NCP Wins - For Third Time In A Row - Best IPsec/SSL VPN Solution in the 2011 Info Security Products Guide Awards

NCP Recognized for Product Excellence and High Customer Satisfaction

Nuernberg, Germany-March 2011-NCP engineering GmbH today announced that Info Security Products Guide has named the NCP Secure Enterprise Solution the best IPsec/SSL VPN product in the publication's 2011 Global Product Excellence Awards. NCP has now won this award three times in a row (2009, 2010, and 2011), underscoring its leadership in the remote access arena.

The prestigious Global Product Excellence Awards recognizes security and IT vendors worldwide that offer the best-in-breed technology with the most reliable solutions, customer satisifaction, and overall excellence. The selection process involved more than 50 judges evaluating the IPsec/SSL VPN category finalists, which in addition to NCP engineering, included Juniper Networks, SonicWALL, and HOB, Inc.

The NCP Secure Enterprise Solution was selected as the winner amongst this competitive field of entries, in part, because its technology was developed from the ground up to be interoperable with all major technologies, preventing cumbersome vendor-lock pitfalls. In turn, this flexibility makes VPN management simple by connecting all IPsec and SSL components to fully optimize each connection, while maintaining strong policy enforecement and rule-set creation. The NCP Enterprise Solution is designed specifically for companies with large, complex remote access environments.

"Remote access is more relevant today than ever before, so it's crucial that companies of all sizes are smart and secure about how they approach it," said Martin Hack, Executive Vice President at NCP engineering. "Today's complicated mesh of mobile devices and ubiquitous connectivity points calls for a VPN solution that simplifies management and ease-of-use, so that IT professionals and end-users can adopt the technology. This award from Info Security Products Guide highlights the demand for customizable VPN solutions that fits every business' remote access needs."

"The IPsec/SSL VPN category was very competitive and full of strong contenders this year. The NCP engineering's enterprise solution stood out among the rest for its unique blend of Remote Access Management and Ipsec/SSL technology, which is ideal for today's dynamic remote access environment," said San Madan, executive editor at Info Security Products Guide.
