Birdstep SafeMove SSL VPN Secures the BYOD Trend for Consultants, Contractors and Other Occasional Connections
OSLO, Norway – May 23rd, 2012– Birdstep Technology ASA (www.birdstep.com), a leading provider of wireless connectivity and security software, announced today the launch of its SafeMove Clientless SSL VPN, offering easy, secure and efficient remote access to the enterprise network.
While Birdstep’s full SafeMove Mobile VPN system is designed to secure company-issued equipment and the connections of these devices, the Clientless SSL VPN is suited for occasional connections from home computers and web kiosks, as well as remote access by external consultants and contractors.
Birdstep introduces SafeMove Clientless SSL VPN at Enterprise Mobility Exchange 2012, May 21 – 23 in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
“With more flexible working practices and the increase in virtual consultants and contractors, business is increasingly conducted outside the office and on employees’ own devices,” said Anders Harrysson, CEO and president of Birdstep. “SafeMove makes the mobile worker BYOD trend more secure, offering a full remote access solution for all your devices from laptops to smartphones to these occasional connections.”
“Our recently launched SafeMove Mobile Access and this upcoming SafeMove SSL VPN complement Birdstep’s basic SafeMove Mobile VPN. With this suite of solutions we can provide full remote access and SafeMove as a Service if needed to unburden the company’s own IT resources,” Harrysson added.
The SafeMove clientless SSL VPN solution enables easy access to corporate internal networks, file systems and web-based applications from any standard web browser. The system offers strong authentication and fine grained access control, without requiring software installation or administrator privileges on the client system.

- Well suited for occasional connections to the enterprise network.

- Does not require any client software installations.
- User can sign on to the portal with his/her Windows user name and password.
