NCP Virtual Private Network Client Supports Android BYOD Security

By Jeff Cogswell  |  Posted 2013-05-10

The NCP VPN Client for Android 4.x is a full-function virtual private network client. Android natively supports VPNs, although not all hardware manufacturers include the VPN libraries on their devices. Check with your manufacturer first, or try the demonstration version of the client to be sure. This client allows you to create custom profiles, each with multiple options. Creating a profile simply requires you to provide a name and then fill in the options. The client lets you choose the Diffie-Hellman key exchange level, up to 2,048 bits. You can also choose extended authentication (XAUTH), as well as Internet Key Exchange versions 1 (for basic edition) and 2 (for premium edition). In addition, configurations can be imported, by saving the configuration on the SD card first, and the configuration can be auto-deleted after import. Statistics are available at runtime, showing you such information as the total bytes transmitted, and the security mode and full logs are available showing the connections, bytes received and more, along with a timestamp.
