Samsung Selects AuthenTec's VPN Security for New Android Smartphones and Tablets
July 16, 2012 -- AuthenTec, Inc. today announced that Samsung has chosen its QuickSec VPN security for use in new Android smartphone and tablet models. AuthenTec's QuickSec Mobile VPN Client for Android enhances secure communication through an Internet Protocol security (IPsec)-based VPN client which is integrated in Samsung smartphones and tablets.
The integration of AuthenTec's VPN client means that Samsung Galaxy users now have built-in security and can more easily and safely connect to enterprise networks to access resources without sacrificing mobility. Samsung smartphones and tablets equipped with AuthenTec's VPN Client for Android are ready to connect to enterprise networks the moment they are unboxed, eliminating the need for IT administrators to install a separate VPN application.
AuthenTec's Mobile VPN Client for Android is a complete Mobile VPN solution tailored specifically for Android phones and tablets, and is based on AuthenTec's QuickSec technology. This VPN client solution has been thoroughly tested and proven for interoperability with all major VPN gateways and comes with a customizable user interface. QuickSec VPN Client for Android is robust enough for enterprise VPN access but as straightforward for phone and tablet users as entering a password or PIN. Some of the key features include complete IPsec, Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and above, IPv6, IKEv2 with MOBIKE, Xauth, EAP-based authentication, and split-tunneling support.
