NCP engineering has signed an agreement that brings remote access VPN solutions to thousands of resellers. The agreement initially focuses on Tech Data's channel of SMB solution providers in the U.S. and Canada, offering the NCP Secure Entry Clients through the distributor's Advanced Infrastructure Solutions (AIS) division. For larger deployments, the NCP Secure Enterprise Solution is also available across the channel. Tech Data joins NCP's growing partner roster, expanding the network through which its VPN products are available to businesses of all shapes and sizes.

The Tech Data/NCP engineering agreement provides the missing piece in the end- customer's VPN environment with an easy-to-use and reliable VPN client.

The NCP Secure Entry Clients work with all leading VPN gateways and firewalls, offering resellers the opportunity to sell or cross-sell an enhancement as part of a complete solution or previous salemaking the value-added benefits to all parties undeniable.

As businesses experience growth over the coming years, the need for reliable network security solutions will continue to rapidly increase, NCP engineering and Tech Data customer Ryan Lipschitz, vice president, Engineering of Virtual Graffiti, said. It's great to see two of our channel partners join forces. Together, NCP and Tech Data will broaden the availability of VPN solutions that remove all user complexity and maintain reliable connections for our end customers.

To support the relationship, NCP has established an office in Clearwater, Florida, where Tech Data's headquarters is located.

The NCP Secure Entry Clients are compatible with leading VPN gateways and firewalls from Cisco, Check Point and Fortinet, and with desktops, laptops and tablet PCs running on Windows operating systems 8.x, 7, Vista or Windows Mobile, as well as OS X Clients for OS X 10.10 Yosemite, OS X 10.9 Mavericks and OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion and Android 5.x and 4.x.

The NCP Secure Enterprise Solution includes NCP's enterprise IPsec VPN client suite, a scalable, hybrid IPsec/SSL VPN gateway, and a management system (SEM) to support organizations' entire remote access infrastructure. The NCP Remote Access solution secures all communications to the corporate network while also allowing IT administrators to monitor for anomalies and centrally manage issues as they arise, including immediately revoking access in case of a breach.
