NeoAccel Pioneers Virtualization Solution for Internet Security
NeoAccel, Inc., the fastest growing remote workforce solution (VPN) company with customers including Xerox, Alcatel-Lucent, Videocon, Tong Yang, Moserbaer, etc. today announced the VMware version of its flagship product, SSL VPN-Plus®. SSL VPN-Plus Gateway is the only 3rd Generation VPN able to replace IPSec and to supersede conventional SSL VPNs which suffer from the TCP-over-TCP meltdown and degraded client-server application performance. Potential VPN buyers can download and evaluate a fully functional version of SSL VPN-Plus from the company's website at

"VPN buyers love the convenience of being able to download our VPN appliance. Network administrators can experience the user and management interfaces and actually observe how SSL VPN-Plus fits within their current network setup -- all without the logistics of a hardware appliance. Most prospects are up and running within 15 minutes," said Michel Susai, Chairman & CEO of NeoAccel. "This unique distribution method allows more people to experience the 3rd Generation VPN with performance enhancing and patented ICAA technology." In addition, NeoAccel has seen a strong demand for VMware products from its worldwide systems integrators in Germany, Japan, and the US.

NeoAccel's comprehensive offering of SSL VPN-Plus under VMware consists of 3 separate options: 1) SSL VPN-Plus & NAC-Plus™ running on an existing VMware Server platform; 2) SSL VPN-Plus Evaluation Virtual Appliance for the VMware Player; and 3) Globally Managed SSL VPN-Plus Farm for ASPs/MSPs/ISPs.

  1. SSL VPN-Plus and NAC-Plus can now be purchased as virtual appliances and run on a VMware ESX Server. Network administrators get all the benefits of a virtualized infrastructure including on-demand replication, scalability, and backup of the VMware environment without the hassles of buying and maintaining hardware. SSL VPN-Plus on VMware is ideal for disaster recovery situations by being able to replicate one SSL VPN-Plus image to many and provide 100x the number of normal concurrent users on demand. In addition, virtualization ensures minimal downtime when making changes to your remote access infrastructure. Upgrade and test a second SSL VPN-Plus gateway in tandem, without disrupting your production gateway. SSL VPN-Plus for VMware is available at NeoAccel's standard licensing rates of between $50-$200 per concurrent user depending on quantity.
  2. SSL VPN-Plus Evaluation Virtual Appliance enables prospects to download and try an active version of SSL VPN-Plus using VMware player, effectively turning any laptop or extra lab computer into an SSL VPN-Plus Gateway, in under 15 minutes. After signing up at, and receiving email verification, users obtain an unrestricted 10 concurrent user license for 30-days. After a soft release a month ago, NeoAccel has seen very strong interest including from Fortune 500 companies.
  3. For ASPs/MSPs/ISPs, NeoAccel provides 10Gbps SSL VPN performance on the SGX-5200 appliance which enables service providers to take advantage of the VMware operating environment -- provisioning, cloning, and managing  SSL VPN-Plus Gateways on the fly with a global manager. This enables MSPs/ISPs to offer their customers compartmentalized, secured access with flexibility & scalability. The SGX-5200 supports up to 128     individual virtual machines. The SGX-5200 appliance list price is $19,995 plus the cost of concurrent user licenses per virtual gateway.

All versions of SSL VPN-Plus on VMware are fully functional SSL VPN-Plus gateways purposefully built as a zero administration IPsec replacement. Standard features include clientless & full access clients, End Point Security, GUI administration, Mobile VPN, Secure Desktop support and more. NeoAccel plans to expand its virtualization offering by making SSL VPN-Plus available for other virtualization architectures in the near future.
