SSL-Explorer project is the world's first open-source SSL VPN solution of its kind. This unique remote access solution provides users and businesses alike with a means of securely accessing network resources from outside the network perimeter using only a standard web browser.
SSL-based VPNs have become a hot topic in recent years. The benefits to productivity and the low maintenance overhead that comes with browser-based VPN solutions are something that cannot be overlooked by most businesses, though implementation costs can often be prohibitive.
In contrast to a conventional IPsec-based solution, no client side code needs to be installed on your end user's systems. SSL VPNs rely on Javatm based technology and hence require only a standard web browser to operate.
Standard network protocols can be tunnelled through the SSL connection, meaning that email and intranet web/file resources are easily and securely accessible from outside the corporate network.
The use of SSL is highly beneficial in these circumstances since most firewall policies grant access to SSL traffic by default, meaning that no additional configuration is required. Our solution is not a firewall, but it effectively allows you to 'lock-down' your network, leaving just a single port open on your firewall.
