Last Mile VPN: Staying Secure in a Mobile First World

More than ever, mobile professionals are turning to global Wi-Fi to perform crucial business tasks. Those include accessing video conferencing services, collaboration software and cloud-based applications.

But since you use Wi-Fi to access sensitive company information, that Wi-Fi connection has to be absolutely secure. Although it might be available at your favorite coffee shop, free Wi-Fi is anything but free. Unsecured, free Wi-Fi connections are the key points of entry for man-in-the-middle attacks, packet sniffing, identity spoofing, and other security risks and privacy erosions. Free Wi-Fi could bring your business to its knees.

Our Last Mile VPN white paper addresses steps your company can take to mitigate the risks mobile professionals face when using free Wi-Fi. Those steps include educating end users about the need to use corporate VPNs (Virtual Private Network).

But not all businesses have corporate VPNs, and not all mobile users choose to deploy the corporate VPNs they do have, especially if those solutions are not seamless. Moreover, many enterprises have implemented “split-tunnel” VPNs that only protect data between the user and the enterprise, leaving traffic for outside destinations unencrypted.

So for mobile professionals, we have created an added layer of security with the iPass Last Mile VPN, providing VPN tunneling for traffic over any Wi-Fi hotspot, not just those within the iPass network.

The Last Mile VPN delivers global hotspot security, where the end user is most vulnerable: between the user and iPass’ secure Internet gateway.
