Wavelink Further Strengthens Mobile Device Security With SecurePlus

Wavelink Avalanche SecurePlus Provides Advanced Security Against Unauthorized Access to Mobile Devices, Applications and Data

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - Sep 28, 2011) - Wavelink Corporation (www.wavelink.com) today announced the availability of the next generation of Wavelink® Avalanche® SecurePlus 1.1, which provides advanced user authentication and security for mobile devices. SecurePlus allows administrators to grant and restrict access to the device, applications and data, whether the device is connected to the network or not.

SecurePlus controls device and network access through an authenticated login. Policies can be enforced for login when the device is powered on or after a specified period of inactivity. Client-side intelligence protects the device against unauthorized use even when it is not connected to the network with automated lock-down features should the device fail any pre-defined network assurance tests. Administrators can remotely access a device when it is not in use and can generate a secure unlock code should a user forget their username and/or password.

"It is a constant challenge for enterprises today to maintain security of their mobile devices and the data on the device and network," said Martin Brewer, director of research and development for Wavelink. "SecurePlus offers a client-side solution that can be centrally managed in order to provide a high level of security for mobile devices, particularly in those critical moments when a device is lost or stolen."

The new version of SecurePlus has been updated to meet the changing security needs for mobile devices. New features in SecurePlus 1.1 include automated migration from CE Secure, Wavelink's predecessor to SecurePlus; an encryption update to 3DES (Triple DES) for stronger encryption without impacting client performance; and a wider range of client OS support.

SecurePlus can be centrally configured, deployed and managed with Wavelink Avalanche. When SecurePlus is used in conjunction with Avalanche Certificate Manager, administrators can control authentication to the network by allowing each user to authenticate using unique, individual digital certificates. Certificate Manager can automatically request certificate renewals and install certificates over the air.

Avalanche SecurePlus 1.1 is now available through Wavelink partners and representatives. Customers using Avalanche CE Secure can upgrade at no cost. For more information, please visit http://www.wavelink.com/p/mobile-device-and-network-security_resources.
