Overview

PacketiX™ VPN is next-generation VPN software that offers stability, flexibility and expandability, from home and small and medium-size business networks to advanced high-bandwidth and heavy load networks required by large corporations, Internet providers and SaaS businesses.

Contrary to older VPN solutions, PacketiX™ VPN 2.0 can be integrated into an existing network much more easily, as it creates a virtual image of an Ethernet, with LAN cards, routers, hubs and switches. The PacketiX VPN protocol easily passes obstacles on the LAN and the Internet, like firewalls and proxies, as its packets can be handled like a usual SSL connection.

Advantages

Flexibility

With cascade connections and virtual layer 3 switches, PacketiX VPN allows administrators to connect local networks at different locations into one integrated network, so that all ressources can be easily accessed from anywhere.

The PacketiX VPN protocol easily passes through most routers, proxy servers and firewalls. Thus, the VPN network can be accessed from any remote location with the VPN Client, such as WLAN hotspots in airports and hotels.

Cost Reduction

PacketiX VPN removes the necessity to rent dedicated lines and expensive specialized hardware to create a secure network connection to remote locations.

Stability and Scalability

PacketiX VPN 2.0 can bundle several IP connections for one VPN session, to ensure a fast, stable connection even over an unreliable physical network.

With the integrated functionality to connect several VPN servers to a cluster, the PacketiX VPN network keeps running smoothly even if a server fails. And by adding more servers over time, the network can be scaled to meet the demands of a successful growing business.

Security

PacketiX™ VPN supports the encryption of communication packets, server authentication, user authentication using password or hardware token, and a variety of other security functions, and uses the latest and safest standards.

Easy to Install and Manage

Even non-specialist users can manage the easy installation and administration using intuitive GUI tools.
