Fremont, California – July 16, 2013 ­ Celestix Networks, a global leader in IT security solutions for secure application access and tokenless two-factor authentication; today announced global availability of the Celestix DirectAccess Server Appliance (DAX).

Celestix DAX is the latest model in the company’s award winning range of Microsoft security and access appliances. DAX enables organizations to rapidly deploy Windows Server 2012 DirectAccess on a purpose built, reliable and high performance platform.

“The seamless and secure connectivity that DirectAccess provides is simplifying the world of remote access for users, while addressing the need for a solution that sizes and scales with your business”, said Y.T. Lin, CEO of Celestix. “DAX helps organizations to roll out DirectAccess with the knowledge that their platform is scalable and secure right from initial deployment”.

DAX utilizes Celestix’ “Best of Breed” hardware platform which delivers enterprise class performance and reliability.

“Better still, this is just the first in a series of developments Celestix will provide to complement the use of DirectAccess” continues Lin.
