MobileIron Enhances iOS 7 App Security with Integrated Per-App VPN

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As companies become Mobile First organizations, they are transforming core business processes through mobile apps. Each of these apps must be secured without compromising the user experience. Some of these apps will be built by the enterprise while others will be downloaded from public app stores to allow the organization to leverage the innovation of the commercial app ecosystem.

Today, MobileIron, a leader in security and management for apps, content, and devices, announced MobileIron Tunnel to deliver an end-to-end solution for per-app VPN on iOS. Within its AppConnect ecosystem, MobileIron has already provided enterprise-grade security for apps built using the AppConnect framework. MobileIron Tunnel will extend the ability to secure data-in-motion to almost any App Store app that is managed by the enterprise.

Secure App Data in Motion
MobileIron Tunnel was purpose-built for the needs of mobile users and IT. Tunnel will allow organizations to authorize specific business apps, including both internally built apps and App Store apps, to access corporate resources behind the firewall. Unapproved and personal apps will be blocked from using Tunnel, which enhances security and protects user privacy. The result is that only business data will flow through Tunnel.

This per-app access will be dynamic and will be based not just on device and user identity but also on the overall security posture of the device. If the device is not compliant, Tunnel will block even authorized apps from accessing the enterprise. Devices fall in and out of compliance regularly, especially in BYOD programs, making such dynamic access control essential.

Streamline Authentication
Tunnel will also simplify authentication through its support of iOS 7 single sign on (SSO). MobileIron's ability to proxy Kerberos will allow iOS 7 SSO to be used with devices that are not on the corporate network without needing to expose the Kerberos Key Distribution Center (KDC). This will protect both data-in-motion and the customer's Kerberos infrastructure. For example, Tunnel will enable Apple's Safari browser to securely access intranet sites behind the firewall with transparent authentication so that users do not have to re-enter their usernames and passwords as they go from site to site.

The unique power of Tunnel is that it combines the secure transport of traditional VPN with certificate-based identity and posture-based policy, all managed through a single console. This will simplify both enterprise access for the user and data security for IT.

"Our customers want total freedom to be able to choose the right apps for their business, but they can't compromise on security or the user's expectation of a great experience," said Sean Convery, Vice President of Product at MobileIron. "MobileIron Tunnel will bridge the gap between traditional information security requirements and the mobile application explosion that is reshaping the IT landscape."
