The new survey conducted by NCP engineering, which polled 490 users of its VPN software solutions from across the world, also asked participants what their ideal VPN solution would include.
Thirty-eight percent wished for an IPsec VPN client for Google Android-based devices and 24% wished for this for Apple’s iOS-based devices like the iPhone and iPad . Fourteen percent ranked seamless roaming, or the ability to sustain VPN connectivity while transitioning between different networks (e.g. 3G/4G, Wi-Fi, LANs), as their most desired new VPN functionality.
Other Key Findings
- The survey further showed that interoperability with third-party IPsec VPN gateways (64%) and seamless integration with existing VPN infrastructure (58%) as essential when selecting remote access technology.
- Ranking farther down the list, but still making a strong showing as valuable VPN functionality, was the quick implementation of individual end-user requirements (46%), followed by versatility to function in all remote access environments (31%).
So, what’s on your VPN wishlist?
