LONDON -- CRYPTOCard (www.cryptocard.com), the leading authentication technology developer for heterogeneous environments, has formed an alliance with AEP Networks, the leading vendor of SSL VPN solutions, to make it simple to combine the benefits of highly-secure two-factor user authentication with the simple and
flexible remote access capabilities of a SSL VPN.
By making it simple to seamlessly integrate two distinct purpose-built solutions, CRYPTOCard and AEP Networks provide improved functionality over alternative offerings that utilize less secure methods for implementing a SSL VPN. In leveraging the extensive knowledge of each others technologies the combined CRYPTOCard/AEP Networks offering meets the rigorous demands of highly-secure networks and IT systems. The two companies will jointly develop channels to market and collaborate on key customer projects.
"We have already sold the combined solution to a number of our customers, with very pleasing results," said Willie McKee, Managing Director of Business and Scientific Services Limited, one of Ireland's leading system integration companies. "Many of our clients are Government and Public Sector based and so demand the highest possible standards and quality," McKee continued. "We have been working with both AEP Networks and CRYPTOCard for some time now and so for us this is a perfect alliance - which we expect will improve an understanding of the benefits and acceptance
of more secure SSL VPN offerings."
