cNetScreen Technologies, Inc. has announced the availability of the NetScreen Secure Meeting appliances, dedicated Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)-based appliances designed for secure, cost-effective online meetings and application sharing sessions.
The NetScreen Secure Meeting appliances are intended to enable enterprises to provision online meetings, remote desktop support, and conferencing sessions to hundreds of concurrent users per system without the potential security trade-offs and recurring costs of hosted services or software-based extranet deployments. By applying an infrastructure approach to user-to-user sessions, the Secure Meeting appliances enable enterprises to take greater control over authentication, authorization, and auditing (AAA), and can prevent confidential information from leaving the network undetected or the transfer of infected files via P2P file sharing. Built on the Neoteris Instant Virtual Extranet (IVE) platform, the NetScreen Secure Meeting appliances feature: Application Sharing; Policy-Based AAA and Password Management; Central Management; Delegated Administration and Scheduling; Audit Queries and Filters; Clustering and Fail-Over; Customizable User Interface; and Platform Support.
The new NetScreen Secure Meeting (SM) appliances are now available-NetScreen-SM 3010, 3020, and 3030. The NetScreen Secure Meeting functionality is also available for purchase as a license upgrade to the NetScreen Secure Access appliances. The NetScreen Secure Meeting appliances can be managed from the NetScreen-SM Central Manager product.
