NCP engineering’s Secure Enterprise VPN Server Now Integrates with Apple iOS
Secure authentication of iOS devices enables remote mobile device VPN access
classification of iPhone and iPads
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- November 14, 2012
NCP engineering today announced the NCP Secure Enterprise VPN Server now
integrates with Apple’s iOS to perform certificate-based authentication to
control network access of iPhones and iPads.
In this era of Bring-Your-Own-Device, users increasingly prefer to access the
company network via various devices, often applying a standard username and
password across them all. With its iOS secure authentication, NCP enables IT
administrators to use certificates to control assignment rights on these end
devices – without interfering with the user-determined username and passwords.
*Apple’s mobile device management (MDM) distributes various certificates to
all authorized iOS devices. When users establish VPN tunnels from their
devices, the NCP Secure Enterprise VPN Server uses these certificates to
determine whether the user is accessing the network via a notebook, iPad
or iPhone and subsequently assigns centrally-defined rights.
*This enables network administrators to, for example, allow a Windows or
Mac OS X notebook full access rights, while limiting iOS devices to
partial access to the central network. Users are unable to decipher or
manipulate the certificates, significantly reducing the risk of
certifications being duplicated for unauthorized devices.
*With its iOS compatibility, NCP enables end users and enterprises to
leverage the latest devices and operating systems, while maintaining
secure remote access with its easy-to-use yet powerful VPN software. NCP's
hybrid Secure Enterprise VPN Server is also available for Windows and
Linux in 32 and 64 bit versions and supports all VPN technologies.
