VPN Tracker

Macworld, San Francisco – January 6, 2004: equinux, a market
leading VPN vendor for the Mac platform is proud to present a
whitepaper targeted to FileMaker users connecting to the database over

Accessing a FileMaker database from remote locations over the Internet
is risky, the threat of unauthorized access can result in information
leakage, modification of confidential information and exploitation of
customer data. Given the fact that hackers are getting even more
sophisticated in obtaining confidential information, no companies can
afford the risk of illegal tampering.  

“The Whitepaper shows how using VPN Tracker as VPN Client on the
remote Mac, you are able to login to the company’s FileMaker
databases without endangering any sensitive business information,”
comments Till Schadde, CEO of equinux. “Accessing FileMaker over the
Internet using VPN Tracker is the ultimate setup for companies with a
remote work force.”

VPN Tracker is the market leading VPN software for the Mac market
offering enforcing protection capabilities for companies sharing
information over the Internet. Using the IPsec protocol the software
encrypts data sent over the Internet, the client runs smoothly and is
a very cost efficient way to ensure that home and branch offices are
able to access FileMaker files without the risk of exposing
confidential data.  

equinux’s security technology is easy to implement, avoiding the
heavy costs and resources usually associated with secure network
technologies, and with little impact on program performance. Using
FileMaker from home and branch offices over a secure VPN Tunnel is the
optimal solution for companies that are looking for a cost-efficient
