NCP Continues Award Streak for Remote Access VPN Products in 2013

At NCP, we’re committed to helping organizations overcome the complexities of managing, maintaining and securing remote access, no matter how simple or complex their remote access environments are. And while positive feedback from customers is always a good thing, it’s equally rewarding to be recognized by industry-leading associations and magazines, as was recently the case on two separate occasions. Last week, NCP engineering was named a finalist in the ‘Best New Product or Service – Software –  Security Solution’ category in the prestigious 2013 American Business Awards. Further establishing its leadership in the industry, NCP was also named a ‘Gold’ winner in Security Products‘ Govies awards, which honor outstanding government security products in a variety of categories. NCP’s award-winning Secure Enterprise Management (SEM) 3.0 solution was recognized in both programs for its single point of network administration to control organizations’ entire IPsec and SSL VPN networks and its full Network Access Control (NAC) management. SEM 3.0 grants organizations the ability to provide unparalleled network security with NCP Advanced Authentication, which enables powerful Two-Factor Authentication with a One-Time Password that users receive via SMS from the NCP Advanced Authentication Connector. This eliminates the need for enterprises to use other third-party solutions, instead enabling Two-Factor Authentication with only a mobile phone. It also supports a broad range of operating systems, including Windows 8/7/Vista/XP, Windows Mobile/Phone, Android, Mac OS X, iOS, BlackBerry, Symbian and Linux. The recent award wins are a testament to NCP’s commitment to creating VPN products that meet customer demand and provide the flexibility to enable mobile communications while ensuring maximum security.
