NCP engineering Launches Enhanced Secure Enterprise Management with Advanced Authentication

NCP engineering today announced the availability of a new version of its Secure Enterprise Management (SEM), software that streamlines the tasks of remote access to a few clicks. Built around the all-new NCP Advanced Authentication, SEM 3.0 enables powerful Two-Factor Authentication with a One-Time Password that users receive via SMS. Each password is created by a random number generator within the NCP Advanced Authentication Connector and is automatically canceled after use. This eliminates the need to use third party solutions and enables Two-Factor Authentication with only a mobile or smartphone.

Key Facts

  • With the new NCP Advanced Authentication, SEM 3.0 elevates the security of the entire NCP Secure Enterprise Solution, which is comprised of a VPN client suite, hybrid IPsec/SSL VPN server and the remote access VPN management system.
  • The NCP Secure Enterprise Solution is a 100% software solution developed from the ground up to be interoperable with all major network-layer security technologies, including VPN gateways and firewalls, preventing vendor-lock pitfalls. It also supports the broadest range of end device platforms, including Windows 8/7/Vista/XP, Windows Mobile/Phone, Android, Mac OS X, Mac iOS, BlackBerry, Symbian and Linux.
  • As a centrally controlled solution, SEM 3.0 provides a single point of network administration for a company’s entire IPsec and SSL VPN network, in addition to full Network Access Control (NAC) management. Administrators are able to provision and configure remote access capabilities to help prevent “bandwidth hogging” and wireless data consumption fees.

Recently, REAN Cloud built a digital concierge for a North Carolina hospital that had observed that most patient call button questions were repetitive. In addition, the paper-based process used to measure patient health metrics was laborious, not in real-time and sometimes error-prone. In their session at 21st Cloud Expo, Sean Finnerty, Executive Director, Practice Lead, Health Care & Life Science at REAN Cloud, and Dr. S.P.T. Krishnan, Principal Architect at REAN Cloud, discussed how they built...
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
