CudaLaunch offers secure remote access to your organization's applications and data from mobile devices. It is available for iOS and Android devices via the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Both versions offer the similar functionality. Full Device VPN uses the same VPN group policy. CudaLaunch on Android uses our own TINA VPN client; CudaLaunch on iOS manages the built-in IPsec VPN client.
