Juniper makes VPNs a snap on the iPhone
Juniper has released its Junos Pulse, which aims to make corporate access to internal resources easy for mobile users of the iPhone and the iPod Touch.
Juniper Networks has announced the release of its Junos Pulse app, which provides secure remote mobile access to corporate resources on an iPhone or iPod Touch. The app is now available to download via the Apple iTunes App Store.
Apart from allowing corporate users to access assets while on the move, the app also works with Apple's own VPN-on-demand. The app claims to be able to conserve battery power, disconnecting from the VPN when the iPhone goes into standby and reactivating the link when needed.
Mark Bauhaus, executive vice president and general manager of Juniper's Service Layer Technologies Business Group said on the release of the app: "Instant and seamless secure access to corporate resources including applications, email, contacts and the intranet are all critical elements demanded by employees of any successful organization. We worked with Apple to ensure the Junos Pulse App enables the productivity that enterprise users are demanding and are very excited that it is now available on the App Store. Juniper's market-leading SSL VPN solution will keep any enterprise mobile, secure, empowered and working more efficiently."
The app only works on Apple devices with an OS version of 4.1 or later. On the infrastructure side, customers must have a Juniper Networks SA Series SSL VPN Appliance running version 6.4 or later.
