CAMPBELL, Calif. -- Array Networks, a leading provider of secure application deployment appliances for Global 2000 companies, today announced the availability of the industry’s first true enterprise scale VPN appliance. Based on Array’s Security Proxy series SSL VPN platform, the Array Networks SPX Family of appliances provides the security and performance capabilities developed and proven in large-scale Global 500 deployments in a plug-and-play secure access solution for Global 2000 organizations.

The Array SPX2000 and SPX3000 SSL VPN appliances are the first SSL VPN products that bring network performance, reliability and scalability to SSL VPN access. The SPX family of SSL VPN appliances delivers a number of features that improve the administration and management of secure access including: virtualized portals, advanced VPN address management, URL aliasing, proxy compatibility, and enhanced Windows application support. These SPX enhancements improve upon the SP platform’s suite of network security and Web optimization functionality that includes SSL VPN access for Web and legacy applications, identity management, application-layer firewalling, and Web-based traffic management features.

“As enterprise adoption of SSL VPN has grown, so too have the requirements to support larger remote user communities. Essentially, large enterprises demand enterprise-grade attributes of scalability, reliability, and throughput traditionally associated with network-layer devices but in the context of fine-grained and optimized delivery of applications to a diverse remote user community,” Michael Suby, Senior Research Analyst at Stratecast Partners (a Division of Frost & Sullivan). “With the new SPX series, Array Networks is elevating network-layer performance to the application-layer.”

“Security is a primary challenge for enterprises when remotely accessing applications. But for application deployment projects to succeed, you also need to consider what the ultimate end user experience will be like,” said Michael Zhao president and CEO of Array Networks. “This means taking into account the fit with the existing infrastructure, the network and application performance and appropriate scalability. The secure deployment of applications to remote users is not just about security. It’s also about the end user experience”.
