Secure data encryption tunneling for Apple iOS
Posted on 05 October 2011.
WatchGuard unveiled their new security technology designed for Apple iOS-enabled devices.

Mobile users often need to connect to corporate resources from high-risk locations, such as a free public Wi-Fi hot spots or hotel networks. By creating a mobile VPN connection via IPSec, WatchGuard customers with iOS devices will be able to create fast and easy VPN connections from anywhere to their WatchGuard XTM firewall appliance.


By doing so, an encrypted tunnel is created, which secures data traffic from an iOS device to the corporate network and other behind-the-firewall resources. Furthermore, this allows firewall policies and protections to be applied to authorized mobile users, which means WatchGuard customers with iOS devices will gain the benefits of gateway anti-virus, intrusion prevention and other security services to keep out hackers, spyware, malware and more.

WatchGuard's line of extensible threat management (XTM) security solutions consolidates essential security functions, such as stateful packet firewall, VPN, anti-spam, anti-spyware, anti-virus, content filtering and intrusion prevention in one easy to manage appliance.

The consolidation of these requisite security functions simplifies the security and compliance goals by reducing costs and time to deploy and manage. Due to their extensible and customizable design, customers can select security functions that best meet their network and IT environment.

The new WatchGuard iOS mobile support will be available for free to WatchGuard customers with current LiveSecurity subscriptions. It will be available worldwide Q4, 2011.
