FirePass SSL VPN
Deliver flexible and secure access for remote users
Remote users want fast, easy access to corporate resources from everywhere: homes, airports, hotel rooms, coffee shops, and guest networks. But to ensure that i
nfected laptops and mobiles devices don’t log in directly to the corporate network, IT departments need to provide secure, remote access and have the flexibility to scale it as demand requires.
The FirePass SSL VPN—available as an appliance and in a Virtual Edition—provide security, flexibility, and ease of use. It grants access to corporate applications using a technology that everyone understands: a web browser. Users can have secure access from anywhere they have an Internet connection, while FirePass ensures that connected computers are fully patched and protected.
Secure Mobile Access Using Mainstream Technology
SSL VPN is overtaking IPSec as the standard for secure remote access to corporate applications. This shift in standards combined with the increasing use of mobile devices to access corporate application resources is putting more emphasis on the need for secure remote access control policies. SSL VPN can help ensure that client user logon and access privileges are defined and controlled by corporate access policies.
You can deploy FirePass SSL VPN using both virtual and physical appliances to create a fully flexible and adaptable remote access solution. This hybrid approach ensures your architecture maintains flexibility and scalability while meeting the changing needs of your virtualized environment, especially in disaster recovery and business continuity scenarios.
Secure Remote Access Across a Wide Variety of Applications and Devices
FirePass provides robust, secure SSL VPN remote access to business applications from a wide range of client devices, including Apple iPhone and Windows Mobile devices. Using full-tunnel SSL technology and client access policies defined by system administrators, remote clients can log on to corporate business applications under pre-defined access permissions and client directory control.
Simple, Secure, and Cost-effective Access — from Any Location for Any User to Any Application
FirePass offloads server-based security processes and access controls to free up valuable server cycles, while clustered scalability and availability features support thousands of concurrent users and failover services. FirePass can also run virus checks prior to user logon and set defined access controls to the client device during logon, to ensure secure access compliance. Group policy enforcement allows administrators to require non-corporate devices to comply with company policies. Non-compliant clients can be quarantined and passed to DMZ management processes for compliance updating. FirePass also supports Application Ready Access, providing full reverse-proxy services for market-leading application portals including SAP, Oracle, Microsoft, and others.
