Protecting users from Firesheep and other Sidejacking attacks with SSL

Netilla Networks yesterday announced enhancements to its SSL VPN appliances, to make them more flexible and versatile.

Release 4 of the Netilla Security Platform has two important new capabilities: secure access
to enterprise intranet and Web applications via an HTTP reverse proxy, and desktop client/server application access via Netilla's Virtual Adapter. The Virtual Adapter allows users to exchange data with central servers from any PC-based applications through a SSL tunnel.

The features augment Netilla's existing ability to provide clientless browser-based remote access
to server-based legacy application running on mainframe, UNIX, Linux and Microsoft Windows servers.

Unlike IPSec VPN , SSL VPN usage requires no end-user configuration - just access to a Web browser. This makes installation and set-up far cheaper.

According to META Group, SSL based products will occupy 80 per cent of the remote access market by 2005/06, relegating traditional IPSec VPNs to second fiddle. Competitors include Aventail and Whale Communications.

Release 4 of the Netilla Security Platform will be generally available worldwide in June through Netilla's channel partners. Suggested end-user prices start at $10,000 for the B-class, $30,000 for the E-class and $65,000 for the new G-class platform. ®
