Enterprises across verticals welcomed Whale’s newest addition to its Intelligent Application Gateway product line, an appliance utilizing Microsoft’s Internet Security & Acceleration (ISA) Server 2004. The SSL VPN solution is a first in the market to deliver SSL VPN, IPSec VPN, endpoint security and application security components in a single secure Windows-based appliance.
“This solution is ideal for our needs,” said Colorado-based Regis University CIO Peter Greco. “There is a natural convergence of the technologies. Their unification enables us not only to provide, as we have been doing, our 17,000 students and faculty anywhere access via SSL VPN but we can now leverage our existing Whale solution to provide our satellite campuses with IPSec VPN access. Not only is it cost effective it allows us to further maximize our Microsoft application and server infrastructure while relieving a management burden on our IT professionals. We applaud Whale on its continued market vision to provide comprehensive best-of-breed access solutions.”
