How to Use Windows Mobile with a CISCO VPN Solution

Customers who have a CISCO VPN solution and want to extend it out to Windows Mobile devices need to look no further than the Bluefire VPN Client.

The company says its Mobile Security Suite 3.5 and Mobile Security VPN 2.0 applications have been certified interoperable with Cisco's VPN 3000 Concentrator.  The Mobile Security VPN 2.0 is a IPSec virtual private network client bundled with RSA's BSAFE Encryption, and compliant with Federal Information Processing Standards 140-2 (FIPS 140-2). It operates seamlessly across LAN, WLAN, GPRS/EDGE and 1xRTT/1EV-DO with no user intervention required.

Here are a few more features of the Bluefire VPN Client

  • FIPS 140-2 Compliant.
    Utilizing Microsoft’s CryptoAPI™ library, the Bluefire VPN meets stringent federal guidelines as established by the National Institute of Standards and Technology in the Federal Information Processing Standards 140-2. (Please note: The Palm version of Bluefire's VPN is not FIPS 140-2 compliant.)
  • NAT-T enabled (Network Address Translation Traversal).
    Allows for multiple IPSec clients behind a NAT to be distinguished.
  • Built to IPSec standards.
    The VPN software client easily fits in the existing network infrastructure and configuration.

      I came across your site while digging for VPN solutions for my HTC Touch Pro2 on WM6.5 – A note to follow up on your post here.  Bluefire Security is defunct 🙁

      Do you, or anyone else know of any good IPSEC VPN solutions that work with WM65?
