Hi all,

I would like to know whether there is a roadmap for integrating the remote access vpn client & the mobile access SSL vpn client in a single client with endpoint security.

Cause i feel there is a challenge to convince the customer to have 2 clients for IPsec & SSL.

can somebody please provide some insight.

IPSec VPN and SSL VPN clients tend to solve the same basic problem from different angles. IPSec tends to be used for clients you have some control over (i.e. your corporate-owned employee machines). SSL VPNs tends to be used on machines that aren't necessarily corporate assets and are most certainly not under direct corporate control.

What's the use case for having both an IPSec and SSL VPN client on a machine where both clients would connect to the same security gateway?
