Array Networks Introduces Next-Gen Secure Access Gateways
New AG1000 Series supports 256 virtual portals, 128,000 concurrent users, 3.2Gbps SSL throughput and a per-user policy engine.
Array Networks Inc., a global leader in application delivery networking, has announced the immediate availability of its next-generation AG1000 Series Secure Access Gateways that offer unmatched performance, scalability, flexibility and value as compared to competing solutions. Consisting of four new appliances that leverage Array's award-winning, 64-bit SpeedCore architecture, the Array AG Series offers an unbeatable combination of features that allow enterprises, mid-market businesses and cloud service providers to securely and cost-effectively meet the demands of an increasingly mobile workforce.
Today's businesses need to support an entire workforce that wants to use personal devices, tablets and smart phones as productivity tools. Secure, anytime-anywhere access across the organisation is needed to increase efficiency, mitigate business disruptions and meet growing trends in mobile and remote working. Moreover, businesses require differentiated secure access for employees, partners, contractors and guests, and the ability to securely connect to the cloud and manage cloud services.
Aligned with current trends in virtualisation and extracting maximum value from IT infrastructure investments, the AG Series supports up to 256 virtual portals on a single appliance. AG Series virtualisation 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.
"India is one of the key global markets where we are launching the AG series because of the huge potential and pressing customer demand for a highly robust and scalable Secure Access Gateway," said Shibu Paul, National Sales Manager - India at Array Networks. "This launch elevates Array Networks into a league of its own with unmatched concurrent uses scalability and a product line-up designed to meet the needs of business and service providers of all sizes. Our partners and customers are equally excited about the new solutions and opportunities Array's new Secure Access Gateway product line enables. "
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 organisation 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.
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 login 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 proven 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 the fastest and most cost-effective path for organisations 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."
