Cisco’s AnyConnect VPN client for Android updated to version 3.0 . The new features in Android require any version Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) or Jelly Bean (4.1 and 4.2). Among the new features include the ability to reject untrusted certificates by default, and the use of an internal Certificate Authority server, which is not exposed to external threats by SCEP proxy.
Another new feature is that the client is now on Android devices with Intel processor running. The cryptographic module is now – by the way as BlackBerry 10 – FIPS 140-2 certified and therefore approved for use in some of the U.S. government.
AnyConnect VPN Client provides secure as anyone – because encrypted – connections to the corporate network via the Internet, allowing users to access their corporate email account and data. It is based on Google’s Android VPN Framework (AVF), which was introduced with Android 4.0.
In a blog entry says product marketing manager, John Oh, that Cisco is the trend toward Bring Your Own Device and even mitgehe. For example, you have “More than 20 percent of tablet use among our employees, and every month currently added 1000 mobile devices.”
AnyConnect does not exist only in Google Play , but in Amazon’s Android App Store . Thus, it supports Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablet and Kindle Fire HD, the software shipped from the Amazon -related offer. An older version is also available for iOS before. They will be launched shortly at the state, such as Cisco announces.
