Nortel Launches Virtual Secure Office USB StickFor the limited number of you who visit GetUSB.info and work in a large, corporate environment, the Nortel virtual office USB stick might be your answer to working from home.Â The Nortel virtual office is a plug-n-play stick to provide any remote user instant access to the company server via VPN.
Access privileges can be set according to user IP address or authentication strength from data input.Â Nortel’s VPN Gateway will authenticate the remote connection request and approve connection based on the information provided. This is a great solution for remote users who are looking for top level security over a Virtual Private Network.Â A Nortel customer gives one good example of use:
Dr Zafar Chaudry, director of IT for Liverpool Women’s NHS Foundation Trust, said: â€œCommunity-based midwives â€¦ will be using Nortel Secure Portable Office with hospital-provided laptops, 3G wireless data cards and Nortel Mobile Client Accelerator to securely access, review and update server-based medical records from patient homes. â€œOur midwives must keep up with complex and changing procedures to ensure the very best patient care. Having a simple solution that allows them to do their jobs securely without having to learn complex log-in and operating procedures is a real plus.â€No word on price, but if you have a Nortel network, contact your local representative.
