SOMERSET, N.J. -- AEP Networks, the leader in policy-based networking, announces the AEP Netilla Security Platform (NSP) Release 5.6 - the industry's first and only SSL VPN to include integrated load balancing to provide geographical site failover for business continuity.
Business continuity and disaster recovery planning has become a major area of interest because of the impact of recent disasters - both small-scale and large. Remote access to company applications via SSL VPN can help companies be more resilient after catastrophic events and is a viable component to a comprehensive disaster recovery plan.
Geographical Diversity Configuration:
In the NSP Release 5.6 the standard load-balancing configurations now enable geographical load balancing, providing load sharing and failover between independent NSP clusters in geographically diverse data centers. It is configurable by the enterprise as active-active for organizations self-insuring against a failure in their owned data centers or as active-passive for customers using a standby/backup disaster recovery facility service, such as those provided by IBM or Sungard.
This is a global, high-availability load balancing solution, for large-scale, multi-site deployments, supporting up to thousands of concurrent users. With this highly scalable solution, AEP Networks is targeting mid-tier and larger enterprises for remote access and application security on a global basis as part of their business continuity planning.
