Birdstep incorporates Cisco into SafeMove


Birdstep Technology, provider of secure and seamless wireless connectivity, has announced that the technologies incorporated in its SafeMove roaming solutions are broadly supported in enterprise and mobile operator networks and now supported in Cisco's network routing solutions.

Based upon broadly adopted industry standards (mobile IP and IPSec), SafeMove Client establishes and maintains network connections on multiple device platforms with the minimum of effort so users enjoy a fully productive, LAN-like experience wherever their work takes them.

'The physical server consolidation opportunity offered by the SRE-V, the right size hardware profile provided by the SRE blades, combined with Birdstep SafeMove server, all integrated and housed under a single chassis, makes an ideal all-in-one solution for companies looking for rich collection of industry standard connectivity and seamless roaming services.'Added Anders Harrysson, CEO and president at Birdstep: 'Mobile connectivity has progressed from a former luxury to today's business necessity. Demand for remote access to network services has rapidly shifted to a need for continuous, seamless, and secure access to these services. Birdstep SafeMove provides the ideal framework to deliver highly secure network services to mobile workers anytime and anywhere.'
