Menlo Logic Announces Virtual Passage SSL VPN Client for MacOS X

Menlo Logic provides a secure way for home users to access a corporate office as if they were located on the corporate network. The new Menlo Logic release provides a full SSL VPN client to Mac users.

Palo Alto, CA (November 5, 2004) - Menlo Logic, a trusted provider of SSL VPN products, today announced that the Virtual Passage SSL VPN client now supports Apple Mac operating systems. Besides web and Java based access to network resources, Mac users can now connect to all IP applications, including VoIP, mapped network drives, and native email applications because all TCP, UDP, ICMP, and NetBIOS data can be routed over the SSL VPN tunnel. Like Virtual Passage for Windows, the new Virtual Passage client for MacOS X securely extends the corporate network to Mac clients.


"We have received huge demand from Mac users for Virtual Passage support. And our experience is probably not unique -with more and more home users buying PowerBook and iBook laptops, even companies that have standardized on Microsoft Windows will need to support Mac clients," said Gopal Jayaraman, CTO of Menlo Logic. "We are proud to include Virtual Passage for MacOS X in our AccessPoint SSL VPN portal."

Virtual Passage for MacOS X provides temporary IP, DNS, and route settings to the Mac client, so the user can transparently access machines on the corporate network by name or by IP address. Because all VPN communications are performed over HTTPS, the Virtual Passage client avoids the firewall and NAT traversal issues common with IPSec and PPTP VPN clients. Now, Mac users can access individual applications such as Intranet web sites or file shares through the web -based SSL VPN portal or they can launch Virtual Passage to access all network resources.

Virtual Passage also supports Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 2000 Server and Windows 2003 server.
