nCircle Debuts nCircle Remote, Free Application for Apple iDevices
nCircle, the leader in information risk and security performance management solutions, today announced the availability of nCircle Remote, a new mobile iDevice application for the nCircle IP360vulnerability and risk management system. nCircle Remote allows users to start, monitor and view the results of critical vulnerability scans from a wide variety of Apple mobile devices, including iPhones and iPads. nCircle Remote makes it easy for users to keep track of vulnerability scans at all times and respond quickly to emergency security situations.
Network security is a 24/7 problem that requires constant vigilance. Rapid changes in the threat landscape require near-real time responses to protect critical business information. Vulnerability scans, a critical first line of defense in the protection of critical systems and business information, find and prioritize network vulnerabilities used by attackers to break into networks so that these weaknesses can be mitigated before an attack occurs.
The nCircle Remote mobile application offers IP360 users convenient and flexible options allowing them to start and monitor vulnerability scans while away from their desks or out of the office.
nCircle Remote is optimized for iOS 6.0 and is compatible with the following Apple products:
- iPhone 5
- iPhone 4 and 4S
- iPhone 3GS
- iPod touch (third, fourth and fifth generations)
"The nCircle Remote app extends IP360's capabilities to the Apple devices our enterprise customers are using more and more frequently," said Tim Erlin, nCircle's director of IT security and risk strategy. "The ability to start a scan or review results from an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch will deliver immediate efficiency gains to our customers."
