While Birdstep’s full SafeMove Mobile VPN system is designed to secure company-issued equipment and the connections of these devices, the Clientless SSL VPN is suited for occasional connections from home computers and web kiosks, as well as remote access by external consultants and contractors.
"With more flexible working practices and the increase in virtual consultants and contractors, business is increasingly conducted outside the office and on employees’ own devices," said Anders Harrysson, CEO and president of Birdstep. "SafeMove makes the mobile worker BYOD trend more secure, offering a full remote access solution for all your devices from laptops to smartphones to these occasional connections."
"Our recently launched SafeMove Mobile Access and this upcoming SafeMove SSL VPN complement Birdstep’s basic SafeMove Mobile VPN. With this suite of solutions we can provide full remote access and SafeMove as a Service if needed to unburden the company’s own IT resources," Harrysson added.
The SafeMove clientless SSL VPN solution enables easy access to corporate internal networks, file systems and web-based applications from any standard web browser.
The system offers strong authentication and fine grained access control, without requiring software installation or administrator privileges on the client system.
