In May, we spoke to Joanie Wexler, a regular contributor to Network World’s WirelessAlert column, about the ways IPsec and SSL differ. Joanie told us that many people still associate smartphone security with SSL. But increasingly, this misconception is falling away and more organizations are demanding transparent VPN clients, like IPsec, for their mobile devices. We caught up with Joerg Hirschmann of NCP engineering to get his thoughts on this. What are you seeing? Do people still equate smartphone security devices with SSL – or is the tide turning in favor of IPsec?
