What is the best VPN software today

Hi experts,

I am looking at purchasing a client VPN software that has built in Personal firewall, virus scanning software, content filtering and intrusion detection built in. Can someone advice me please.

We recently purchased a Nokia IP390 box which is being set up by an outside contractor. Do we just acquire the license for the Checkpoint VPN or purchase a different client software?

Generally you have no choice as to the client you use, it i determined by the device to which you are connecting, with a few exceptions. The Nokia running Checkpoint will require the Checkpoint client, and yes the client software is included with the CheckPoint mobile user licensing.
Excellent hardware and client by the way, one of the best.
