product details

Astaro Secure Client (ASC) ensures the highest levels of security for VPN connections by providing an IPSec VPN client. Advanced encryption algorithms protect the entire network against unauthorized access. Strong user authentication methods ensure that only authorized users are able to access the central VPN gateway. An integrated dialer simplifies operations and a personal firewall prevents hackers from taking over the client and creating a "backdoor" into the main network.

With the strong user authentication and end-to-end encryption, ASC ensures that mobile workers, home workers, and remote offices can communicate securely over the Internet with a central VPN gateway. An integrated stateful packet inspection firewall protects the user's computer from its initial start-up, even if the VPN connection is not yet established. Automated Hot-Spot detection dynamically opens only those ports needed for Hot-Spot-Login. Astaro Secure Client also includes an integrated dialer to simplify operations and improve the security of the remote systems.
