PacketiX.NET utilizes cloud computing to protect remote access

SAN JOSE, Calif. - August 11, 2008 - Plat'Home, Japan's Linux technology pioneer, today announced the world-wide availability of PacketiX.NET, a VPN server cluster with a web interface and thousands of virtual hubs. With PacketiX.NET, users can easily set up their own private virtual hub for free and take advantage of unlimited, full functionality by simply accessing a free download. Plat'Home is a sales partner for SoftEther, the maker of PacketiX.NET.

To build a network connection and send data over a hub, users can download and install the PacketiX VPN client for free at http://www.packetix.net/en/.

PacketiX.NET routes all data transmissions over a secure gateway server and encrypts all data by SSL. Regardless whether content is sent over a wireless LAN, which may be susceptible to intercepted traffic, or over a public Internet access service, users can easily apply encryption to achieve maximum security against eavesdropping.

"PacketiX.NET allows you to use the Internet for security. That sounds like an oxymoron, but it's not. Simple, inexpensive security is possible. With this free service, you get to test it, and see yourself how useful it is for your business and at home," said Nobori Daiyu, president of SoftEther. "With PacketiX.NET, unlike a standard VPN setup, users don't need server hardware and a fixed IP on the Internet. They simply access the central server that's set up by SoftEther, thus making the whole process considerably easier."

The service is best suited for accessing the Internet in the following situations:
