Page 1 of 1
Network software developer J. River Inc. Friday debuted its ICE.PPN, designed for use by desktop users on a LAN, remote offices, or "road warriors" who need secure access to UNIX corporate servers.
Unlike a virtual private network, ICE.PPN can secure data inside the LAN and from the client to the individual server, not just to the firewall. It can secure the connection regardless of whether a firewall is in place.
The tool secures data on corporate LANs, where more than 70 percent of security breaches occur, eliminating the need to install firewalls inside a LAN. It allows secure use of the Internet for transmitting confidential data, reducing telecommunications costs.
Initially ICE.PPN will support Solaris, Linux, AIX, SCO UNIX and UnixWare servers, as well as Windows 95, Windows 98 and Windows NT clients. Support for additional UNIX servers and Windows NT servers is planned.
A server license with 5 clients costs $1195.
