Cyberoam has announced the integration of its SSL VPN solution on a virtual platform.
The company claimed that its SSL VPN solutions allow clientless browser-based access to geographically-distributed networks through common web browsers, with an ‘in-office' experience for internal applications including Microsoft Outlook, intranets, web applications and FTP.
Also, local desktops and laptops can securely traverse existing UTM firewalls in the network to access remote data services, without any risk of exposing the confidential information to hackers.
Harish Chib, vice president of the new business development at Cyberoam, said: “In our offering of VMware-based virtual appliances, customers get a virtual SSL VPN machine, available as a downloadable image, which obviates the need to buy a hardware appliance.
“We are aware there are other organisations that are still in a transition phase towards their virtualisation goals. For them, we offer two other options – a dedicated appliance and as a software installer that fits into their existing machines.”
