  • NCP’s Secure VPN Clients for Android are compatible with all common IPsec compatible VPN gateways (such as those from Cisco, Juniper, SonicWall, Sophos, AVM, Adtran, and Microsoft Server 2008 R2) and major communications and security standards including Internet Key Exchange (IKE) v1 and 2, PKCS#12 certificate support, XAUTH and split and full tunneling.

When used with NCP’s VPN gateway, its recently patented Path Finder technology ensures that the VPN connection can be established in challenging firewall and proxy settings.
