Free Secure VPN Gateway for iPad Users

Astaro : 20 May, 2010  (New Product)
Astaro has extended its security gateway to provide mobile network access to iPad users at no charge
Astaro Corporation has announced that iPad users can securely connect to their business or home networks using the Astaro Security Gateway. This feature is included in the professional edition as well as in the Essential Firewall and Home Use edition that are both available for free.

The Astaro Security Gateway supports PPTP, L2TP and IPSec Virtual Private Network (VPN) connections, allowing users to establish secure network connections with the iPad. Employees at companies using the Astaro Security Gateway can connect their iPad to their company's network without having to purchase any new applications or additional networking equipment.

"The iPad has achieved massive sales numbers and shows strong consumer demand for this type of device, and businesses will have to face the issue of how employees can securely use it for business tasks while on the road," said Gert Hansen, Vice President Product Management at Astaro. "Connecting to the network with the Astaro Security Gateway means employees can securely access their resources via the iPad. This feature is not reserved to Astaro customers as it is also included in the Essential Firewall edition that is free for business use."

Additionally, private users can connect their iPad to their home networks using the Home Use edition of the Astaro Security Gateway, which is a full version of the security appliance available for free to all home users. iPad users are not forced to purchase additional products in order to get the most out of their initial investment in the iPad. Setting up the VPN connection is very easy, so no extensive technical knowledge is required.

Hansen continued: "The iPad has a lot of great personal uses such as watching movies and TV using apps like AirVideo. With the Astaro Security Gateway Home Use edition, iPad users can access multimedia content on their home network wherever they have connectivity to the Internet. For example, they can watch their favorite series while waiting for their train to arrive."

Astaro allows anyone to set up a configured tunnel to an iPad, iPhone or iPod in seconds through its automatic configuration. This process simplifies VPN setup for the end user and also provides assurance that the tunnel has been configured correctly and securely.

An easy guide how to establish a VPN connection between iPad/iPhone and the Astaro Security Gateway can be found on the Astaro website.
