Open Haus: Graphical User Interface

by VPNHaus | 09/30/2015 |VPN

Not long ago, the old aphorism "look but don't touch" applied to computers and mobile devices. There were no touch screens, no tapping or pinching, no complicated gestures a user could issue with their fingertips. All that touching a screen would do was leave behind fingerprints.

That all changed in 2007, when Apple brought touch screens into the mainstream with the first-generation iPhone, back then a first-of-its-kind touch-screen smartphone. Since then, keyboards have all but vanished from smartphones, and touch screens are now replacing or augmenting keyboards on larger devices.

Global shipments of touch-screen displays are expected to double from 1.3 billion in 2012 to 2.8 billion in 2016. Already, touch-screen displays have moved from smartphones to tablets to, increasingly, desktops and laptops. Even as far back as 2013, one in 10 laptops were already equipped with a touch screen.

Given this landscape, any program that runs on smartphones, tablets or computers now needs to be touch-screen compatible – that is to say, it requires a touch-screen compatible, graphically intuitive display that can also be scaled to whatever device the user has. Users demand this functionality, and users of NCP engineering's remote access VPN clients now have access to just that for employees working on-the-go on a range of devices.

How It Works

Enhanced touch-screen compatibility is a core update to the latest version of the NCP Secure Clients that is intended to improve the user experience on touch-screen devices, such as Windows tablets and smartphones.

Displays within NCP VPN clients are also intuitive and easy-to-use. Independent of the device or operating system, all remote access VPN clients provide a comprehensive listing of connections and security statistics, giving the user the ability to constantly monitor all phases of the connection. If an error occurs, the user will see it displayed in red, thereby simplifying troubleshooting and support. Users can also access tips and other information quickly and in clear text.

These days, as keyboards, mice and track pads decline in prominence, the display is often the only part of a device that a user interacts with, so if it's not intuitive and easy-to-understand, it will lead to a poor user experience. That's what NCP is trying to avoid.

Open Haus is a monthly series that explores the key features of NCP’s Remote Access VPN.
