NCP engineering’s Remote Access VPN Solutions Now RSA SecurID Certified

NCP engineering today announced that its secure remote access VPN clients and gateway have been certified SecurID Ready by RSA, the security division of EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC). With the certification, NCP has renewed its RSA partnership, and its remote access solutions, including the NCP Secure Enterprise Management (SEM) system and NCP Secure VPN Clients are available to the more than 25,000 enterprises using SecurID as an authentication mechanism.

This certification and partnership creates improved authentication and access control that can be applied enterprise-wide, with two-factor authentication that utilizes randomly generated one-time passwords. RSA customers can use their tokens in conjunction with NCP’s line of highly-secure hybrid IPsec/SSL VPNs, to safeguard remote access to the corporate network.

Key Facts

  • The NCP Secure Enterprise Management (SEM) system includes NCP’s enterprise IPsec VPN client suite, a scalable, hybrid IPsec/SSL VPN gateway, and an administration system to support organizations’ entire remote access infrastructure. The NCP SEM solution secures all communications to the corporate network while also allowing IT administrators to monitor for anomalies and centrally manage issues as they arise, including immediately revoking access in case of a breach.
  • The NCP Secure Entry Clients bundle data encryption and certificate support through a public key infrastructure (PKI). Leveraging, among other security components, a dynamic personal firewall and Friendly Net Detection, which determines whether a user is on a known and trusted network, they ensure that every access point to the Internet becomes a safe, secure point of entry to the network. The clients are also compatible with every gateway and major operating system, including Windows 8/7, Android 4.0+, Linux and Mac OS X Mavericks and Mountain Lion.
  • RSA’s SecurID is an authentication mechanism developed to provide a one-time password for two-factor authentication for a user accessing a secure network resource. It uses tokens, either hardware or software-based, to generate authentication codes at fixed intervals that must be an identical match to the code being displayed by a network resource at the exact time of an access request.

Supporting Quote

  • “NCP engineering has always been an avid believer in having strong, robust network security and partnerships,” said Patrick Oliver Graf, General Manager, NCP engineering. “With our RSA SecurID certified products, it’s easier than ever for EMC’s RSA customers to provide highly secure remote access to end users. With the rigorous requirements in place for achieving SecurID certification, network administrators will have the peace of mind knowing that users, accessing the corporate network remotely from anywhere and on any device, will be completely protected.”
