How to Select an SSL VPN for Remote Access to Microsoft SharePoint
The Whale Intelligent Application Gateway with SharePoint Application Optimizer is the only SSL VPN solution specifically designed for SharePoint. The Whale Intelligent Application Gateway complements the Microsoft Internet Security & Acceleration (ISA) Server 2004 solution for securely publishing SharePoint (and Exchange) by providing additional security elements, integrating third-party applications into the portal and publishing to unmanaged endpoints without requiring a component download. The gateway provides browser-based access, endpoint security including the Attachment Wiper session residue shredder, and the ability to host multiple portals on a single gateway. By leveraging these capabilities, customers can expand the availability of SharePoint to a broad range of users and access scenarios, entrenching its value as a collaboration platform.
