Original Press Release:
First VPN Client Suite for Windows 7 in the World
NUREMBERG, Germany, November 17 -- NCP engineering GmbH in Nuremberg announces the release of the first universal IPsec VPN Client Suite for Windows 7. This software not only supports all 32 and 64 Bit Microsoft operating systems but also includes comprehensive performance features for easy and economical Remote Access such as: VPN Path Finder technology, optimisation for 64 bit systems and support for the latest drivers as well as WLAN roaming. The compatibility with VPN Gateways of all renowned manufacturers is also of utmost importance.
The NCP Secure Entry Client meets, in its latest version 9.2, the constantly growing needs of VPN Clients for 64 Bit Windows systems and complies with the main requirements of companies to only have to use one universal IPsec VPN Client in heterogeneous IT landscapes. The consistent operation and user interface reduces helpdesk costs and training costs. A highlight of the new version is the "NCP VPN Path Finder Technology". This performance feature allows users to also establish IPsec data connections behind firewalls which have a port configuration that usually makes it impossible to establish IPsec communication (e.g. in hotels or public hotspots). Therefore, there are no longer any issues to comprehensively implement an IPsec based security policy.
Further improvements in version 9.2 are: support for the newest Intel Wi-Fi driver and mobile broadband, the 64 bit optimization, WLAN roaming and "tip of the day". The 64 bit optimization increases data throughput by about 20%, WLAN roaming automatically chooses the strongest available access point with the same SSID and the "tip of the day" shows the user examples of the wide range of potential uses of the NCP VPN Client. Handling for user and administrator is also improved. Examples for these improvements are e.g. the optimized WLAN GUI and field intensity, profile exports and the revised 3G/UMTS configuration
The NCP Secure Entry Client offers, as the VPN Client Suite, coordinated communication and safety related performance features for universal Remote Access. The VPN Client offers, as a Client Suite, an intuitive, graphical user interface; its own dialler, a dynamic personal firewall and the integrated support of a large number of mobile connect cards. Teleworkers hence really get a true "one-click-solution". Comfort functions include budget manager, WISPr-support, automatic media type recognition, import of profiles of "foreign" VPN gateways and OTP mobile support reduce support costs and operating costs.
Companies can download a 30 day unlimited trial of the Client's version at http://www.ncp-e.com/en/downloads/software.html
