      Patent Lawsuit Against Apple Forces Enterprises to Scramble Over iOS VPN Functionality
      By Steve Ragan on April 10, 2013

      Patent Lawsuit Against Apple Forces Change in iOS VPN On Demand Functionality - Enterprises and Vendors Scramble

      Next to Android, Apple’s iOS is the most widely used mobile operating system in the world. Enterprises and SMBs rely (sometimes with little choice otherwise) on it to enable employees to work anywhere at anytime. A recent lawsuit against Apple has forced the tech giant to alter the way iOS handles VPN traffic, and will be changing the behavior of the “VPN On Demand” function for iOS devices using iOS 6.1 and later. As a result, enterprises and security vendors are going have to scramble in order to find scalable solutions.

      The lawsuit against Apple made headlines because it was focused on FaceTime. The court case happened because VirnetX, a patent troll in Nevada that has already won similar cases against Microsoft and who recently filed for a new trial against Cisco, claimed that Apple was abusing its intellectual property. However, other aspects of that lawsuit addressed the On Demand VPN features that were shipped with iOS.

      These days, mobile is the hot topic in the business world because these devices offer fast access to data and other information. These always on, Internet ready assets have been proven to increase productivity, as they allow people to share resources and information faster. Forms stored and processed on a phone can close sales quicker, product data is shared in real-time during a client briefing, and business contacts are available at the touch of a button, thanks to cloud-based applications.

    • Sorry forgot to finish the title. Article about Apple ,Virnetx,turning off vpn and the vendors scrambling. Apple really is stupid and will try anything not to pay VHC for what they steal.
