FIPS-validated mobile VPN for iPhone and iPad
Columbitech announced the availability of the enterprise-grade mVPN Secure Browser 5.0, which supports the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
The browser provides secure access to intranet resources and other Web-based applications behind an organization’s firewall without degrading the performance of the connection. It supports mutual two-factor authentication with unique client certificates.
It also provides integrity monitoring (SHA-1) of all data in motion as well as support for network access control. The Columbitech VPN is FIPS 140-2-validated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
The Columbitech mVPN Secure Browser is built from the ground up for protection of wireless devices. It provides a persistent network connection with seamless roaming across wireless networks as users move around and switch between Wi-Fi and cellular networks or temporarily lose coverage. Advanced data compression provides up to 100 percent faster throughput, optimizing the performance of all Web applications.
“The Columbitech mVPN Secure Browser for iPhone and iPad helps organizations realize their BYOD strategy by creating a secure separation between how users access personal and enterprise data on the device,” said Tobias Englund, president of Columbitech. “The secure browser functions like a secure container and lets organizations lock down important applications and browser’s access to sensitive data in real time, and without storing any data on the device.”
