Offers endpoint fingerprinting technology and centralised control of data
Security company AEP Networks has strengthened the security on its Secure Application Access gateway by integrating it with its Key Security and Management Hardware Security Module (HSM).
The move follows concerns about the highly sensitive data being held by cloud service providers and in company data centres.
AEP Networks has significantly enhanced the security and integrity of the cryptographic key system used to protect application access, bringing to market the most secure application access gateway, claimed the company.
AEP Networks’ Secure Application Access gateway also allows organisations to provide their employees with freedom to use a variety of devices from corporate PCs to their own iPad or Android tablets to access their centrally hosted Cloud applications, while maintaining security.
The company said each device and employee can be checked for full compliance with company security software policy during connection requests by using endpoint fingerprinting technology.
Centralised control of data also means that data will not be lost if devices are lost or stolen.
AEP Networks director Mark Darvill said sensitive and commercial data is increasingly under attack, and as users access critical applications and confidential sensitive data from work, home or on the move, security officers need to be one hundred percent confident that they are providing secure access.
Darvill said, "The integration of our Key Storage and Security HSM with the Secure Application Access gateway delivers Assurance that brings military levels of security to the enterprise. It gives security officers a greater degree of Assurance as they are generating, storing and managing the cryptographic keys in a secure, hardware-based device whilst providing legitimate users with the flexibility and access they need."
The Assurance based Secure Application Access gateway is available in three different licensing models: CloudProtect Assurance; LANProtect Assurance; and ServiceProtect Assurance.
