Alcatel-Lucent teamed with SafeNet to offer enterprise customers a wireless laptop security, management and tracking system that operates transparently to mobile users.
Using Alcatel-Lucent’s OmniAccess 3500 Nonstop Laptop Guardian wireless platform, IT staff can address the “mobile blindspot” by remotely protecting sensitive data on employees’ mobile laptops even when the laptop is powered off, lost or stolen.
A key product feature developed by Alcatel-Lucent using the SafeNet toolkit is Auto-VPN connection. With no user action, a VPN IPsec connection is established automatically – every time the user goes online. With this feature, consistent security is always enforced, as users are always behind the enterprise firewalls.
By embedding SafeNet’s QuickSec VPN software, Alcatel-Lucent is able to build advanced IPSec VPN security features and seamless roaming directly into the core of the Omni Access 3500 Nonstop Laptop Guardian wireless platform.
