NCP Engineering Releases Secure Enterprise Management Version 3.0

SEM 3.0 enables two-factor authentication with a one-time password

Mountain View, CA – December 11, 2012 – NCP engineering today announced the availability of a new version of its Secure Enterprise Management (SEM), software that streamlines the tasks of remote access to a few clicks. Built around the all-new NCP Advanced Authentication, SEM 3.0 enables powerful Two-Factor Authentication with a One-Time Password that users receive via SMS. Each password is created by a random number generator within the NCP Advanced Authentication Connector and is automatically canceled after use. This eliminates the need to use third party solutions and enables Two-Factor Authentication with only a mobile or smartphone.

Key Facts

· With the new NCP Advanced Authentication, SEM 3.0 elevates the security of the entire NCP Secure Enterprise Solution, which is comprised of a VPN client suite, hybrid IPsec/SSL VPN server and the remote access VPN management system.

· The NCP Secure Enterprise Solution is a 100% software solution developed from the ground up to be interoperable with all major network-layer security technologies, including VPN gateways and firewalls, preventing vendor-lock pitfalls. It also supports the broadest range of end device platforms, including Windows 8/7/Vista/XP, Windows Mobile/Phone, Android, Mac OS X, Mac iOS, BlackBerry, Symbian and Linux.

· As a centrally controlled solution, SEM 3.0 provides a single point of network administration for a company's entire IPsec and SSL VPN network, in addition to full Network Access Control (NAC) management. Administrators are able to provision and configure remote access capabilities to help prevent "bandwidth hogging" and wireless data consumption fees.
