New NCP IPsec VPN Client Software Versions Support Windows 8

NCP Engineering has released the Entry Edition and Juniper Edition of the IPsec VPN client software. The new versions of the NCP Secure Clients are capable of offering full support to Windows 8 (32-/64-bit).

They will be able to provide greater flexibility in device and operating systems to end users when they connect to their respective corporate networks.

Further, the NCP’s simple yet powerful VPN software enables a cost-effective upgrade from Windows XP/Vista/7 to Windows 8.

According to NCP officials, the Version 9.31 features an Access Point (News - Alert) Name (APN) management feature that eliminates need to configure the mobile access point from which end users access the Internet.

Users were originally required to manually change their APN settings when they changed SIM cards of different mobile networks before. Now, the new NCP IPsec VPN software takes over the task, automatically prompting the driver to search for and configure the APN via the NetID (News - Alert) of the SIM card.

The IPsec VPN client software features an intuitive graphical user interface that is easy to understand and control.

NCP’s solutions enable safe and secure connections to corporate networks, and eliminate the need to implement firewall settings, device compatibility, connection negotiation or policy requirements.

The NCP Secure Clients support mobile connect cards and one-time password token, while delivering certificate support via a public key infrastructure (PKI). They also provide a dynamic personal firewall, an Internet dialer/connector and enable seamless roaming on all network connections.

Recently, NCP engineering released a new version of its Secure Enterprise Management (SEM), software that optimizes remote access. SEM 3.0 enables powerful Two-Factor Authentication with a One-Time Password that users receive via SMS, and is based on the all-new NCP Advanced Authentication.

Each password is created by a random number generator within the NCP Advanced Authentication Connector, and is automatically canceled after use. This eliminates the need to use third-party solutions and enables Two-Factor Authentication with only a smartphone or suitable mobile device.
