NCP engineering Partners with Virtual Graffiti to Extend Enterprise Remote Access Solution Reach

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

Virtual Graffiti, which has more than 80,000 customers worldwide, now offers and supports the full range of NCP's enterprise and entry remote access solutions. The channel partner first signed onto NCP's program as a result of seeing increased demand for an Apple (News - Alert)-compatible, bundled IPsec VPN client like the recently upgraded NCP Secure Mac Clients.

They are compatible with OS X Mavericks and Mountain Lion.
  • Enterprises can centrally manage remote access to their corporate networks with the NCP Secure Enterprise Solution, which includes the more feature-rich Enterprise version of the IPsec VPN client suite, a scalable, hybrid IPsec/SSL VPN gateway that can support more than 10,000 concurrent VPN connections, and an administration system to support organizations' entire remote access infrastructure.
  • NCP's partner program lets channel partners simplify and secure remote access for enterprises. Gold partners are equipped with hands-on training, marketing support and certification to help gain new customers and to increase the satisfaction of existing ones.
