"Once again simplifying Linux servers, Cybernet Systems Corporation today announced its plan to introduce the industry's first low-cost Linux-based software for creating a Virtual Private Network (VPN). The new NetMAX VPN Server Suite is expected to be the first product to bring secure VPN Internet connections into general mainstream business use. The VPN Server Suite has a breakthrough sub-$500 price tag and the same combination of simplicity/ease-of-use through browser-based management and integrated Linux operating system that has made the other members of the NetMAX Internet appliance software servers so successful."

"The company will preview the new NetMAX VPN Server Suite in booth No. 4123 in the "Linux Solutions Zone" at the Las Vegas Networld+Interop (N+I) conference May 9-12. Retail and distribution channel shipments of the $499 package are expected to begin in June 2000."

"The NetMAX VPN Server Suite software is designed to appeal to businesses wanting to establish secure Internet connections at a reasonable cost. "The NetMAX VPN Server Suite delivers the power, reliability and flexibility of Linux and Virtual Private Networking without any headaches," noted Cybernet's Armando Pauker, vice president of network products. "Companies can install and configure a basic business Intranet with a few mouse clicks in as little as 15 minutes. VPNs used to be complex and cost tens of thousands of dollars. Not any more."
