Nokia today released an upgrade to its Secure Access System, a virtual private network (VPN) offering that contains Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

The system provides secure remote access to e-mail, personal information management (PIM) data, corporate intranets and applications from any public Internet kiosk, terminal, laptop or wireless device.

Secure Access System 2.1 also contains Secure Workplace, a feature that the company says is designed to maximize security without limiting the way users work.

Secure Workplace creates a separate work environment on laptops, home PCs, public kiosk terminals or other remote access devices to safeguard data created in a secure session.

Its design prevents users from inadvertently sharing sensitive information by disabling copying and pasting from the secure environment to any non-secure applications. Users are, however, permitted to copy from a non-secure environment and paste into it.
