Check Point iConn VPN for iPhone

Check Point on Thursday launched its VPN and intrusion-prevention software for the iPhone. Check Point iConn VPN is designed to provide iPhone users with secure remote access to corporate network systems through VPN gateways. When working on corporate servers, users can do everything from e-mailing to accessing internal web portals, file servers and IP-based corporate applications.

iPhone users can gain access to a corporate network by entering the VPN settings, activating the iPhone VPN, and inserting a password. VPN administrators can also take advantage of the iPhone support, enabling specific login credentials for each individual accessing the network.

Check Point iConn VPN is compatible with the company's R65 gateway and is available from the App Store for free.

    That's great. Our company uses CheckPoint's VPN product. My only question is if this works with an iPod touch over WiFi, or only with an actual iPhone? Anyone know? The App Store doesn't mention it. It only says for iPhone so I'm not sure.

    Actual I have the same question, what I found on :
    is the following description.

    Check Point iConn VPNā„¢ is an IPSec VPN client for all Apple iPhone and iPod Touch devices running iPhone OS 2.0 and up. It delivers secure, uninterrupted remote access to enterprise email, critical business applications, and resources protected by Check Point Security Gateways. Users are provided a simple, intuitive and easy-to-use interface.

    I loaded the app on my PC bit I was not able to synchronise it with my iPod Touch running OS 3.0
