Visit Netilla with Signify at Stand 35 * Visit Netilla with Allasso at Stand 795

29th April 2003, London - Netilla Networks, Inc., a leading provider of SSL-based virtual private network (VPN) products for secure Web-based access to any centralised application, has partnered with Signify, a provider of Secure Identity Management and Authentication services, to deliver a secure, simple and affordable solution to the challenges of remote access.

Visitors to Stand 35 will see a working demonstration of a comprehensive, secure, remote access solution using Netilla’s SSL VPN solution and the Signify Authentication Service.

The growing need for secure remote access applies not just to employees based outside the enterprise – who may be working either from home or on the road – but also to a company’s partners, suppliers and customers who need access to corporate data over the public and private network. Furthermore, users face multiple corporate applications, e-business interfaces and Web services, many of which require a unique user name. As a result, an individual typically possesses not one but several digital identities.

It is critical for companies to manage and control authorised identities to ensure that the right people are given access to the right information seamlessly, regardless of location. Organisations must assess their identity management needs to develop a reliable solution that can integrate into the existing IT framework. John Stewart, CEO at Signify, comments, “To date, only large organisations with 500+ remote users and 24x7 helpdesks could afford to run genuinely secure remote access systems. The solution developed by Netilla Networks and Signify makes ‘corporate strength’ secure remote access affordable and accessible to organisations of all sizes, from as few as five people.”

The Netilla Service Platform provides highly secure remote access to legacy applications using the SSL encryption provided by standard Web browsers, providing companies with a rapid-deployment solution that does not require extensive modifications to existing application servers and security mechanisms. Reggie Best, president and CEO of Netilla Networks, comments, “This marks a significant advance over existing VPN alternatives by eliminating the time and cost of installing VPN client or application software on the remote user’s PC.”

But delivering secure identity management requires more than just technology. Through its partnership with Signify, Netilla can provide its customers with even higher levels of security by implementing policy-based procedures to ensure that their users’ on-line identities are secure and can be trusted at all times. The Netilla SecureRealm FrameworkÔ, which allows the creation of multiple authentication and authorization user realms, allows the Signify solution to be seamlessly integrated with the Netilla Service Platform.

Delivery of these solutions is managed through joint channel partners. Paul McKinley, director at LANsition, a specialist integrator concludes, “With our Netilla product range and Signify’s managed authentication service, this partnership enables LANsition to offer a complete, end to end secure remote access solution to the enterprise”.
