With a built-in RFC 2865 compliant RADIUS server that supports EAP/TLS and PEAP, DualShield can be easily implemented to protect Mobile VPN connection with strong, two-factor authentication.
A mobile virtual private network (mobile VPN or mVPN) provides mobile devices with access to network resources and software applications on their home network, when they connect via other wireless or wired networks.
Mobile VPNs are designed to handle common wireless-network challenges more efficiently than IPSEC and SSL VPN. For example, when roaming from Ethernet to Wi-Fi to WWAN, mobile VPNs handle the transitions transparently with no impact to the application session. If a user hits a coverage gap or suspends a device to preserve battery life, a mobile VPN allows the user to resume right where he left off. In the same situation, an IPSec or SSL VPN user may lose his VPN session, lose valuable data and has to log back in and restart applications.
Mobile VPN products, such as NetMotion Mobility XE, commonly support RADIUS authentication protocol. With a built-in, fully-compliant RADIUS server which supports EAP/TLS and PEAP, DualShield can be easily implemented to protect Mobile VPN connection with two-factor authentication.
