NCP engineering Launches Comprehensive Cloud VPN Offering for Hosting Providers

NCP engineering today announced that it now supports hosting providers who want to offer comprehensive IPsec / SSL VPN through a SaaS model, alleviating the management headaches associated with traditional hybrid VPN deployments. Available today, the NCP Secure Cloud VPN Offering packages NCP’s full line of next-generation remote access software, and makes it readily available and easy to deploy in any cloud hosting environment.   

NCP’s unique hybrid VPN technology is ideally suited for cloud offerings by providing true multi-tenant, modular software able to manage 10,000-plus concurrent IPsec / SSL VPN connections by a single administrator. The NCP Secure Cloud VPN Offering is 100% compatible with all relevant networking technology and device operating systems, allowing hosting providers to simply layer the software onto existing technology, and avoid painful and expensive upgrades or replacements. With a less than $6,000 investment, hosting providers and system integrators can get started with the NCP Secure Cloud VPN Offering.

How the NCP Secure Cloud Offering Fits Hosting Scenarios

  • Managed Service Provider (MSP) Hosting
    The multi-tenant software architecture allows MSPs to run a single instance of the NCP Secure Enterprise Solution on their cloud to manage hundreds of unique VPN systems. This includes managing the gateway and firewall needs of each MSP customer. Tens of thousands of clients can be provisioned, updated and managed from a single MSP administration.
  • Enterprise and SMB Hosting
    The modular software architecture of the NCP Secure Cloud VPN Offering enables companies that are moving resources to a public cloud or hybrid cloud environment to migrate the complex management processes off-site. The unique interoperability of the management software makes managing the complete remote access VPN environment easy. It’s the enterprise’s decision where the VPN gateways or the management console is located, at the hosting provider or in the enterprise itself.

"Data centers are the usual targets for virtualization; however, network-layer technologies have evolved as strong virtualization contenders. By moving bulky management and administrative tasks to the cloud, companies have yet another avenue to streamline,” said Rainer Enders, chief technology officer, Americas, NCP engineering. “From a hosting provider’s vantage, the ability to virtualize traditionally hardware-only VPN systems provides a new, strong line of revenue generation.”
