Mobile devices secured with VPN client

NCP Engineering : 21 November, 2008  (New Product)
IPSec VPN client compatible with wider range of platforms including mobile systems such as CE and Symbian
NCP engineering has announced the 9.1 version of the NCP Secure Enterprise Client.

Available in the UK and across Europe on 5th December, this major upgrade to NCP's universal IPSec VPN client will provide users a flexible, intuitive, bundled client for any Windows-based (Mobile, CE, XS/Vista/32/64-bit) or Symbian system (S60 3rd Edition). The client is seamlessly compatible with any gateway on the market.

The bundled solution is equipped with a dynamic personal firewall, intuitive and user-friendly GUI, data encryption, Friendly Net Detection, and one-time password token and certificate support through a public key infrastructure (PKI). It can also be integrated with a network access control (NAC) component to ensure highly secure access to central data networks. New features include:.

* Wireless Service Provider Roaming (WISPr) Support - As a major European hotspot login protocol, VPN support of WISPr allows any device to connect to a hotspot without having to logon through an internet browser. A device will simply have access for any application on that device through the VPN, making logon and network interaction faster for the user.

* Multiple Certificate Support - Mobile workers often need to connect to several VPNs, requiring many certificates to authorise the device to the network. This function stores and automatically configures the single VPN client for any previously authorised certificates, increasing logon speed and simplifying VPN access.

* Streamlined Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) Card Support - 3G wireless connection speed for laptops is on the rise in Europe through major carriers such as AT&T. This function enables the client to maintain a VPN during idol and standby periods where typically the connection is lost. The 'wake up' time for a laptop is increased as well.

* Budget Manager for Wireless Minutes - Enables network administrators or users to monitor the costs of all available VPN connection types, including UMTS, GPRS and WLAN, and enforce limits on device airtime or cost. Users can configure dollar or minute budgets according to basic provider rates. If these set limits are exceeded, users will receive warning notices, or their VPN connection attempts will be hindered. The new component of the software also allows for the restriction or disabling of roaming.

The NCP Secure Enterprise Client provides one major update for users with the NCP Secure Enterprise Management to extend central policy support and network access management.

* Push / Manage Software Updates through LAN Connection - Enables network administrators to push and manage NCP software updates, configurations and certificates to any device on the network using an NCP client, with a VPN connection or without.
