The following are features this VPN software for MacOSX offers to its users. One thing I love about Shimo, is that the software continues to add more user-friendly features with each updated version.
- Multiple Concurrent Connections
- Use Keychain for Passwords
- Certificate Management
- Advanced Notifications
- Automated Connections
- Global Keyboard Shortcuts
Shimo 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, our 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, smart cards or one-time passcode tokens, such as RSA SecurID, our VPN client for Mac provides the necessary toolset through Extended Authentication (XAUTH).
