Lots of news from NCP engineering, as we gear up for Interop 2012. Today, NCP announced the preview release of the first third-party IPsec VPN client available for Android 4.0. Now available for free download in the Google Play store, the client represents the next step forward in enterprise network security for workers using Android devices.
The VPN supports the Android 4.0 (“Ice Cream Sandwich”) platform, and will be available for preview through June 30, with further versions released later this year that include a number of other important features, such as central management capabilities for enterprise network administrators.
Earlier this week, NCP announced its Entry and Juniper Edition VPN clients now support Windows 8. The Windows 8-compatible clients boast identical benefits to NCP’s other IPsec clients, including being equipped with an intuitive graphical user interface, simple enough for any employee to understand and control. In fact, Microsoft too, is making usability a core component of Windows 8, outfitting its newest operating system with a revamped user interface optimized for both mobile and touch screen deployment.
