Mar 15, 2000, 19:44 (1 Talkback[s])

"InfoExpress, a leader in secure extranet and remote access solutions, today announced that Sybase, Inc. is building its global remote access program around the InfoExpress VTCP/Secure virtual private network (VPN) solution. The InfoExpress VPN will provide easy remote access and connectivity for 5,000 Sybase employees, contractors and vendors. With the InfoExpress VPN, remote users can connect to the Sybase internal web site for sales presentations, resources and project information, Lotus Notes and voicemail access, and other Windows applications."

"Many Sybase employees work out of customer sites and need to be able to traverse the customer firewall in order to access corporate resources. In most cases, they are able to connect their machine to Sybase through the InfoExpress VPN without making changes to the firewalls."

"Sybase has purchased four InfoExpress VPN servers, which run on Red Hat Linux 5.2... Configured for high stability and security, the servers function in an East Coast/West Coast failover mode. User access is primarily through Windows-based laptops."
