  • Reduces management costs associated with VPN licensing, client software, technical support and administration.
  • Assures data is not cached on the endpoint machine by wiping all forms of temporary files, browser cache (proprietary and non-proprietary), downloaded files and pages, cookies, history information, user credentials, and other information possibly recorded by a Web browser during an SSL session.
