One time password feature for first secure 64 bit VPN client for XP.

NCP Engineering : 17 February, 2008  (New Product)
Dual factor authentication and other strong security features included in secure client for Windows XP using VPN.
NCP Engineering has released the new version of its Secure Entry Client, the first software vendor to offer an IPSec VPN client for Windows XP in its 64 bit version.

Additional features are the 2-factor authentication solution OTP Mobile, as well as the client supporting certificates with 4096 bit key lengths.

The new NCP VPN Client therefore supports all current Microsoft operating systems: Windows Vista and Windows XP for 32/64 Bit, Windows 2000 as well as Windows Mobile and CE. As a result, integrated configurations and security measures can be built in that are independent of the operating system.

With the NCP Secure Client, universal security and communications software for implementation in any desired remote access VPN environment is now a reality. The software is compatible with VPN gateways from all well known vendors. The gateways are implemented anywhere gateway manufacturers offer no corresponding client for certain operating systems and customers need easy to use, universally applicable VPN clients.

OTP Mobile by T-Systems and T-Mobile use the existing mobile phone for 2-factor authentication. It calculates at the press of a button - completely without mobile radio connection - a one-time password, that the user enters in the login mask of the application. Moreover, user authentication with up to 4096 bit key lengths on the server and client side increase security levels when confronted with hacker attacks.

The NCP Secure Entry Client V. 9.03 offers extensive security functions: IPsec encryption with AES or 3DES, IPCOMP data compression, extended authentication (Xauth, EAP), support for digital certificates and hardware tokens, an integrated Stateful Inspection firewall with situation-dependent firewall rules, and 'Friendly Net Detection' for automatic detection of secure and non-secure networks. In addition, the Client has an intelligent automated WLAN mechanism that activates the appropriate profile for the currently present WLAN in background, for instance at a hotspot.
