Aventail Secures Backing of VA Vendors.
Akaba, Foundstone, Qualys, Sanctum, and VIGILANTe are in a second round of security vendors lined up by Aventail as "policy enforcement partners" for its EPC-compliant EX-1500 SSL VPN appliance. Others include Bluefire Security Technologies, Foundstone, iPass, Swivel, Sygate Technologies, WholeSecurity, and Zone Labs.
The introduction of EPC is meant to help reduce risks by controlling access privileges based on who a user is, where they are, what device they are using, and what steps can be taken to protect them. Using EPC, access policy can be set for users coming in from a variety of end-points with different environments.
This latest round of partnerships will help "guarantee the security of Aventail's SSL VPN solutions on any network and with any application," the company claimed in a statement.
