Pocket PC access to VPN with firewall.

NCP Engineering : 05 March, 2008  (New Product)
Strong security for hand held devices enabled by universal VPN client with firewall for Palm Treo 750v.
The Palm Treo 750v, running under the Windows Mobile 5/6 operating system, can be integrated and centrally administered via a virtual private network (VPN) using existing infrastructure with the Secure CE Client from NCP Engineering GmbH, a provider of communications software. With a VPN, a secure connection is achieved over public lines, e.g. for accessibility by field service personnel to company headquarters via the internet.

"In combination with the VPN client from NCP, the Palm Treo 750v is open for any desired applications. In this way, Palm Treo 750v users can not only open emails and process them, but also access the server, or databases on the local network. And all that with the highest level of security," explained Wolfgang Weiss, marketing manager at Palm Germany GmbH.

The NCP Secure CE Entry Client and the NCP Secure Enterprise CE Client enable the construction of a VPN tunnel between the Palm Treo 750v and the VPN gateway in the company. The secure CE client connects mobile devices with VPN gateways from many manufacturers, using universal IPSec-based VPN software.

The NCP Client supports powerful encryption and authentication mechanisms; additionally, they are provided with a personal firewall. The personal firewall works dynamically and enables the specification of defined filter rules, depending on the respective network environment, as well as secure release of network access to public WLANs (hotspots) via the browser. Additionally, the Secure Enterprise CE Client inclines toward central management functions for the administration of mobile terminals. It aligns the configuration of the pocket PC with the security directives on the policy server in the company network.

In the case of email push services, a special connection mode ensures automatic re-establishment of the VPN tunnel to the central VPN gateway. In order to make handling of the VPN Client as simple as possible for the user, both clients employ design assistants for PC configuration and an intuitive graphical user interface at the mobile terminal.

NCP solutions will be shown live at Information Security Europe in London, Booth H201, 22 - 24 April.
