AEP Networks has launched a service which it claims can protect corporate networks from infection by remote workers using unauthorised devices.
Version 7 of AEP's Series A product enables IT departments to monitor devices and applications accessing the corporate network to ensure that infected devices do not harm the system.
"Many firms want to let users work remotely, but are concerned over the security implications of unauthorised devices like PCs accessing applications and data in these programs," said AEP director Mark Darvill.
"Providing security against threats at a remote and local level for devices accessing a network and its data removes a lot of burdens for IT staff, and gives organisations the chance to let staff work more flexibly."
Darvill explained that the new product allows staff to access the network through a combination of standard two-tier user authentication and security authentication for the device itself.
"With Version 7 firms can allow users to access data without physically affecting it, but there is a still a recorded log of what they did during that session so they can work with the freedom as if they were on the corporate network," he said.
"Furthermore, even if a device is found to be infected, it can still access the network data, but will be quarantined from the network itself so as not to infect other users or the network."
Series A works through a virtual private network from firms such as Hyper V, Zen and VMware, which can provide access for up to 100,000 concurrent users, or as a hardware infrastructure that supports 10,000 users.
The product offers security up to FIPS 140-2 Level 4, which Darvill said makes it popular in the enterprise by offering government levels of security.
Pricing is based on a customer's needs, ranging from hardware appliances at £1,684 to £12,822, and maintenance pricing based on user licenses.
