Permeo Upgrades App Security Gateway
Upgrade adds new Web-based console and improved PKI support.Application security vendor Permeo Technologies Inc. on Monday will unveil version 5.0 of its Application Security Gateway, which includes a new Web-based console and improved PKI support. Version 5.0 of the gateway also introduces support for the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), which is used in a number of applications, including voice over IP and some instant messaging systems. In a typical enterprise environment, administrators have to open a hole in the firewall to allow SIP-based applications through. But, because Permeos system uses a separate client-server connection that doesnt rely on the Internets IP infrastructure, the SIP application traffic goes through a pre-selected firewall port directly to the Application Security Gateway. The Permeo gateway then passes the request on to the application server.
All of the traffic between authenticated users and the gateway is encrypted via SSL. The gateway then decrypts the traffic before handing it off to the application server.
