ABSTRACT
This article reports that Apani Networks, a provider of in-depth security solutions for enterprise and small-to-medium business, has launched the Apani Networks Virtual Private Network (VPN) Client version 3.1.1 for secure connection to Nortel VPN Routers. This version adds support for Linux Kernel-Source 2.6. Apani Networks VPN Client establishes secure connections to the Nortel VPN Router gateway from multiple operating systems including the latest versions of Linux, as of July 2003. This client software enables user-level authentication, virtual Internet Protocol address assignment, NAT traversal, and remote policy update and administration. The VPN client also provides for granular control of access policies and denial or termination of client connections. System administrators installing the VPN client can use pre-configured files for setting address and security parameters. A customizable client appearance will enable information technology (IT) administrators to provide user name and password authentication screens for database authentication or Radius Authentication for user identification. Use of Digital Certificates and RSA SecurelD is also supported. Apani Networks is a leader in enterprise and Server Message Block IT network security, shielding the network from attacks and providing in-depth protection for critical network data.
