    Next Generation Network Access Technology core modules include Network Access Control

(NAC), Identity and Access Management (IAM), endpoint security (IPSec, SSL or hybrid VPN

gateway), VPN management and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI).

    "NCP's Secure Communications 

( technology is a prime

example of the next generation network access solution enterprises need. It addresses businesses'

pain points and reduces the burdens of large, complex environments, bringing the benefits of

secure network access without the management headaches," said Fran Howarth, Quocirca analyst.

"The enterprise security industry is evolving as a new generation of IPSec VPNs becomes

available. Organisations are now requiring a centrally managed, high security network access

solution with powerful personal firewalls to provide complete system and device coverage."

    - Central Management - Secure communications technology must be easy-to-use and simple to

operate. With a single point of administration, only one user interface and one console are needed

to manage mass-rollouts.

    - Network Access Control - Endpoint policy enforcement enables enterprises to specify access

parameters to the network system, forcing users without valid device configurations into a

quarantine zone.

    - IPSec and SSL Hybrid Support - Regardless of which VPN gateway is applied, a central remote

station, such as the NCP Secure Enterprise Server, is able to control both worlds. The

simultaneous support of IPSec and SSL protocols guarantees secure company communications in

every environment.

    - Open Standard Interface - The network access control solution supports all relevant operating

systems and VPN gateways, and an open standard interface reduces organisations' administrative

burdens as well as overhead costs.

    - Personal Firewall - An integrated, dynamic personal firewall with friendly net detection

automatically recognises safe and unsafe networks and regulates activity on these networks.
