NCP provides users of Symbian OS-based mobile devices with secure access to the company network. The new IPSec client can be used, for example, on mobile devices such as the Nokia E-Series which run Symbian OS from V.9.0 on S60 3rd Edition. This again underlines NCP’s claim to offer security and state-of-the-art communications solutions for general data communication.
The functional scope of the software is based on that of the established Secure CE clients for the Windows mobile and Windows CE operating systems. Among other things, it has an assistant for the configuration PC, an intuitive graphical user interface on the mobile end device, and an integrated dynamic personal firewall. Other functions include automatic and secure set-up of the VPN configuration on the mobile end device via the mobile phone network, as well as support for authentication methods such as One-Time Password.
Like all NCP VPN clients, Secure Enterprise Client for Symbian can communicate with VPN gateways from different manufacturers, and is ideal for use in remote access VPN environments. This Client offers Endpoint Policy Enforcement for monitoring the centrally specified security policy. The software will be available in April. NCP Secure Entry Symbian Client follows in July.
