Secure the VPN tunnel to your mobile devices

Upload one or more CA certificates to MVISION Cloud in the UI.

McAfee Mobile Cloud Security uses CA certificates to create a secure VPN tunnel between the VPN gateway and the devices, as follows.

  • MDM server software — Uses the CA certificate to sign device certificates.
  • VPN gateway — Uses the CA certificate to authenticate the signed device certificates.

Important: After you upload the first CA certificate, the VPN Gateway Address is displayed. Copy and save this value. You need it when configuring the MDM server software.
