    The market is heating up for products that allow secure access to corporate networks based on a widely used browser-security technology known as secure sockets layer encryption. Cisco Systems became the latest company to introduce a virtual private network (VPN) product based on secure sockets layer (SSL) encryption when it announced on Monday that it would add the feature to its 3000 series of network concentrators. The hardware devices act as a single access point into corporate networks and give telecommuters and branch offices a secure connection to internal networks.

    "We really see this as extending the remote access capabilities of our products," said Scott Pope, manager of VPN technologies for Cisco. "It makes a lot of sense to have both built on the same box."
