ION Networks announced the release of the SA5600 1.2 Secure Appliance

SOUTH PLAINFIELD, N.J. -- Today ION Networks, Inc. (OTCBB: IONN.OB), a provider of remote management and secure access products, announced the release of the SA5600 1.2 Secure Appliance, the newest enhancement to its best-selling line of secure remote management and vendor access control products. The SA5600 1.2 Secure Appliance seamlessly connects service providers’ NOC tools to remotely managed devices in minutes, allowing for the delivery of next generation remote managed services, including: patch management, VoIP Quality of Service (QoS) monitoring, proactive device monitoring, fault management, backup/restore services, and disaster recovery services.

“For a long time, traditional IPSec and SSL VPNs were the only choice for remote management. Now, there is an alternative,” said Bill Whitney ION CTO. Significant growth in the managed services market spurred ION to develop and release the first SA5600 Secure Appliance in 2006. “The plug-and-play design provides the connectivity and remote management capabilities service providers need with the security and control features enterprise customers demand,” said Whitney. Unlike traditional VPNs, the SA5600 1.2 Secure Appliance requires minimal set up time, as no firewall configuration, clients, or agents are required. Additionally, the SA5600 1.2 Secure Appliance supports diverse connectivity types (including Internet, IP, broadband, and dial-up), allowing for the remote management of virtually any IT or voice application.
