What is Check Point SSL Network Extender?  (from Check Point, Inc)

SSL Network Extender is a secure connectivity framework for remote access to a corporate network. SSL Network Extender uses a thin VPN client installed on the user's remote computer that connects to an SSL-enabled web server. The web server and the client are in the same VPN.
