SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NCP engineering today announced the centrally managed Secure Enterprise macOS Client version 3.0 for secure virtual private network (VPN) connections. Supporting the macOS 10.13 High Sierra operating system, new features of the NCP Secure Enterprise macOS Client include IKEv2, initial configuration, optimization of the IPSec stack, and the option to enable FIPS inside encryption during installation.
Administrators who implement the NCP Secure Enterprise macOS Client will benefit from a more efficient and time-saving distribution process for their entire organization. After distributing and installing the VPN clients with an initial configuration file, the VPN client will connect to the NCP Secure Enterprise Management system and every user will receive an individual configuration. With full support of IKEv2, the IKEv2 Redirect is implemented and VPN clients can use Load Balancing mechanisms from other VPN gateways. Additionally, the client comes with a new GUI. The NCP Secure Enterprise macOS Client is designed for integrating mobile devices into a centrally managed security concept.
“Corporate networks must be enforced with secure data connections, especially as more employees access networks from remote devices,” said Patrick Oliver Graf, CEO of NCP engineering. “The new NCP Secure Enterprise macOS Client is ideal for the latest macOS operating system as it provides users with enhanced security from strong authentication, to data encryption, and easy VPN access. The setup of a VPN tunnel is automatically initiated with one click in the user-friendly interface. An appropriate firewall policy is then selected to protect connections. Employees who travel can also benefit from seamless roaming and auto-connect to their corporate network.”
The NCP Secure Enterprise Solution includes NCP’s enterprise VPN client suites, a scalable, hybrid IPsec/SSL VPN gateway, and a management system (SEM) to support organizations’ entire remote access infrastructure. The NCP Remote Access solution secures all communications to the corporate network while also allowing IT administrators to monitor for anomalies and centrally manage issues as they arise, including immediately revoking access in case of a breach.
