NEW YORK -- Mobile security solutions provider Columbitech today announced that its Wireless VPN solution includes support for Symbian OS(TM) 9.1. Adding support for Symbian to Columbitech's existing portfolio of mobile VPN solutions that includes Windows XP and Windows Mobile 5, presents Columbitech Wireless VPN as the world's first and only mobile VPN to support laptops as well as both Windows and Symbian-based smartphones and PDAs.
The use of smartphones for remote access to corporate resources and business applications puts a new challenge on security solutions. The same security applied in the wired world is required for secure communications via mobile devices. As a result, Columbitech has developed a mobile VPN solution to support all mobile devices targeted at the enterprise market.
"Introducing Symbian as one of the platforms for our wireless VPN reflects our dedication to the development of a holistic and platform-independent security solution," said Lars Resenius, CEO of Columbitech. "By addressing the specific requirements of security combined with mobility and ease-of-use, we have created a product line that is one of the most widely deployed mobile VPN products in the world with more than 1.4 million client licenses sold. Support for Symbian 9.1 is a natural part of our mission to provide our customers with a complete security solution that enables new mobile services and increased data revenues."
