NCP has announced that its secure enterprise VPN server is now available for use with all smartphones and tablet PCs.

In addition to enabling platforms to access company web applications via a standard web browser and SSL VPN, version 8.05 of the VPN gateway enables Android and iOS end-devices to connect via L2TP over IPsec or IPsec, respectively. The devices' integrated VPN client is able to set up a secure VPN connection to the NCP gateway.

Also, a web-proxy module now supports more features and is more compatible to web applications, with end-devices also able to display websites that were specially developed for the respective platform of the device. Starting with this version, the VPN thin client module (SSL VPN port forwarding) is also available for Mac OS X platforms.

NCP also released the new VPN gateway software for all common Linux 64 bit distributions. After a comprehensive code review, actions were taken to further increase stability and security. All customers using version 8.x are entitled to a free update.
