Sygate Technologies says that its policy enforcement ensures remote connections over a VPN are not exposed to hijacking of data. It ensures remote authentication is only made if the user conforms to the policy set in force. This makes a lot of sense.
What Sygate Secure Enterprise provides is the ability to maintain certain rules, even for remote users. These include whether their firewall is current and configured correctly, if the remote user's anti-virus is up to corporate specifications and, equally important, up to date. These are just a few example of areas where compliance may be required.
