First solution for auto-configuration of iPhone VPN access
Astaro users with iPhones can now automatically setup a secure, IPsec VPN tunnel with no technical knowledge required. This new process adds yet another method that iPhone users can use to connect to Astaro Gateway products. In addition to the iPhone’s PPTP and L2TP VPN connectivity options, Astaro users can now use the iPhones IPsec VPN capabilities—widely accepted as the best security choice for VPN tunneling—to connect to their home and business networks.
While others simply offer compatibility with iPhone’s Cisco VPN client, requiring manual configuration steps which need technical knowledge and information to complete, Astaro allows anyone to set up a configured tunnel in seconds through its automatic configuration.
This process drastically simplifies VPN setup for the end user, and also provides assurance that the tunnel has been set up securely and correctly.Ã‚Â The user logs into the Astaro Security Gateway UserPortal via the browser and clicks the Install iPhone VPN button. From there, the setup is automated with all technical parameters being filled in without the need to manually enter them. Astaro is the first product of its kind to offer a customized configuration download which is simply imported into the iPhone OS.
Astaro has created a configuration guide providing step-by-step instructions on how to configure Apple’s iPhone and Astaro Security Gateway VPN settings.
