Today, with the rise of cloud computing, we have a redefined vision of IT. Organizations are increasingly diversifying their IT infrastructure and moving from physical to a mix of physical, virtual, and cloud environments. This transformation in the datacenter is bringing new challenges in getting secure and consistent connectivity across different IT systems, cloud services, and a plethora of devices. In virtualized and cloud computing environments, legacy perimeter security solutions are not fully equipped to provide seamless connectivity, critical for utilizing the benefits from scalable, agile, and cost effective cloud infrastructure.

Many of our staff spend considerable amount of time working in the Tropics. The ability to connect to centrally hosted resources is vital for us. As part of our transition to Windows 8.1, we were keen to use DirectAccess to provide users with a trouble-free connection. Celestix Edge (now renamed Celestix SecureAccess) provided everything we needed and the support was excellent.

Unified Remote Access

Various remote access infrastructure components are consolidated to provide different connectivity options from a single appliance without the hassle of dealing with different cross-vendor solutions.

Always On VPN

Both Microsoft DirectAccess and Always On VPN provide secure, always-on connectivity for Windows 7/8/8.1 Enterprise and Windows 10 clients respectively. 
They helps users to experience the full corporate environment from any location through any internet connection.


Celestix SecureAccess client expands automatic connectivity to Windows Professional and Mac OSX computers. Now organizations can take advantage of always-on connections and manage out functionality for previously unsupported clients.

Autnentication Integration

Celestix MFA multi-factor authentication integrates with the Celestix SecureAccess Appliance to provide a simple solution to complex password requirements and maximize security.

Web Application Proxy

Web Application Proxy allows administrators to publish applications selectively for external access. It enables end users to access these applications from outside the corporate network using any device.

Work Folder

Traditional cross-platform VPN Work Folders that can be used to store and access work files on personal computers and devices from anywhere. For BYOD environments, Work Folders can be a very simple and easy way to access important files. 

Autnentication Integration

With the explosion of smartphones and tablets, organizations have been debating the benefits and security risks of adopting a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policy. Workplace Join enables simplified registration of personal and corporate devices, empowering organizations to provide a seamless sign-in experience to company resources from trusted devices.

Site-to Site VPN

Site-to-Site VPN enables access between private and public clouds, or multiple cloud providers by establishing a secure connection from an enterprise datacenter to the cloud infrastructure. This allows users to access resources across clouds without having to explicitly establish an individual VPN connection to them.

Remote Access Gateway

Remote Desktop Gateway enables authorized users to connect to remote computers on a corporate network from any computer without creating a VPN connection. It uses the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) along with the HTTPS protocol to help create a more secure, encrypted connection.
