Nokia Releases Newest Version Of SSL VPN

Nokia has announced the newest version of its SSL VPN, Nokia Secure Access System (SAS), which includes a new Secure Connector feature that gives remote users secure network-level access, including access to business applications, data, and network services.

Secure Connector also offers real-time anti-virus monitoring and split tunneling control, and includes encrypted data storage and vault capabilities, giving users a secure place to store important information that can only be accessed during an active session.

The SSL VPN is designed to give users secure remote access to email, personal information management (PIM) data, corporate intranets and applications from public Internet kiosks, terminal, laptop or wireless device.

The Secure Connector client is downloadable from the Nokia SSL VPN gateway and installed by the user on the remote device the first time the device is used. Once installed, an IT administrator can manage all client configurations and updates from the Nokia SSL VPN gateway.

"Nokia is meeting the demands of the mobile workforce in our latest SSL VPN offering by giving IT managers and mobile workers the security, flexibility and transparency needed to access to sensitive corporate data," said Elie Habib, senior vice president, Security and Mobile Connectivity, Nokia Enterprise Solutions in a statement. "The addition of our Network Extension feature, Secure Connector, combined with Nokia SAS's performance, reliability, and manageability make it an easy and effective way for companies to leverage the benefits of secure mobility to operate and grow their business."
