The tool provides encryption technology such as AES-256 which is even certified by governmental organizations, global enterprises and the military. But encryption is only as strong as its weakest link. As a consequence, hash algorithms include SHA-2, the latest set of cryptographic hash functions. Additionally, secure cryptographic key exchange over insecure or public channels is enabled using the Diffie-Hellman (D-H) method.
Likewise, passwords are often not sufficient to introduce security to a system. If your connection requires certificates or one-time passcode tokens, such as RSA SecurID, VPN client for Mac provides the necessary toolset through Extended Authentication (XAUTH).
There is no need for any additional window to have full control over your VPN connections. Shimo for macOS can easily be accessed over the menu bar of OS X: Connect and disconnect VPN connections, access statistics and accounting information, or notice the secured IP address of connected accounts.
User Experience is one of the core values of product design philosophy. Consequently, there are no complicated configuration dialogs or hardly comprehensible settings. Shimo – the most sophisticated VPN client for Mac – enables with its lean design access and control in a simple and easy way.
The tool supports every major VPN protocol that is currently available: The widely used CiscoVPN, the very secure OpenVPN and all standard-compliant IPSec connections. It also handles Point-to-Point Tunneling (PPTP VPN) and Layer 2 Tunneling (L2TP) protocols. Even Cisco’s new Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol AnyConnect is supported by Shimo – the most flexible VPN client for Mac. The program also enables you to establish encrypted Secure Shell (SSH) connections including port forwarding for secure web browsing.
There is no other VPN client for Mac which supports this variety of available protocols. If you want to have the all-in-one solution for your secure connections, the app is technology of choice. This feature is not only helpful, if you have to handle different types of connections, but rather in cases where your system administrator upgrades or changes the used protocol. With the app you are always prepared and ready to go.
With the VPN Client you are not restricted to one single VPN connection at a time. You can connect to multiple VPN endpoints simultaneously. Hence, the program is the favorite of power users and consultants. Complex network is easily manageable using the tool – the number one VPN client for Mac – as it is possible to setup multiple connections using various protocols. The app provides features, such as account search and categorization into groups, to easily handle and organize a large number of VPN accounts at the same time.
