"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."
