Cryptzone's Appgate Security Server Positioned in the Niche Quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for SSL VPNs

TEBORG, SWEDEN--(Marketwire - January 26, 2011) -

Cryptzone has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the "Niche" quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for SSL VPNs for its Appgate solution for secure network access. Evaluation is based on a vendor's ability to execute and completeness of vision.

Mobile working capabilities have become a vital component for improving worker productivity and achieving competitive advantage. Managing the upsurge in the use of corporate and personal mobile devices within the enterprise is particularly challenging, especially when there is a mix of operating systems for these devices.

Amongst its recommendations, the Gartner Report advocates clients to "start pilot programs for smartphone and tablet VPNs, even if you do not have an immediate implementation plan". John Girard, the December 2010 report's author, indicates, "There exists considerable variation in quality and capability among IPsec and SSL VPNs embedded in different smartphone platforms and offered by the leading VPN vendors."

Cryptzone believes that the Appgate Security Server strikes an inspired balance between SSL browser-based applications, which are easy to use, and the native network connectivity supported by IPSEC solutions. Cryptzone champions user- friendly, secure mobile connectivity from any type of device, including Smartphones and Apple Macs.

Cryptzone will further extend its mobile support with the release of the first app for iPhone® and Android®. In addition, Cryptzone will release a mobile application to generate a one-time password (OTP) as a simple and cost-effective option for two factor authentication.

"We believe our inclusion in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for SSL VPNs acknowledges the unique contribution that niche-players, like the Appgate solution, have in today's marketplace," says Peter Davin, CEO of Cryptzone Group. "The Appgate security technology is particularly suited to addressing device diversity in the modern enterprise and this integrated solution provides a great opportunity for increased global sales throughout 2011.

The Magic Quadrant considers which vendors will be in frequent use and will influence technology directions through 2015, as well as which vendors are most visible among clients, generate the greatest number of requests for information and contract reviews, and account for the most new and ongoing installations in Gartner's client base.
