RE: Deploying SSL-based VPNs

Juniper has one of the best SSL VPN solutions that I have used on the
market today. It completes end point analysis before allowing the VPN
connection. 

If you want the client to access local resources Citrix makes a great
hybrid SSL-VPN w/ Ipsec device. The Citrix secure access appliance
completes endpoint analysis along with resource limitations. It launches
a local client that does not require any installation and allows your
users to access resources as if they were located on the local segment. 

I favor the Citrix solution over the Juniper because it has a lot of
additional options.

That's my 2Cents

Subject: Deploying SSL-based VPNs

Hi all

I'm currently interested in SSL-VPN solutions, problems and
deployments. Personally I prefere much more the term "SSL-based remote
access" since almost all those products (except OpenVPN) claiming to
be SSL-VPNs don't offer any network functionality. Would you guys
share your experiences?

What are the issues you spotted when deploying SSL-based remote access
solutions?

Any experiences with certain products? (my company for example made
bad experiences with iGate from SafeNet)

What features make an SSL-remote access solution a good one?

I know these are some very general questions.

Thanks anyway
Joe
