Fortinet has unveiled major key enhancements to address various challenges surrounding network, data and device security posed by the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) phenomenon. As part of its strategy to secure BYOD environments, Fortinet is introducing new versions of its FortiClient application for iOS and Android platforms.
The FortiClient application for Android platforms allows for both SSL tunnel mode and IPSec VPN connections to FortiGate appliances. The end-user connection is fully encrypted and all traffic is sent over a secure tunnel. The updated FortiClient application for iOS devices provides Web-mode SSL VPN functionality and has been modified for the iPad platform.
Kevin Flynn, Senior Product Manager, Fortinet, said, “While mobile devices have tremendous potential for enhancing productivity, the challenge for organizations today is to provide the same level of security regardless of the device or location of the user. We’re helping organizations of all sizes - from SMBs to large enterprises - deploy a robust BYOD security infrastructure that uniquely combines integrated wireless functions, embedded security technologies and simple, cost-effective licensing.”
