Array Networks Launches AG Series Secure Access Gateways
Mar 13, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Array Networks Inc., a provider of application delivery networking, announced the immediate availability of its next-generation AG 1000 Series Secure Access Gateways.
Consisting of four new appliances that leverage Array's 64-bit SpeedCore architecture, the Company reported that the Array AG Series offers a combination of features that allow enterprises, mid-market businesses and cloud service providers to securely meet the demands of an increasingly mobile workforce.
Array said the AG Series supports up to 256 virtual portals on a single appliance. AG Series virtualization allows enterprises and service providers to create fully separate and fully secure user communities, each with their own look-and-feel and each with their own access policies, access methods and resources for various business units, partners, contractors, guests, administrators and tenants. The AG Series also features a per-user policy engine capable of creating a custom secure access experience for individual users. For example, administrators and developers may be allowed increased bandwidth, while C-level executives may be allowed more registered devices and greater flexibility in accessing sensitive data.
Scalability & User Experience
The AG Series supports up to 128,000 concurrent users, 3.2Gbps SSL throughput and high-performance 2048-bit encryption to ensure that every mobile and remote user across the organization receives a premium, productivity-enhancing experience. Secure access to applications and resources may be provided via a Web portal or a Layer 3-4 client from anywhere on any device, including workstations, laptops, mobile phones and tablets running local, remote, wired or wireless.
Secure Cloud & Mobile Computing
AG Series scalability addresses the increased adoption of cloud services in the enterprise. The AG Series prevents employees from directly accessing cloud services by providing a central point of control. Using the AG Series as a secure access gateway to the cloud, employees log in using single sign-on (SSO) and see cloud services as web links that are indistinguishable from web applications provided from the enterprise data center. Leveraging the AG Series, business can create a seamless experience for employees, establish accountability across all applications and reduce IT service support.
The AG Series also allows employees to access their office desktops (either physical or virtual) from any iOS or Android smart phone or tablet. Leveraging remote desktop protocol technology, AG Series appliances ensure that data never leaves the network and never mixes with personal data on mobile devices. As a result, the AG Series represents a path for organizations to enable mobility and support a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) strategy.
"I'm extremely pleased to announce Array's new AG Series Secure Access Gateways," said Michael Zhao, president and CEO of Array Networks. "The new AG Series is a rapidly-deployable, cost-effective solution for secure access across a full range of devices and access methods that delivers the highest levels of performance and scalability. Strengthened by new capabilities in cloud and mobile computing, this new product line allows businesses to ensure security and compliance while giving employees the freedom to be productive wherever and whenever works best."
