"The new software uses triple DES 128-bit encryption and provides an economical alternative to WANs."

"Ann Arbor, Mich.-based Cybernet Systems today announced its Linux-based NetMAX VPN Server Suite, a software package designed to set up a virtual private network. The VPN Server Suite, scheduled for a June release, includes a graphical user interface for simpler, browser-based installation and costs just under $500 -- a relatively good deal considering its closest-priced competitor SonicWALL requires that users buy its hardware. Cybernet's VPN software package only requires a Pentium-based machine."

"The VPN Server Suite is a mix of open source and proprietary technologies. The package includes a version of Linux based on Red Hat's distribution and value-add products such as NetMax FireWall software and a GUI the company says allows users to install the system in as few as 15 minutes."
