PLEASANTON, CA – Feb. 12, 2013 — MegaPath Corporation, one of the leading providers of managed data, voice, security and hosted IT services in North America, today announced enhancements to its Remote Access SSL VPN services. Built on Fortinet’s platform, this solution enables companies of any size to offer employees secure access to corporate applications and documents, regardless of their location.
In today’s corporate environment, more employees are leveraging insecure Wi-Fi connections, like those offered at coffee houses and hotels, to access corporate networks. MegaPath’s solution helps ensure that traffic from these networks is secure from unauthorized view. Remote Access SSL VPN delivers cloud-based anywhere-access and extranet capabilities for authorized remote users, including access to corporate applications and data files. Employees connect through a Web browser and use their corporate usernames and passwords for full access to any resources on the corporate LAN. They can securely use their smartphones, tablets or PCs to access the VPN, enabling them to check their emails and calendars, as well as use applications no matter where they are.
“Whether employees are out of the office for routine business or because of inclement weather, they need a secure, reliable way to access corporate files and applications and keep business running smoothly,” said Dan Foster , President, Business Markets, MegaPath. “While traditional options like IPsec VPN solutions meet certain business needs, they do not provide the secure anywhere-access that today’s business environment demands. MegaPath’s Remote Access SSL VPN resolves that issue by delivering an SSL-based access solution that is easy to deploy and manage.”
MegaPath’s Remote Access SSL VPN works in conjunction with its MPLS network and can be seamlessly integrated into a network environment in less time than it would take to build an infrastructure solution and eliminates the need to buy or manage a remote access system. In addition, all traffic over the MPLS VPN is encrypted, protecting it from access by unauthorized users. MegaPath also provides complete monitoring and detailed reporting, helping customers maintain compliance with regulatory mandates including PCI DSS.
With MegaPath’s Remote Access SSL VPN services, customers have access to a cost-effective, scalable and fully-managed solution on MegaPath’s “Secure to the Core” nationwide network. In addition, MegaPath manages and maintains the equipment and provides 24/7/365 network monitoring, management and support, extending the cost savings even further.
