Lately technology in the network security space has been through many dramatic changes. New mobile operating systems, growing use of personal devices, and Software-as-a-service (SaaS) delivery make securing the network a growing challenge. Enhancements in the network infrastructure that connect devices within or across the network make all these developments possible. With multiple network connection accessibility, more remote users, and extensive upgrades to mobile networks, such as adoptions in new technology, sophisticated adversaries, and disruptive regulation have placed cyber-risk high on every organization’s agenda.

AnexGATE ACE’s key feature deliverables in such scenarios include Multi-ISP failover & auto load balancing support with 2G/3G/4G data card/ADSL/broadband/cable modem/VSAT connections support. AnexGATE appliances secure both inbound and outbound data transfer through secure transmission tunnels and manage the VPN traffic by defining granular access rules based on VPN Users, Network addresses and location. It enables remote access users to simply connect with minimal configuration at the remote locations. AnexGATE ACE functions as VPN client to establish a secure tunnel to the AnexGATE VPN Concentrator server appliance at the main office.
