By CBR Staff Writer

Check Point Software Technologies has unveiled new Mobile Access Software Blade, which is designed to provide secure access to corporate email, data and business applications from mobile devices.

The company said that its new offering integrates SSL VPN capabilities and encryption technology to protect against security threats as users remotely connect to the corporate network.

As part of the offering, the company is offering the Check Point Mobile application that can be downloaded directly from mobile devices running on Apple, Android, Symbian and Windows PC platforms.

Check Point Software Technologies vice president of products Dorit Dor said their approach is to simplify mobile security for businesses and their employees.

"Users can go to the Apple app store and download the free Check Point Mobile application, enter their login and password, and instantly gain secure access to their corporate data," Dor said.

Check Point said that its new Mobile Access Software Blade features certificate-based authentication and smart user-device pairing, which facilitates businesses to ensure individuals having access to their authorised applications only.
