SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NCP engineering today announced the release of the NCP Secure Enterprise Management (SEM) 5.0 for the central management of virtual private network (VPN) endpoints. The new version offers enhanced database access for bulk user logins, optimization of the Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) functionality, and support for Sophos MCS two-factor authentication (SMS). Additionally, notifications are clearly highlighted in the NCP Secure Enterprise Management console.
The NCP Secure Enterprise Management 5.0 provides a single console to administer remote access VPN clients and enables IT managers to automate processes such as certificate administration and deployment, compliance checks, updates, and de-activation across all endpoint devices. By integrating with third-party user management databases (via Microsoft Active Directory/LDAP), the SEM automatically synchronizes when changes are made. For example, when an employee is added, the NCP Secure Enterprise Management creates an individual configuration for the new user according to pre-defined templates, enters it at the RADIUS server, and assigns a software certificate.
“The new Secure Enterprise Management 5.0 provides endpoint security for enterprise mobility and the Industrial Internet of Things,” said Patrick Oliver Graf, CEO of NCP engineering. “To properly manage mixed environments and a large number of endpoint devices simultaneously, the SEM offers a modular system to integrate various plug-ins for seamless administration processes. These plug-ins include graphical user interfaces to control and manage all integrated NCP components.”
The NCP Secure Enterprise Management 5.0 is compatible with Windows Server 2016 64-Bit, Windows Server 2012 R2 64-Bit, CentOS 7.4 and Ubuntu Server 16.04.3 LTS.
