Aruba Networks Offers VIA as iTunes App for Apple iOS Users
Aruba Networks continues to make moves to address the proliferation of mobile devices in the workplace. This time, the company has made VIA, the Virtual Intranet Access Application, available as a downloadable app for Apple users. Features and details follow …
[VIA has a] Wi-Fi-aware VPN application [that] enables seamless security on both public and private wireless networks. VIA builds on Aruba’s Remote Networking portfolio, which offers automatic configuration of wireless device settings, requiring zero-touch for the end-user.
Aruba Networks decided to build the VIA app after the company saw an influx in demand of mobile infrastructure management as well as a need for an application that properly and securely provides VPN access. VIA’s features include location and device-based policies, diagnostic information and “military-grade Suite B cryptography” when using the ArubaOS cryptography add-on.
