Hardened Internet appliance for clientless remote access

uRoam's FirePass is an Internet appliance installed in a corporate network and configured to work with the corporate firewall. It supports secure remote access from PC, Palm, RIM, PocketPC and Internet phone browsers. FirePass provides a single, integrated, elegant solution requiring no setup or software installation on the accessing devices. The reduced installation and support burden lowers network administration costs while providing superior convenience and ease-of-use for the remote workers and Extranet partners.

Designed for complex environments

FirePass is designed for complex environments whose users need secure remote access to a great variety of network resources, including legacy mainframe applications (3270, 5250, Telnet), Lotus Notes applications, MS Exchange servers, network files, Intranets, Extranets, corporate portals, and personal desktop applications. One-time password token options, including a built-in VASCO Digipass® implementation, provide the strong user authentication that large enterprises need for securing their information resources and applications.

"We're extremely pleased to deliver these broad-ranging enhancements to our industry-leading, clientless remote access product, FirePass" said Michael Herne, uRoam's President and CEO. "Adding the new functionality absolutely puts FirePass in first place as the remote access solution of choice for complex, enterprise environments."
