VMware has announced their acquisition of NeoAccel. NeoAccel’s SSL VPN-Plus product line combines the performance of IPsec VPNs with the benefits of SSL VPN technology, including increased security, simplified management, and reduced cost of ownership. This acquisition will help VMware deliver on its endeavor to deploy secure private and hybrid clouds and offer secure access to applications and virtual desktops from any device, anywhere. An interesting side note, the founder of NeoAccel is Michel Susai. Michel also founded NetScaler. NetScaler is a SSL VPN appliance that was acquired by Citrix in 2005.
