iPhone.
