IPSec VPN Client
The IPSec VPN client provides the vital ability for remote users to initiate VPN communications with corporate resources. Using VPNs, "road warriors" or
telecommuters can safely access corporate networks from unsecured public networks or un-trusted local networks. A VPN connection can also be used to
connect end users that need a secure "end user to host" connection to transmit sensitive information over an intranet. The IPSec
VPN client used in conjunction with firewall-to-firewall gateway VPN Connection provides a total IPSec VPN solution. The IPSec VPN
client meets IPSec standards.
Designed specifically for the mobile work force, the IPSec VPN client provides the vital ability for remote users to initiate
VPN communication with corporate resources. Road warriors and telecommuters need to access mission critical networks over the Internet
and often use unsecured public networks or untrusted local networks. A VPN connection may connect end-users that need a secure host to
transmit sensitive information. The IPSec VPN client uses the IPSec ESP tunnel mode to form a secure communications channel to a network
secured by a GTA Firewall. It provides VPN capability to desktop and notebook computers running Microsoft Windows, OS X, and Linux
operating systems, enabling secure client-to-gateway communication over TCP/IP networks. Secured encrypted communications can be
initiated in any IP environment.
Mobile Phones and Tablets
Secure remote IPSec VPN access isn't limited to desktop and laptop computers. Mobile phones and
tablets running Apple IOS and Android operating systems have built-in IPSec VPN facilities that
interoperate with GTA firewalls. A secure IPSec VPN connection to a mobile device means that
email and an organization network resources can be available from nearly anywhere. Our guides for
