GlobalSign Launches iOS Device Authentication Solution For Enterprises

New iOS Identity Certificates allow organizations to control mobile device access to key business applications

Boston, MA, December 8th, 2011- GlobalSign (www.globalsign.com), one of the leading providers of Digital Certificates worldwide, today announced the launch of iOS Identity Certificates for iOS Authentication. iOS Identity Certificates are Digital Certificates designed specifically for the use with iOS devices (iPad, iTouch, iPhone, etc) to allow Certificate-based authentication to control access to corporate business services such as Exchange, ActiveSync, VPNs, WPA2, and Enterprise Wi-Fi networks.

Every day the number of Enterprises and employees relying on iOS devices to conduct business is increasing, giving Enterprises and users flexibility to stay connected whether in the office or on the road. While this increased level of connectivity is beneficial for the Enterprise, opening sensitive business services to mobile device users creates serious security risks and vulnerabilities that must be addressed.

GlobalSign’s iOS Authentication solution mitigates these risks by allowing certificate-based authentication. Network Administrators can issue Certificates to approved mobile devices, allowing users to access business services without relinquishing employee control of their mobile devices.

iOS identity Certificates are packaged as an Enterprise PKI (ePKI) solution, using GlobalSign’s robust SaaS platform for managing multiple Digital Certificates. Key benefits to the ePKI service include:

- Easy management of Certificate lifecycles (issuing, revoking, cancelling, reissuing, etc.)

- Streamlined distribution of configuration profiles using the iPhone configuration utility, including passcode policies, Wi-Fi, VPNs, Exchange ActiveSync, or applications

- Simplified Certificate delivery with over-the-air enrollment

“The threat network access via mobile devices poses to organizations was a hot topic at many security conferences this year, including RSA and EWF”, said Lila Kee, Chief Product Officer, GlobalSign US. “We believe our iOS Identity Certificates are a perfect fit for the ‘bring your own device’ era. By offering an easy to implement and cost-effective device authentication solution, they allow organizations to balance employee desire to use their own iOS devices for work and the need to protect against unauthorized access to key business applications.”

Organizations can purchase iOS Identity Certificates for as few as 5 users starting at an introductory pricing of $425/ per year for 1 year validity certificates. Other volume pricing and validity periods are available; please contact GlobalSign to learn more.
