Celestix Cloud Edge Security Appliances bring the power of the Microsoft Cloud OS into the datacenter. Cloud operating systems and services are now critical, even within private datacenters. Celestix dedicated hardware and management software extend Microsoft’s Cloud OS software, based on Windows Server 2012 R2, into a rapidly deployed secure platform.

This announcement is the latest in a long track record of Microsoft dedicated remote access and security appliances from Celestix. The new Cloud Edge Security Appliance series extends this track record first with the E series Cloud Edge Security Appliance. The E series unifies multiple remote access technologies onto a single consistent platform. It offers a wide range of connectivity capabilities for remote access including; VPN, DirectAccess, Remote Desktop Gateway, Work Folders, as well as Hyper-V Network Virtualization Gateway support. Mobile and enterprise clients can connect to any resources from corporate or personal devices.

The E Series also provides secure bi-directional Site to Site VPN connectivity to multiple cloud providers allowing organizations to seamlessly enable the hybrid cloud. When combined with the Virtual Cloud Edge Security Appliance, designed for the hosted cloud, it further extends the security and easy setup by managing and coordinating both sides of the Site to Site VPN and Virtual Networking connections. Integrated auditing and accounting for both on premise and cloud resources ensures complete management of the connectivity flow and security of the data.

“Customers are telling us that they are embracing cloud services in all aspects of their IT, but have found it difficult to integrate the different elements of the physical, virtual, and cloud datacenters” said Yong Thye Lin, Chief Executive Officer of Celestix. “As a trusted OEM partner of Microsoft we have the ability to address these integration points and provide complete end to end connectivity, management and support.
