Ever caught yourself working late at the office thinking “if only I could access my work machine from home I would be there now?” Ever been on the road with your laptop wishing you could access company files, even print out documents on your company printer? Do you have a need to securely transfer files from one place to another, without people having to learn how to use complex file transfer applications?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you could be in need of a Virtual Private Networking (VPN) solution. VPN solutions have been available for some time, but up until now, you had to be a networking genius to make it work.
Now there is a VPN solution that anyone can use.
When we were designing WinGate VPN, we looked around at a number of other products. Most were very difficult even for us to set up, let alone someone who isn’t a network expert. We decided that most of the configuration of a VPN shouldn’t have to be such a burden, and should be done automatically. Most people just want the thing to actually work, and be able to trust it. Yet they don’t want to sacrifice flexibility or features either.
In a very short space of time, WinGate VPN allows you to connect your networks together, whether they be office LANs, or a home PC, or a laptop on a modem, so they can share data safely and securely. Using state of the art security protocols and tunnelling technologies, WinGate VPN will make sure that you can participate in a remote network, almost as easily as if you were plugged into the same hub. Depending on individual set up, users can access common local area networking features such as file and directory exploring, mapping drives and even participation in LAN games.
Easy to set up
Whether you are running WinGate VPN as a stand-alone system, or integrated with an existing WinGate installation, WinGate VPN is one of the most easily configured virtual private networking products available today. Set up in a matter of minutes, WinGate VPN can utilize most Internet connection types such as modems, wireless, ISDN or ADSL to create a secure private networking environment across the Internet. It will even work through your corporate firewall or NAT/DSL router or both!
Since you will be connected to the Internet, WinGate VPN also comes with a built-in firewall to protect each end-point of the VPN. WinGate VPN also comes complete with real time monitoring, showing details of all VPN connections that are in progress, and the current status of the VPN tunnels. With a point and click style Network window, administrators have total control over each part of the communication process, and can easily check that the VPN is operating properly at a moments notice.
Extra support for MS Networking
WinGate VPN makes it easier to browse using network neighbourhood across your VPN without having to set up and configure expensive MS server platforms or WINS servers. UDP relay broadcasting makes all your networks look like they are on the same physical network segment.
WinGate VPN uses industry-standard and trusted SSL connections and X.509 certificates to connect and validate your VPN users. It uses 128 bit Twofish-encrypted data tunnels to provide the security and speed you want. With various licensing options for different networking structures WinGate offers the flexibility you require.
- Companies who need secure inter-office networking.
- Home users who wish to set up a secure peer-to-peer connection between remote PCs.
- Home or Mobile workers, who require a secure environment to connect to the office from remote locations.
