We’ve been seeing a lot of discussion in the forums about Cisco’s IPsec VPN client (welcome to the party—you’re four years late). In 2010, a 64-bit client isn’t enough. Perhaps four years ago this would work, but not today. In today’s mobile world, users are constantly on-the-go and purchasing the latest and best devices—they need more than just a VPN client.
NCPs client was developed with both the user and administrator in mind. When an employee is away on business, they need to connect and remain connected to the network hassle-free. They need to be reassured that their desired device, whether it be a laptop, mobile phone, etc., will work with their VPN client and have access to the appropriate files, email, folders, etc. they need.
Overlapping subnets, roaming across networks and connections dropping shouldn’t be an issue. Users should be able to use important features, such as two-factor authentication, end-point security software and personal firewalls without any IT knowledge or help desk support. It should be a matter of a one-click and get connected. Will a 64-bit IPsec VPN client be enough to meet customers’ remote access needs? No, and we think you’ll agree.
