Staunton, VA Police Force Goes Mobile With NeoAccel Third-Generation VPN

SSL VPN-Plus(TM) Provides Fast, Secure Remote Connections for Mobile Data Terminals in Police Vehicles

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - October 1, 2007) - NeoAccel, developer of the third-generation VPN, today announced that the City of Staunton, Virginia has deployed SSL VPN-Plus™ as part of a mobile data network solution for its police force. SSL VPN-Plus provides a fast, efficient, secure, and automated connection to a police data server via a cellular data network, allowing law enforcement personnel to instantly access information about vehicle registration, driver's licenses, and other topics.

When deploying its new computer-aided dispatch terminals in police cars, City of Staunton CTO Kurt Plowman and his team wanted a remote access solution that was as efficient and automated as possible without compromising security. "What we wanted was a solution where we didn't have to mess with client configurations," said Plowman. "We wanted something fast, simple, and reliable so the officer doesn't have to think about connecting to the network as he or she is driving down the road."

After testing NeoAccel's SSL VPN-Plus, Plowman and his team found that it eliminated the client configuration issues presented by other products and provided an extra measure of security. "SSL VPN-Plus allows us to ensure compliance with our overall network security policies, which gives us more peace of mind with terminals that are out in vehicles."

Another benefit delivered by SSL VPN-Plus was high performance. "We needed to optimize performance as much as possible because we're using a first-generation cellular data connection," said Plowman. "NeoAccel's product exceeded our performance expectations, and now even our remote users with landline connections are seeing better performance than with the old remote access solution we had used for them."

"Solving wireless remote access challenges with reliability, security, and performance is at the core of NeoAccel's mission," said Michel Susai, CEO and Chairman at NeoAccel. "As government and enterprise customers of all sizes are discovering, our third-generation VPN, SSL VPN-Plus, makes remote access work the way it should without all the headaches inherent in first- and second-generation products."
