AppGate offers free VPN download

Wants to help companies deal with swine flu epidemic

By Steve Evans

AppGate has announced free version of its Security Server access control and VPN software to help companies cope with contingency planning against the swine flu epidemic.

Businesses can download AppGate Free Edition, a fully-functional virtualised version of AppGate’s secure VPN software, which will be licensed for up to 20 concurrent users and can be expanded to 50 users for 50 days for £990.

The software is compatible with almost any computer hardware, AppGate claims, and can be downloaded and deployed in two hours.

UK government figures suggest that up to one in eight employees could be hit by swine flu over the coming months and the British Chambers of Commerce has advised businesses to offer workers to opportunity to work from home. This should help businesses to maintain continuity during the swine flu epidemic.

AppGate’s Security Server contains an application-layer firewall, fixed and mobile VPN  capability, role-based access and endpoint security control. The platform replaces the traditional centralised firewall with a set of distributed firewalls installed on all clients and servers and controlled centrally and configured dynamically to allow or deny network traffic.

“With AppGate Free Edition and the Business Continuity Licence, any organisation can exploit the complete security functionality of the AppGate suite to help them deal with contingencies that affect business-as-usual. It’s fast and easy to deploy and manage, ensuring that companies can react quickly to changing conditions,” said Tomas Olovsson, CTO of AppGate.
