Whale Communications e-Gap Webmail for MS Exchange
: "The e-Gap® Webmail Appliance provides a secure front end to Microsoft® Exchange (5.5, 2000 and 2003) enabling Outlook® Web Access from any browser anywhere in the world. As an application specific "SSL VPN," it is a cost-effective, rapidly deployable alternative to traditional VPNs. e-Gap Webmail protects against IIS vulnerabilities like Code Red and even unknown future exploits. There's no need to open dangerous holes in your firewall. The e-Gap Webmail Appliance also overlays strong authentication like RSA SecurID® Authentication and provides additional security features such as a patent-pending "secure log-off." Installation is quick and non-intrusive, requiring no intervention with production Exchange servers or firewalls. In addition to OWA access, support is available for secure remote access to the native Microsoft Outlook Client. 10:01:01 PM
SSL for remote access
: A "benefit of installing the SSL-based appliance is that Virtua has given its 3,000 employees who access e-mail remotely the ability to use the full Microsoft Outlook rather than the more limited Outlook Web client. .. By virtue of Netilla's gear, Virtua has avoided using IP Security (IPSec
) VPNs and the inherent hassles of distributing client software to remote machines." 9:56:56 PM
