Citrix Introduces Secure Access with Extranet

Citrix Systems Inc. introduced Citrix Extranet, its virtual private network (VPN) software solution that offers secure access to business critical applications over the Internet. Citrix Extranet is part of Citrix's overall expansion of its product line.

The solution is optimized for Citrix MetaFrame customers, supports a wide range of client operating systems, and supplies the three major types of safeguards required for the highest level of VPN security - authentication, access control, and encryption.

Key features include user-specific access control; service proxies; a GUI; event logging; and dynamic configuration. The product's authentication includes two-factor user identification; two-way authentication; third-party authentication support; and on-line registration. Extranet supports 3DES encryption, public key encryption (PKE), and firewall independence.
