Bake-Off: SSL VPNs Keep You Connected

Array Networks' SPX2000 Universal Access Controller offers an impressive virtualization feature. The remote machines connect through a secure desktop that is set up for the duration of the session. Once the session is closed, the desktop is wiped out.

The NeoAccel's SSL VPN-Plus SGX Gateway's clean interface made administration and deployment a breeze. The SSL VPN-Plus also offers a thin client and a full client (Java applets and ActiveX controls) to mimic the IPsec functionality for non-Web applications.

SonicWall's Aventail EX-1600 received the first-place crown for its comprehensive management interface, simple installation and its intuitive method to create and implement access control policies.
