PGP Security Delivers Mac Client Support for Intel VPN Products

Apr 17, 2001, 01:00 ET from Network Associates Inc.

    SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- PGP Security, a
 Network Associates (Nasdaq: NETA) company, today introduced Virtual Private
 Networking (VPN) client software that will enable Intel VPN Gateways to
 support the Mac Operating System (OS).  PGP Security's award winning VPN
 client technology paired with Intel VPN Gateways provides Mac OS users with a
 secure encrypted tunnel to transfer information among partners, employees and
 customers across organizations and locations.
     "Organizations are increasingly relying on the Internet to help improve
 every aspect of their business operations, and VPNs further that effort,
 enabling them to securely conduct everyday business over the Internet," said
 Brian Finkel, VPN product line manager at Intel Corporation.  "PGP Security's
 Mac OS-based VPN client technology complements our product line by delivering
 interoperable solutions for today's mixed client OS environment."
     VPNs are used by organizations of all sizes to enable private
 communication with partners, employees and customers, providing a secure
 tunnel for the transfer of information.  In an increasingly global work
 environment, it is essential to business growth to be able to quickly
 collaborate across locations and organizations.  VPNs offer a cost-effective
 and efficient solution to do so.  Interoperability with various platforms is
 also essential as collaboration occurs across various servers and network
 architectures; a solution must work with existing infrastructures that may
 vary from one location to another.
     "In today's complex network environment it is imperative that we offer
 products that provide the flexibility to work with existing infrastructures to
 secure the privacy of Internet communications," said Jeff Jones, vice
 president of marketing at PGP Security.  "Working with Intel, we are able to
 offer our customers solutions that enable the growth of global business."
     PGP VPN Suite can reduce network and remote access costs by up to
 80 percent by harnessing the power and low cost of Internet connectivity.  PGP
 VPN Suite offers flexible gateway-to-gateway, client-to-gateway, and
 client-to-client options that create secure, encrypted tunnels between
 corporate offices, remote users, and business partners.  PGP Security's VPN
 technology received the "Editor's Choice" award at this year's Macworld awards
 because of the enhanced features provided for Mac clients and its
 interoperability enabled by the IPsec network encryption standard for VPNs.
 The VPN technology is now compatible with Intel's VPN Gateways, providing a
 secure environment for Mac OS users to transfer private information between
 employees, customers and partners.
     Intel's scaleable family of VPN gateways allow customers to select the
 performance level necessary to meet their specific requirements.  The gateways
 are fully compliant with the IPSec 1.1 industry security standard, and include
 an ICSA firewall.  For information about Intel's VPN gateways, as well as
 third-party VPN gateways based on Intel's product line, visit

     PGP Security, a Network Associates company, is a worldwide leader in
 products and services focusing on solving privacy and data confidentiality
 issues, and has a strong history of setting security industry standards.  PGP
 Security's breadth of security products, including firewall, encryption,
 intrusion detection, risk assessment and VPN technologies, address the full
 range of security and privacy issues, anywhere information is accessed,

 The findings are incorporated into the product offerings, ensuring protection
 from the latest vulnerabilities.
