TAIPEI -- Billion Electric Co., Ltd., a major international network communications equipment manufacturer, today unveils a World first an SSL VPN Security Appliance series with integrated router and firewall functions BiGuard S10 (SSL VPN Security Gateway) and BiGuard S20 (Dual-WAN IPSec/SSL VPN Security Gateway). The first available product, BiGuard S10, is an all-in-one security gateway with SSL VPN, designed for small and medium business (SMBs) users looking for secure, cost-effective and clientless remote access to the corporate network.
For the first time SMBs can experience all the benefits of secure communications without the need to pay for expensive corporate enterprise solutions and without buying an extra router, hardware or separate firewall device. With easy setup and management there is no need for dedicated IT personnel either (when compared to traditional IPSec VPN solutions, SSL VPN is much easier for operators to use and maintain).
Edward Kung, Managing Director of Billion in UK says: Our BiGuard three-in-one integrated SSL VPN, router and firewall is a highly cost-effective SMB solution with all the features and power of a corporate solution without the high price tag and setup/management complexities.
SMBs know they need secure comms links, but in the past they have been scared off by the £1000-plus cost. Now, for the first time, they can have an all-in-one advanced solution for around a third of that.
Secure Socket Layer VPN without VPN client pre-installation has been deployed widely in larger corporate networks to manage remote Intranet access. Due to its nature of security and portability, SSL VPN is functioning as a secure alternative to IPSec VPN.
