Certification assures standard-compliance and interoperability

Reading, UK – 26 November 2007 – Stonesoft, an innovative provider of integrated network security and business continuity solutions, announced its StoneGate SSL VPN solution has received interoperability certification from the Virtual Private Network Consortium (VPNC), the international trade association for manufacturers in the VPN (Virtual Private Network) market. The certification assures that the StoneGate SSL VPN solution meets VPNC’s security criteria and standards and interoperates correctly with other technologies and products.

During the VPNC certification process, StoneGate SSL VPN proved to be interoperable with other technologies and products. To achieve certification, the product was tested for its interoperability in several categories, including SSL Portal, SSL Exchange, SSL Firefox, SSL JavaScript and SSL Basic Network Extension. For example, the SSL Portal test assures SSL VPN users that StoneGate SSL VPN will work correctly as a front end for a typical corporate portal application, and the SSL Exchange test assures it will work correctly as a front end for Microsoft Exchange Outlook Web Access (OWA).

“StoneGate SSL VPN met our strict certification criteria to the fullest”, said Paul Hoffman, VPNC Director. “This certification further confirms that the StoneGate SSL VPN is interoperable in many ways with the web browsers on the market.”

“Stonesoft has a long track record of delivering high-quality, standard-compliant security solutions. The VPNC certification further demonstrates our commitment to delivering our customers products that meet the highest industry standards and are securely and seamlessly interoperable with other solutions in the market”, said Pentti Lehtinen, Manager, Product Management at Stonesoft. “StoneGate SSL VPN concludes our offering for secure remote connectivity, allowing organisations to network and share business-critical information with their customers, partners and subcontractors efficiently and securely.”
