SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NCP engineering today announced the NCP Secure Enterprise macOS Client version 3.1 and the NCP Secure Entry macOS Client version 3.1 for secure virtual private network (VPN) connections. New features of the NCP macOS Clients include advanced authentication via fingerprint and the extended protection against authorized third-party access to an unlocked MacBook Pro.
As employees are increasingly accessing corporate networks from remote devices, secure data connections must be enforced to reduce the risk of cyberattacks. The NCP Secure macOS Clients allow employees to securely access corporate networks from anywhere in the world with data encryption. Ideal for mobile users, seamless roaming enables reliable and uninterrupted VPN connections even when switching between networks. In addition, an intuitive graphical user interface shows all connection and security states before and during data connections. The NCP Secure Enterprise Client version 3.1 also has a centrally managed personal firewall in place.
“The new NCP Secure macOS Clients provide enhanced security including fingerprint authentication,” said Patrick Oliver Graf, CEO of NCP engineering. “As a one-click solution, the IPsec client software automatically selects the appropriate firewall policy, controls internet connectivity, and initiates the setup of a VPN tunnel. NCP’s VPN Path Finder Technology ensures that a connection to the remote gateway can always be established. This provides secure communications for all corporate networks, even when employees are accessing sensitive information from remote devices.”
The NCP Secure Entry macOS Client version 3.1 is available for single users and small installations. The new Entry Client includes all of the functionality of the Enterprise Client except for the capability to be centrally managed. Compatible with all common VPN Gateways, the NCP Secure Entry macOS Client 3.1 provides a dynamic personal firewall, an integrated internet connector, and a GUI that looks and functions similarly across all devices.
