Global development license acquired by Northbridge Secure Systems (NSS) in 2013, NetillaOS NetConnect is a secure, real-time mobility and remote application access gateway. Previously known as Ultra Protect by Ultra Electronics AEP, the solution is now known as NetConnect and sold exclusively by Northbridge Secure Systems. The original development of Netilla was handled by Netilla Networks, which merged with AEP Systems in 2004 to form AEP Networks before being acquired by Ultra Electronics in 2011.

NetConnect combines a secure remote access platform with customizable user access options, enabling users for the BYOD revolution. The solution boasts multiple authentication methods and level, as well as the creation of V-Realms, which allow only selected groups to access certain applications and services based on access level policies. NetConnect uses authentication protocols such as Windows SMB/Active Directory, LDAP, RADIUS, RSA SecurID, Kerberos, VASCO, Aladdin ActivCard and SecurEnvoy.

NetConnect is available in various hardware models as well as a virtual appliance, which supports VMWare, Microsoft HyperV, Citrix XEN and Linux KVM environments.[1]

Designed to assist organizations of varying size (SME’s through to large enterprises) in making a smooth transition to a cloud computing model, NetConnect helps eliminate the BYOD and security challenges faced by many organisations.
