Free VPN Client Suite Available For Macs

NCP Engineering : 11 June, 2010  (New Product)
Strong authentication for operators of the Mac OS includes integrated firewall for secure access to corporate networks over VPN
NCP engineering announces the release of VPN Client Suite, NCP Secure Mac Client. The suite will provide businesses a VPN client which supports strong authentication and has an integrated personal firewall, NCP's VPN Path Finder Technology as well as Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS). IPsec VPN Client for Apple's Mac OS X, enables efficient handling and usage whilst providing 'end-to-end' security.

NCP's Secure Mac Client supports Mac OS X Leopard 10.5 (Intel) and Snow Leopard 10.6. The integrated personal firewall is active from system startup and allows users to define rules for ports, IP addresses and segments. 'Friendly Net Detection', provides automatic recognition of secure and insecure networks and activates the firewall rules needed. The innovative NCP VPN Path Finder Technology allows for a secure data connection even in situations where no IPsec VPN connection is possible. For example, behind firewalls, which port settings generally denied IPsec communication such as in locations including in hotels or other public hotspots.

Simon Ford, sales director Europe, NCP engineering comments: "After successful beta testing and customer demand, we are pleased to launch NCP Secure Mac Client. The suite offers enterprise features and possibilities, which far exceed the usual VPN features of a common client.

"As the security landscape continues to evolve, and reports that there is an attack every 4.5 seconds affecting a computer, ensuring VPN's are secure is imperative in the battle to keep the criminals away from the enterprise network. We offer the same features as provided in the long established NCP Secure Client for Windows."

At all times, the user is able to inform himself about all connection and security states displayed on the intuitive graphical user interface. The high security level is proven by the quality criteria FIPS. The VPN client has a cryptographic algorithm according to FIPS standard. The embedded cryptographic module is certified according to FIPS 140-2 (Certificate #1051).

NCP's Secure Entry Mac Client Licence is currently available free of charge (usual price: 120€). Currently, only the NCP Secure Entry Mac Client is released, the centrally manageable Enterprise Version will be available soon.
