NetLOCK version 2.0 from Interlink Computer Sciences Inc. (extended virtual private network)
Platforms: Windows NT, Windows 95, Solaris
Price: from $3,910 for 10-seat to $14,950 for a 100-seat system
NetLOCK version 2.0 allows organizations to centrally set security policies for any networked device and to then safely transmit data inside or outside of their firewall with complete confidence. Companies that transfer sensitive technical, legal, financial or medical information, can now set policies that limit access to senders and recipients of sensitive information as a corporate policy, and implement that policy throughout the company and beyond to external recipients. NetLOCK enables organizations to conduct business-to-business electronic commerce over the Internet.

NetLOCK can be installed throughout the enterprise or within a single department. Similarly, the NetLOCK purchase decision can be made at many levels or an organization, from a department head to the Company's CIO. This flexibility is due to NetLOCK's ease of installation, low maintenance, application independence, and scalable pricing that makes its benefits available to any level of the organization. And because NetLOCK version 2.0 is standards compliant, it can work with most edge devices, such as firewalls and routers, that may already be in use.

Typical VPNs (virtual private networks) protect data traveling between remote machines and Internet gatekeepers, such as firewalls. NetLOCK allows users to create xVPNs. Interlink Computer Sciences uses the term xVPN (extended virtual private network) to describe NetLOCK's unique ability to protect data and networks from attacks that arise both inside and outside of the Company's firewall. NetLOCK provides more protection than an ordinary VPN because its end-to-end security services are applied to the internal LAN as well. As a NetLOCK customer develops its security policies for classes of users, it can extend the VPN to protect data inside and outside the customer's firewall, creating an xVPN.

NetLOCK version 2.0 is in compliance with the latest IPsec/IKE draft proposal, assuring that NetLOCK is interoperable with most edge devices. Compliance with the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) IPsec standard requires that four key algorithms be implemented -- DES, 3DES, SMA-1, MD-S).
