Cryptzone's AppGate VPN Client for iPhone and iPad launches on the App Store

GOTHENBURG, SWEDEN--(Marketwire - May 4, 2011) - The AppGate solution from Cryptzone is a complete role based access control system, integrating all necessary security, VPN and access management functionality into one easy to manage solution.

The availability of the AppGate® Client for iPhone® and iPad® on the App Store® completes Cryptzone's range of VPN clients. Cryptzone's timely release of this secure mobile client comes a month after Apple announced a record 18.65m iPhone sales and 4.69m iPads during the second quarter. The consumerization of IT is resulting in more executives bringing their personal devices into the workplace and blurring the line between personal and corporate information.

Unless managed in a simple and secure way, these mobile devices expose organizations to an increased risk of unauthorized network access, data loss and compliance failure. Using the AppGate client for iPhone and iPad in conjunction with the AppGate Security Server ensures iOS based mobile devices are subject to the same corporate security policies and rules of access.

* Feature rich mobile working

AppGate supports secure access to email, intranet and other applications from an iPhone or iPad over standard bandwidth connections, which improves out-of-office productivity.

* Secure communication

All traffic, including login information, is encrypted end-to-end between the AppGate Security Server and the mobile, protecting the system from phishing or man-in-the-middle attacks.

* Strong authentication

AppGate supports a range of authentication methods including password, Radius and SecurID, SMS and chained authentication.

* Granular control of user access

Powerful rules and rights management tools give administrators complete control over user permissions. To further strengthen security, policies can be defined to limit access to particular servers or based on criteria harvested from the device.

* Data Leakage Prevention

When an iPhone or iPad is connected to Cryptzone's AppGate server all traffic flows through the secure VPN connection. This avoids split tunneling and reduces the risk of a data leak.

"Gone are the days when a corporate IT department could legitimately declare a complete ban on the use of personal mobile devices for business purposes," declares Peter Davin, CEO at Cryptzone. "A need for increased productivity and cost savings is driving demand for greater mobile access. AppGate's secure access solution simply enables organizations to cost-effectively manage all access to the network whatever the device being used."

The latest AppGate client enhances the wide range of platforms already supported by Cryptzone's AppGate Security Server, including PC, Apple Mac®, Microsoft Windows®, Symbian and Android® mobile devices. AppGate secures access, so people can be productive wherever they are working and however they choose to connect.
