NCP Releases First Ever Universal IPsec Clients for Android
by VPNHaus | 07/24/2012 |Uncategorized
Remaining at the front of the pack as always, today NCP engineering announced the release of two versions of its IPsec client that supports the Android 4.0 platform, the NCP Secure Android Client and Premium Android Client.
The clients can be downloaded from Google Play and there is the option of a free 10-day trial. Outside of highly-secure access to corporate networks from all Android applications, including terminal-server clients and e-mail clients, the VPN clients also ensure seamless integration with the major enterprise VPN gateways: Cisco, Juniper, WatchGuard, Checkpoint, Microsoft Server 2008 R2 and others.
Other features include:
- Both versions can be installed without rooting the operation system, and boast user-friendly graphical interfaces.
- Premium users can take advantage of an "auto reconnect" feature. For example, VPN connections interrupted by dead zones or changes in the transmission network, automatically reestablish connectivity. The premium software provides comprehensive protection against unauthorized access and supports one-time-passwords (OTP) and PKI certificates.
- When used in conjunction with the NCP Secure Enterprise VPN Server, the NCP Path Finder Technology enables secure VPN connections, even when IPsec connections are blocked via firewalls.
- NCP's VPN software supports all technical communications and security standards including Internet Key Exchange (IKE) v1 and 2, IP address assignment via local IP address or IKE config mode, pre-shared key or PKCS#12 certificate support, XAUTH, and split and full tunneling network access.
NCP has shown a strong commitment to staying on top of the latest trends in operating systems and mobile capabilities, already offering clients compatible with the Windows 8 Beta as well. Please stay tuned for more exciting updates!
