v13.2 - August 31, 2016

Initial Product Launch

The SOTI surf app combines a fully functional mobile browser with a variety of security features. Take advantage of our enterprise resource gateway to encrypt all traffic passing through the SOTI surf browser. It provides safe access to your internal network, allowing device users to seamlessly switch between internet and intranet. Additional security features include support for LDAP authentication, web site and content filtering and numerous data leakage prevention options that restrict browser features with the potential for security breaches.

Furthermore, SOTI surf provides restricted browsing via kiosk mode, allowing organizations to improve the productivity of their mobile users and protect on-device data by locking down the kiosk mode to specific intranet websites. SOTI surf in kiosk mode restricts device users to accessing specific websites in a single tab (with no address bar) with limited browser settings.

SOTI surf is available on devices running Android 4.0 or later, or iOS 8 or later. See our documentation for more information.

  • Secure access to your internal network without a VPN
  • LDAP authentication
