AppGate Network Security Launches version 7.1 of the AppGate Security Server, adding MS Exchange synchronization for mobile devices.

The ability to synchronize calendar and contacts on mobile devices with MS Exchange over the AppGate secure tunnel has been added. The Exchange synchronization has been tested on the Nokia 9300/9500 and Sony Ericsson P800/P900/P910.

Many companies use VLAN tagging on their networks to segment off wireless (802.11) traffic. Version 7.1 supports VLAN tagging so with a single connection directly into the network infrastructure the AppGate server can now control access to/from the wireless infrastructure.

One other new feature has been implemented specifically to make users lives easier. It is now possible to enable single sign-on to web based applications. This feature works on HTTP based applications using password authentication.

In a world where network perimeters are becoming harder to define, building a secure wall around the corporate network is not a solution. Mobile users and 3G connectivity makes it hard to define what is inside and what is outside of a company’s network. Solving all access problems with today’s security products often results in a complex environment comprising many different products each addressing one issue.

“From now on security products have to behave differently. With AppGate’s integration of many security features into a single system and with our ‘single point of power’ concept, it is now possible to deploy a user-friendly system and increase security at the same time. AppGate protects application servers, end point devices and provisions secure access, without the need to rebuild the network infrastructure every time the organization changes” says Mr. Tomas Olovsson, CTO of AppGate

The 7.1 improvements build on existing proven functionality in the AppGate Security Server such as:

Distributed Personal Firewall
Authentication and encryption
Customisation toolkit
Secure Instant Messaging
Client check
Full application support
Cache cleaning
Secure single sign on
Secure print
Rights management
URL filtering
Mobile VPN roaming
