Nokia has beefed up security on the Nokia Secure Access System, its SSL VPN solution, by adding new data protection features that go beyond traditional cache cleaning and application wiping.

The Nokia Secure Access System provides secure remote access to email, personal PIM data, corporate intranets and applications from any public Internet kiosk, terminal, laptop or wireless device. Version 2.1 introduces the new Secure Workspace, designed to maximize security without limiting the way users work. It creates a separate work environment on laptops, home PCs, public kiosk terminals or other remote access devices as a way to safeguard data created in secure sessions.

As a way to safeguard data, it system performs basic tasks on logout, such as deleting temporary browser cache files, cookies, history and bookmarks. It overwrites all of the deleted files multiple times to ensure data cannot be recovered, complying with US government security requirements designed by the Department of Defense.

"Nokia Secure Access System 2.1 soundly balances security and user freedom, implementing strong security measures without impacting where and how users want to work," said Elie Habib, senior vice president, Security and Mobile Connectivity, Nokia Enterprise Solutions. "The addition of Secure Workspace combined with existing performance, reliability, and manageability make Nokia Secure Access System an easy and effective way for companies to realize the benefits of secure mobility."
