Celestix E Series Unified Remote Access appliance makes achieving PSN compliance easier after CESG extends CPA certification to DirectAccess and IPsec VPN gateways on Windows Server 2012 R2.

Celestix Networks, the leading provider of secure remote access connectivity solutions, has announced the global availability of the CESG CPA certified version of its E series platform for delivering DirectAccess and IPsec VPN connectivity in the public sector.

The E series solution delivers always on network connectivity for compatible Windows 7 and 8 domain joined devices, making it an ideal solution for providing access to official content for public sector staff, wherever they work. As well as providing DirectAccess, the E series also delivers IPsec VPN connectivity from the same gateway appliance, enabling public organisations to offer PSN compliant remote access to a broad range of devices.

Until now, providing remote workers with access to official data in a PSN compliant manner has been complex, costly and may not provide the easiest user experience. DirectAccess addresses this challenge, enabling organisations to provide employees with the easiest possible access to official data, while ensuring access is encrypted and managed in line with PSN guidelines.

“CESG’s CPA certification for DirectAccess and IPsec VPN brings positive news for public sector organisations who are working hard to balance mobile working initiatives with PSN compliance” said Tim Ager, UK Managing Director for Celestix Networks.

In addition to security and ease of use, DirectAccess enables administrators to manage endpoint devices wherever they reside, allowing them to ensure devices comply with security profiles and are up to date with group polices.
