Next Generation High Speed WiFi Network in Sweden Provides Increased

Security With End-to-End Encryption and Identity Based Access

MILPITAS, Calif.–(EMWPresswire)–Array

Networks, a global leader in enterprise secure application delivery,

today announced that its SPX

SSL VPN technology is being deployed as an integral part of Telenors

new next generation nationwide WiFi network and wireless hotspot

deployment. Covering 24 cities in Sweden, Telenors

new service is the first to offer a nationwide secure broadband wireless

service at hotspots.

Previous hotspot solutions left people open to security vulnerabilities

such as spoofing, sniffing, man-in-the-middle attacks, etc. This created

security risks for users accessing their email accounts and bank

accounts from public wireless hotspots. By implementing Arrays

SPX SSL VPN technology, Telenors next

generation hotspots provide end-to-end encryption, and identity based

access to make it far less vulnerable to these risks without sacrificing

ease of use.

Telenor is deploying Arrays

SPX5000 Universal Access Controllers to provide end-to-end security

for all connections and to seamlessly provide segmented access based on

the identity of the user. With Array, Telenor gets the benefits of a

scalable platform architecture that not only handles the highest number

of concurrent users and provides the highest level of security with

utmost simplicity, but also provides future extensibility for other

service offerings.

“People now expect to able to be securely connected not just at home,

but wherever and whenever, said Mathias

Tonnesson, Director of Telenor WiFi. With our

new secure nationwide wireless network and our new service sakersurf, we

are able to secure even first generation unsecure wireless networks,

this helps to reduce the risk that someone improperly can access

personal information such as passwords. We extensively tested many

products from different vendors and found Array SPX5000s

SSL VPN based wireless LAN security offering to be the most scalable and

intuitive security solution to deploy and manage.”

The service went live on July 5th, 2008. The nationwide HotSpot services

will be initially offered for free for all users until

September. Additional services will be offered on top of this platform

in the future.

“We are pleased to announce this cooperation with Telenor and strongly

believe that it will deliver secure and innovative wireless mobility

services, said Michael Zhao, President and

CEO of Array Networks. Security has

been a missing element in most hotspot deployments. Telenor is taking a

leadership role in addressing this problem squarely. Security and

scalability are at the core of the Array products. We are constantly

finding new ways to offer the most intuitive, secure access solutions.”
