SecureWire 50 delivers unique solution combining secure remote SSL VPN access with SafeWord strong authentication tokens tightly integrated with Microsoft Active Directory

Secure Computing Corporation, the experts in securing connections between people, applications and networks today announced the availability of its  SafeWord SecureWire 50 identity and access management (IAM) appliance the remote access, authentication and compliance hub for small and midsize enterprises.  The SecureWire 50 provides secure SSL VPN-based remote access for as many as 50 concurrent users, with an add-on module that can accommodate up to 100 concurrent users. 

The SecureWire solution provides secure anytime, anywhere access to critical data and applications, providing a broad range of access and identity capabilities, including Web-based remote access via SSL VPN, wireless LAN management, endpoint device security, as well as internal Network Access Control (NAC). SafeWord strong authentication tokens are included with the SecureWire solution. These tokens are typically used together with a remote access solution to positively establish the identity of users entering the network. Organizations that are deploying a remote access solution no longer have to look to different vendors for these key components of an IAM solution.

For small and midsize enterprises that are looking for an SSL VPN remote access solution, the SecureWire 50 provides lightning-fast, remote access to every application and data resource in the organizations network.  Midsize organizations need a reliable, secure gateway for users accessing the network from remote locations.  The SecureWire 50 provides an easy-to-use remote access solution at an affordable price and broadens Secure Computings IAM technology lineup that now encompasses small business to large enterprise -- in an IAM market that IDC values at $5 billion by 2010.   With tight integration to Active Directory, the SecureWire 50 is ideal for the growing number of small and medium enterprise that manages IT in a Microsoft environment.  Companies can easily manage user identities by leveraging their existing Microsoft tools and applications. 

Weve been a Secure Computing partner for years and have always been a believer in their products and vision for security," said Anthony Giandomenicao, president and chief technology officer of Secure DNA.  "Our SME customers have been telling us they need to provide secure remote access for their user base and be able to track and enforce access policy.  The SecureWire 50 gives our customers high-performance SSL VPN access to their networks and lets them manage policy for every user from any device.  It also came with a proven authentication solution bundled in, which was an added benefit from a cost perspective.

Identity and Access management solutions such as SecureWire are key components of any corporate IT infrastructure. Without the ability to manage identities and control access, companies leave themselves open to a wide range of internal and external threats. With embedded end-point security capabilities, SecureWire provides a reliable mechanism to achieve configuration compliance ensuring that every end-point device adheres to corporate IT policy, including work PCs, laptops, home PCs, servers and workstations. Only properly configured, properly secured devices are granted access, making certain that system patches, anti-virus software and firewall protection are all in place.

Our channel partners and their customers who want to provide secure remote access to key corporate data and applications for their employees and business partners want fewer vendors and easier solutions, said Jay Goldlist, vice president and general manager of Identity, Access and SMB Products for Secure Computing.  The SecureWire 50 combines secure remote access through SSL VPN with SafeWord two factor authentication tokens in one appliance form factor. With close integration to Microsoft Active Directory management tools, it is easier to integrate into an existing infrastructure. Aimed at the entry point of the market, it offers a great solution with a lower total cost of ownership.

SecureWire can simplify access, management, and compliance for any organization, from branch offices to large enterprises. Any organization that extends their information assets to internal and external users can benefit from SecureWire.
