Finally, the real leaders of enterprise security are providing real solutions that even the small enterprise can afford. Now the mobile workforce can work with BB, Nokia, Iphones and iPads, Droid/ CIUS or Motorola X. The chosen mobile hand held device will become secondary to the secure IT platform such as the “AnyConnect” solution from Cisco.
Here is the note if you did not see the release.
The Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility client delivers ubiquitous access to authenticated users, enabling increased productivity by providing “anytime access” to the network. In addition, the client provides full tunnel connectivity while being versatile, lightweight, and user-friendly. AnyConnect users can now have an in-office experience to virtually any application or resource from their iPhone without compromising device battery or performance. Finally, the Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility client provides an optimized VPN connection (via DTLS) for latency-sensitive traffic, such as voice over IP (VoIP) traffic or TCP-based application access.
Enterprise customers can then leverage Cisco AnyConnect & SSL VPN for secure & mobile-friendly connectivity to their corporate resources, enabling to them to truly enterprise-enable their iPhone/iPod touch/iPad mobile workforce.
Cisco is really stepping up to the mobile workforce helping build the bridge that makes the mobile workforce work. This is good news for everyone.
