First National Bank Chooses NCP Engineering As VPN Client Software Provider

Highly secure data connection, personal firewall offers IT staff flexible work options
Boston-December 9, 2008-Leading provider of endpoint security and VPN solutions, NCP engineering GmbH (www.ncp-e.com), today announced it has become the provider of VPN client software for Pennsylvania-based First National Bank. The Bank chose to adopt the NCP Secure Entry Client for its stable IPSec tunnel and powerful encryption to securely allow remote staff to access the network from anywhere.

"We have a mixed OS environment and several of our staff work from home on occasion, which adds another layer of complexity to our VPN," said Brian Hughes, network administrator, First National Bank. "NCP engineering offered the most intelligent, compatible client on the market, and we haven't had any problems since installation."

The bundled NCP 32/64-bit Secure Entry Client, which is compatible with Windows Vista, provides First National Bank with a single software solution that integrates data encryption, a dynamic personal firewall, Friendly Net Detection, and one-time password token and certificate support through a public key infrastructure (PKI). The dynamic firewall allows First National Bank to set policies for ports, IP addresses and segments, as well as applications. The Friendly Net Detection, created by NCP engineering, forces the network to identify itself to the device, preventing any data packet transfer until a safe network has been detected. Configuration and policy logic are easily set and managed centrally or through the NCP Secure Entry Client itself.

A 30-day trial version of the NCP Secure Entry Client offering unrestricted use is available online at: http://www.ncp-e.com/en/downloads/software.html.
