This year, cyberattacks are expected to rain down at a rate of more than 117,000 per day, adding up to more than 42.8 million total incidents. As these attacks are launched and subsequently investigated, the root cause of many of them will turn out to be the result of employee action – basic human error – such as accidentally violating a remote access policy.
With these figures in mind, the new report “Security Solution Vendors 2015,” conducted by German analyst firm techconsult, analyzes the entire network, data, storage and endpoint security landscape, while identifying top providers and solutions that are on the front lines protecting businesses from these 42.8 million attacks.
The report bodes well for NCP engineering and our remote access VPN solutions.
Techconsult found that NCP “dominates” the network security space, while highlighting how NCP’s Secure Enterprise Solution “win…clearly against the competition” from other VPN solution providers. This assessment is reflected by NCP’s presence in the “Champion” quadrant, comprising all security solution vendors, based on evaluations from the market and users, as well as experts.
NCP also earns a “Champion” rating when only network security vendors – those with VPN, external firewalls and Unified Threat Management (UTM) solutions – are assessed. NCP is the top solution provider in this quadrant, and we stand out for our 100 percent user satisfaction rating.
In the Virtual Private Network quadrant, NCP again earns top marks and a “Champion” rating, with the report noting, “NCP has been able to set itself above the rest with the experts’ evaluations based on its excellent solution assessment as well as its company-specific framework conditions.” Specifically, techconsult graded VPN solutions on these features:
- Transfer protocols supported by the provider
- Possibility for multi-factor authentication
- Provision of high availability
- Other relevant and possible VPN functions
- Data compression
- Integrated firewall
- Monitoring of data volume and connection times
- Mobile integration
- Regular updates
- Seamless roaming
Given the volume and severity of current threats to network security, NCP engineering is proud to be recognized by our customers, experts and by techconsult as one of the leading providers on the front lines, keeping corporate data safe. We will continue to deliver remote access VPN solutions that network administrators expect from Champions.
