Cambridge, UK, 18 March 2008 – Zeus Technology, a leading provider of application traffic management software, today announced that customers can use technology from AppGate Network Security, the leading provider of network security solutions, to securely manage ZXTM (Zeus Extensible Traffic Manager) from any device, from anywhere in the world.
Attendees of last month’s Mobile World Congress, witnessed a demonstration of the AppGate solution working with multiple copies of ZXTM on standard servers, allowing users to remotely control ZXTM from a mobile phone by simply clicking on a pre-installed icon to bring up the ZXTM User Interface login screen. The secure connection is made over AppGate VPN (Virtual Private Network).
The AppGate solution protects applications and communication, and secures end point devices. It supports all types of transmission, fixed, wireless and mobile, and is easily integrated into any customer environment.
According to AppGates CEO Göran Marby, "Until now many businesses have addressed the security issues associated with mobile access through point solutions, and as a result have had to find a compromise between security of the network and flexibility for the user. With the combination of Zeus and AppGate’s solutions both the security needs of the enterprise and user demands are satisfied."

“With remote working steadily on the rise and more organizations needing to protect business critical information, being able to recommend a solution allowing our customers remote management access to ZXTM with an additional layer of security is excellent,” said Paul Brennan, CEO and Chairman of Zeus Technology, “Customers implementing Zeus ZXTM with the AppGate solution benefit from the added flexibility and security it provides to remote IT staff. “
