Kaon secures access to Netilla

A MERGER of two security vendors has left Kaon Technologies with a new set of security appliances to represent in New Zealand.
Kaon has had the agency to distribute AEP Systems’ VPN products for about a year, but the company merged with Netilla Networks last December to form AEP Systems.
Now Kaon is bringing the Netilla range of SSL (secure socket layer) VPN appliances into the country.
Managing director Tony Krzyzewski says the range is ideal for the New Zealand market and is already being rolled out at five local sites.
“The products are very suited to New Zealand-sized sites. The sales that have been made already were to companies ranging from small to very large corporates,” he says.
Netilla’s Security Platform range provides three levels of secure access in a single box. These are remote access to applications on web servers, thin client access to Windows Terminal Services and Unix/Linux boxes, and SSL tunnel connectivity.
“All the clients run as web clients, so there is not a requirement to load a remote client,” Krzyzewski says.
“Some pretty advanced technology allows us to create a virtual computing environment on the remote machine and clear that down once the session is terminated. It allows users to safely come in from a shared public computer into the network and make sure their information is not left on the remote computer.”
