Microsoft has placed in the Visionaries Quadrant of Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for SSL VPN, North America, 3Q07 Report (SSL VPN stands for secure socket layer virtual private network). Gartner finds that “The consolidation of vendors and competition in endpoint security and usability continue to improve the appeal of SSL VPNs.”
Launched in February 2007, Microsoft’s Intelligent Application Gateway 2007 (IAG) allows administrators to manage IPSec and SSL VPN connections through a single appliance from a shared Microsoft Active Directory repository.
