IPASS GLOBAL ROAMING - REDUCE THE DATA COSTS OF INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL
The iPass Remote Access solution gives your staff access
24 hours a day, 365 days per year, for the cost of a local
phone call plus a small connection charge. Users connect to
the nearest Access Point using the iPass dialler (which contains
information on all of the Access Points indexed by country,
state and city) and are authenticated on a RoamServer. Once
users have been authenticated they gain normal access to the
Internet and can fire up their VPN client and create a secure
tunnel back to your network. All of these steps are encrypted
in 128-bit SSL to ensure there is no risk of your logon information

uses 128-bit key secure socket layer (SSL) encryption to
secure user names and passwords during user authentication.

your existing authentication database to give you complete
administrative control of authorised users and permissions.

Virtual Private Networks, firewall, token card and security
solutions, enabling you to choose the security products
that best meet your company needs.
