ViPNet OFFICE 4.0: Upgrade of the certified VPN solution

Availability for Mac OS and increased usability

August 21th 2013 – Infotecs Americas Inc., the international organization specializing in IT security, released version 4.0 of the VPN software ViPNet OFFICE. Now end users can utilize the software on computers with Mac OS. In addition, the new version benefits from a more user-friendly user interface, especially for IT administrators and the availability of all solution components for the Microsoft Windows 8 operating system supporting both the 32 and 64 bit versions.

As of now, our VPN solution, ViPNet OFFICE, version 4.0 has been released to the market. Infotecs Americas Inc. continuously improves our certified IT security solution for our customers providing even more comfort, safety and flexibility. Version 4.0 is enhanced with support for Mac OS/Apple computers. In addition to Microsoft Windows based operating systems and Linux based Virtual Appliances ViPNet Manager, the central component for IT administrators, now also supports the management of ViPNet clients (software for VPN users) with Mac OS from Apple. Hence Microsoft Windows 8 is available for all solution components of ViPNet OFFICE for 32 and 64 bits.

IT administrators benefit from two new add-ons as well as numerous improvements in the operation. With the extension ViPNet State Watcher network clients can centrally monitor the availability of critical network connections from the local computer. Thereby over 200 parameters such as storage, memory and CPU load are monitored and error notifications are sent automatically to the IT department. The ViPNet Policy Manager as an additional optional add-on centrally manages security policies such as e.g. firewall rules and spares the manual checking of the security policy for each client. General corporate policies can be implemented easily and quickly. Both add-ons, ViPNet State Watcher and ViPNet Policy Manager, are particularly suitable for the construction and management of larger networks within and between companies.

Another innovation is the convenient installation of the software and the implementation of the primary key initialization using the Windows Installer (MSI) for Microsoft Windows operating systems. IT managers can realize rollout for all clients from their own PC. Thus, the installation at the customer site or in remote offices is unnecessary.

ViPNet OFFICE is a software-based VPN solution for both large enterprises as well as SMBs. The great adaptability of ViPNet technology enables the use in industrial production and logistics as well as secure encrypted connection within the corporate network via LTE.
