By Anuradha Shukla, TMCnet Contributor
Secure communications and networking specialist AEP Networks (News - Alert), and VASCO Data Security introduced a solution that combines AEP Netilla Secure Access Gateway (News - Alert) with VASCO DIGIPASS authenticators.
Through this limited time promotional offering, Netilla customers in North America will receive two complimentary VASCO DIGIPASS authenticators and VASCO customers can enjoy a free download of the Netilla Virtual Edition with two user licenses.
The companies claim that a combination of these offerings can provide end-to-end security to ensure data privacy of users. In addition, this combination will also offer support for HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, and FDIC mandates for two-factor authentication.
In order to attract more customers, the companies are offering a special discount for the DIGIPASS Authenticators for AEP Netilla.
The Netilla SSL VPN is an application access gateway that facilitates secure, Web browser access to a variety of business applications. Also available in a virtual edition, this gateway allows remote users to quickly and securely reach virtually any application in today's IT environment.
VASCO Data Security is a software security company specializing in authentication products. Its DIGIPASS authenticators properly authenticate users through the use of one-time passwords, and thus safeguards access to e-business and e-banking applications and corporate networks.
Under the agreement, the DIGIPASS plug-in is natively integrated into the Netilla product line, and this allows simplified user management from one database without the need for an additional server.
Customers who want to activate VASCO's strong authentication for Netilla, can simply do it by launching the CD-ROM provided with the promotional package. If you are an AEP Networks' customer, you can easily roll out VASCO's strong authentication solution to your entire user population by acquiring additional DIGIPASS authenticators.
'The proliferation of remote and mobile workers has put an extreme burden on IT departments. The ability to give remote workers access to information and applications while meeting the most stringent security standards necessitates the strong authentication offered by AEP and VASCO,' said Paul Spencer, general manager for AEP Networks.
