Mobile VPN Connectivity for iPhone, iPad and Android

NetPilot has launched a new VPN facility called Mobile VPN, specifically targeted at catering for roaming users with mobile devices. It provides secure SSL VPN connectivity from iPhone, iPad and Android to the organisation's network protected by NetPilot or SoHoblue security appliances.

Mobile VPN brings a new class of functionality for NetPilot and SoHoblue users and Network Managers, simplifying VPN deployment for remote workers and adding support for iOS and Android devices. Mobile VPN provides similarly secure connectivity users currently enjoy for Windows and Macs (desktop and laptops), but now for the mobile world of tablets and smart phones.

Currently supported platforms include iOS, Android, Windows and Linux.  Mobile VPN uses a combination of username/password security and X.509 SSL certificates to combine ease of deployment with high security. As well as the new support for iOS and Android devices, an additional benefit of the Mobile VPN implementation is that all VPN configuration is now greatly streamlined configuring a new client on the NetPilot/SoHoBlue is now as simple as creating a new user account.  Thus deployments for Windows client devices are now simplified too!

Some of the key points include:

•  Secure remote access to central site
•  Multiple profile support to allow differing connections*
•  Secure remote desktop / email / file server access
•  Ideal for Network Managers on the move
•  Uses full SSL encryption so gives total security
•  Works with your mobile devices operating over G3/G4 or Wi-Fi

The new Mobile Functionality is incorporated v6.1.11 software for NetPilot and SoHoBlue units. The NetPilot Mobile VPN client end - the App - is free-of-charge.

Download the App for your mobile device from here:

IPhone - iPhone Download
IPad - iPad Download
Android - Android Download

*Windows and Linux client implementations allow for multiple simultaneous active VPN sessions with multiple profiles. Currently, iOS and Android restrictions mean that you may have multiple profiles, but only one active connection at any point in time.
