Check Point announced its new Mobile Access Software Blade that delivers fast and secure access to corporate email, data and business applications from mobile devices. It integrates advanced SSL VPN capabilities and encryption technology to protect against security threats as users remotely connect to the corporate network.
As part of the solution, users can download the Check Point Mobile application for secure, one-touch access directly from mobile devices running on Apple, Android, Symbian and Windows PC platforms.
With certificate-based authentication and smart user-device pairing, businesses can ensure each individual has access to their authorized applications, just as they would from their desktop. This comprehensive approach helps IT administrators centrally manage security policies and applications, while end-users benefit from fast, secure access with single sign-on authorization.
“The CIOs we talk with struggle to keep up with all the devices their employees bring into the corporate network,” said Rufus Connell, vice president at Frost & Sullivan. “With Check Point’s new solution, we think you may see companies stop certifying individual devices themselves and deploy the Software Blade Architecture to eliminate the complexities of delivering security for mobile devices on their networks.”
