Colubris Networks' CN1050 is a high security wireless access point with a built-in virtual private network server that allows organisations to send and receive information via a private session. Aimed at medium-to-large enterprises, the CN1050 creates a completely secure connection for each wireless station, providing a safe Internet-based tunnel for the wireless user to the corporate back-office system. Other products of this standard send information over an open infrastructure that can be accessed by external hackers and internal users. The CN1050 also includes support for 40/128-bit WEP encryption and the on-board Hifn chipset maximises throughput by handling all encryption tasks. The CN1050 is encrypted with an integrated VPN client and server that supports user authentication via IPSec and L2TP, which is claimed to be unique in the Australian market.
Colubris Networks' CN1050 retails for $3160 (including GST) and is available from Integrity Data Systems.
