Cutting The Cost Of Secure Online Meetings

New products from Neoteris promise to create a secure meeting place.

Security appliance vendor Neoteris Inc. on Tuesday unveiled a line of products it says will allow businesses to conduct cheaper, more secure online meetings.

The Neoteris Meeting series of network appliances, based on the company's Instant Virtual Extranet Access devices, uses Secure Sockets Layer security on a VPN to let workers around the world log on to a secure, encrypted online meeting space.

Neoteris says the devices are the industry's first hardened appliances for online meetings. The products are meant to compete with hosted collaboration products from competitor WebEx Communications Inc., as well as a number of different software offerings.

As an all-in-one network appliance, the Meeting series is far easier to deploy and manage on your network than a software solution, says Andrew Harding, technical marketing manager for Neoteris, and it's much cheaper than a hosted service. Neoteris says users can see a return on investment within three to six months of deployment.

Existing users of Neoteris' Instant Virtual Extranet appliances can buy a software upgrade to the Meeting Series, available July 23, for $1,995 to $11,995, depending on the number of users. A dedicated appliance, the Meeting 3000, will be available in December, at prices ranging from $14,995 to $49,995.
