Alberta Ingenuity Fund Deploys NeoAccel SSL VPN-Plus™ for Secure, Transparent Remote Access

High Performance SSL VPN Replaces Remote Control Access

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 1, 2007 -- NeoAccel, developer of the most advanced, high-performance network access solutions, today announced that Alberta Ingenuity Fund, a government-funded organization that funds technology research and development in the Canadian province of Alberta, has deployed its SSL VPN-Plus solution to enable transparent, fully secure access to network resources from any location.

Alberta Ingenuity Fund's users had relied on remote control products to provide connectivity between Microsoft Outlook clients and Exchange servers, but with people starting to dial in from hotels and airports, IT Administrator Iles Wade became very concerned about security and wanted a simpler solution. "I didn't want the management overhead of bundled operating system VPN solutions. After seeing SSL VPN-Plus, I talked with other NeoAccel customers and they were very pleased with it, so we deployed it and I've never looked back," says Wade. "Our users install easily the SSL VPN-Plus client themselves, and I haven't had to even think about the NeoAccel appliance since I installed it, except than to add users."

Wade also reports that users who had become aggravated with the old remote access process have gained new respect for the IT department. "SSL VPN-Plus has really made me some new friends among our user community," he said.

NeoAccel offers both clientless and client-based remote access, depending on application support requirements. SSL VPN-Plus's small, dynamically updateable client provides endpoint security validation and access to all of the Fund's applications and network resources. In addition, VPN-Plus's client enables NeoAccel's patented architecture, which eliminates performance degradation found in all other SSL VPN solutions. The result is an overall user experience far better than other IPSec or other SSL VPN solutions.

"Like Alberta Ingenuity Fund, many companies are now realizing the importance of adding security to their remote access," said Frank Guerrero, vice president of marketing at NeoAccel. "With SSL VPN-Plus, they can provide granular security not possible with IPsec VPNs while actually improving the user experience and significantly reducing administrative overhead."
