Superman might have been able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but Secure Computing Corp. has made it a little more tricky for him to scale the corporate firewall. The company just released Sidewinder Security Server 4.0, which now features automatic failover as well as enhanced authentication, Web filtering and access control, and Java applet blocking.

Sidewinder 4.0 also integrates the most recent Virtual Private Network standards for IPSEC encryption, with support for DES, 3DES, and RC4-128 and IKE public key management and X.509 certificates as well as an automated interface to certificateauthorities. In plain English, it helps you open your LAN to remote users while keeping your network safe.

Sidewinder 4.0 is available immediately. Pricing ranges from $6,900 for a 100-user license to $19,900 for an unlimited-user license. Secure Computing, 800-379-4944, www.securecomputing.com.
