COMPANY PRESS RELEASE: Secure Computing Corporation, a leading provider of enterprise access control solutions, and Filanet Corporation, a leading provider of innovative and integrated platforms and services for small and remote office networking, has announced they have successfully completed product interoperability testing.
Filanet’s InterJak Internet service appliance is now fully interoperable with Secure’s Sidewinder firewall and VPN gateway and SafeWord PremierAccess access control solutions. Small and remote offices that need to connect to the Internet and to headquarter offices can deploy a combined Filanet and Secure Computing solution to ensure the highest level of secure remote access.
Recognized as the world’s strongest firewall, Sidewinder is deployed at government installations and Fortune 500 companies across a wide range of industries. Sidewinder’s hybrid architecture combines stateful inspection, application filtering, IPSec-certified VPN and real-time intrusion alerts in a single software package. Small and remote offices with an InterJak appliance can now connect with Sidewinder-secured enterprises through a truly secure VPN connection.
SafeWord PremierAccess gives enterprises control over who can access their Web, VPN and network applications, and includes powerful capabilities like user self-enrollment, integrated authentication options and PKI support, role-based authorization, brokered authentication to external systems. With its built-in RADIUS support, the InterJak can authenticate users with Secure Computing’s SafeWord PremierAccess, ensuring user integrity at the small or remote office site.
Secure Computing is the expert when it comes to designing and implementing security solutions for today’s complex and expanded networks, said Dore Rosenblum, vice president Worldwide Marketing. By supporting Sidewinder and SafeWord PremierAccess, we have added to the business-class features on the InterJak to allow secure information flow with the enterprise.
As the number of small offices and remote branch offices deploying broadband grows, it is essential to ensure the integrity of VPN connections, said Chris Peterson, vice president, global channel and OEM sales at Secure Computing. The InterJak has proven itself to be one of the most robust small office networking solutions available. With this announcement, geographically distributed offices with the toughest security demands now have an affordable solution that was previously available only to enterprises.
