Remote networking with a NETASQ firewall is easier than ever for Mac users.
Lexington, MA − November 09, 2004: equinux USA, Inc., a renowned provider of software designed
specifically for the Mac OS X platform, announced today compatibility
between their market leading VPN client software, VPN Tracker, and
NETASQ's IPS firewall series. Remote networking with a NETASQ firewall
is easier than ever for Mac users who can now share files, databases
and emails over a secure Internet connection.
Setting up a
virtual private network (VPN) connection is a cost efficient and simple
way for companies to maximize security without compromising the
requirements of remote access. Since 1998, NETASQ has developed IPS
firewall and VPN security solutions, focusing on the network security
needs of a wide range of departmental sites, service providers and
remote users. By operating a NETASQ IPS firewall together with VPN
Tracker, Mac users can remotely access company networks without the
possibility of security breaches.
"The VPN Tracker client is
the ideal solution for businesses that require secure connectivity
between remote Macintosh users and their central offices. It allows
businesses to benefit from the wide range of features and high
performances offered by NETASQ's IPS-Firewalls", said Matthieu
BONENFANT, Product Manager at NETASQ. "A simple NETASQ profile that has
been predefined in VPN Tracker's user-friendly GUI allows creating a
VPN tunnel between a Macintosh client and a NETASQ IPS-Firewall with
just a few mouse-clicks. NETASQ is charmed by equinux approach of
profile selection because it considerably reduces installation costs
and eliminates configuration errors."
With a user-friendly
interface, built in how-to guides and compatibility with most third
party solutions, VPN Tracker has firmly established itself as the
worldwide leader in VPN client software for the Mac OS X platform.
Utilizing IPsec protocol for data encryption, the software creates a
secure VPN tunnel over the Internet to a NETASQ IPS firewall, allowing
branch and home workers to securely access their company's Intranet.
