Vasco Adds SSL-VPN to aXs Guard

Vasco Data Security International has added SSL-VPN functionality to its award winning aXs Guard Authentication Appliance

LONDON -- Vasco Data Security International, Inc. (Nasdaq: VDSI) (www.Vasco.com), the leading software security company specializing in authentication products, today announced that it has added SSL-VPN functionality to its award winning aXs Guard Authentication Appliance. The company added that it will showcase this product at Infosecurity UK (London, UK, 24-26 April, www.infosecurity.co.uk ), the leading information security trade show (Stand: E230).

aXs Guard (www.axsGuard.com ) is Vasco's authentication appliance product line. Based on Vasco's renowned VacMan authentication platform, aXs GUARD combines Digipass strong user authentication with a range of over 20 Internet communication services.

aXs Guard's key markets are the global Enterprise Security market, for both SMEs and larger corporations + the small and middle sized banking sector. aXs GUARD services include:

  • Firewall
  • Content scanner & filter (web & mail)
  • Anti-virus (Trend Micro)
  • Anti-spam
  • Anti spyware
  • Anti phishing
  • Intrusion detection & prevention
  • Active system attack monitoring
  • Reverse http & ftp proxy

    SSL-VPN stands for Secure Socket Layer Virtual Private Network. This is a web-based encrypted network that uses a public network (the Internet) to simulate a private workspace (the company's internal network). An SSL-VPN can be compared with a secure tunnel through the Internet that securely connects a remote worker with the corporate network. It is a necessity to secure the access to the tunnel too. Strong authentication is a flexible, versatile and easy to use tool to lock the SSL-VPN from unwanted visitors.

    Currently, "traditional" VPN is already embedded in aXs Guard. By introducing SSL-VPN as an add-on, Vasco offers companies a secure growth path to the next phase in their evolution. Whereas traditional VPN only works on controlled environments such as corporate PCs, SSL-VPN allows employees to use work stations that are not controlled by their employer, such as hotel or cyber bar PCs).

    "By reinforcing our aXs Guard product offerings, we state our claim to be the leading software company, specializing in authentication products," said Jan Valcke, Vasco's President and COO. "Thanks to aXs Guard, companies don't need to invest in a multitude of locally hosted e-security and e-communication software. The centrally managed aXs Guard product range offers enterprises, regardless of their size and occupation, a smooth growth path, without having to feed an army of IT-engineers to update and protect the corporate network."
